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.

Sculpin is such a fruit heavy IPA (for me tropical, grapefruit and peach) and habanero are such a fruity pepper (mango and other tropical stuff) these two pair well together. Also itís a habanero. It could be much hotter but there is sense of danger as liquid capiscum coats your throat and mouth. Not a quencher this one. Hats off for the crazy guys that bottled and distributed this to Whole Foods.

Clear orange copper with a nice white head. The aroma is strong habanero peppers...enough to make your eyes tear up with a big wiff. The flavor is also loaded with habenaroes, but also has a nice fruity hop flavor and some sweet malt that goes well with the peppers. The heat is quite significant as you would expect and goes perfectly with the rest of the beer. Nice bitterness lingers with a lot of peppery heat. Good sipper.

Cracking beer from Brewdog AGM. Aromas of Grapefruit and Pine. Well balanced bitter to sweet taste with a nice warming feeling to add to the mix. I think the chilli completes this beer

Taster at the brewery. Golden color with white head. Amazing tropical-and-grapefruit hoppy nose, like the regular Sculpin, not much of the chilis there yet. Taste gives a immediate Habanero sting, then fruity, then a clean bitterness. Really hot. A masterpiece in terms of how the things work out, the habanero hits you only in the taste. I love it, but beware: I like very hot and spicy things, although I usually donít adore chili beers.

1/2 pint on tap @ One Pint Pub. Pours clear golden with a low head. Aroma is malts, fruits and some habanero. Flavor is malts, fruits, loads of habanero and some hops. This must have a higher scoville rating than Tabasco! Burns your lips. Great!

Amazing, great hops and the spice that pairs with hops, all in one glass! Itís the thin, dry, citrus you know frmo sculpin with the peppers hitting the back side and providing a burning peppery finish. Get it if you can.

Loved this because it held all the flavor profile of the awesome Sculpin IPA and added a zing of heat to it without being overpowering.

On tap at beermongers - pours orange with a white head, earthy pepper with slight citrus aroma. Balanced heat, zippy hops, the pepper is well showcased.

When I heard there was a Habanero version of Sculpin, I figured it was just another lame gimmick. But after pouring this amber beauty and smelling the nice citrus hops, I thought it would be a weak chili beer like Cave Creek---wrong, way wrong. This is almost a perfect blend of chili with hops except for the finish. I love how the citrus hops fade away and the pepper comes rolling over it, but then it keeps on coming. The pepper lasts longer than any other beer flavor. Perhaps if there was more bitterness of hop at the end WITH the habanero I would have given it a much higher rating. As is, 4 out of 5
