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.

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

Golden hazy pour thin creamy off white head orange tint and light sticky lacing .. aroma is pretty much like regular sculpin, citrusy and tropical fruity hops .... taste well thats a different story ... for a few seconds you get a light tropical citrusy fruity hop flavors along with some caramel malts and then it is all heat .... spicy and hot peppers that pretty much hit the back of my mouth and tongue and numbed my lips ... bitter peppery finish ... in one word heat ... but interesting brew no trace of abv ... good for one beer, not gonna taste much after drinking it though

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

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, it’s decent but it’s just too spicy.

I was expecting this to be a pepper bomb. But this was well balanced. Lively citrus hop notes at first then the spice kicks in. Don’t know if I could do a whole pint but was much impressed.

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.

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
