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.

Poured on tap, my wife hates spicey foods but really enjoys pepper beers, this one was a little too much for her though, pours a clear dark copper red with a light white head and lacing, the aroma has quite a bit of spice and pepper on the nose backed with a good amount of citrus too, the first drink is hot, it hits you right away but the citrus and tropical fruit seem to numb it after you finish it. The more I drank it the more mellow it seemed to get, I enjoyed this.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Phone rate. Cask at O’Brien’s. Cloudy orange with 1/2 finger off-white head, dissipating to a thick ring rather quickly. Tropical citrus rind nose typical of regular Sculpin, tinge of vegetal notes behind.flavor follows, having a little trouble deciphering between fruity hops and habañero. This does pack substantial heat from the start, and builds throughout the pint, as expected. Probably about at my limit--any more heat would make it unenjoyable. Bitterness peaked at a 6, dry. Medium body with cask carbonation. Could be too hot for some. Burps vegetal. Tasty for the pint I had!

Orange color. Sizable off white head. Lacing plasters the side of the glass. Aromas of malt hops and pepper skins. Taste is very much fresh hot peppers. Spicy.

Minderbinder (2620) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle 355ml. 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.

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

MadIndian (2614) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2014 On draft at Issacs Amber pour with a floral hoppy aroma. The peppery flavor blends nice with the Caramel malts and curry.

Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2014
7/31/2014. On tap. amber color with a white head. Aromas are spicy with only hints of peppers. Flavors are caramel and pine up front, but the habanero sets in on the finish and warms all the way down. Not as hot and spicy as other similar brews. This one I can drink, but one is enough.

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.
