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.

Bottled. Pours hazy amber with an avarage sized off-white head leaving a good lacing. Aroma of grapefruit,mpeach, caramel peppery notes and pine. Sweet flavor that ends up quite dry and nice bitter with some chili too. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice chili IPA. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Bottle shared at RBWG 2015! Pours a clear gold with thin bubbly white head. Aroma is peppers over juicy hops. Taste is big on the peppers, damn, woah. Interesting but not as bad as some pepper beers.

Ktwse (3839) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2013
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

theisti (3806) - Kansas, USA - APR 1, 2011
Cask draft at the Blind Tiger in New York City. Pour is a very hazy, unfiltered orange golden with a smallish off white head. The aroma is grapefruit and mildly dank hops, along with a dry, clean habanero spice. The two aromas do not necessarily blend, but they do coexist in an interesting way. The taste is straight hoppy Sculpin up front, then transitions very much into a spicy Habanero pepper beer. As with the nose, really interesting, and really clean, but the two flavors just really do not totally work together. Palate is a nice medium unfiltered body, with a soft cask mouth feel. The after taste is crazy dry, and somewhat hot pepper spice. This was fun, but I think I would have liked to try normal Sculpin on cask more.

daje (3795) - NORWAY - FEB 10, 2016
On tap at BrewDog Edinburgh, june 15th 2015. Hazy golden body, nice staying white head. Aroma of fresh tropical hops and hints of pepper. Taste is fruity with a strong yet crisp sting frm the habanero. Well balanced as it still leaves space for the beautiful hop character of the Sculpin. This one leaves a hot habanero sting lasting way into the next beer.

stevoj (3776) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 9, 2016
Habanero at the forefront, gently in aroma, moreso in taste, and plenty of burn at finish. Orange golden body with fluffy head. Peppers pretty much obliterate any sign of the Sculpin base, but add some character all their own.

Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2015
On tap at Happy Gnome. Pour is clear golden with a big white head and good lacing. Tropical fruity, somewhat earthy, lemony, light biscuit, some grass and dough in the aroma. Taste is somewhat sweet, a lot of earthiness, hints of grass and lemon with heat on the backend. Medium body with high carbonation. Solid pepper beer - not sure how much of this I could realistically drink though.

LilBeerDoctor (3705) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Aroma of hop oils, hop resins, grassy hops, pine. Flavor is quite spicy in the first swallow - whoa that’s a lot of habanero! - followed by citrus, hop oils, and caramel malt. This does pack a punch for sure. One of the stronger chile beers I’ve had. Interesting though! 7/4/7/4/15 [3.7/5]

Taster from the Grille Next Door. Deep golden color with a huge sticky white head. Big capsaicin mixed with earthy pine on the nose. The heat lingers coating the throat all the way down. Good in a small dose, glad I got a tiny glass.
