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.

Sweet rich fleshy fruit aroma. Smooth sweet palate. Powerful burn, but not totally mental. I actually quite liked it, but it is a silly gimmick

Golden hazy pour thin creamy off white head orange tint and light sticky lacing .. aroma is pretty much like regular sculpin, citrusy and tropical fruity hops .... taste well thats a different story ... for a few seconds you get a light tropical citrusy fruity hop flavors along with some caramel malts and then it is all heat .... spicy and hot peppers that pretty much hit the back of my mouth and tongue and numbed my lips ... bitter peppery finish ... in one word heat ... but interesting brew no trace of abv ... good for one beer, not gonna taste much after drinking it though

Weird pepper vegetable aroma. Pretty spicy in the throat - habanero veggie taste overshadows the key aspect of sculpin hops. Can't drink more than a few sips ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at capitol beer. Aroma is hops and pepper. Taste starts malty and hops and quickly turns to hot pepper ash tray.

On draft. Clear golden color with white head. Aroma of grapefruit, grass and malt. Taste was ok, with the spice of the pepper a little over the top. I love spice, but it did not balance out well with the flavors.

Light spice and citrus aroma. Darker golden in color with a thin white head. Nice spicy start with a bit of copper. Surprisingly smooth finish for such a spicy start.

Draft at a sampling event. From notes. Slight citrus hops and grains start out. Then immediately to very hot pepper notes. Very good, but nothing I would drink again.

Bottle share at Hampton Inn pre-DLD party. Pour is hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma is of pine needles, resin, citrus, and crackers. The habanero comes through in the flavor - caramel, citrus, spice, peppers, bitterness. The heat lingers, but isn’t too strong while tasting.

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.
