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!

1/2 pint on tap @ One Pint Pub. Pours clear golden with a low head. Aroma is malts, fruits and some habanero. Flavor is malts, fruits, loads of habanero and some hops. This must have a higher scoville rating than Tabasco! Burns your lips. Great!

Tap. Citrus and tropical fruit on the nose. Take a sip and the habaneros kick in. Lots of heat! Interesting, albeit fewer habaneros would do good as they are a bit overpowering.

Nische (1282) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle at Queens Head. Stinging chili aroma with some floral hops underneath. The taste is heavily habanero with some grapefruit, pineapple and pine. Really spicy, but quite balanced actually.

Wow, this is hot! Aroma is a nice citrus with a hint of spice. The heat and hops hit you right in the face. Burning hot finish, over the top.

(Keg at One Pint Pub, 20151002) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, sweetness, pine, bell peppers and malts. Palate was medium bodied and burning with medium carbonation. Flavours were bell peppers, sweetness, fruitiness, malts, pine and bitterness. Aftertaste had chilli, sweetness and bitterness. A very burning brew but not really a bad one. Drinkability was not good.

Light amber, clear, lasting head. Assertive, inebriating floral nose. Medium body, agressive chili flavor out of balance with the body, lean mouthfeel, intense heat but not from alcohol, avg length. Moderately bitter, off-dry. Chili hits your mouth hard at first, followed by complex hops and rich malt. Great beer with beautiful, complex hop and malt character, unfortunately unsupported by insufficent body and overpowered by too much chili ( even for a chili head like myself). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma smells sweet, downplays the heat for sure. First sip I held it in to get a good taste and you could feel the burn building, quickly none the less. It is a good burn. A good, spicy taste. But after swallowing the burn burns. For me. A little too hot when passing down the throat. For sure need to be a fan of heat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Clear gold, low head. Nose of habanero, plus some citrus and light malt and a bit of tropical, but the peppers dominate. Flavor is repugnant spicy, firey chili peppers that have no business in an IPA. This is crap, and a terrible idea.
