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.

Pours a golden color with a medium head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is lots of fruity hops & some hot pepper.

The flavor is pretty spicy with a mild bitterness. The beer is nicely hoppy but has that nice hot pepper. The hot pepper detracts from the hop complexity but also never really overtakes the hop character. The beer seems to get spicier with every sip.

Its honestly as good as I could ever imagine a hot pepper IPA being.

Sculpin IPA is one of my favorites, but this one was tough to drink. Ive noticed this before with spicy beer, where I bought a crowler and let it sit about 3 months so the heat built intensely over time. This may have been the case with this bottle. Buddy from GA had a few extra that he couldnt really drink, so brought down to try. You could tell with the first sip, that the heat was there as it lingered on my lips for quite a bit. Didnt affect the palate that much, but after a few sips you can tell the heat for sure. I would try to sample a fresher bottle next time though. He wound up using the last bottle in a chili recipe!

Tap @William K Frederik. Clear amber color. Medium size, white head, stays. Peppery, nettles, jalapenos, sweet and malty aroma. Jalapenos, malty, sweet, green spring onions, bit milky, stems in taste. I can really feel the heat of peppers in aftertaste. First sip takes time to get used to it, but later I get used to it. Sets my body in fire. But bit messy. Next day in the toilet was interesting. Worth to try brew.

Spicy nose with some lemon and lime. Looks like a higher abv ipa. A lot of carbonation with dark yellow and some red hints. Not much head. That is legitimately spicey. Really hot.

Very slight citrus nose; Piney front pallet followed immediately by a back throat hotness from the peppers. The pepper taste lingers and my eyes sweat a bit. This is hotter than Flat Earths Hold Your Fire. There is no reason to make a beer this hot.

Alldeles för mycket sting, chilin bränner på läpparna och får en att önska att man redan druckit klart ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour at Upstairs. Pour was clear amber orange with a half inch of innocent looking white foam. Aroma was typical IPA citrus scent, mostly of grapefruit. Taste was citrus and pine. Then the peppers set in... Very hot! I like spices, but this was a bit too much. Peppers overwhelm the hops. Not likely to try again.

[Bottle (355ml)] Pours a clear deep orange with a large lasting frothy white head. Aroma smells like Sculpin at first and then, after a bit, theres the habanero. The flavour though: Whoa! It is really spicy. Like REALLY spicy. Medium bodied. Super intense, its a good thing I like spicy stuff.

Nice citrus mouthfeel with a nice spicy finish. Very tempting with a fruity tang. Great with pizza or Indian food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
