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.

Ljus orange med vitt skum. Doft: Humle, mera humle, barr, skogsjord, ananas. Smak: Humle, trä, barr, jord, mandarin, apelsin skal. Undrar om det som stod på kranen stämde litet grann....

Tap. Gold pour. Small white head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine. Taste of grapefruit, pine, and habanero. What stood out about this beer is that it burns the lips and has a spicy aftertaste. The burn is nowhere near that of a real habanero. I’d say it is at the level of tabasco sauce. This beer would go good with chicken tacos.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2013 Pours gold with white head and some lacing. Aroma of peppers and pine hops. Taste is unique. The immediate taste is like the normal sculpin, but then it heads up really quick. Tasty with a kick that left my lips a little numb.

I wanted to like this beer. I love habaneros and I love beer, and I made a chocolate habanero stout once that I liked, but this was just weird for me. The flavors didn't blend. It was like biting a pepper and drinking a beer separately and hoping for marriage of flavors. Didn't work for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draught at Saraveza smoke fest. Pours a clear copper with foamy white head. Nose of hops and habanero. Smooth mouthfeel. Taste is first of sweet malt followed by hop and then dominated by habanero warming and flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap pour. Appearance is similar to the basic, slightly reduced head. Raw pepper in the back ground on noise. Proper burn on taste. Builds nicely. A half pint is plenty, but surprisingly drinkable.

#2! At the grove. Pint. Looks like regular Sculpin. Smells like IPA and cayenne. The heat is interesting, if a bit much. Not better than regular Sculpin, but different and good. Definitely gonna try this with one of my home brewed IPAs, and stouts, and...

On tap takeover at Cole’s in Buffalo. Pours great golden amber with fresh head. Hoppy aroma of the regular Sculpin IPA mixes with the spice. Taste is hot and the heat is certainly there, dominating over the hoppiness.

Peacehammer (621) - California, USA - OCT 31, 2012
dark gold, with one finger foamy head. Strong pungent hop aroma, with some hints of grapefruit. Very well balanced taste for a big west coast IPA, plenty of hops but also nice body and some malty characters. The habanero character is fantastic. Just a bit of heat on the nose, and then a nice capsicum burn on the finish.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2013 On tap at pizza plant. Pours an orangey amber gold with a nice white head. Smell isn?t strong other than the hops and some sweetness. Tastes bitter hops with some syrupy sweetness. The finish heats up and gets spicy! It?s nice and unique.
