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.

Le profil classique de la Sculpin est rehauss vigoureusement de lattirail habanero assez violent mais fonctionne bien avec la mangue, pche, mandarine et fleur sauvage qui habite la base. La chaleur inquite au dpart mais est facile apprivoiser au fur et mesure.

Bottle in Seattle. Gold rich gold. Interesting aroma of dense citrus fruit, rich hops and a touch of the pulp of the pepper. Aroma changes from typical Sculpin in to some wild guava and papaya. Pepper is bright and clear, quite hot, but it admittedly plays well with the fruity IPA. Not my favorite flavors, nor something Ill be reaching for again, but it does like good spicy food make me want to take another bite (sip) even when I dont understand why. Interesting variation for sure

Holmen1 (5219) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2016
Flaske fra helsekosten p Kvadd, hjemme: klar, dyp gylden med ok skum. Aroma av amerkanske humler (citrus og furunl). Smaken er overveldende chili, alle andre inntrykk forsvinner. Jeg liker godt chili og bruker det ofte i matlaging, men dette er way over the top. Comes with a lingering afterburn, definitely not for the faint of heart. Nr ganen har kommet seg over sjokket kan jeg kjenne en del citrus og aprikos, men allikevel finner jeg den completely unbalanced.

Draft. Pours clear gold with a fizzy white head. Smells like vegetable and light pepper. Tastes like spicy pepper, vegetable, pale malt... And a lot of spice. Light body and low carbonation.

Aurelius (5155) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2015
A little soapy tone to the aroma with a sneaky, slow burn pepper vapor. Clear, brassy brew. Sweet, malty, zippy spice, toffee. Not bad, but two swigs are all I want. On tap, Brass Tap, Gaines Street, Tallahassee.

bottle at home from brewdog online
fruity tomato like habanero on nose alongside mango. mango pithy bitterness at first with growing chili heat, great IPA but the habanero really a novelty. pairs well with bbq meat tho

Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is mild fruity, leafs, wet grass, dried fruits, hops, sap, minerals, orange, light malts. Taste is slightly dry grassy, leafs, grass, light malts, hops, sap, minerals, grassy chillies. Medium bitterness, slightly dry grassy chili mouthfeel with a pretty fast longlasting chili touch to it. Fair enough.

On tap at Meridian Pint. Nose is tropical with some mango. Citrus as well. Normal Sculpin. Flavor is mild heat, but not overwhelming. Masks the bitterness.

superspak (5000) - Michigan, USA - DEC 5, 2015
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/29/2015. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, habanero pepper, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, honey, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops, habanero pepper, and light-moderate malt notes; with good strength. Taste of huge grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, habenero pepper, pine, honey, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness and pepper spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange peel, pepper, pine, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical hops, habanero pepper, and light-moderate malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness from bitterness and pepper spice after the finish as well. Moderate amount of pepper heat, but not overwhelming. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately crisp/sticky/spicy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming other than the pepper heat on the finish. Overall this is an incredible pepper spiced IPA. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical hops, habanero pepper, and light-moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink even with the pepper spice and heat. A highly enjoyable offering.
