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.

12oz bottle from Craftshack. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of sweet citrus, light on the habanero spice, lemon zest, and floral hops. Taste of grapefruit, lemon, pine, and a decent peppery habanero burn in the finish. Solid

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... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped SC443-14055. It pours a bronze, amber color with a modest little head that fades to a ring but never goes away. The nose has a nice caramel malt and bitter hop character. Medium body. At first there is a caramel malt character but it does snot take long for the floral hop character to take over. Nice bitter finish. Quite good.

On draught at Mellow Mushroom City North. Pours a clear copper with an off-off white head. Aroma is tropical and citrusy notes paired with sweet habanero. Taste is sweet with some bitterness, but the real flavors are from the sweet flesh of the peppers. Thinner bodied. Definitely spicy, but the flavors meld very well. Love it!

On cask @ OíBrianís: Poured a different color than I remember from the regular sculpin and appeared as a lighter golden blonde. Tiny formation of head which eventually fizzed out leaving the liquid naked. The aroma is not as easy for me to smell due to the food and atmosphere here at OíBrienís but it does smell very similar to the original recipe. As for the drink, the taste is full of pine and citrus fashioned hops while a heavy spice flavor coats the back of my throat. The habanero is so apparent that lips begin to burn and even a bit of irritation in my stomach as if I ate a spicy dish of Thai or Indian curry. This has to be the strongest chili peppered beer Iíve come across.

Bottle. Hazy light orange pour with a small head that fade to a nice ring. Aroma is pretty great. Nice mix of apricot, mandarin oranges and peppers. Tastes very spicy. Strong heat from the peppers nearly covers up everything else. Just hints of citrus and sweet malt. Medium body. Fairly smooth. Overall, itís decent but itís just too spicy.

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!

bottle from craftshack dot com. aroma is just like fresh and yummy sculpin. lots of pine and grapefruit. large white head and a very clear light orange color. initial taste is hops followed quickly by a punch in my esophagus of hot peppers. holy hell this is interesting. just a bit of a sting is an understatement. this bad mamma jamma has more punch than a bomb or most pepper beers I have had. still a very solid offering, but not more than one could be consumed by this wussy
