4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very intrigued seeing this many times before. Didnít originally want to however, as "spicy" beers have been gimmicky in my opinion. I took a chance as the regular Sculpin is very good.
Aroma - is of the citrus variety hops, just a slight bit of pine.
Appearance - nice clean coppery body with a big full head that sustains and laces throughout.
Taste - is wonderful. In the front it has a nice citrus quality, with slight malts in the middle and end. Then the spice comes in late, and is not like a (spice) but obviously from some other ingredient obviously habaneros. There also some complimentary ingredients a variety of drupe fruits. Really tasty.
Palate - one concern I had was a potential unpleasantness, either an acid reflux or production of phlegm. Not at all the case. The feel was complex - started with the dominant flavors and was absent of the heat wave. Then the heat it rushes in and gives just enough buzz to be enjoyable. The body light, texture neither thin nor oily - but consistent w/ the typical IPA styles, carbonation was lively, finish long w/ heat - and not much bitterness to speak of.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Orange yellow body with a white head of tiny bubbles. Aroma of grapefruit but dominated by the spicy habanero peppers. The taste was as expected a good dose of hops but the peppers overpowered everything. The heat persisted through the aftertaste and I have a feeling Iíll be experiencing this one tomorrow too. Overall this seems too gimmicky to be worth trying again.

Bottle. Has a slightly hazy amber color with an off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, peaches, grass and jalapeno. The flavor is sweet and fruity at first with grapefruit, and then it explodes of chili that lingers. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a medium bitterness. Iím sure itís a nice IPA in the base but the taste is dominated by chili. The aroma is interesting though. This ale is for the chili enthusiast, for me itís not very balanced.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strong citrus aroma with hints of spiciness. Clear orange color with a small white head. Hop bitterness in the beginning with habanero spiciness joining in the fun soon after and lasting until the finish. A little bit of a burn at the end.

That's a spicy meat'a'ball! Pretty good light flavors, like a blonde ale, but the heat takes over and kinda overpowers the flavor. Interesting beer but I don't think I'd get it again unless I was specifically looking for a hot pepper beer.

Orange pour, off-white head. Nose is oranges, tropical fruits, fresh water, some chiles. Taste is oranges, well water, chiles. Some chile heat in the beginning and middle, a lot more lingering heat, especially in the throat on the swallow.

330ml bottle from Brewdog online store. Orange amver colour, white foam head and aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, hop resins with a spicy edge. Taste is malt caramel, mango and citrus hop resiny bitterness quickly followed by a burst of chilli heat. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, lingering hot chilli finish. Quite drinkable if you like chillies.

Pours hazy orange. Nice hoppy aroma, but wow this one is spicy, really burning as it hits the throat. Have to say the balance is off, way too spicy.

Itís a good brew just not one I could consume more than one of at a sitting. The heat doesnít really hit you until it gets to the back of your throat...after you swallow so itís a bit of a surprise because it does pack some heat. Not hot enough to make me want to run for the milk jug but still pretty warm.
