14 oz pour at bier thirty. Poured liked a typical ipa with a thin white head. My nose canít smell much but that might be my fault. First sip and the habanero explodes in your mouth. Salty and hot. Iím good for one glass and no more.

On tap at bier thirty. Hops is not really prevalent. The habanero is though. I can not find a hot food that beats me so I like this beer. Nose is of habanero and warms the mouth. But for the weak be careful.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Golden with a white head - Hot peppery aroma with perhaps a hint of hop - the taste is just hot liquid peppers that stings - The hotness just goes into a long finish that is olmost never ending - This was just a pepper liquid that stings and just dont taste anything else than pepper, and it was not that good either

Draft at Dutchís. Pours a clear golden color with a medium plus sized white head. The aroma and flavor have quite a bit of peppery heat, citrus and tropical fruit hops try to come through. I get that this is a polarizing kind of beer, but I happen to enjoy the peppery beers. The burn is lasting, but the fruity notes linger as well.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Draft. Let me start by saying that Sculpin is one of my all time favorite beers. This however is absolutely terrible. Poured cloudy. Smelled like rotten peppers. Oily and way too spicy for my taste. Just my opinion.

A golden amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, interesting mix of biscuit malt, floral hops, and hot pepper, nice. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with floral hops and loads of hot pepper, burning, not bad. On tap at Breukelyn Bier Merchants.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at a sampling event. From notes. Slight citrus hops and grains start out. Then immediately to very hot pepper notes. Very good, but nothing I would drink again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ BeerJunction. Pours orangish dark golden with medium white head. Aroma is earthy, citrusy hops with a hint of spicy heat. Taste is clean light caramel malt that is quickly overwhelmed by sharp habanero heat. Hops appear under the spicy heat on the finish, but the peppers never relent in controlling the flavor here. Itís the Sculpin you know and love, with heavy pepper heat laid over it. Definitely unique, but much of the appeal of Sculpin was the light, aromatic, perfectly balanced hops and thatís mostly lost here to the heat.
