3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ BeerJunction. Pours orangish dark golden with medium white head. Aroma is earthy, citrusy hops with a hint of spicy heat. Taste is clean light caramel malt that is quickly overwhelmed by sharp habanero heat. Hops appear under the spicy heat on the finish, but the peppers never relent in controlling the flavor here. Itís the Sculpin you know and love, with heavy pepper heat laid over it. Definitely unique, but much of the appeal of Sculpin was the light, aromatic, perfectly balanced hops and thatís mostly lost here to the heat.

Bottle. Has a slightly hazy amber color with an off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, peaches, grass and jalapeno. The flavor is sweet and fruity at first with grapefruit, and then it explodes of chili that lingers. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a medium bitterness. Iím sure itís a nice IPA in the base but the taste is dominated by chili. The aroma is interesting though. This ale is for the chili enthusiast, for me itís not very balanced.

Strong citrus aroma with hints of spiciness. Clear orange color with a small white head. Hop bitterness in the beginning with habanero spiciness joining in the fun soon after and lasting until the finish. A little bit of a burn at the end.

That's a spicy meat'a'ball! Pretty good light flavors, like a blonde ale, but the heat takes over and kinda overpowers the flavor. Interesting beer but I don't think I'd get it again unless I was specifically looking for a hot pepper beer.

Orange pour, off-white head. Nose is oranges, tropical fruits, fresh water, some chiles. Taste is oranges, well water, chiles. Some chile heat in the beginning and middle, a lot more lingering heat, especially in the throat on the swallow.

Pours hazy orange. Nice hoppy aroma, but wow this one is spicy, really burning as it hits the throat. Have to say the balance is off, way too spicy.

Itís a good brew just not one I could consume more than one of at a sitting. The heat doesnít really hit you until it gets to the back of your throat...after you swallow so itís a bit of a surprise because it does pack some heat. Not hot enough to make me want to run for the milk jug but still pretty warm.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat.Pours hazy dark golden with a big creamy white head. Spicy malty aroma at first, develops into distinct hot pepper. Taste is good soft malty to start with, but quiclky turns into a hot habanero burn, long lasting and totally dominates all malty elements. Nice beer in a way, will def purchase some more bottles.
