Tap sample at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 4/3/14. Clear orange pour with a medium white head. Aroma of orange, pine, grapefruit and slight chile pepper. Malty and piney flavor with pepper and citrus before a warm pepper finish.

Brilliant clear golden with a large foamy white head. Lovely nose of some tropical juicy undertones, a but of earthy leafy hop resins, some earthy citric bitterness, and a dry floral hopping. Smooth and quaffable amazing IPA at the start, with some crisp blonde malt and pale ale malt mixing with some lightly tropical tones and quite a bit of earthy floral resins, then WHAM, there’s this tropical and peach-pepper tone of habanero pepper and a decent amount of capsaicin heat. Finishes with that earlier IPA tone of bright blonde malt and a touch of cracker and lovely floral hop resins. The middle is just a touch too spicy, but otherwise the best damn IPA you could use to pepper up.

This poured a shiny bright orange color with an off white head. Aroma was just a great blend of spicey habanero peppers, accompanied by troipical and citrusy fruit. Flavor was blended really well, some of the hop character was covered by the pepper, but still made this a nice unique beer on its own. Prefect amount of heat to know its there but nto completely burn the throat. Really Nice.

Bottle. Hate to be flippant about it, but this one is easy: it’s just Sculpin with habanero in it. The only useful information I can impart: head retention and lace don’t seem to be diminished, the nose is a strong indicator of what is to come, and the level of habanero can be well described as fiery -- great for chili heads but way too much for my mother. Deadens just about everything else, save for a smidgen of apricot and medium bitterness. Bonus: the malt actually comes out to play after acclimation and melds really well with the heat. Actual synergy!

Dark amber in color, clear with a thin head. Big pepper aroma. The IPA hops are masked for sure the pepper and the hops blend well together and the peppers make for a very nice heat and flavor. Great Mexican food beer.

12oz bottle. I expected the heat to be mild, subdued. Nope, this is pretty hardcore. Filtered orange-tan body. Frothy white head. Interesting mix between cool citurs hops and fruity hot pepper aroma. A pretty awesome beer experience. The heat really lingers and stains your palate. Bold offering.

On tap at Meridian Pint. Nose is tropical with some mango. Citrus as well. Normal Sculpin. Flavor is mild heat, but not overwhelming. Masks the bitterness.

Draft at OBriens. Clear bright golden pour, white head with nice lacing. Tropical fruity hops initially, and then dominate fresh habanero peppers, very hot and spicy. Glad to have tried it, but I probably won’t drink this again.

Ick. I really don’t like pepper beers I’m finiding. This has a long-lasting spicy bite, that basically takes the greatness of this beer and ruins it for me.
