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.

Pours clear golden amber with low white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, mango, peach and loads of habanero. Taste is WTF? Habanero, and tons of it. This is hotter than a vindaloo. Body is light and fresh, I suppose... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Gingerman. Hazy reddish gold pour. Citrus hops and pepper aroma. Nice clean malt with citrus hops and big spicy pepper taste. Really nice tongue numbing IPA.

Bottle. Nose of light malt, big pepper, cabbage. Medium straw color. Slight sweet malt, rich and buttery and a bit vegetal for a split second, then the peppers kick in and take over completely. Medium body, quite scorching on the tongue. Yeah, yeah, yeah, Very different. This sort of thing works much better in a heavier beer, such as Indra Kunindra. Here, it just seems a waste of Sculpin.

Draft at Mexican Food Factory Marlton. Pours out an attractive slightly more amber color than normal Sculpin with a nice white head. Aroma is of tropical fruits, citrus bitterness, and some light earthy/spicy chili pepper. Pepper is definitely subtle and maybe somewhat turns down the normal hop profile. Taste is where the peppers make their mark. Notes of tropical fruit and citrus hoppy bitterness, and then a spicy/earthy/fruity chili pepper (yes, the wonderful Habenero) comes into play. Luckily the spice is not over done, and despite the popular belief this pepper doesn’t only pack a lot of heat, there is a lot of flavor in there too. The hops meld rather well with the pepper that initially only leaves a slight burn, but definitely stings your lips for minutes after your sip...and if eating spicy food can linger even longer. A great rendition to one of my favorite IPA’s.

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

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!

Minderbinder (2693) - 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.

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.
