Tap. This is a novelty beer for me. It seems like a waste of sculpin because it has you focusing on the habanero and you lose the hops flavors. The spiciness it leaves behind in your mouth just seems wrong for a beer. Glad I tried a 4 oz sample. No need to do it again.
12oz bottle 6/24/17 (Jewel-Osco Clearance Rack)-42° in Shaker-Pours light orange with a solid white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, and habanero. Taste of hops and citrus on the front end and then habanero in the middle and back end. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and has a lot of flavor. gururyan (727) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 16, 2017
As one that really likes the habanero flavor, this tasted more like a hot gimmick that does nothing but add some zing to the finish in a way that basically ruins an otherwise great beer. MarcoDL (4920) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2017 Bottle at tasting. Golden pour. Aroma of spice, mild vanilla, malt and tropical fruit. Taste has some malt and vanilla for a second and than the extreme hot chili kicks in and takes over everything. Everlasting afterburn. This is just habanero water, what a bullshit.

Bottle into a tulip. Pours a clear light amber, with a medium white head that lasts. Good lacing. Nose is light malt and hop earthiness. Taste is typical IPA at first, and then the habanero kicks in, lasting through the long finish. Very nice Axile (129) - SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2017 Bottle from sb. Pours orange with a medium offwhite head. Lots of tropical fruits in the aroma, mango, pineapple, orangezest, chili and honey. Taste is habanero dominated with some tropical fruits in the background. As a chililover its good but not for thoose affraid of heat.

Orange with a nice white head. Aroma is of tropical fruit and just a hint of peppers. Habanero dominates the flavor and melds well with the tropical fruit background. Nice heat which is balanced by sweet malt. I was concerned that hop bitterness would get in the way, but it does not. An excellent use of one of the hotter, but more flavorful peppers. thejackpacker (446) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2017
On tap at Bishops Arms Östersund. It smells like a normal sculpin, maybe with even more wonderful hoppy aroma. Delicious smell. The taste however is just washed away with that insane amount of habernero chilli. I absolutely love spicy food but I’m not sure I want that much sting in my beers. Fascinating for a tiny sample but I could barely finish 100ml. Definitely ruined all the beers to come afterwards. Toned down I’m sure it would be delicious. shadey (2135) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2017
12oz bottle. Gold orange with no head. Odd pepper aroma on top of the normal sculpin hops. Flavors are similarly odd mix. Not the best sculpin. sir__v (2629) - FRANCE - MAY 14, 2017
Bottle from Beergium.com - Color: clear golden blond beer with small carbonation and small white foam. Smell: sweet and hoppy nose. Small spicy hint. Taste: medium body with a spicy blast, pepper notes and sweet malt balanced with fresh hops. Quite good. Aftertaste: spicy and wet bitterness. Sweet. decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2017
