COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Sculpin IPA is a great example of what got us into brewing in the first place. After years of experimenting, we knew hopping an ale at five separate stages would produce something special. The result ended up being this gold-medal winning IPA, whose inspired use of hops creates hints of apricot, peach, mango and lemon flavors, but still packs a bit of a sting, just like a Sculpin fish.

Fat på Ginger man. Fina Ipa dofter av tropisk frukt o habanero chili. Du känner direkt chilin upp i gommen. Det bara bränner till. Något för kraftig chilismak för att det skall njutbart. Ändå en trevlig bekanskap.

Bottle. Good grapefruit and floral citrus hop aroma with only a faint trace of the peppers. Pours clear golden colored with a large soapy white head with good retention and lacing. Starts with good grapefruit citrus and floral hops with the peppers slowly starting to build. Finishes dry with the hoppiness quickly overpowered by the strong habanero heat that lingers on the back of the palate for a long time, but oddly tolerable and refreshing. Good twist on an already excellent ipa.

bottle. clear orange with a small white head. nice floral aroma and no sign of pepper. flavor has big kick of peppery heat, green pepper meat, floral hops, a little malty sweetness. medium body. heat gets less intense 1/4way through the pint. wouldn’t really want to drink more than 1 of these, but it was fun to try it.

Bottle. Golden crisp pour, same appearance as a regular sculpin. The mild heat layers on quickly gulp by gulp. Oddly refreshing. Fiance dislikes it, I enjoy it thoroughly.

bigtaster (791) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 31, 2015
From bottle, pale slightly couldy copper orange with off-white head. Nose is peppers, fruit, oranges, grapefruit. Medium body, slight caramel sweetness, slight bitterness, heast starts at the back of the throat and builds through the beer, ending with the while mouth burning. Moderate to high spiciness for beer, well done.

Bottle. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma was hoppy with peppers, pine and light fruit. Flavor was extremely spicy with hot chili peppers, citrus and mild pine.

AWISLguy (1694) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle from Sendik’s in Brookfield. Pours a clear orange with an off-white head. Nose had fresh sweet grapefruit and some pine. Taste is heavily peppery without much other stuff underneath. There is some citrus in the very beginning of the mouthfeel and perhaps in some sweet malt, however pepper is the main component and pepper is the strong finish. Medium-bodied and a bit sticky. Finishes long and peppery with a bit of bitterness. This is interesting, with a great nose, but the pepper is too overwhelming. 14.2

12oz bottle. Looking at reviews, this is a polarizing beer. I’m a huge pepper/heat fan, so not surprisingly I fall on the positive side. The other side consists of wimps. If you’re a pansy who can’t take the slightest bit of heat, just don’t drink a habanero beer! The appearance is average, orangish-golden with a fast-fading one-finger head. The aroma has grapefruit and tropical fruit notes with a hint of habanero. The flavor has great heat! I’m glad they didn’t hold anything back. It matches well with a slightly sweet malt base and bright fruity hoppiness. The palate is really nice. Medium-bodied and crisp with a burning sensation. This is freaking badass! I love it and would drink it all day. Wimps need not apply.

Smallish head. Light ruby red body. Not a very potent aroma. A bit of happiness. But, no pepper to be found. Quite the contrary 8n the flavor. An immediate blast of habend flavor followed by some heat on the palate. Absolutely ZERO balance. While this won’t be drain pour, it’s certainly not one I’ll drink again unless someone buys it for me and doesn’t tell me what it is.

had on cask, draft, and bottle .. . gold .. solid foam .. . sculpin with heat, no real flavour difference other than that .. . a novelty, nothing i’d want again .. . . wooden teeth don’t work well.
