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.

Tap at el Bait Shop. Medium gold body with a bright white head. Nose of sweet fruit and bell peppers. The taste has some strong spice of the peppers with some tropical notes. There is also some note at the end.

Tap. Golden with small head. Doesn’t seem that hot with the first sip, but the heat builds. Pepper beers aren’t my thing, but I can appreciate that this is well done.

Dark amber in color, clear with a thin head. Big pepper aroma. The IPA hops are masked for sure the pepper and the hops blend well together and the peppers make for a very nice heat and flavor. Great Mexican food beer.

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.

visionthing (5289) - 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!

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

Arve_Christian (5111) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2015
ON bottle from Vinmonopolet Norway, on order. Slightly hazy golden color. HIgh aroma intensity; habanero completely dominates (and makes you sweat), also hops, caramel , some fruitienss and vanilla. Medium body & complexity. Good bitterness and balance. Enjoyable, but spicy as hell!

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.

Homer321 (5006) - Melboring, Florida, USA - APR 23, 2014
bottle from craftshack dot com. aroma is just like fresh and yummy sculpin. lots of pine and grapefruit. large white head and a very clear light orange color. initial taste is hops followed quickly by a punch in my esophagus of hot peppers. holy hell this is interesting. just a bit of a sting is an understatement. this bad mamma jamma has more punch than a bomb or most pepper beers I have had. still a very solid offering, but not more than one could be consumed by this wussy

Pours a golden yellow color with big fizzy head. Aromas of peppers, yeast, and hops. Flavor start nice hoppy pale and then the heat sets in...
