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.

On tap at the Stone 17th anniversary festival. Golden in color, clear, and with a small white head. Chili, green bell pepper, pine cones, peaches and a faint malty touch in the aroma. Loads of chili warmth on the palate, full body. Nice carbonation. Burning finish with some ipa flavors. Chili, pine cones and some malty flavors initially. Way too warming this one, but still nice. 130817

Tap. This is a novelty beer for me. It seems like a waste of sculpin because it has you focusing on the habanero and you lose the hops flavors. The spiciness it leaves behind in your mouth just seems wrong for a beer. Glad I tried a 4 oz sample. No need to do it again.

Draft - pours yellow/amber w/frothy white head. Nice grapefruit and tangerine notes in the nose. Grapefruits, tangerines and a nice balance of habanero peppers in the mouth. The pepper is quite nice and not too overpowering. It's there and you can't miss but it adds a wonderful affect to a great beer. I like it!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ljus orange med vitt skum. Doft: Humle, mera humle, barr, skogsjord, ananas. Smak: Humle, trä, barr, jord, mandarin, apelsin skal. Undrar om det som stod på kranen stämde litet grann....

GIJOE (574) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - AUG 4, 2013
I wanted to like this beer. I love habaneros and I love beer, and I made a chocolate habanero stout once that I liked, but this was just weird for me. The flavors didn't blend. It was like biting a pepper and drinking a beer separately and hoping for marriage of flavors. Didn't work for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

keanex (1379) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - AUG 3, 2013
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Clear amber body with a short but creamy light tan head.
Aroma: Orange, grapefruit, and pineapple with hints of heat from the habanero.
Taste: Spicy right away with grapefruit throughout. The heat builds up pretty strongly by the finish and lingers.
Palate: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Too much heat for me, this really sticks around for a bit.

Draft at Jerry’s in Chicago. Well, Sculpin is delicious, I don’t need to talk a lot about that (basically, good hops and low malts). But here you have a well integrated burn form the pepper. Fun stuff, not crazy pepper but nice burn and some light pepper flavor.
