3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Tropical fruit and grapefruit rind aroma. Since there is no hint of heat in the aroma the first taste is a shock with spicy heat overwhelming the faint mango, tangerine, and grapefruit in the background. Heat lingers on the palate. If you enjoy spicy beers this is done very well but I am not a big fan of spicy foods in general so I am not likely to revisit this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle From Cost Plus. Hazy Golden amber in color. Sweet nose with a bit of tropical fruity scent. A little floral with a touch of pepper. Sweet heat up front. Very spicy in the finish. A touch of hops in the background. Pretty good for a pepper beer, but not something I’d want more than one of.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Backlog rating. Keg at Two Bit in BD Shoreditch, London. It pours a clean orange color with small white head. Aroma is floral, grassy, zesty, with grapefruit, lemon leaves. Taste is dry and hot, with notes of lemon, grapefruit, grass and chilies. Quite hot really. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, not my kind of beer

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From tap. Hazy pale amber with low head. Aroma of fruits and citrus, some pine and a peppery strain. Taste firstly bitter but that is quickly swept away by a massive onslaught of pepper that lingers. Hot as hell but really OK!

2.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Citrus hop aroma. Some faint peppery notes underneath. Light yellow like a typical ipa. Bam! Big ipa spice hits the lips and burns the back of the through to. Fun to try but can’t drink much (and I love spicy stuff).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Ballast Point Tap Takeover @ William K Tennispalatsi, Helsinki. Pours a hale orange with a decent, white head. Aroma is caramel, citrus, light vegetable and habanero. You can smell the pepper and hotness. Taste is caramel, vegetable, habanero, some citrus. Fiery. Good burn at the back of the throat. Pepper doesn’t dominate the flavor too much.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours clear, yellow with a two finger high, white head.
Nose: Pine, citrus, orange, honey and habanero.
Taste: After all I’ve heard about this my first thought is: "This feels like a ordinary sculpin" - THEN it kicks in! Wholy #%¤"! This is hot! A lot of habanero warmth. I have a lot of trouble feeling anything else... maby a little bit of sweet caramel malt. But mostly HABANERO!
Body: Medium body (I think). It’s hard to tell. My mouth and throat is out of order...
The hot habanero stays for a long time and makes me all warm. I like this!
To bad I can’t say that about the taste... I mean, Sculpin is a beatiful IPA and with this i’ts all about habanero! I love habanero but Sculpin even more...
