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.

Tap @ bishops arms, gamla stan, Stockholm. Amber color, lasting white head. Peppers in aroma, grapefruity notes. Flavor has chili alright, burning. Tropical fruity but stays in the back as the chili overrides totally. Lasting burning sensation. Pleasant but in small doses.

hugely hoppy, habenaro everywhere. Full bodied.very long lingering spiciness. Like food and beer together. Excellent.

theisti (3256) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - APR 1, 2011
Cask draft at the Blind Tiger in New York City. Pour is a very hazy, unfiltered orange golden with a smallish off white head. The aroma is grapefruit and mildly dank hops, along with a dry, clean habanero spice. The two aromas do not necessarily blend, but they do coexist in an interesting way. The taste is straight hoppy Sculpin up front, then transitions very much into a spicy Habanero pepper beer. As with the nose, really interesting, and really clean, but the two flavors just really do not totally work together. Palate is a nice medium unfiltered body, with a soft cask mouth feel. The after taste is crazy dry, and somewhat hot pepper spice. This was fun, but I think I would have liked to try normal Sculpin on cask more.

This beer takes the always impressive sculpin and adds huge peppery spice on the finish. Quite phenomenally done as it doesn’t detract from the original and never becomes too much. Great stuff

reggiedunlop (3109) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Looks just like the regular sculpin...retention and lacing arent quite as good. Aroma is also the same but has just a touch of vegetal pepper. Flavor is sculpin all the way with peppery heat in the end that burns pleasantly for some time. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and peppery hot.

tom10101 (2919) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle (12 oz). Slightly hazy golden/orange with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is of caramel, citrusy notes and spices/habanero. Taste is very hot and the habanero takes all the place along light caramel and hints of citrus. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Very hot finish. Ever lasting burning aftertaste. Complete lack of balance. Way too hot. Probably one of the mot burning beers I’ve tried so far. Bad.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JUN 22, 2011
On tap @ O’Briens - Pours a hazy light golden color with a small white head. Flavor and aroma is mostly Habanero. You can taste the Sculpin, but the pepper really leaves a bite in the finish. I’m talking spice and heat. I drank the whole glass. Interesting.

alobar (2804) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Clear orange color with no head. Aroma of pepper, citrus, and hops. Lots of habenero upfront with citrus sweetness right behind it. Not sure what possessed one to add habenero to a very good IPA, but this works.

kaser (2791) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Draft at DryHop. Orange with white head. Very spicy beer. Way more than I thought. Tasty tho if you can fight that off

madvike (2759) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle - Amber with a thin ring of white head. Nose is fruity with lots of onion, very dry malt with no pepper to speak of. Taste is bready malt a bit of grassiness and some sharpness. Next to no pepperiness, though there’s a little heat on the finish. Thinnish with medium carbonation.
