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.

Okay, this is a really good IPA with a burrrrrrnn finish. The burn drowns out some of the softer melon flavors of Sculpin, but it’s still a fine, citrusy flavor profile. But it’s hot. And I like spicy foods and peppers, but it’s very hard to drink a can of this yourself. Good to try if you have someone to split the can with. Good in chili or to soak brats, but a little pricey for that.

7%ABV. IPA. Poured out Amber gold. 8°SRM. Nose has ripe pineapples. Pine, herbaceous and fresh chili spice aromas. Faint Thai mouse chili aroma. Mouthfeel is soapy. There is immediate spicy heat like drinking Tom Yum soup or a curry. Nice slightly lingering burn at he back of the throat. Palate has the malt backbone of a sculpin. Finish is bitter herbs, minty and with the fresh heat of a raw chili pepper.

355ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with some floaties and a medium, frothy, long lasting, white head that laces nicely. Sweet, spicy aroma of habanero peppers, grapefruit, mango and peach. Sweet flavour of grapefruit, peach, mango and apricot with a spicy pepper finish that kicks you in the face. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. This beer packs some heat!!! I liked it, but I can see why some may not. Not for the faint of heart!

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.

argeru (96) - Hillsboro, Oregon, USA - JUL 16, 2016
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.

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.

bartzluke (598) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 4, 2016
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.
