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.

Cask (gravity) @ GBBF 2011, Great British Beer Festival, Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London, England.

Clear medium yellow orange colour with a average, frothy - fizzy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, pale malt, chili, sweet chili fruit. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and heavy bitter with a long long duration, heavy heavy chili burn. To much for me ! Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. IMO just mostly undrinkable. [20110802]

[email protected] Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, sweet malty with a bunch of peppery notes as well. Flavour is floral, fruity and has got an extreme burn to it in the finish and aftertaste. Utterly shite and unbalanced flavour.

Keg at GBBF of all places. Holy cow, CAMRA has come a long way. This one had all the tastiness of the original, but a bit too much heat for my taste.

Keg at SBWF. Hazy golden, small head. Chili aroma with some citrus. Dryish with medium body and clean rounded mouthfeel. As expected habanero takes over. Chili burn dominate the finish.

GBBF Cask. Hazy gold beer, suddy white head. Light hoppy nose that doesn’t give too much away. Mild citrus hops start and then the chilli starts and then it builds. After that it ramps up. Then it gets hotter. You get the idea! Very very hot and frankly undrinkable!

Cask at GBBG, Day 1. This was an incredibly divisive beer. Pours clear gold with a bubbly, white head. Big hop nose with definite notes of habanero. Flavor is just WAY too hot with raw habanero peppers. I can’t really detect much else in the flavor as MY TONGUE IS ON FIRE. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Burns like hell on the finish without stopping. Minutes pass and yet the burn lingers. Can’t really tell if hops are there, but I’m inclined to say they’ve been burned off. I could barely finish a third of a pint of this. When I did finish, I was sweating profusely and I considered leaving the festival to visit a hospital. Definitely too hot overall.
