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!

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

danlo (1848) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2015
330ml bottle from Brewdog online store. Orange amver colour, white foam head and aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, hop resins with a spicy edge. Taste is malt caramel, mango and citrus hop resiny bitterness quickly followed by a burst of chilli heat. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, lingering hot chilli finish. Quite drinkable if you like chillies.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

22.11.2015, 0,35l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is mild fruity, leafs, wet grass, dried fruits, hops, sap, minerals, orange, light malts. Taste is slightly dry grassy, leafs, grass, light malts, hops, sap, minerals, grassy chillies. Medium bitterness, slightly dry grassy chili mouthfeel with a pretty fast longlasting chili touch to it. Fair enough.

gunnar (6919) - Sandnes, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2015
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.
