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.

[Bottle (355ml)] Pours a clear deep orange with a large lasting frothy white head. Aroma smells like Sculpin at first and then, after a bit, theres the habanero. The flavour though: Whoa! It is really spicy. Like REALLY spicy. Medium bodied. Super intense, its a good thing I like spicy stuff.

I can not really find anything wrong with this beer. The only problem is that it is so loaded with habanero that it kills all other flavors. Could just have been a pale lager instead of a nice ipa. So what score shall I give this.well they surly intended to make it this way. So I have to give it a decent score. Nothing wrong with it. Just undrinkable.
[On tap at 3 Sm Rum in Gothenburg, Sweden]

Tap sample at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 4/3/14. Clear orange pour with a medium white head. Aroma of orange, pine, grapefruit and slight chile pepper. Malty and piney flavor with pepper and citrus before a warm pepper finish.

teorn88 (7218) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2015
Backlog rating. Keg at Two Bit in BD Shoreditch, London. It pours a clean orange color with small white head. Aroma is floral, grassy, zesty, with grapefruit, lemon leaves. Taste is dry and hot, with notes of lemon, grapefruit, grass and chilies. Quite hot really. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, not my kind of beer

FROTHINGSLOSH (7178) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark golden color with a medium sized creamy orange-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweet pine, cactus and hot pepper. The flavor was pine, cactus, intense hot pepper and lots of sweetness to balance the heat. The hot pepper has an oiliness that sticks to the tongue. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

Sample shared @ RBWG Tampa. Thanks to whoever brought this! Brilliant gold pour with a small white head. Nose doesnt mess around. Strong peppery heat. Mellow grain and peach. Similar flavor. Hot sting of pepper with some underlying sherbet and tropical fruitiness. Medium body, moderate carbonation. OK, well made, but not really my thing. Keep pepper out of beer!

TheAlum (7051) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Draft shared on tap at Aces and Ales 2 (Las Vegas, NV). Pours an amber orange hue, very healthy glow, faint haze. Frothy whitish head stays as a filmy layer, laces ok. Aromas are more hoppy, floral and grassy, touches of citrus fruit but more gentle. Faint pepper spice. Initial is lighter end of the fold, some spice and citrusy hops mix. A lighter body with some nice peppery spice that grows in a wave. Citrusy hops die out from the front end, with some gentle bread, faint fruit. Middle is spicy, pepper driven, earthy and a touch smokey, medium to firm heat spice. Backend is spicy, dry, and gentle bready malts. The pepper element is firm, stronger, but not ovewhelming for my palate (as a pepper fan admittedly). Some nice spice lines the throat and esophagus. Finis is spice, bready, dry. Some touches of lingering floral hops. Really integrated well. The pepper seemingly kills the hops.. Or maybe its just an older keg and the hops have faded a bit. Either way, its a very nice beer on its own. Nice.

Cask @ Blind Tiger. Orange pour with no real head. While it is nice to try a different sculpin, this is essentially great ipa plus hot, for those who like peppers this is a must, although bit too hot for me. A couple ounces were enough for me.
