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.

Poured an orangish color at Hunhapu day, with huge aromas of hot peppers, and light hops. Flavors are the same, all hot pepper meat, light pepper flesh, and a touch of hops. Pepper flavor lingers on the palate.

nearbeer (5607) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 2, 2017
12 oz. no bottling date. Light haze on the orange-gold brew. A thin creamy film above that endures well. Aroma is tropical fruit mix with prominent grapefruit, resiny herb and an earthy-metallic roasted vegetable note. Flavors of caramel, green herb and peach are quickly overtaken by the earthy roasted pepper and a capsaicin burn. The near-medium body has a dry heat and a pleasant medium carbonation.

stevoj (5587) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 9, 2016
Habanero at the forefront, gently in aroma, moreso in taste, and plenty of burn at finish. Orange golden body with fluffy head. Peppers pretty much obliterate any sign of the Sculpin base, but add some character all their own.

2.9
Aurelius (5572) - 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.

JohnnyJ (5569) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Draft at OBriens. Clear bright golden pour, white head with nice lacing. Tropical fruity hops initially, and then dominate fresh habanero peppers, very hot and spicy. Glad to have tried it, but I probably won’t drink this again.

3.6
visionthing (5534) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 30, 2016
On tap at Bier Bier, Helsinki. Almost clear golden with a moderate, white head. Fairly modest hoppy aroma with citrus and tropical fruits. Feels ordinary and quute boring at first, but then the habanero kickd in. Nice chili kick, both sin flavour and the pleasant burn it gives. Medium sweet with fairly pleasant hoppy flavours and a nice chili burn. Nice one!

3.4
badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 3, 2013
On tap. Clear dark golden with a fluffy white head. Strong pepper aroma and some hops on the nose. Taste is all hot pepper with a lot of capsicum on the finish. Not my thing.

3.3
Ktwse (5464) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2013
Pours clear golden amber with low white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, mango, peach and loads of habanero. Taste is WTF? Habanero, and tons of it. This is hotter than a vindaloo. Body is light and fresh, I suppose... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.4
jkwood04 (5463) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 22, 2015
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of standard Sculpin with citrusy and resinous hops, some pale malts with light notes of caramel, and some dough. Flavor the same but a very peppery, spicy finish. Average texture. Sort of a pointless beer since normal and grapefruit are so good.

3.8
markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2012
On draft at GABF 2012. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Nose is big caramel with some pine, citrus, and earthy peppers with hints of burn in the nose. Flavor is nice malt, big citrus, and strong earthy peppers with some burn bordering on impolite. Medium in body and an interesting twist on Sculpin.
