4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
The spiciest beer you may ever drink. Smells, tastes, and lingers like a real habanero pepper.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2013 Draft sample poured a golden color with a thin coat of off white head. Aroma has big citrus, pine resins, and a huge hit of habanero. Mouth feel is medium and the carbonation average. Flavor again has a huge hit of habanero spice, citrus, juicy tropical hops, and a finish with heat that just lingers. Whoa this has a bit of heat to it so much so it is hard to take in the hops.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear copper with a perfect 2 finger head. Aroma is citrus, sweet malt and some light vegetal pepper notes. Taste adds orange, lemon, peach and intense habanero flavor and heat. Heat is pretty much at my comfort threshold. It's substantial but isn't painful and doesn't completely mask the other flavors. Crime and Punishment this is not. Medium mouthfeel and carb. Shocked how much I enjoyed this.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
SWBF 2014. Pours peach with a lacy white head. Aromas of peach, honey, grapefruit, kiwi with some hints of a peppery tone. Quite similar to ordinary Sculpin. Tasting it also very much reminds of the usual Sculpin characteristics: fantastic tropical fruit tones - mango, peach, paricot, grapefruit - and that nice malty base to it. After swallowing it though - wow! What a kick! Quite fiery and burns not a little bit. Not too much though. Very well balanced and I quite like that habanero kick!

Bottle from Brewdog online. Misty golden amber with slim white head. Citrus hops, pine, sweet malts in the aroma. Whoa thatís interesting, tastes like a nice high quality IPA then the habanero kicks in at the end. Certainly the best chilli beer Iíve had. I would prefer it without the added heat however.

Amber pour with a medium head.
Aroma of caramel, citrus hop and green pepper. Flavour is nice caramel and piney, citrus hop on front transitioning to a decent amount of heat on the back of the tongue and throat an a vegetal green pepper finish that is not unpleasant.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a clear golden color. Pepper on the nose, some pine, and some citrus. On the palate, the pepper takes over, completely dominates the flavor. Really not well done on this one. Too much heat for it.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle from a six pack. Aroma is peppers, grapefruit, caramel, wet river rock--all a little more muted than I was expecting. Pours slightly hazy new penny copper with lots of sediment under a bone-white head that lasts a minute before fading into a ring. Taste is very hot, making the lips tingle (9/10 on a heat scale). There is a fair amount of hop bitterness--the heat couldnít completely squash the IPA character. Mouthfeel is perfectly creamy, tight carbonation, medium to full body. Nice pepper beer, but itís totally palate-wrecking. Not sure if Iíll be able to rate anything else tonight.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. This one has a lot of heat. Initially tried pairing it with some spicy sushi and between this and the wasabi, it was too much. Habenero flavor all over it. Has the hop and malt you would expect from sculpin, with a ton of heat. The heat becomes a little too overbearing, unlike some of the spicy stouts, there isnít any sweetness to balance it out, and maybe that made it seem hotter than it is. Other than the joke that was stone crime, this might be the spiciest beer Iíve had.

Pours golden amber with low white head
Aromas are attacking me with habanero and citrusy fruits
Taste is overwhelmingly full of havanero, citrusy fruits. Hot as hell!
