2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. No clear date. Pours clear golden color. White head pretty much same as regular sculpin from what I Rmr. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, pepper, lemon citrus, habanero. Flavor is citrus and then just spice for me. I have very little tolerance for spicy food. This is no exception. Just too much for me. I can appreciate that this is a good beer. But I simply cannot do it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours lightly hazy golden-amber, with a 1-finger white head. Aroma of grapefruit hops mixed with some smoky chili pepper. Medium body with a mild oiliness from the peppers. Long finish with some lingering heat that builds as you drink it. Brief note of grapefruit hops up front, quickly giving way to smoky, sweet chili notes. Notable amount of heat at the back.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a finger and half of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is grain and a hint of pepper.
The taste is mild lemon and grapefruit bitter at first, then hot habanero in the middle to end. The heat is medium and finishes slow. Nice.
The texture is crisp.
Great use of the peppers.

At first I was at a loss and didn't like. Then it grows on u. Can only really have one at a time cause it has some kick to it. A good change of pace and goes great with a stogie

Clear copper/gold with big off white head. Citrus hop aroma with hint of the Habanero to come. Sweet malt backbone with a citrus hop balance. Habanero: sharp spicy bite, lingering green pepper in the finish. I enjoyed this beer (thanks dlovell2 for sharing), not sure if I’d want to go through a whole 6-pack though, I think a draft at a restaurant that serves fried food or a single bottle where they allow mixed-6 packs would be the way to go. Not really a "regular" brew or a session beer.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Smells like fresh armpit sweat. Flavor has no hints of citrus, apricot, or pine that I like in IPAs. The afterburn is unique (it’s actually spicy hot) and the only thing I really like about this beer. Yuck. But at least it’s kind of interesting.

Tap. Golden with small head. Doesn’t seem that hot with the first sip, but the heat builds. Pepper beers aren’t my thing, but I can appreciate that this is well done.

Nice heat...a potent burn that doesn’t stick around too long. The beer is crisp with a vegetal finish after the heat. Not my favorite Sculpin, but then spicy beers aren’t my thing just yet.

355 ml bottle @ Timo A. Thanks rosenbergh!
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Some grassy notes on the nose, hops, resin and citric fruits. The habanero kicks in right from the bat on the flavor, some resinous hops and caramel, orange and mild grapefruits, lingering and slightly burning habanero on the aftertaste. Very nice palate wrecker.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour avg gold with light orange hue. Nose innocent enough, some mango and tropical fruit hop, with a light green chili undertone. Taste comes out swinging, green pepper chilis followed by heat. Briefly some hop flavors from the nose, but then the heat continues through the finish. Some late sweet malt, but mostly light burn.
