Loved this because it held all the flavor profile of the awesome Sculpin IPA and added a zing of heat to it without being overpowering.

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.

An awesome ipa with a hot punch finish. Nice blend, you get the citruscy ipa first slightly bitter with a lunch if heat to finish. Love this. Ha at world of beer

On tap at capitol beer. Aroma is hops and pepper. Taste starts malty and hops and quickly turns to hot pepper ash tray.

This beer has eluded me for YEARS. I’ve heard it on tap at no less than 5 beer/pizza bars in the last 7 years and NEVER have I gotten to try it until tonight. Ballast Point tap take over at Bru! Pours a clear golden with light white foam in a 3oz tater. Aroma is IPA with very minimal pepper odor. Taste, holy CRAP this is habanero fruit! The chilli fruit is there right away and then the regular floral, citrus and slight pine comes in to showcase the sculpin. The habanero heat doesn’t really come into play until the beer goes down you throat where it is a nice heat. Overall, radtastic pepper beer that I’d totally drink a pint of. Indeed jalapeno probably still beats it out but that was with fresh peppers. Still, love this!

Nice citrus aroma but mild. Cloudy orange with a foamy white head. Good balance on the IPA flavors and malt. Peppers leave a burning sensation on the back of the throat which is as pleasant as it is unusual. Nicely done.

On draft at Gourmet Haus. The aroma is overblown with the habanero.....and then you get to the taste. This literally tastes like someone messed with a beer by adding hot pepper sauce. I do not get any of the original Sculpin flavor or aroma here. Very tough to drink from a brewer i love.

Draft at lures, pots clear amber with low head. Aroma is sweet malts and pine hops. Taste is rich sweet malt and nice hop bitterness, the pepper lingers o the finish.

Tap flight at the brewery. Filtered golden pour with a thick, foamy, white head. Aroma is meaty habanero with earthy hops. Taste is green ancho chile flesh, hops, and faint heat. Apparently earlier batches were much spicier. Not what I was expecting but quite tasty. I don’t recognize the Sculpin as much as I recognize the fresh chile flavors. Good beer

Tap at Savor. This was just overall wonderful stuff. The habanero spice and heat really integrate well with the west coast boisterous IPA style. Citric and spicy with a slightly spicy hot finish. Pour me another!
