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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6197) - 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.

Strykzone (6174) - 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.

Mora2000 (6134) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2013
On tap at the Common Table. Yellow with a white head. The aroma has a bit of pine but what really comes through is the habanero. The flavor is similar. While there may be a bit of the IPA character in there, I get a ton of hot, spicy pepper. As I drink more, the beer gets hotter and hotter. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Interesting, but the pepper was too overwhelming for me.

mjs (6022) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2015
(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.

Beerman6686 (6010) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2012
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.

bytemesis (6003) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Tap. Pours clear amber with a large light beige head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, light chili, pine. Flavor is habanero dominated, some hoppy notes, lightly sweet, light bitter, medium heat. Burning finish. Interesting, but regular sculpin is so much better.

thirdeye11 (5952) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2013
(Draught at Beachwood) clear medium gold, fine white bubbles. Nose of habanero, hop candy, candied citrus zest, and light pine. Taste of candied citrus, pine, lightly spicy, warming plate linger.

Cask @ Blind Tiger. Orange pour with no real head. While it is nice to try a different sculpin, this is essentially great ipa plus hot, for those who like peppers this is a must, although bit too hot for me. A couple ounces were enough for me.

TheBeerGod (5861) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Draft at DoG Street Pub. Lovely aroma of fresh fruits and sweet malt. Light caramel in the background as well. Taste is fruity for a few moments and slightly sweet then goes directly to peppery Habanero heat. It kind of dominates at this point. Not much else going on. Body is medium with a moderate bubbly carbonation and LOTS of lingering heat from the peppers. Ends with more peppery spices with touches of caramel, malt and fresh fruit notes. Habanero is a touch one-sided on the palate.

Amber color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, floral hops, citrus, pepper. Taste of muted citrus fruits, some pine, spicy finish.
