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.

Pours a light tan with a creamy head. Aroma of peppers and hops. The habenero adds an interesting organic flavor. The burn starts a few seconds in and takes a few minutes to go away. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle poured a clear tarnished gold with a small lasting off white head. Aromas of straw, habanero, grapefruit and light pine. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry warming finish. Flavors of bread, grapefruit, habanero and light earthiness with a smooth dry warming finish.

Trevlig bärnstensfärg med snygg benvit krona, kryddig doft av habanero & vanlig humlig IPA doft a la Sculpin, förbannat jävla habanero bränna som tar död på varenda smaklök ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MSBrindbergs (563) - Solna, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2015
Fat på Mikkeller Bar, Stockholm. Klar bärnsten med vitt skum. Doftar klassisk sculpin men med en kryddigare doft. Mycket fin i sin grapesötma precis som originalet, men plötsligt börjar det brinna till i halsen. Mycket konstig känsla, men ändå angenäm. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JonMoore (2012) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2015
Bottle from Brewdog online. Misty golden amber with slim white head. Citrus hops, pine, sweet malts in the aroma. Whoa thatís interesting, tastes like a nice high quality IPA then the habanero kicks in at the end. Certainly the best chilli beer Iíve had. I would prefer it without the added heat however.

From tap@mikkellersthlm Green chili, herbs, roasty, caramel, golden, hazy, minimal head, light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, sticky, chili in the finish. Nice chili taste but more body is needed. Not balanced

Typical appearance, good head. Smells of hops, with a touch of pepper. Tastes strong of habanero.. can feel the heat, which is moderate. Smooth otherwise. This is a great beer.

cheap (4525) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2015
My hopes for this draft were nil, not liking ipa and all but I must say, thios was probably the surprise of the day. Clear pale yellow with the smell of grapefruit and BO. Yes, first swig is spicy hot and I like it. The heat stays there and is reinforced with every swig. Not quite over the top hot but certainly one of the hotter beers Iíve had. The ipa flavors are overridden by the heat and the bitterness is barely perceivable. Best heat beer Iíve had since church brew mole. Good overall beer experience. A fun thang fer sure. Need to get this in a bottle sixer.

Whoa! This one has afterburners! Pours a clear, orange, tiny (if any) head. Smells like a sweet sculpin but with fresh peppers. Initially tastes like a Sculpin, then the habanero heat comes on! Heat is medium but stays with you for a few minutes for each sip. Sculpin & Grapefruit Sculpin are some of the best out there...and this is good for something different. Just donít want to drink the other 5 beers in this 6 pack over the other stuff in my beer fridge. Best shared with a group of spicy hotheads over some chips and cold guacamole.

This beer is no joke. There isnít any subtlety here, the habanero is pervasive and itís hot. Not a bad thing though. I think it helps accentuate the hops and makes them pop a little more. Aroma is what youíd expect from sculpin but with a peppery heat from the habanero. Taste is spicy and bitter. Lots of grapefruit and pine. Dry hot finish that sticks around. This is a really cool take on an excellent ipa. The pepper is big and hot and sticks around. Iím glad the pepper wasnít subtle, it takes makes this beer awesome and different.
