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.

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!

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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pour into a pint glass. The beer is a clear copper color with a white head of foam. The aroma is fruity sweet and just a mild habanero pepper influence. The more I drink, the more heat I encounter, so it really builds up, but it starts more sweet. Lip tingling heat. Some stomach heat as well. Medium body and medium carbonation.

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.
