3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep gold into a tulip. Bright white head with good retention recedes to coat surface. Resin and mild pepper aromas. Sweet resin and caramel upfront quickly turning to an oily pepper that lasts through the long lip-smacking hot pepper finish. Nice, but not a lot of sculpin.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at GABF 2012. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Nose is big caramel with some pine, citrus, and earthy peppers with hints of burn in the nose. Flavor is nice malt, big citrus, and strong earthy peppers with some burn bordering on impolite. Medium in body and an interesting twist on Sculpin.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of standard Sculpin with citrusy and resinous hops, some pale malts with light notes of caramel, and some dough. Flavor the same but a very peppery, spicy finish. Average texture. Sort of a pointless beer since normal and grapefruit are so good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle of liquid heat. Poured a clear deep gold body with a smaller to average white creamy head. Aroma of habanero pepper, curry, Indian food, wet grains, bad bread, old citrus. Medium body, loads of heat, average carbonation. Flavor is more peppery than the aroma. I like, hot hot hot.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured an orangish color at Hunhapu day, with huge aromas of hot peppers, and light hops. Flavors are the same, all hot pepper meat, light pepper flesh, and a touch of hops. Pepper flavor lingers on the palate.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
