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.

Great aroma and color...LOVE the heat on the way down, almost cools you off. Nice to keep on hand for guests.

Pretty cool gimmick beer. All the usual sculpin qualities are there, but then you have this fruity habenero addition. It tastes pretty damn good, and surprisingly the heat is substantial. It warms the throat like liquor. Good beer, but not nearly as sessionable as the base IPA.

12 oz bottle served in a tulip. The beer is a cloudy amber orange with an inch of white head that leaves nice lacing as it disappears. Aroma is tropical fruits, citrus, caramel, breads, and pepper. Taste is very interesting. Citrus and tropical fruit right up front followed by a nice caramel malt. The tropical flavors of habanero peppers is right there immediately and continues to develop with the beer. Spicy notes slowly creep in and remain on the lips, throat, and tongue. The beer has a pretty average mouthfeel and finishes dry and spicy. This is definitely not a beer I will session all night but overall I really enjoyed it.

Draft pour into a pint glass. The beer is a clear copper color with a white head of foam. The aroma is fruity sweet and just a mild habanero pepper influence. The more I drink, the more heat I encounter, so it really builds up, but it starts more sweet. Lip tingling heat. Some stomach heat as well. Medium body and medium carbonation.

Pours a golden yellow with slight white head. Aroma is weak malts. Taste is strong hot peppers initially, weakens to some caramel, slight citrus. Unusual and habanero is definitely present.

Hazy golden and a filmy head. Greasy, light malt buzz. Nothing much difference anxtu9n to the normal. Firm vibrant peppery butt in on the initial taste. Fizzing burn through the palate that doesn’t settle easily. Lean brassy bitter edge but a stifling burn. Eeesh. Keg, Brewdog, Edinburgh.

Keg at Brewdog Edinburgh. Pours almost clear amber. Nose is sweet fruits, green pepper. Taste is green pepper, sweet malts and then the chili builds up and its all about that. Quite, or I could say really, strong chili in a beer, overpowering the excellent ipa. I dont see the point of this. There are nice balanced chili beers, this is not one of those.

Keg at BD Sheps Bush, 11/06/15. Clear golden with a decent off white covering. Nose is green pepper, light fart, straw, faint citric twist. Taste comprises green chilli, not lot else coming through, faint bread, lemon, straw, orange. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a throat scrape of green chilli heat. Ok for style.

Appearance: clear light gold-to-orange, with a scant white creamy head. Aroma: grapefruit, orange pith, resin, pine, floral honey, light graham cracker, apricots (marmalade?), and a muted whiff of the pending heat. Taste: grapefruit, mango, pineapple, maybe some passion fruit, with light caramel, then a wave of apricot and pine; all that comes and goes pretty quickly, and then a tidal wave of punishing, searing pepper spray punches me in the uvula. Finish: IPA notes fade away quickly, leaving only the ninth circle of hell that burns my tongue to ash, and a quickly growing tide of regret. Notes: I love spicy food. I love habaneros. But I would only give this beer to someone I hated. Managed half the bottle (because I apparently hate MYSELF), and the rest actually worked very nicely as an addition to my barbecue baked beans. Bottle from Norm’s in Vienna, Virginia.

Amber color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, floral hops, citrus, pepper. Taste of muted citrus fruits, some pine, spicy finish.
