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 at OBriens. Clear bright golden pour, white head with nice lacing. Tropical fruity hops initially, and then dominate fresh habanero peppers, very hot and spicy. Glad to have tried it, but I probably won’t drink this again.

This poured a shiny bright orange color with an off white head. Aroma was just a great blend of spicey habanero peppers, accompanied by troipical and citrusy fruit. Flavor was blended really well, some of the hop character was covered by the pepper, but still made this a nice unique beer on its own. Prefect amount of heat to know its there but nto completely burn the throat. Really Nice.

Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured clear amber with a thick, lacy white head. Aroma was mostly dank and earthy hops. Heat and chili pepper presence with a clean finish and lingering spiciness. Balanced and not too heavy with the heat and actually pepper flavor which was pleasant.

12oz bottle of liquid heat. Poured a clear deep gold body with a smaller to average white creamy head. Aroma of habanero pepper, curry, Indian food, wet grains, bad bread, old citrus. Medium body, loads of heat, average carbonation. Flavor is more peppery than the aroma. I like, hot hot hot.

On tap at The Thirsty Monk, Asheville. My trepidation about this beer proved sadly sound, as the gorgeous orange juice and hops concoction of the base was to my taste buds utterly marred by a heavy hand with the pepper. Looks handsome enough like regular Sculpin, smells bracing as usual, with an understated pepper note. But the palate is wrecked with heat tingle and the taste is both spicy and acrid. Slap a Stone name on this beer for greater accuracy. BROWN.

On tap at World of Beer in Arlington. Clear golden with a large off-white head. Aroma is of grass, peppers, huge citrus, floral. Taste starts with grapefruit, bitter florals, grass, and pepper, the finish is an excellent burning sensation. Very well done. I was worried that the pepper would overpower an IPA that I love. The peppers have a strong presence, but the wonderful IPA notes still shin through. Probably my favorite pepper beer.

burg326 (3699) - Florida, USA - APR 22, 2013
Poured an orangish color at Hunhapu day, with huge aromas of hot peppers, and light hops. Flavors are the same, all hot pepper meat, light pepper flesh, and a touch of hops. Pepper flavor lingers on the palate.

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear orange with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong habanero, lemon, and mango. Thin mouthfeel with strong heat, spice, light citrus.

Cask @ Blind Tiger. Orange pour with no real head. While it is nice to try a different sculpin, this is essentially great ipa plus hot, for those who like peppers this is a must, although bit too hot for me. A couple ounces were enough for me.

Draft at friendly Greek. Pours golden with an inch of white foam. Has some citrus on the nose. Big fucking habanero on the tongue. Huge. Real, real spicy. Lingers for hours. It is an acquired taste but it’s actually some flavor even as it melts your tongue.
