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.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light orangish gold with a finger of head and aromas of... well... not much. A little bit of heat comes through as well as some bready malt, but the hops presence is hiding as far as I’m concerned. Flavor here is lots of heat and a little bit of Sculpin-Like goodness, but it seems like the habanero destroys the hops profile.

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.

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

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 habańero. 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.

italianjohn (2489) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2012
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

Excellent beer, tho I like the Grapefruit version more.This does have the very intriguing aroma with the fruity hop malt caramel thing. Flavor loses almost all of the fruit and gets fairly dry with mostly malty hop and a little capsicum taste. Body is great and the heat from the Habenero is just right. Good drinking brew.

Cask at GBBF 2011. An amber coloured pour with a medium white head. Hoppy aroma. Tastes like an IPA with curry powder and chillis thrown in, this really did not work, I had to pour it away after a couple of sips. Quite horrid!

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.
