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.

fonefan (33333) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2011

Cask (gravity) @ GBBF 2011, Great British Beer Festival, Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London, England.

Clear medium yellow orange colour with a average, frothy - fizzy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, pale malt, chili, sweet chili fruit. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and heavy bitter with a long long duration, heavy heavy chili burn. To much for me ! Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. IMO just mostly undrinkable. [20110802]

Theis (12759) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2011 - Tuesday. Clear golden/amber - white head. High chili taste - you can almost smell it. Nice flowery and citrus aroma, light malty sweetness..... everything is killed by the habanero !!!

Dedollewaitor (13390) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2011
Cask @ GBBF, 2011. Pours clear golden with a small off white head. Nose is hot and spicy. Crazy hot and burning flavor. Chili pepper and tabaso sauce. Not drinkable by any means.

Scopey (5528) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2011. It pours golden yellow, with a thin white head. The nose is habanero chili pepper, pine and sweet resin. The taste is like chomping down on a habanero. Lots of pepper warmth that make eyes water. This is a one dimensional beer dominated by one flavour. Interesting nonetheless. Enjoyable to watch unsuspecting people taste this.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 9, 2011
Cask@GBBF2011. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, sweet malty with a bunch of peppery notes as well. Flavour is floral, fruity and has got an extreme burn to it in the finish and aftertaste. Utterly shite and unbalanced flavour.

ekstedt (5215) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2011. Clear golden. Nice pine/apricot/citrus hop aroma; no warning of what is about to come. Luckily my fellow raters warned me, so I only took a small sip. Yet, this ruined my taste buds for several minutes. What an idiotic and offensive gimmicky beer.

Cask at GBBF 2011. Clear golden coloured with a small white head. Fruity aroma of hops, grass and pine needles. Fruity and burning flavour of chili pepper. Burning finish.
