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.

Habanero Sculpin, like the fish it’s named after, lies in wait for you. It relies on natural camouflage. While you do smell some habanero, the hops do what they do best and grapefruit, orange, and pine make up most of the aromatics. You’re tricked into thinking that this beer doesn’t have a lot of pepper. That it will only have a slight kick. You know you’re wrong as soon as it’s on your lips. It just continues from there. Heat on the tongue, roof of the mouth, and esophagus. It keeps going downward. This saga probably isn’t over. Tomorrow I’ll likely experience the burn in a far less entertaining way. While there’s a hint of the original hoppy Sculpin flavor, the whole thing is basically dominated by the intense pepper oils. Still, it’s impressive that this beer isn’t more punishing than it is. You’ll know it’s habanero, no doubt, but it’s doable. Pretty remarkable that the 4 variations of Sculpin I’ve tried have all been totally unique yet well-executed. I consider this an occasional novelty, yet it’s a very good one.

A pleasant citrus aroma, pours a hazy Amber color with a well laced white head. A resin hops taste with a hint of caramel and citrus. A spicy peppery finish.

Bottle - Slight cloudy light orange color. Has a slightly spicy nose. The taste is nothing but habanero which is disappointing for this beer. The spicy flavor overwhelms any other flavor that would be present. Not a bad beer but certainly a one off. You have to find the right food pairing for this and I think it would be great.

33cl från systembolaget. Grym öl. Helt otroligt hur habaneron kickar in i slutet. Funkar grymt bra till chilli.

BOTTLE. Golden pour with minimal head.. Habanero nose, some pepper.. Intense heat from the habanero upfront, malt base softens heat in middle, some hops, then the heat & pepper come in hard at back end.. Leaves the lips & tongue dancing.. Sourced RW

Rask0lnikov (1575) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 1, 2016
330ml bottle. Golden yellow colour. Medium white head. Apricoty, citrussy, quite fruity, spicy aroma. Spicy beginning. Chilli overshadows all the other tastes already in the middle. Very spicy finish. Only at the very beginning there is some hints of fruitiness and citrusses. Rather medium bodied, medium carbinated, very spicy, freaky beer.

Intense taste of habanero. I mean intense! The overall feeling is hanging long time after

Aroma of peaches and tropical fruit. The taste, though, is where this beer brings the heat. It’s like a craft beer Cesear! Some pine and citrus in the background but it’s mostly hot pepper and lots of it.

Great base beer with clean malt and bright aromatic hops. Habanero was raw and grassy, with moderate heat and no fruity or floral character.

Damn they have upped the Habanero on this batch. Lip tingling good on top of a very solid IPA. Great, Great stuff and hugely fun. Fuck yeah.
