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.

BMan1113VR (7916) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 10, 2011
On tap. Pours with a hazed golden body and a white head. A good bit of diacetyl in the aroma, butterscotch. Light hops, some pepper, grainy. Flavors of diacetyl, some heat and burn and really minimal tropical fruit hoppiness. People who have had this before told me it tasted better previously.

drowland (7881) - Georgia, USA - AUG 6, 2015
2/21/15 and a few times since. First sampled at RBWG 2015 but have had a few times since, bottle and draft. Orange pour with a small khaki head, good lacing. Great aroma, spicy, habanero, citrus, hoppy. Awesome. Great flavor, citrus hops, habanero, plenty of spice, love it. Spicy for some, but I really dig it!

gunnar (7754) - Sandnes, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2015
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat.Pours hazy dark golden with a big creamy white head. Spicy malty aroma at first, develops into distinct hot pepper. Taste is good soft malty to start with, but quiclky turns into a hot habanero burn, long lasting and totally dominates all malty elements. Nice beer in a way, will def purchase some more bottles.

lusikka (7681) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2015
Draught @ Ballast Point (Miramar), San Diego, CA. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of fresh habanero, green vegetables, floral hops and yellow sweetness. Intriguing. Flavour rocks your world with strong habanero heat, green vegetables, floral bitterness, citrus and some maltiness. Medium bodied. Chili warms nicely in the finish.

77ships (7641) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2016
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.

gyllenbock (7557) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2014
Sample at SBWF 2014. Hazy light amber with a white head. A lot of hot chili both in the aroma and taste. Also some light notes of citrus and malt. Too much Habanero for my taste.

after4ever (7538) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2015
Tap at SB. Pours a hazy medium gold with orange highlights. Creamy off-white head that sticks around for a while. Bright oranges and grapefruit on the nose, clear spicy pepper note coming through with the orange-y note from the habs. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Light caramel, oranges, grapefruit, and heat on the mid palate. Long hot dry finish. More fun to mix with other beers than to drink by itself, but it certainly has a devoted following all its own.

czar (7525) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
bottle shared by tom10101, thanks (!). hazy golden with a small off-white cap showing some retention and lacing. citrusy, apricots, spicy and hot habaneros - overdone is a euphemism here, underlying lean lightly toasted and fruity maltiness, pepper. average carbonation, light body, awfully hot and grassy-spicy finish. undrinkable.
