3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Tustin Brewing. Looks like Sculpin, kinda smells like Sculpin, tastes like.... Holy crap that burns!! :). Very interesting twist on one of my favorite beers. It really is hot, but you get used to it after a bit and itís really good with food (hot wings!). Itís kind of hard to pick out the nuances through the heat, but itís the best chili beer Iíve ever had.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2013 Draft sample poured a golden color with a thin coat of off white head. Aroma has big citrus, pine resins, and a huge hit of habanero. Mouth feel is medium and the carbonation average. Flavor again has a huge hit of habanero spice, citrus, juicy tropical hops, and a finish with heat that just lingers. Whoa this has a bit of heat to it so much so it is hard to take in the hops.

Sampler at capones on draft..light golden color.billed as piney hops hat turn to rich sweet malt and finishes hot on back end..this sure starts out like regular sculpin with a solid ipa nose..really donít get the pepper presence on nose..but..this has one of the most intense crazier finishes on a beer that I have had..sculpin flavor is completely taken over by the spicy peppery presence..glad I only had 6 oz of this because my mouth was feeling the habanero big time..can see how pepper lovers might find this more enjoyable..for me it was way over the top in a bad way..

Pours hazy golden color with medium tight white head that laces all the way down. Aroma is sweet juicy flowery hops with no real hint of what is to come. Taste is dank hoppiness with biting grapefruit citrus and a nice malty backbone. Follow through turns to pepper heat and all else is lost from then on. I guess it is an interesting beer if you love the pepper heat or just something different in general. Iím a big fan of regular sculpin and I personally wouldnít want to mess with it much. Overall kind of hard to rate as the pepper really takes over and thatís really all you get from then on. Starts off like regular complex sculpin and then blows up with heat.

On at Caponeís. Poured a golden color with a white head. Yep, thereís habanero in this one. The hoppy IPA was in the background, but this one ended in too much of a spicy burn for me to finish.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a little lighter than I remember regular Sculpin though. A transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells of hops and spicy pepper. Tastes like it smells, only more pepper forward, with an average mouthfeel. Alright, but the habanero masks the delicious base.
