3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location/Date:Bottle in December 2014.
Appearance: Pours an orange cloud.
Aroma: Aroma of habanero spice.
Taste: Habanero really at the front, a "heavy" spice. Medium light bitterness.
Palate:Medium light body, lingering aftertaste.
Summary: I love spicy food - maybe I just don’t love spicy beer. I can enjoy a bit of this but then don’t want an entire bottle.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Sculpin habanero IPA: spicy hop aroma, clear gold with a small white head. Heat up front and lingering on the back of your throat. Definitely the dominant characteristic. Hard to notice other flavors but hops are detected for sure. Solid offering

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

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A - Served a golden-orange color with a thin layer of white head atop. The head faded fairly quickly leaving behind a touch of lace.
S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel malts and grassy/piney hops. The pepper is noticeable in the background but not too strong.
T - Starts off with a mix of caramel sweetness and piney hops and bitterness. There is some growing heat in the background from the pepper, but not too strong. Through the middle, the heat grows a bit along with stronger bitterness. As the beer finishes, the heat explodes and takes over and lingers for quite a while.
M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. It feels pretty smooth and super hot, and keeps your tongue on fire for a while.
D - Very much a sipping beer. It is so hot that if you drink it any faster it would be painful. Not really what I would call balanced, but a very interesting beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is hops and malt and citrus with no hint of habanero. Up front sculpin is its aweslme self.and.then the burn comes. A perfect well integrated not too over.the.top burn. I don’t understand the bad ratings this beer is awesome.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft keg and cask at the brewpub. Pours just like a sculpin... Light orange color, good head. Nose is punch in the face of spicey habanero peppers... Taste just like habanero peppers and sculpin. Two things that I love! Bitter mango piney grapefruit infused with a burning habanero. Tingles the lips just a little, burns the back of your throat and nose. Chapps your ass! Its spicey! Light and refreshing easy to drink. Overall: I went back to Ballast point just to get this for a second time. Very unique

Aromas are attacking me with habanero and citrusy fruits
Taste is overwhelmingly full of havanero, citrusy fruits. Hot as hell!
