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.

Draft pour. Aroma of hops and spice. Has a good hoppy flavor that is overwhelmed with spice. I like it, but can see how it would turn someone away. Not the most drinkable beer out there, but good overall.

Draft sample. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of sharp citrus juices, light malt, and a dusting of pepper. An interesting flavor progression: grapefruit and lime, followed by incendiary (yet very clear) Habanero, then a mix of leafy hops and pepper heat on the finish. The heat is a little much, but you still get a sense of the beer behind it. A half pint serving would have been ideal, but managed to finish a whole pint with little difficulty. I tried to search out the base beer, but came up empty on this trip.

Draft at friendly Greek. Pours golden with an inch of white foam. Has some citrus on the nose. Big fucking habanero on the tongue. Huge. Real, real spicy. Lingers for hours. It is an acquired taste but it’s actually some flavor even as it melts your tongue.

Pours a golden amber color with a white head. Hop, habanero, citrus, floral and malt aroma. Big habanero pepper, some citrus, floral and malt flavors. Rather hot. Good but spice completely masks the taste of the beer. Spicy lingering finish.

bottle. clear orange with a small white head. nice floral aroma and no sign of pepper. flavor has big kick of peppery heat, green pepper meat, floral hops, a little malty sweetness. medium body. heat gets less intense 1/4way through the pint. wouldn’t really want to drink more than 1 of these, but it was fun to try it.

Bright golden pour with plenty of floating sediment. Citrus hop aroma. Taste- the peppery habanero flavor isn't subtle, it is forefront and dominates the flavor profile. The Sculpin IPA base provides a bright citrus malt backbone. Sculpin IPA is one of my favorite ales so any deviation to it won't live up to the original, but this is still very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Happy Gnome. Pour is clear golden with a big white head and good lacing. Tropical fruity, somewhat earthy, lemony, light biscuit, some grass and dough in the aroma. Taste is somewhat sweet, a lot of earthiness, hints of grass and lemon with heat on the backend. Medium body with high carbonation. Solid pepper beer - not sure how much of this I could realistically drink though.

It smells like a hoppy IPA with a hint of habanero, as expected. The initial flavor is the pepper, the burn is on the back of palate and through the finish. Almost of the verge of being too spicy for me, but just perfect on the burn. Not sure I'd drink a full pint.
