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.

Aroma is hop obscured by pepper. Color was a bit pale for an ipa, but otherwise characteristic ipa orange with a large white head. Taste is immediately pepper, with a finishing hop sweetness. Palate is full of fun burn. Probably the best pepper beer I've had, butter than most pale pepper tries.

What a bizzare experiance. Its not the first tim chillis have been put in a beer but the pepery taste really adds to this IPA gives it a savory vibe which is extreamlly refreshing and then supprisingly spicy. What a great beer.

Has a real nice steady burn to it. Maybe a little lacking in the overall flavor but good.

Bottle. Pours a brilliant clear gold with an off-white head. Citrus hops with a habanero spiciness in the taste and aroma. Nicely hot mouthfeel throughout.

12oz pour. Very similar smell as that of the original, with a hint of noticable habanero. First sip is strongly Sculpin like...for the first half-second. The habanero kicks in very quickly and lingers for a while. This is not a beer for the faint of heart.

I will preface thus by saying this wasn’t my favorite beer, however it is exactly as described and we’ll executed. Nose is earthy, floral, and dominated by habaneros. Thin white head, golden in color with sediment. Taste is habanero, habanero followed by a slight hop profile. Palate begins with some hop bitterness and then the tip of your tongue tingles and the heat sticks in the back of your throat. This bottle was pretty hot, probably wouldn’t want more than one. Might be good paired with spicy Mexican or Thai food.

RaoniBiel (16) - BRAZIL - JUL 6, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2016 Garrafa 355ml. Bastante turva, um palha cor de mel espesso e opaco. No aroma sente-se o lúpulo e no sabor é bastante marcante o picante da pimenta habanero, que permanece. Muito diferente de qualquer cerveja que já tomei, é interessante mas cansativa. Não imagino beber-se muito dela.

12 oz pour from chilled bottle into Spiegelau IPA. Golden, hazy, off-white head. Sharp, spicy nose. Taste too. Very spicy. Fairly light body, dry. Harsh beer.

visionthing (4683) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2016
On tap at Bier Bier, Helsinki. Almost clear golden with a moderate, white head. Fairly modest hoppy aroma with citrus and tropical fruits. Feels ordinary and quute boring at first, but then the habanero kickd in. Nice chili kick, both sin flavour and the pleasant burn it gives. Medium sweet with fairly pleasant hoppy flavours and a nice chili burn. Nice one!

It made my lips and tongue tingle, there is no dought that they used some habanero’s a bit to much for me.
