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.

PorterPounder (8364) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2015
Athens, Ga. - Five Points Bottle Shop - Atlanta Hwy - 12 oz bottle. Light, sparkling copper pour, thin off-white head. Aroma has some light spruce accents, a hint of habanero, some apricot fruitiness. Flavor has a delectable pepper burn to it, some light citrus bitterness, a hint of apricot fruitiness, a hint of smokiness in the finish. Crisp mouthfeel, burn can overwhelm the weak at heart.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8308) - 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.

PhillyCraft (8202) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2012
On tap at PH, pours a very hazy copper orange with medium off white head, nice lacing. Aromas of hops, malt, light pepper, vanilla, orange, and pine. Taste is filled with citrus, pine, vanilla and caramel tasting malts, strong peppers. Really gives the throat and back of the mouth a tingle from the habanero. The heat continues to build in other parts of the body as you consume more. Medium to fuller bodied, well carbonated. It was nice but I couldn’t take the heat by then end of the glass. Use half the amt of habanero next time and this thing would be awesome.

Keg at Brewdog Bar cons 2016-06-26 Göteborg AR: bready, dried tropical fruits AP: clear coppery, frothy white head F: hot metallic habanero chili, cucumber, lemon juice, perhaps you could use it when making food for spicing things up, to hot - didn’t enjoy it all

teorn88 (8066) - Rimini, ITALY - 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

3.2
AirForceHops (8037) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 25, 2015
12 oz bottle. The aroma is just like the base sculpin with juicy grapefruit, mild pine and peach. Pale malts, nicely juicy.

The flavor starts like the base brew and for me it still was kind of mild pepper tones for the first 3 oz. the heat then really stacked up and got overbearing. Dry texture with lingering heat. I have NEVER been a fan of pepper in my beer but it maybe ok for someone who really enjoys hot stuff.

2.7
Sigmund (8033) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2015
355 ml bottle, from the Norwegian importer. ABV is 7.0%. Deep golden colour, slightly hazy. Moderate white head. Aroma of fruity American hops, hints of dust. Can hardly detect the habaneros. Hoppy flavour, some fruit and pine, immediately followed by a vehement habanero burn in the finish and aftertaste. Way too hot. Unbalanced, to a degree bordering on the ridiculous.

3.3
after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2015
Tap at SB. Pours a hazy medium gold with orange highlights. Creamy off-white head that sticks around for a while. Bright oranges and grapefruit on the nose, clear spicy pepper note coming through with the orange-y note from the habs. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Light caramel, oranges, grapefruit, and heat on the mid palate. Long hot dry finish. More fun to mix with other beers than to drink by itself, but it certainly has a devoted following all its own.
