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.

On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Clear amber body with a short but creamy light tan head.
Aroma: Orange, grapefruit, and pineapple with hints of heat from the habanero.
Taste: Spicy right away with grapefruit throughout. The heat builds up pretty strongly by the finish and lingers.
Palate: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Too much heat for me, this really sticks around for a bit.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2011 On tap at BP Old Grove; Light amber/golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is citrusy and light pine. Flavor starts lightly fruity sweet followed by grapefruity hops and sharp habanero heat.The heat almost takes over the beer, but is an interesting twist if you like hot peppers. Medium bodied and smooth with some long lingering habernaro heat. I would like to see a little more balance between the habanero heat and the citrus bitterness, but still I liked it.

Why would you take such a good beer and make it so bad? Why? Spicy pepper overwhelms everything else and doesn’t even taste as good as just pairing a regular Sculpin with some good spicy food.

Bottle share at Hampton Inn pre-DLD party. Pour is hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma is of pine needles, resin, citrus, and crackers. The habanero comes through in the flavor - caramel, citrus, spice, peppers, bitterness. The heat lingers, but isn’t too strong while tasting.

cpetrone84 (1201) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2013
On tap at Hunah Day. nose is mostly straight sculpin, hop explosion with a faint spice to it. Taste is much more spicy, extremely peppery and hot in the finish with the juicy hops up front. Spice is so strong and lingers.

Hunahpu Day pour #9. Pours golden copper with a small white head. Smell is mango grapefruit, very similar to regular Sculpin. Havanero spice up front and on the finish. Hides some of the great flavor of the base beer. I just dont get the pepper beers. This is probably the best of them in the pepper beer style, but why ruin such a great beer? Meh.

Amazing, great hops and the spice that pairs with hops, all in one glass! It’s the thin, dry, citrus you know frmo sculpin with the peppers hitting the back side and providing a burning peppery finish. Get it if you can.

Pours golden amber with low white head Aromas are attacking me with habanero and citrusy fruits Taste is overwhelmingly full of havanero, citrusy fruits. Hot as hell! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Wow. Smells like an IPA but tastes like a beer with kick. More kick than I've had in a beer yet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
