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.

Tap at Ballast Point. The beer pours to a dark amber glowing golden body with a white head. The aroma is simply 100% Sculpin with no peppers. The flavor is Sculpin, but it showcases the delicious flavor of the habanero pepper. I thought it had some heat, but not in that way that most of the spicy beers are (green peppers and hot). This beer was a marvelous rendition in that the pepper component came through as expected, rather than a nasty green pepper with heat. It actually blended quite well, and was a highlight of the evening!

Has a real nice steady burn to it. Maybe a little lacking in the overall flavor but good.

Bottle. Pours a brilliant clear gold with an off-white head. Citrus hops with a habanero spiciness in the taste and aroma. Nicely hot mouthfeel throughout.

12oz pour. Very similar smell as that of the original, with a hint of noticable habanero. First sip is strongly Sculpin like...for the first half-second. The habanero kicks in very quickly and lingers for a while. This is not a beer for the faint of heart.

I will preface thus by saying this wasn’t my favorite beer, however it is exactly as described and we’ll executed. Nose is earthy, floral, and dominated by habaneros. Thin white head, golden in color with sediment. Taste is habanero, habanero followed by a slight hop profile. Palate begins with some hop bitterness and then the tip of your tongue tingles and the heat sticks in the back of your throat. This bottle was pretty hot, probably wouldn’t want more than one. Might be good paired with spicy Mexican or Thai food.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2016 Garrafa 355ml. Bastante turva, um palha cor de mel espesso e opaco. No aroma sente-se o lúpulo e no sabor é bastante marcante o picante da pimenta habanero, que permanece. Muito diferente de qualquer cerveja que já tomei, é interessante mas cansativa. Não imagino beber-se muito dela.

12 oz pour from chilled bottle into Spiegelau IPA. Golden, hazy, off-white head. Sharp, spicy nose. Taste too. Very spicy. Fairly light body, dry. Harsh beer.

On tap at Bier Bier, Helsinki. Almost clear golden with a moderate, white head. Fairly modest hoppy aroma with citrus and tropical fruits. Feels ordinary and quute boring at first, but then the habanero kickd in. Nice chili kick, both sin flavour and the pleasant burn it gives. Medium sweet with fairly pleasant hoppy flavours and a nice chili burn. Nice one!

It made my lips and tongue tingle, there is no dought that they used some habanero’s a bit to much for me.

En mycket bra IPA i grunden, som kickar in med en rejäl habanero-fest. Jag gillar särskilt det faktum att mjölk och öl rekommenderas för att släcka törsten till kryddstark mat. Här får man så att säga allt i samma glas. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
