3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at DoG Street Pub. Lovely aroma of fresh fruits and sweet malt. Light caramel in the background as well. Taste is fruity for a few moments and slightly sweet then goes directly to peppery Habanero heat. It kind of dominates at this point. Not much else going on. Body is medium with a moderate bubbly carbonation and LOTS of lingering heat from the peppers. Ends with more peppery spices with touches of caramel, malt and fresh fruit notes. Habanero is a touch one-sided on the palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Clear dark golden with a fluffy white head. Strong pepper aroma and some hops on the nose. Taste is all hot pepper with a lot of capsicum on the finish. Not my thing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at esbls pinball. This lights up the tongoe. It also has a sweet fruity side. Peaches? Citrus. Had this right after Rogue’s Sriracha stout and this is much hotter. More complex, too. But the heat leads.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours a golden body with a white head. Light floral grapefruit tones get lost among a huge pepper, dried pepper, and spicy pepper notes. I don’t eat many peppers so i have to be a bit non-discript. Huge heat tones, loads of pepper quite hot actually, for me. Just had a bit of a this and it works, why because the base beer is awesome. Of course i’d rather have the base beer without the peppers, still a fun experiment.

Tap sample at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 4/3/14. Clear orange pour with a medium white head. Aroma of orange, pine, grapefruit and slight chile pepper. Malty and piney flavor with pepper and citrus before a warm pepper finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark golden color with a medium sized creamy orange-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweet pine, cactus and hot pepper. The flavor was pine, cactus, intense hot pepper and lots of sweetness to balance the heat. The hot pepper has an oiliness that sticks to the tongue. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brilliant clear golden with a large foamy white head. Lovely nose of some tropical juicy undertones, a but of earthy leafy hop resins, some earthy citric bitterness, and a dry floral hopping. Smooth and quaffable amazing IPA at the start, with some crisp blonde malt and pale ale malt mixing with some lightly tropical tones and quite a bit of earthy floral resins, then WHAM, there’s this tropical and peach-pepper tone of habanero pepper and a decent amount of capsaicin heat. Finishes with that earlier IPA tone of bright blonde malt and a touch of cracker and lovely floral hop resins. The middle is just a touch too spicy, but otherwise the best damn IPA you could use to pepper up.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Bottle. Hate to be flippant about it, but this one is easy: it’s just Sculpin with habanero in it. The only useful information I can impart: head retention and lace don’t seem to be diminished, the nose is a strong indicator of what is to come, and the level of habanero can be well described as fiery -- great for chili heads but way too much for my mother. Deadens just about everything else, save for a smidgen of apricot and medium bitterness. Bonus: the malt actually comes out to play after acclimation and melds really well with the heat. Actual synergy!
