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.

Cask (gravity) @ GBBF 2011, Great British Beer Festival, Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London, England.

Clear medium yellow orange colour with a average, frothy - fizzy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, pale malt, chili, sweet chili fruit. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and heavy bitter with a long long duration, heavy heavy chili burn. To much for me ! Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. IMO just mostly undrinkable. [20110802]

GBBF Cask. Hazy gold beer, suddy white head. Light hoppy nose that doesn’t give too much away. Mild citrus hops start and then the chilli starts and then it builds. After that it ramps up. Then it gets hotter. You get the idea! Very very hot and frankly undrinkable!

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
