2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orange/amber with small bubbly white head. Aroma had some light citrus notes, earth, and pepper. Flavor was mainly heat and pepper spice (and I love hot stuff). Just too over the top with the pepper, dirt, earth, and the citrus was over-powered and nearly non-existent. Glad I got to try it, just nothing I would ever get again. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation. Pure heat to finish.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2015 Awesome awesome beer with a great spicy palate. You love the sculpin, you likeness spicy, you like the ipa? Spicy sculpin is great!
Clear orange with a slightly thin but ok head finally from a bottle! Aroma is a spicy sculpin, which is pretty good. Habanero dominates the flavor with the heat. Wow do I love this beer.

Draught. Clear golden, whitish in head. Fruity citrus and greenish vibes in aroma. Habanero burning mostly. Interesting though. On the right ocassion this works I would presume.
Citrus and burning chili in aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours orange-amber. White head, good lacing. Aroma is citrus hops, habanero spice. Flavor is briefly Sculpin mango hop, then it just turns straight into habanero spiciness. Spicy, but not overwhelming. It’s okay, I’m glad I tried it, but I’m considering pouring it down the drain. Is that terrible? I just don’t know..

12 oz. bottle split 3 ways. Pours gold with a good white head and some legs. Citrus hop aroma with no hint of what lurks in the glass. For about a heart beat the flavor is all tropical fruit and citrus, then, holy shit, the habaneros kick in. Medium bodied with heat on the tongue and lips. A palate wrecker, but fun.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Clear golden color with a thick bubbly white head. Aroma is tropical fruit and hot peppers. Certainly a little bit spicy. Also a bit of citrus and mango. Very little in the way of bitterness. Pretty interesting. Finished very cleanly.
