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.

Bouteille, merci à Dave - Ibrew2or3 for the trade. Fin orangé, col fin beige. Arôme est plus centré sur les houblons, ici la chaleur ressentie en bouche est minime et qcq effluves parviennent cependant à être là. Agrumes font le jeu ici, et le malt accompagne le tout en restant cependant bien marqué. Palais met de suite tout le monde d’accord, c’est bien du habanero, et donc risque de ne pas faire que des heureux. La chaleur du piment est bien et perce de suite et dès la première gorgée. Le tout est réchauffant, ne brûle pas mais offre assez de chaleur pour être unique, retrouve un profil malté juste en retrait tirant sur un léger biscuité. La chaleur perdure, et laisse tout de même passer le houblon qui est léger mais centré sur un profil agrumes plaisant. Retrouve le côté pulpeux du piment, surtout au niveau de la peau.

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.

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.

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a clear golden color with a medium plus sized white head. The aroma and flavor have quite a bit of peppery heat, citrus and tropical fruit hops try to come through. I get that this is a polarizing kind of beer, but I happen to enjoy the peppery beers. The burn is lasting, but the fruity notes linger as well.

Drank in Denver for GABF 2012. I can see how this would get differing ratings. It is good, and it is exactly what they want it to be I think. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. Honestly, not a big pepper nose. The flavor though is initial sweep Sculpin but then a blast of heat and habenero. Lingers hot on the tongue. Cool to try.

blipp (8284) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 3, 2011
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.

28/I/16 - 12Fl. Oz. bottle @ ElManana’s place - BB: n/a, bottled: 3/XI/15 (2016-82) Thanks to Steve for sharing the bottle!

Clear orange beer, creamy off-white head, bit adhesive. Aroma: quite some habanero, citric, floral touch. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: yes, that’s a distinct habanero flavour! Pretty spicy, hot, citrus, bit floral, very nice habanero. Aftertaste: very spicy, throat warming, lots of habanero heat, fruity flavours.

355 ml. bottle sampled @ “Sir Goatie McGoat S&G Tasting”. Thank you Mathieu87 and/or PriorL! Regular, Grapefruit, Pineapple & Habanero sampled side-by-side. Darker looking than the others. Nose is nice chili burn, no vegetable notes, chili obscures most other things. Taste is nice big oily chili, nicely lingering, good burn, no vegetable notes, base is largely obscured, low malts & pine, burns nice, not that much here besides Habanero which is just fine by me & great if you love chili. Up next they will release a habanero & pineapple version I hope.
