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 @ 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.

Sigmund (6950) - 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.

Strykzone (6941) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Sampled at esbls pinball. This lights up the tongoe. It also has a sweet fruity side. Peaches? Citrus. Had this right after Rogues Sriracha stout and this is much hotter. More complex, too. But the heat leads.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Draught @ Brouwers Caf:   Orange hued golden, thin to moderate foamy white head, decent lacing.   Noticeable heat on the nose.   Soft hop otherwise.   I am a bit concerned given the heat coming off of this one.   On the tongue its like being hit by a truck.   Very strong Habanero, too strong if you ask me.   Overshadows everything else in this beer.   Too hot, too spicy, and too much.   Seems like they ruined already fantastic Sculpin.   Damnit!

Marduk (6765) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 8, 2015
Tap @William K Frederik. Clear amber color. Medium size, white head, stays. Peppery, nettles, jalapenos, sweet and malty aroma. Jalapenos, malty, sweet, green spring onions, bit milky, stems in taste. I can really feel the heat of peppers in aftertaste. First sip takes time to get used to it, but later I get used to it. Sets my body in fire. But bit messy. Next day in the toilet was interesting. Worth to try brew.

Hermod (6753) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Tap @ bishops arms, gamla stan, Stockholm. Amber color, lasting white head. Peppers in aroma, grapefruity notes. Flavor has chili alright, burning. Tropical fruity but stays in the back as the chili overrides totally. Lasting burning sensation. Pleasant but in small doses.

mjs (6728) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2015
(Keg at One Pint Pub, 20151002) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, sweetness, pine, bell peppers and malts. Palate was medium bodied and burning with medium carbonation. Flavours were bell peppers, sweetness, fruitiness, malts, pine and bitterness. Aftertaste had chilli, sweetness and bitterness. A very burning brew but not really a bad one. Drinkability was not good.

Draught @ Ballast Point Miramar, San Diego, CA

Pours clear orange with a small head. Aroma of juicy fruits, zesty grapefruit, lemon, hints of spices and grass. Taste is smooth, hoppy and grassy with some spicy notes. Finish is warming with loads of chili notes, spices, hops and grass. Quite heavy. A total palate wrecker.

olsvammel (6601) - rebro, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2015
On tap at rebro lcaf. Fruity smell with chili and soap. Similar taste. The chli heat is very up front and aggressive. The hops is in the background. A bit soapy. Not something I would start my day with, it took a while to get rid of the chili heat.
