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.

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.

swoopjones (6908) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 21, 2013
draft at Coles. Orange amber pour. Lots of heat in aroma & flavor. Heat masks the bitterness almost completly. Not overbearing heat but quite substantial. drinkable

b3shine (6570) - Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a little lighter than I remember regular Sculpin though. A transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells of hops and spicy pepper. Tastes like it smells, only more pepper forward, with an average mouthfeel. Alright, but the habanero masks the delicious base.

Bottle: Heat and juicy fruit with a touch of resin...Right to the edge of drinkability. But yeah I am drinking it nicely.

Keg at the Brewdog AGM 2015. Pours clear golden amber, thin white head. Aromas of citrus, pine, pepper. Taste is light sweet at first, then spicy, chilli heat builds.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2014
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!

Draft at RnH with Linh. Pours an amber body with light haze and some lacing. Aroma is spiced hops and pine. Mouthfeel is normal sculpin until the Habanero smacks you in the face - the chili pepper flavor here dominates the flavor and is incredible in precision of taste. I wish I could rate this higher for creativity and execution, but when it boils down to it - it’s just too damn hot. It literally tastes like someone rufied my drinks with drops of habanero sauce. Holy shit!
