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.

Dark amber in color, clear with a thin head. Big pepper aroma. The IPA hops are masked for sure the pepper and the hops blend well together and the peppers make for a very nice heat and flavor. Great Mexican food beer.

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.

12 oz bottle. The aroma is just like the base sculpin with juicy grapefruit, mild pine and peach. Pale malts, nicely juicy.

The flavor starts like the base brew and for me it still was kind of mild pepper tones for the first 3 oz. the heat then really stacked up and got overbearing. Dry texture with lingering heat. I have NEVER been a fan of pepper in my beer but it maybe ok for someone who really enjoys hot stuff.

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.

On tap at Meridian Pint. Nose is tropical with some mango. Citrus as well. Normal Sculpin. Flavor is mild heat, but not overwhelming. Masks the bitterness.

On tap at Apex - pours light amber with an off-white head. The aroma has grapefruit, toast and is smooth and dry. It has a medium / full body that is still pretty crisp with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with toasty malt, grapefruit, some pepper meat and a bit of paper. The finish has lots of peppery heat and hops. Pretty nice for what it is.

From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Fruity nose. Intense habanero flavor with citrus peel. Firery finish. Wow this is a hot one.

Tap @ bishops arms, gamla stan, Stockholm. Amber color, lasting white head. Peppers in aroma, grapefruity notes. Flavor has chili alright, burning. Tropical fruity but stays in the back as the chili overrides totally. Lasting burning sensation. Pleasant but in small doses.

Man you guys are pussies. This heat is perfect. Unfortunately it takes away from the hops. This also benefits from a fantastic base beer

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.
