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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured medium golden with lots of find sediment and a creamy, sticky white head. The aroma picked up sweet grapefruit meat and light biscuity notes topped by grapefruit zest, black pepper, and light green peppers. The flavor found similar grapefruit and biscuity notes at the core, with a big, quickly-building peppery head emanating outward.. the Sculpin-y hops get overwhelmed.. long, peppery finish. Medium-bodied and too hot for my liking on the palate.. carbonation was good.. I don’t need another.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
