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.

Tap at Ballast Point. The beer pours to a dark amber glowing golden body with a white head. The aroma is simply 100% Sculpin with no peppers. The flavor is Sculpin, but it showcases the delicious flavor of the habanero pepper. I thought it had some heat, but not in that way that most of the spicy beers are (green peppers and hot). This beer was a marvelous rendition in that the pepper component came through as expected, rather than a nasty green pepper with heat. It actually blended quite well, and was a highlight of the evening!

From notes. 0,355l bottle at Harrys, Jyvskyl. 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.

Boom. Nice! If youre one of those idiots who puts way too much chili on everything youll like this. But its 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 (4418) - 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 (660) - 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 (1111) - 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.

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.
