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.

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.

visionthing (5066) - 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!

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.

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!

Tap. The look is clear, golden bright colored, with a thin head. The smell is peppers, veggie, light, muted, and ok. The taste is pepper, chiles, spiced, definitely some heat at the back of the mouth. Interesting.

_angst_ (4727) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2015
Draught @ BrewDog Gbg. Pours clear golden with a rather small frothy offwhite head that leaves some thick trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is tiny malty, fruity and spicy with caramel, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, red chilli, moist grass, pine needles and lemon zest. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter, slightly fruity and heavy spicy. Mouthfeel is astringent, spicy hot and medium bodied. Finish is bitter with crackers, caramel, grapefruit, red habanero, moist grass, pine needles and lemon zest. I like habanero but this is pretty much carpet bombing of the base beer. All that remains is the habanero and were not talking the aromatic and fruity orange kind but the pretty much just hot red supermarket kind.

DialSquare (4720) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2014 On tap at Hunahpu day 13. Had this early on, which was a bad idea. Scattered notes: definite kick, burns going down. taste the vegetal ipa up front then all pepper - 6.8 - good but rough to drink. now my stomach hurts and nobody else wants to finish theirs. cant leave men behind. now my internal organs are falling off... unique, but never again.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking glossy orange with a nice looking transparency about it. Carbonation is seen rising at a moderate pace to fill a rapidly dissipating foamy one finger white head. Lacing is spotty and clingy. The smell starts reminiscent of regular sculpin - sweet pine, sweet fresh cut grass, mango and grapefruit rolling into the habanero heat. The taste takes the flavors from the aroma to combine and allows the heat to go full throttle for a good couple minutes. Sweet green pepper enlivens to a long wet aftertaste and vegetable finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The heat is there to bounce back the carbonation a bit which shows on my tongue. However, it seems the heat also detracts from the bitterness level of an AIPA, honestly, Im okay with that. Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA with the habanero spice to boot. Perhaps a bit of a palate wrecker, but Id have again.
