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.

Scopey (11537) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2011. It pours golden yellow, with a thin white head. The nose is habanero chili pepper, pine and sweet resin. The taste is like chomping down on a habanero. Lots of pepper warmth that make eyes water. This is a one dimensional beer dominated by one flavour. Interesting nonetheless. Enjoyable to watch unsuspecting people taste this.

Drake (11469) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Draft, July 5, 2014. Pours a clear amber color with a thin creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of spicy peppers, pale malt, citrus hops. The taste is citrus and tropical hops with habanero in the finish. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, high heat.

hopdog (10913) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2013
On at Capone’s. Poured a golden color with a white head. Yep, there’s habanero in this one. The hoppy IPA was in the background, but this one ended in too much of a spicy burn for me to finish.

Dogbrick (10881) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. Dark amber color with a medium white head that disappears quickly, and short strings of lace. Peppers and hops in the nose. Medium body with a moderately spicy pepper flavor with some hops and malt behind it. Lingering spicy aftertaste. Decent beer, although I drank this too early in the session and had to flush with a lot of water immediately after due to the spiciness. Decent overall.

Ferris (10767) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2015
Bottle - Grapefruit and habanero. Clear gold with a decent white head. Habanero heat and some grapefruit with a peppery finish. Not bad, but the heat overpowers the IPA. I would rather have the original.

crossovert (10759) - Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2013
2 words: fuck yes. Tropical, habanero, medium to high spiciness, good throat tingle, bitterness adds to the heat. Fuck yes.

DSG (10703) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2015
[2/20/15] Draught at Ballast Point Old Grove in San Diego. Clear golden. Pleasant fruity hops aroma with a vegetal chili note. Flavor has fruity hops and a huge vegetal hot chili attack on the palate. Medium-bodied. Undrinkable.

Sammy (10660) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2015
On tap at coalhouse pizza. Heat really kicks it and a full mouthfeel with the hops as passenger.

Meilby (10584) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2013
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.

adnielsen (10384) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2012
GABF. Pours a hazy orange appearance with an off white head. Citrusy, grapefruity, a bit piney, slightly peppery aroma. Juicy citrusy, rich grapefruity flavor that shows more of the pepper with a moderate burn on the finish. Honestly, this sounded like the greatest thing since sliced bread to me but the spiciness was a bit dull and didn’t add what I thought it could. I would love to try it again someday, however.
