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.

Pours a golden yellow color with big fizzy head. Aromas of peppers, yeast, and hops. Flavor start nice hoppy pale and then the heat sets in...

I prefer the unscathed Sculpin. This one has a serious burn, and it also overwhelms the lovely floral hoppiness. But still, the pepper flavor is interesting and not bad like some other raters have said. For what it is -- a hot pepper beer -- it is a good one.

SpringsLicker (3450) - Tennessee, USA - APR 1, 2016
Mostly clear gold with an off-white head. Citrus hop aroma. Pepper flavor followed quickly by pepper heat. Nice heat, but very peppery. The Sculpin gets a bit lost underneath the pepper treatment.

How : bottle Appearance : hazy light orange, small white head. Aroma : citrus peel, chili, black peppercorn, herbs, grass. Palate : medium body, average to low carbonation. Intense chili flavour, gives a hefty sting!

Aroma: Peppers. Not the shake kind. Piney hops. Appearance: orange-gold Taste: solid. sculpin. heat builds with the hops, leaves, then returns in the throat Palate: oily ... good Overall: Hot beer. Good for those who can handle spice. Not sure how you couldn’t like hot things.

Flaska från SB. Kristallklar orange vätska med högt vitt skum. Som vanliga Sculpin känner jag granskott, kåda, apelsinskal och grape. Men här finns redan i doften en märkbar ton av habaneron. Fruktig chili, chilifrön, röd paprika och viss hetta. Kroppen är något åt det större hållet. Bra med hetta på en gång från habaneron. Tar ganska stor plats i smakbilden och ger de annars mer typiska IPA-tonerna en plats i bakgrunden. Är inget stor fan av chili i öl, så den här går inte heller riktigt hem hos mig. Får hålla mig till vanliga Sculpin fortsättningsvis.

0,33 bottle from vinmonopolet - Pours a nice red color. Aroma is like regular sculpin. Hoppy and nice, with slight paprika nose.The flavor is all pepper. Tons of habanero and jalapeno flavors. Kinda a novelty beer i’d say.

Lowe1983 (1517) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma is pepper, citrus hops, and caramel malts. Flavor it’s citrus hops up front. The spice builds by the end and has some heat. The bitterness from the hops compliments the heat from the habanero.

Satyroneto (305) - BRAZIL - MAR 19, 2016
Cor dourada com tons alaranjados e um pouco turva; espuma branca de baixa formação e baixa persistência com pouco lacing. Aroma cítrico intenso de frutas amarelas (limão, tangerina e um pouco de damasco) e uma leve base de caramelo; também se percebe em segundo plano um aroma picante próprio da pimenta adicionada. Sabor com uma leve base de caramelo com intenso cítrico seguindo o aroma; final com amargor moderado logo substituído por uma leve picância que evolui para ardor; retrogosto marcado por ardência persistente da pimenta Habanero. Corpo médio e média carbonatação. Drinkability prejudicada devido ardência persistente e cumulativa no retrogosto.
