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.

One of the most interesting beers I have tasted! Can definitely taste and smell the habanero chili. Donít know if Iíd manage a full pint as the taste is quite strong. (K)

Draft. No spice in the nose just normal hoppy aroma. As you take the first sip and thatís when the habanero kicks in. Itís hot for a minute but mellows out pretty quick surprisingly. Best Habanero beer Iíve had but you still need to really enjoy spice like that to fully enjoy this beer

The great taste of Sculpin with a healthy dose of hot habanero. I personally enjoy these pepper beers and this one is one of the best Iíve ever had. If you see it on tap give it a try!

Aroma of habenero, citrus and pine. Pours amber with light white head. Sweet, bitter and spicy. The spice is much less dramatic than last yearís version, its actually drinkable without getting heartburn. Its much more enjoyable.

On draft. Aroma is slightly odd, as if itís an IPA with something different, but suggests nothing in particular. The taste starts big IPA, but before it can overpower you with hop goodness the peppers cut through a bit. Then they really linger on the palate, providing a nice mild heat for several seconds. Not gimmicky, just superb.

Draft - pours yellow/amber w/frothy white head. Nice grapefruit and tangerine notes in the nose. Grapefruits, tangerines and a nice balance of habanero peppers in the mouth. The pepper is quite nice and not too overpowering. It's there and you can't miss but it adds a wonderful affect to a great beer. I like it!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Weird pepper vegetable aroma. Pretty spicy in the throat - habanero veggie taste overshadows the key aspect of sculpin hops. Can't drink more than a few sips ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
