Bottle thanks to Butler at his house. Pours yellowish gold with no head. Aroma is fruity with pineapple. Some pepper on the nose. Flavor is entirely habanero with slight bitterness. Fair amount of heat in the back of the throat. Really interesting. Finishes clean and dry.

Yeah so this is an ipa with a serious Habanero kick. Nice experiment but IMO Habanero as opposed to Chipotle or whatever is just too spicy for a beer

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted on 1/2/14 from a capped 12oz bottle. Big thanks to Chuck for the hookup. Pours clear, lightly muted orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to average lace, leaving some residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is fresh grapefruit and lightly fruity hops with just a light touch of bread malt, but all of that is quickly covered up by the amazingly spicy aroma of super spicy habañero. The flavor is tremendously spicy, really dominating, but there is a good IPA hiding underneath all of it, just not sure it is worth trying to find with this much super long lasting heat. The body is medium with average carbonation and the longest spicy finish of all time. I can understand how some people like this, but it is not for me.

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

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

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.

1.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours golden with low off-white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is of peppers, slight malt. Taste is of peppers, hot (extreme) peppers, very slight malt. Palate: Medium carbonation. Medium body [Note that I had a very hard time rating the palate as I could barely dare to take other sips]. Overall: This beer is straight-up gross. Extremely hot/peppery. This is not serious. Burning aftertaste. No complexity to speak of. Stear clear of this one.

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.
