3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at PH, pours a very hazy copper orange with medium off white head, nice lacing. Aromas of hops, malt, light pepper, vanilla, orange, and pine. Taste is filled with citrus, pine, vanilla and caramel tasting malts, strong peppers. Really gives the throat and back of the mouth a tingle from the habanero. The heat continues to build in other parts of the body as you consume more. Medium to fuller bodied, well carbonated. It was nice but I couldnít take the heat by then end of the glass. Use half the amt of habanero next time and this thing would be awesome.

Draft at friendly Greek. Pours golden with an inch of white foam. Has some citrus on the nose. Big fucking habanero on the tongue. Huge. Real, real spicy. Lingers for hours. It is an acquired taste but itís actually some flavor even as it melts your tongue.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle (12 oz). Slightly hazy golden/orange with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is of caramel, citrusy notes and spices/habanero. Taste is very hot and the habanero takes all the place along light caramel and hints of citrus. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Very hot finish. Ever lasting burning aftertaste. Complete lack of balance. Way too hot. Probably one of the mot burning beers Iíve tried so far. Bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Rattle N Hum courtesy of infi. Thanks Jonathan!. Itís a really cloudy looking one this, almost murky brown in the glass with a small off-white head on top. It has a nice fresh grassy herbal tea-like nose with traces of chocolate paper and dark malts. A bit strange but nice. In the mouth itís light oily with a soft carbonation level. I get some soft prickling hints of the habanero, but its nowhere as warming as I was expecting. Some more chocolate paper also appears. Tea like finish. A good one, but I was really hoping for a bit more punch. 14.06.2013

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
12oz bottle. Looking at reviews, this is a polarizing beer. Iím a huge pepper/heat fan, so not surprisingly I fall on the positive side. The other side consists of wimps. If youíre a pansy who canít take the slightest bit of heat, just donít drink a habanero beer! The appearance is average, orangish-golden with a fast-fading one-finger head. The aroma has grapefruit and tropical fruit notes with a hint of habanero. The flavor has great heat! Iím glad they didnít hold anything back. It matches well with a slightly sweet malt base and bright fruity hoppiness. The palate is really nice. Medium-bodied and crisp with a burning sensation. This is freaking badass! I love it and would drink it all day. Wimps need not apply.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask draft at the Blind Tiger in New York City. Pour is a very hazy, unfiltered orange golden with a smallish off white head. The aroma is grapefruit and mildly dank hops, along with a dry, clean habanero spice. The two aromas do not necessarily blend, but they do coexist in an interesting way. The taste is straight hoppy Sculpin up front, then transitions very much into a spicy Habanero pepper beer. As with the nose, really interesting, and really clean, but the two flavors just really do not totally work together. Palate is a nice medium unfiltered body, with a soft cask mouth feel. The after taste is crazy dry, and somewhat hot pepper spice. This was fun, but I think I would have liked to try normal Sculpin on cask more.

Looks just like the regular sculpin...retention and lacing arent quite as good. Aroma is also the same but has just a touch of vegetal pepper. Flavor is sculpin all the way with peppery heat in the end that burns pleasantly for some time. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and peppery hot.

This beer takes the always impressive sculpin and adds huge peppery spice on the finish. Quite phenomenally done as it doesnít detract from the original and never becomes too much. Great stuff
