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.

12 oz. no bottling date. Light haze on the orange-gold brew. A thin creamy film above that endures well. Aroma is tropical fruit mix with prominent grapefruit, resiny herb and an earthy-metallic roasted vegetable note. Flavors of caramel, green herb and peach are quickly overtaken by the earthy roasted pepper and a capsaicin burn. The near-medium body has a dry heat and a pleasant medium carbonation.

Tap at the Hair of the Dog, Phrom Phong Ballast Point tap takeover. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is yeast, citrus fruit, light spice. The flavour is moderate bitter light sweet with a rich tropical fruit, light creamy, chilli spice palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Nice and spicy but quite drinkable all the same.

Large sample (2-3oz) at the Temecula Ballast Point outlet. I assume this is the regular ’Sculpin’ with Habanero Chili Peppers added somewhere in the brew. Well it makes the beer very hot and my sample was more than enough thank you. Scored objectively, as I actually thought it interesting, would love to play a prank with it, serving it to a mate without letting him know what it was.

humpah (339) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2017
From notes. 0,355l bottle at Harry’s, Jyväskylä. Pours clear copper colour. Aroma of slight chili, malt, hops. Taste is very chilish, some balancing body and hoppiness. Spicy but well-made for one.

Punkero (471) - FINLAND - FEB 4, 2017
Boom. Nice! If you’re one of those idiots who puts way too much chili on everything you’ll like this. But it’s a decent beer yeah. Freshness and flowery. Funny.

Wow. Way too much pepper. Holy crap. A hint would have made this a good beer. But this was like drinking habanero juice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cavie (4805) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Bottle. Clear amber color. Dominant hop aroma. New World hops, citrusy, resiny. Bright. Pepper aroma but subdued to the hops. Hop flavor upfront with a definite pepper kick. Big pepper heat on the finish. Good flavor though.

explosivedog (1614) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 16, 2017
355ml bottle. Pours orange and hazy with a little head. Aroma is a little heat, some lemon, grapefruit. Flavour is just hot as hell. It says on the bottle the heat may vary, so maybe I got an extra spicy one, but this is the spiciest beer I’ve ever had. It’s quite fun, and still drinkably hot, but the fact this is such a quality underlying beer has been lost. If you’re going to put this much chilli in, why not just use some cheap rubbish. Feels like such a waste of Sculpin...

Tessic (1206) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2017
This one poured a cloudy medium amber colour with a soapy head. Minimal lacing. Scents include habaneros, malt and bread. First swig was....holy shit hot. For a beer anyway. Flavours of the habaneros with a light malt and tiny bit of bitterness. Finish is quite hot with a little bit of hop shining through. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
