UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 @ RnH. Once in nov. 2011 and in jan 2013. Didn’t like it so much back then but I love it now. Almost like a delicate herbal tea

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of sharp citrus juices, light malt, and a dusting of pepper. An interesting flavor progression: grapefruit and lime, followed by incendiary (yet very clear) Habanero, then a mix of leafy hops and pepper heat on the finish. The heat is a little much, but you still get a sense of the beer behind it. A half pint serving would have been ideal, but managed to finish a whole pint with little difficulty. I tried to search out the base beer, but came up empty on this trip.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2013 Draft sample poured a golden color with a thin coat of off white head. Aroma has big citrus, pine resins, and a huge hit of habanero. Mouth feel is medium and the carbonation average. Flavor again has a huge hit of habanero spice, citrus, juicy tropical hops, and a finish with heat that just lingers. Whoa this has a bit of heat to it so much so it is hard to take in the hops.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask at GBBF 2011. An amber coloured pour with a medium white head. Hoppy aroma. Tastes like an IPA with curry powder and chillis thrown in, this really did not work, I had to pour it away after a couple of sips. Quite horrid!

Draft at Jerry’s. Dark gold with big, foamy, white head, good lacing / Bright nose of citrus, weed, cut pine, honey / Medium body, crisp, excellent balance with bitter finish, and very spicy / Flavors of honey, grapefruit, cut pine, resin, very hot but not much of a vegetal flavor / Very nice, with quite a spice kick.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Really enjoyed this. Aroma was lightly green, some roasted peppers, definitely heat, some habanero and the underlying sculpin we all know, some juicy citrus tropical hops. Flavor is much the same, really well done, some sweet heat, not overpowering at all.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear golden amber with low white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, mango, peach and loads of habanero. Taste is WTF? Habanero, and tons of it. This is hotter than a vindaloo. Body is light and fresh, I suppose...

Tap at Blind Tiger. Clear golden pour. Very hoppy with citrus and pine. Nice spicey pepper, burn on the tongue. Light caramel and sweet, some dryness. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Eureka University Village.
Gold pour, thin white head. Sculpin aroma, grapefruit and some tropicals, a hint of the pepper to come. The heat on the tongue melds very nicely with the underlying flavor base -- they complement one another well -- but hits harder than I like in a hot-pepper beer. In the style, I like the heat to be almost subtle -- whereas this one is strong and draws the attention to the lingual burning and away from the topical fruit in the base beer that seems just waiting to delight to taste buds. After trying this, I opt to switch to the regular sculpin, which is far more drinkable --- but leaves me missing the heat just a little bit, which speaks well of this one I suppose.

Clear yellow golden in color... Aroma of crisp citrus hops... Flavor is dominated by spicy habanero, spicy kick initially on the palate, gives way to lingering heat, but does not mask the crisp dryness and bitterness of the sculpin.... Nice combo
