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.

Cunningham (6778) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2015
I can not really find anything wrong with this beer. The only problem is that it is so loaded with habanero that it kills all other flavors. Could just have been a pale lager instead of a nice ipa. So what score shall I give this….well they surly intended to make it this way. So I have to give it a decent score. Nothing wrong with it. Just undrinkable.
[On tap at 3 Smĺ Rum in Gothenburg, Sweden]

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Orange hued golden, thin to moderate foamy white head, decent lacing.   Noticeable heat on the nose.   Soft hop otherwise.   I am a bit concerned given the heat coming off of this one.   On the tongue its like being hit by a truck.   Very strong Habanero, too strong if you ask me.   Overshadows everything else in this beer.   Too hot, too spicy, and too much.   Seems like they ruined already fantastic Sculpin.   Damnit!

Strykzone (6561) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Sampled at esbls pinball. This lights up the tongoe. It also has a sweet fruity side. Peaches? Citrus. Had this right after Rogue’s Sriracha stout and this is much hotter. More complex, too. But the heat leads.

Sigmund (6551) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2015
355 ml bottle, from the Norwegian importer. ABV is 7.0%. Deep golden colour, slightly hazy. Moderate white head. Aroma of fruity American hops, hints of dust. Can hardly detect the habaneros. Hoppy flavour, some fruit and pine, immediately followed by a vehement habanero burn in the finish and aftertaste. Way too hot. Unbalanced, to a degree bordering on the ridiculous.

BBB63 (6545) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle: Heat and juicy fruit with a touch of resin...Right to the edge of drinkability. But yeah I am drinking it nicely.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6544) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark golden color with a medium sized creamy orange-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweet pine, cactus and hot pepper. The flavor was pine, cactus, intense hot pepper and lots of sweetness to balance the heat. The hot pepper has an oiliness that sticks to the tongue. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

On tap, golden pour, white foam, pretty soft and plain until the heat kicks in, not as hot as ghost but has a bite, hot lasting finish
