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.

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.

(Draught at Beachwood) clear medium gold, fine white bubbles. Nose of habanero, hop candy, candied citrus zest, and light pine. Taste of candied citrus, pine, lightly spicy, warming plate linger.

UDBeernut (1602) - Near Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2013
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.

cpetrone84 (1276) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2013
On tap at Hunah Day. nose is mostly straight sculpin, hop explosion with a faint spice to it. Taste is much more spicy, extremely peppery and hot in the finish with the juicy hops up front. Spice is so strong and lingers.

jercraigs (7464) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
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

larryLSB (410) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - APR 28, 2013
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.

crossovert (6945) - Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2013
2 words: fuck yes. Tropical, habanero, medium to high spiciness, good throat tingle, bitterness adds to the heat. Fuck yes.

bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 24, 2013
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.
