Slightly hazy light amber. Big hop smell with slight hot pepper scent. Big early hop front that slides into a nice burn. Finishes on a habanero taste but balances with the bitter hops well.

Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured clear amber with a thick, lacy white head. Aroma was mostly dank and earthy hops. Heat and chili pepper presence with a clean finish and lingering spiciness. Balanced and not too heavy with the heat and actually pepper flavor which was pleasant.

Draft. I feel like the pepper brings out the tropical fruit a bit, havenít had a regular Sculpin in a while but I donít remember it being quite this juicy. Heat is powerful but not overwhelming. Very drinkable and delicious.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2014 Spectacular aroma followed by an unmistakable example of the style makes this beer a winner - if you are a fan of the style. However, I mourn the unadulterated ale that provided itís base.

An awesome ipa with a hot punch finish. Nice blend, you get the citruscy ipa first slightly bitter with a lunch if heat to finish. Love this. Ha at world of beer

First beer in my kegerator! I'm not getting any heat, but I'm getting some great flavor. Nice golden beer, with a smooth and strong flavor. The 1/6th barrel is going very fast.

I canít believe Iím the first to rate this beer! Let me start by saying if sculpin wasnít so good plain I wouldve probably rated this higher but I feel like it ruined a wonderful beer yet still decent. It smells of pine and chili pepper. Taste is a "plain" hop drowned out by the spicy pepper. The faster you drink it the hotter it is. I drank a pint in a couple minutes and about half in two gulps. Spicy and delicious but knowing how good sculpin is regularly ruined this beer for me.

On tap at the Blind Tiger during their Captain Lawrence event. Pours a hazed gold. Heat, sweet pine and toast. Sweet and hoppy. Warm and spicy, with slow heat. Very smooth and light lingering heat on the finish. This was great.

Really enjoyed this. Aroma was lightly green, some roasted peppers, definitely heat, some habanero and the underlying sculpin we all know, some juicy citrus tropical hops. Flavor is much the same, really well done, some sweet heat, not overpowering at all.
