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.

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.

Ick. I really don’t like pepper beers I’m finiding. This has a long-lasting spicy bite, that basically takes the greatness of this beer and ruins it for me.

JohnnyJ (4551) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 7, 2012
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.

TomDecapolis (4546) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAR 18, 2011
Tap at Ballast Point Oak Grove. Pours a lightly hazy golden with a smaller bubbly white head. Aroma of habaneros and citrusy hops. Although pepper really dominates. Flavor is all habanero too! Not my thing at all.

markwise (4545) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2012
On draft at GABF 2012. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Nose is big caramel with some pine, citrus, and earthy peppers with hints of burn in the nose. Flavor is nice malt, big citrus, and strong earthy peppers with some burn bordering on impolite. Medium in body and an interesting twist on Sculpin.

thornecb (4541) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Pours deep gold into a tulip. Bright white head with good retention recedes to coat surface. Resin and mild pepper aromas. Sweet resin and caramel upfront quickly turning to an oily pepper that lasts through the long lip-smacking hot pepper finish. Nice, but not a lot of sculpin.

dmac (4211) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 27, 2014
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.

boFNjackson (4176) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 13, 2014
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.

Tap. The look is clear, golden bright colored, with a thin head. The smell is peppers, veggie, light, muted, and ok. The taste is pepper, chiles, spiced, definitely some heat at the back of the mouth. Interesting.
