2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a little lighter than I remember regular Sculpin though. A transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells of hops and spicy pepper. Tastes like it smells, only more pepper forward, with an average mouthfeel. Alright, but the habanero masks the delicious base.

Cask at GBBF 2011 - Tuesday. Clear golden/amber - white head. High chili taste - you can almost smell it. Nice flowery and citrus aroma, light malty sweetness..... everything is killed by the habanero !!!

Draft. Wow. Smells like an IPA but tastes like a beer with kick. More kick than I've had in a beer yet.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at The Thirsty Monk, Asheville. My trepidation about this beer proved sadly sound, as the gorgeous orange juice and hops concoction of the base was to my taste buds utterly marred by a heavy hand with the pepper. Looks handsome enough like regular Sculpin, smells bracing as usual, with an understated pepper note. But the palate is wrecked with heat tingle and the taste is both spicy and acrid. Slap a Stone name on this beer for greater accuracy. BROWN.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask at GBBF 2011. An amber coloured pour with a medium white head. Hoppy aroma. Tastes like an IPA with curry powder and chillis thrown in, this really did not work, I had to pour it away after a couple of sips. Quite horrid!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask @ GBBF, 2011. Pours clear golden with a small off white head. Nose is hot and spicy. Crazy hot and burning flavor. Chili pepper and tabaso sauce. Not drinkable by any means.

2nd August 2011
GBBF Cask. Hazy gold beer, suddy white head. Light hoppy nose that doesn’t give too much away. Mild citrus hops start and then the chilli starts and then it builds. After that it ramps up. Then it gets hotter. You get the idea! Very very hot and frankly undrinkable!

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cask at GBBF 2011. It pours golden yellow, with a thin white head. The nose is habanero chili pepper, pine and sweet resin. The taste is like chomping down on a habanero. Lots of pepper warmth that make eyes water. This is a one dimensional beer dominated by one flavour. Interesting nonetheless. Enjoyable to watch unsuspecting people taste this.
