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.

Tap at Savor. This was just overall wonderful stuff. The habanero spice and heat really integrate well with the west coast boisterous IPA style. Citric and spicy with a slightly spicy hot finish. Pour me another!

Draft - pours yellow/amber w/frothy white head. Nice grapefruit and tangerine notes in the nose. Grapefruits, tangerines and a nice balance of habanero peppers in the mouth. The pepper is quite nice and not too overpowering. It's there and you can't miss but it adds a wonderful affect to a great beer. I like it!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holy crap -- talk about truth in advertising! I love habanero, but this is that times a billion. Iím giving it the rating in question because it lives up to the label, but this is a hard beer to drink!

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.
