3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured clear amber with a thick, lacy white head. Aroma was mostly dank and earthy hops. Heat and chili pepper presence with a clean finish and lingering spiciness. Balanced and not too heavy with the heat and actually pepper flavor which was pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a very clear amber color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose is a little hoppy and with a bit of citrus coming through, but is dominated by the peppers. Taste is somewhat spicy with a lot of the pepper coming through, but not too much of the bitterness. I happen to love habaneros, so Iím a fan of this, though I see why many arenít.

Tap. Golden with small head. Doesnít seem that hot with the first sip, but the heat builds. Pepper beers arenít my thing, but I can appreciate that this is well done.

hugely hoppy, habenaro everywhere. Full bodied.very long lingering spiciness. Like food and beer together. Excellent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Tried a sampler glass full of this. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is a combination of habanero pepper and west coast hops, laid upon a malt backbone. Taste is spicy. The habanero does overpower the hops, but by just enough to make the beer interesting. This isnít something to repeat or even drink an entire glass of, but it is an interesting example of what can be done with the combination of beer and spice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear Amber with a nice eggshell head. Hoppy aroma has a definite peppery note. Flavor is peppery and hot, but not as bad as I feared. Definitely not for the faint of palate, but wonít make your mouth feel like a set from "The Towering Inferno" either. Form, fizzy mouthfeel leaves a hot pepper finish. Hot hot hot!

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at The Thirsty Monk, Asheville. My trepidation about this beer proved sadly sound, as the gorgeous orange juice and hops concoction of the base was to my taste buds utterly marred by a heavy hand with the pepper. Looks handsome enough like regular Sculpin, smells bracing as usual, with an understated pepper note. But the palate is wrecked with heat tingle and the taste is both spicy and acrid. Slap a Stone name on this beer for greater accuracy. BROWN.

bottle. clear orange with a small white head. nice floral aroma and no sign of pepper. flavor has big kick of peppery heat, green pepper meat, floral hops, a little malty sweetness. medium body. heat gets less intense 1/4way through the pint. wouldnít really want to drink more than 1 of these, but it was fun to try it.

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.
