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.

Pours an orange color with a small white head and a crisp fruity smell of grapefruit and orange with a little pine smell. Taste is very dry with flavors of citrus and a little orange peel sweetness and floral hoppiness of an IPA. Very spices harbanero flavor that fades until you take the next sip. Gives you mouth a warm and dry feeling that would go great with the taste of a grilled burger. The "Big Bang Theory" would have a very warm experience with this beer....this is not an everyday beer.

Watching the guys on Big Bang Theroy last night drinking Grapefruit Sculpin got me to wanting that, but the only Sculpin I had left was the Habanero. Turns out to be MUCH different. It pours orange with a little head, like other versions of Sculpin. The aroma is more or less like regular Sculpin, with the addition of spices, black pepper. The flavor is big on hot habanero. That’s really all I can taste. It isn’t bad, but it isn’t what I really want in a beer.

Pours semi-clear golden yellow with a hint of orange. White head fades fast. Aroma is grapefruit and orange citrus hops with notes of peppery habanero. Warming brings in some sweetness. Taste has a very mild caramel malt backbone running under some bitter city's hops, by the star is the smokin' hab pepper! I gots a hot one. Spicy and peppery down the throat and it lasts a bit. A truly interesting beer. Don't think about having more than one. Style points for sure.

1/2 pint on tap @ One Pint Pub. Pours clear golden with a low head. Aroma is malts, fruits and some habanero. Flavor is malts, fruits, loads of habanero and some hops. This must have a higher scoville rating than Tabasco! Burns your lips. Great!

Tap. Citrus and tropical fruit on the nose. Take a sip and the habaneros kick in. Lots of heat! Interesting, albeit fewer habaneros would do good as they are a bit overpowering.

Bottle at Queens Head. Stinging chili aroma with some floral hops underneath. The taste is heavily habanero with some grapefruit, pineapple and pine. Really spicy, but quite balanced actually.

Wow, this is hot! Aroma is a nice citrus with a hint of spice. The heat and hops hit you right in the face. Burning hot finish, over the top.

(Keg at One Pint Pub, 20151002) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, sweetness, pine, bell peppers and malts. Palate was medium bodied and burning with medium carbonation. Flavours were bell peppers, sweetness, fruitiness, malts, pine and bitterness. Aftertaste had chilli, sweetness and bitterness. A very burning brew but not really a bad one. Drinkability was not good.
