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.

This is actually very hot. The aroma has a hint of heat but could be mistaken for regular sculpin. The regular IPA comes through, followed by the heat. Some chili fruitiness comes through if you look for it and can keep your palate focused. A very intense beer. Probably the best possible execution of the habanero concept, but Im glad I bought it as a single. Not sure what to pair this with; maybe cheese or a chocolate mousse?

laiti (8171) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2015
Draught @ the brewpub, Miramar. Aroma has sweet fruity tones, pineapple juice and hints of habanero. Flavour has sweet fruitiness and fruit candy that soon turns into burning habanero. Also some vegetable tones. Very long lingering burning tones here.

tiong (6714) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2015
Draught @ Ballast Point Miramar, San Diego, CA

Pours clear orange with a small head. Aroma of juicy fruits, zesty grapefruit, lemon, hints of spices and grass. Taste is smooth, hoppy and grassy with some spicy notes. Finish is warming with loads of chili notes, spices, hops and grass. Quite heavy. A total palate wrecker.

lusikka (7757) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2015
Draught @ Ballast Point (Miramar), San Diego, CA. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of fresh habanero, green vegetables, floral hops and yellow sweetness. Intriguing. Flavour rocks your world with strong habanero heat, green vegetables, floral bitterness, citrus and some maltiness. Medium bodied. Chili warms nicely in the finish.

kevd193213 (989) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle. Golden light amber pour with a thin off white head. Overpowering aroma of habanero peppers with some faint citrus undertones. It it what it is, but no way Id grab another one. Way too spicy to enjoy.

rougeau13 (2688) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Clear orange-amber with a whitish head. Aroma of citrus, habanero, tropical fruit, peach, and bread. Taste is full of citrus with a nice, but relatively mild, dose of smokey habanero; that is, the flavor is there, but the heat is pretty light considering what it is. Medium bodied, average carbonation, medium hot. More please.

Sharp and hot beer... A little lacking in taste, maybe over powered. A very nice beer...

BeerdedDave (1453) - Beckley, USA - AUG 13, 2015
amber color; citrusy hop aroma; they took one of the best IPAs out there and added habanero - and I am glad that they did; great, citrusy hop flavor up front with an underlying chile heat; finishes with some nice habanero heat

This beer looks like it should be great. Instead it blows. If you like to sip on wet fire this is for you. Myself I like beer to be refreshing not a workout.
