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.

DSG (7625) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/20/15] Draught at Ballast Point Old Grove in San Diego. Clear golden. Pleasant fruity hops aroma with a vegetal chili note. Flavor has fruity hops and a huge vegetal hot chili attack on the palate. Medium-bodied. Undrinkable.

Bule (1108) - California, USA - MAR 15, 2015
12oz bottle pours a yellow amber color with a bit of head. Habanero in the aroma. Very intense habanero flavor that overpowers everything. More chili in this beer than any other I've tasted. Lips are burning. The chili flavor tastes like fresh habaneros, not just the usual burning sensation of other chili beers.

acearl (414) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2015
12 oz bottle, earth brown hue with diminishing white creamy head, first this that stands out is the green pepper odor it dominates the faint sculpin hop smell which is typically citrus and passion fruit, it tastes of green raw green bell pepper but with the bit of a habanero, i love spicy and i love IPAs but not like this, interesting\unique but would not want more another one

highibus (752) - Vail, Arizona, USA - MAR 15, 2015
On tap in the gas lamp dist. Pours clear light carmel color with thin white head. Aroma is kind of muted from regular sculpin. Flavor is up front heat and hops. Coats the tongue but clears right after with just a lingering heat. I love the combo of ipa and spice. Great beer.

PriorL (2488) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2015
Sample at S&G goes Brussels 2. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, small stable white head. NOSE: hoppy, fruity, pine, balanced. TASTE: peppery, over the top!! Dries out completely. Too too much!

Concealer (906) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle. Clear copper gold with a thick, foamy, off-white head that lasts and laces. Aromas of vegital notes, green bell pepper, light pine and spicy heat. Flavor is spicy hot pepper, green bell pepper, grass, pine, light biscuit, cracker, and citrus. Medium bodied, smooth with a dry, hot, bitter finish.

3/11/15. Bottle. Sorry, not my idea of a beer. Pepper instantly burned out my palate. Couldn't taste a thing after the first sip. Totally respect Brewers for pushing boundaries but don't ask me to drink all of them. Someone must like it otherwise they wouldn't be charging $14 a six. Glad I only bought one bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very interseting spin on one of my all time favorites. Aroma is of pepper, habanero, heat. Pours an amber orange with a medium head. This beer packs a punch! was definitely surprised by the strong heat. More of a novelty, I love spicy foods but can harld fnish one bottle

Danyel (1319) - Colorado, USA - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear copper/ orange with white heD. Aroma of chile heat, spicy peppers, green. Taste is spicy, lots of pepper heat, medium bodied, medium carbonation. A big hot , lingering finish. Overall, fun to try and nice flavors but I won’t even be able to finish half of it.

Nsanders (682) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle. Gold with a decent amount of carbonation and thin white head. Peaches, waffles, vegetal and dried peppers. Momentary malty sweetness before the big peppery burn kicks in. Body is heavier with a soapy feel. Not too spicy, but almost enough to make you want a non-spicy beer chaser.
