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.

ACHops (1476) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 15, 2013
On tap @ BeerJunction. Pours orangish dark golden with medium white head. Aroma is earthy, citrusy hops with a hint of spicy heat. Taste is clean light caramel malt that is quickly overwhelmed by sharp habanero heat. Hops appear under the spicy heat on the finish, but the peppers never relent in controlling the flavor here. Its the Sculpin you know and love, with heavy pepper heat laid over it. Definitely unique, but much of the appeal of Sculpin was the light, aromatic, perfectly balanced hops and thats mostly lost here to the heat.

explosivedog (567) - 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 Ive ever had. Its quite fun, and still drinkably hot, but the fact this is such a quality underlying beer has been lost. If youre going to put this much chilli in, why not just use some cheap rubbish. Feels like such a waste of Sculpin...

Tessic (1077) - 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

Chili can go both ways when it comes to beer. In this case it makes up for an absolutely intense and unique beer. Maybe a bit too over powering but the combination of hops and complex fruity habanero is really interesting.

mikeymike (41) - Kansas, USA - NOV 25, 2016
While Im a big fan of the regular Sculpin and the fruit flavors, this one just didnt do it for me. Unlike other pepper IPAs which are well balanced, like Alaskan Jalapeo IPA, the pepper overpowers the delicate IPA flavors and aromas, with a substantial lasting burn from the capsaicin. Fun to try once, but I wont be buying this again - nor will I take free samples of it.

Bottle. Habanero, orange caramel malt, and straw aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Very spicy habanero pepper, lightly sweet orange caramel malt, and lightly bitter straw flavor. Good body. Lots of heat - pretty intense but tolerable - however it overwhelms nearly everything else.

Semiclear copper with pure white head. Habanero, citrus pineapple and herbal. Burning with delicious capsicum. Awesome.

Draft... Unsure what to do with this one. Aroma of spicy celery, hops. Neat spicy IPA feel to it, some grain. Great for a fun gimmicky beer but the spiciness is a tad too distracting for me.

bottle. neat beer. Heat from Habanero is right off the start - great balance of hops and heat. Love these styles of beer - this being one of the better ones

Patrickctenchi (6321) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 24, 2016
Bottle: Clear, bubbly, brassy gold with a small white head. Mango, habanero, grain aroma. Strong habanero heat after just a few seconds....mango, orange, lemon flavours show,but are covered up by a substantial burn... Way more heat than expected.....Not bad, but all base Sculpin notes are completely buried.
