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.

11 aug 2002, tap at the brewery. Dark yellow, clear, no bubbles. Nose is faint green chili and malt. IPA nose is completely gone. Med/thin body and almost flat. Lots of habanero and not much else. Straw and habanero. Fire up front but it fades fast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at OBriens. Clear bright golden pour, white head with nice lacing. Tropical fruity hops initially, and then dominate fresh habanero peppers, very hot and spicy. Glad to have tried it, but I probably won’t drink this again.

arminjewell (6175) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Pour on tap, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of thick caramel, orange peel, grapefruit notes, hints of slight pepper but not much, slight grass and pine notes as well. Taste is similar, some nice orange, grapefruit, hints of lemon, nice tropical fruit into caramel, slight pepper, then comes the heat and blows the rest of the beer out. Unfortunate, but tasty until that point.

Hunahpu Day pour #9. Pours golden copper with a small white head. Smell is mango grapefruit, very similar to regular Sculpin. Havanero spice up front and on the finish. Hides some of the great flavor of the base beer. I just dont get the pepper beers. This is probably the best of them in the pepper beer style, but why ruin such a great beer? Meh.

Tap. This is a novelty beer for me. It seems like a waste of sculpin because it has you focusing on the habanero and you lose the hops flavors. The spiciness it leaves behind in your mouth just seems wrong for a beer. Glad I tried a 4 oz sample. No need to do it again.

Draft at DryHop. Orange with white head. Very spicy beer. Way more than I thought. Tasty tho if you can fight that off

Aroma is citrus and spice. Flavor is overwhelming with spiciness a little over the top and takes away from hops. Not my cup of tea.

pinkzambia (1478) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 26, 2014
Sculpin habanero IPA: spicy hop aroma, clear gold with a small white head. Heat up front and lingering on the back of your throat. Definitely the dominant characteristic. Hard to notice other flavors but hops are detected for sure. Solid offering

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear orange with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong habanero, lemon, and mango. Thin mouthfeel with strong heat, spice, light citrus.

On tap. Copper orange colour. Aroma of peppers. Taste of peppers, hot. Intersting at the beginning, but too much in the end.
