3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is hop obscured by pepper. Color was a bit pale for an ipa, but otherwise characteristic ipa orange with a large white head. Taste is immediately pepper, with a finishing hop sweetness. Palate is full of fun burn. Probably the best pepper beer I've had, butter than most pale pepper tries.

Aroma of habenero, citrus and pine. Pours amber with light white head. Sweet, bitter and spicy. The spice is much less dramatic than last yearís version, its actually drinkable without getting heartburn. Its much more enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft pours golden amber capped by a slight off white head that leaves some lacing. Nose of pepper. Taste is pure heat, peppers, and some citrus on the finish. The heat is strong and lingering. An impresssive example of what can be done, but this is virtually a beer one could never turn into a session.

2013-04-20. Modest aroma, light spice, hops. 7+ Flavour is briefly lovely, citrus hops are a glimpse of something. Then burny... jeebus f-ck! Oh god, why did I drink this! Average palate. A perfectly good IPA ruined. On tap at Coles, Buffalo

On tap at the Public House at ATT Park during a heartwrenching loss to the D-Backs. Poured a nice golden orange with a medium off white head. Nose was hoppy and spicy, that fresh pepper thing going on, and of course the taste had that fire to it, with a long lasting burn. Very good stuff, could get addicted to the pepper beer thing.

2 words: fuck yes. Tropical, habanero, medium to high spiciness, good throat tingle, bitterness adds to the heat. Fuck yes.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours amber gold with a hoppy aroma. Med body. Flavor is quite hot. Not ghost chili, but hot. Goes well with the malt and hop, though parsing the hop profile is not to be done. Gives a bit of a burn, but not necessarily more than a major NW DIPA. The best thing is itís not overdone. Iím sure I would never guess this to be Sculpin on a blind taste, but it works really well.
