3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at O’Brien’s’ pouring up via the Beer Engine with hazy gold to orange body and white head. The aroma has some sweetness and firm levels of Sculpin hoppiness with various citrus notes. I also get a mild background of chili pepper meat. The taste is Beer Engine smoothness and near creamy creating a Sculpin that is on the sweet side. It seems to start off a bit neutral in flavor with growing yet modest levels of sweetness and citrus before bold chili pepper burn and chili pepper flavor take over. The chili lingers and burns the lips for a good five minutes afterward. Darn spicy offering.

Draught @ Stone 17th Anniversary
Pours clear deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, pine and hint of chili. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long extremely burning finish with hints of grassy and fruity bitterness. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2 words: fuck yes. Tropical, habanero, medium to high spiciness, good throat tingle, bitterness adds to the heat. Fuck yes.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Aces & Ales in Vegas, and had alongside Joseph James Habanero Hop Box IPA. They were more similar than I would have guessed, but in the end I felt the Sculpin to be the better pepper IPA. The hops shone through a little brighter, with more balance between the underlying IPA character and the pepper character. Similar heat quotient though. SPICY!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap, golden pour, white foam, pretty soft and plain until the heat kicks in, not as hot as ghost but has a bite, hot lasting finish

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Orange hued golden, thin to moderate foamy white head, decent lacing.   Noticeable heat on the nose.   Soft hop otherwise.   I am a bit concerned given the heat coming off of this one.   On the tongue its like being hit by a truck.   Very strong Habanero, too strong if you ask me.   Overshadows everything else in this beer.   Too hot, too spicy, and too much.   Seems like they ruined already fantastic Sculpin.   Damnit!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Aces and Ales 2. Pours a clear amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has pine hops with underlying pepper notes and a backbone of earthy grains. Flavor has pine and grain up front with a strong finish of hot peppers.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours dark golden with a nice beige head and a pepper aroma. There is the expected full-bodied Sculpin malt flavor that is heavily masked with hot pepper. I guess some people like hot peppers in their beer, but for me it just cancels out the beer’s original good flavor. To each his own.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours gold with a thin white head. Piney hoppy and fruity aroma with light peppery notes. The flavor has piney hops and spicy peppery heat. Heat lasts through the finish. Solid stuff, but I like just the base sculpin better.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour on tap, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of thick caramel, orange peel, grapefruit notes, hints of slight pepper but not much, slight grass and pine notes as well. Taste is similar, some nice orange, grapefruit, hints of lemon, nice tropical fruit into caramel, slight pepper, then comes the heat and blows the rest of the beer out. Unfortunate, but tasty until that point.
