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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ the brewpub, Miramar. Aroma has sweet fruity tones, pineapple juice and hints of habanero. Flavour has sweet fruitiness and fruit candy that soon turns into burning habanero. Also some vegetable tones. Very long lingering burning tones here.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
