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 @ The Ginger Man Nee York. Orange amber, not much head. Chilli hop aroma. Overpowering hot spicy sickly chilli flavour and aftertaste. Struggled to finish this one.

Kavu (4981) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 7, 2015
1/2 pint on tap @ One Pint Pub. Pours clear golden with a low head. Aroma is malts, fruits and some habanero. Flavor is malts, fruits, loads of habanero and some hops. This must have a higher scoville rating than Tabasco! Burns your lips. Great!

They aren’t kidding about the habanero. A pepper beer for pepper beer lovers. Not really me. Surprising bitterness but this beer is defined by the pepperiness. Wish I had had someone to share this with, since the last third was rough.

On Tap slightly hazy lightorange. Thin wispy head and lacing. LIght citrusy aroma with only a hint of the firey inferno to come. Flavor was very hot. B ig time peppery heat and still some nice clean grapefruit citrus in there as well.

On tap @ Rattle N Hum courtesy of infi. Thanks Jonathan!. It’s a really cloudy looking one this, almost murky brown in the glass with a small off-white head on top. It has a nice fresh grassy herbal tea-like nose with traces of chocolate paper and dark malts. A bit strange but nice. In the mouth it’s light oily with a soft carbonation level. I get some soft prickling hints of the habanero, but its nowhere as warming as I was expecting. Some more chocolate paper also appears. Tea like finish. A good one, but I was really hoping for a bit more punch. 14.06.2013

_angst_ (4802) - Göteborg, 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 we’re not talking the aromatic and fruity orange kind but the pretty much just hot red supermarket kind.

12oz bottle. Looking at reviews, this is a polarizing beer. I’m a huge pepper/heat fan, so not surprisingly I fall on the positive side. The other side consists of wimps. If you’re a pansy who can’t take the slightest bit of heat, just don’t drink a habanero beer! The appearance is average, orangish-golden with a fast-fading one-finger head. The aroma has grapefruit and tropical fruit notes with a hint of habanero. The flavor has great heat! I’m glad they didn’t hold anything back. It matches well with a slightly sweet malt base and bright fruity hoppiness. The palate is really nice. Medium-bodied and crisp with a burning sensation. This is freaking badass! I love it and would drink it all day. Wimps need not apply.

Habanero (4773) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2015
Bottled. Pours hazy amber with an avarage sized off-white head leaving a good lacing. Aroma of grapefruit,mpeach, caramel peppery notes and pine. Sweet flavor that ends up quite dry and nice bitter with some chili too. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice chili IPA. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Cavie (4760) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Bottle. Clear amber color. Dominant hop aroma. New World hops, citrusy, resiny. Bright. Pepper aroma but subdued to the hops. Hop flavor upfront with a definite pepper kick. Big pepper heat on the finish. Good flavor though.

On tap at World of Beer in Arlington. Clear golden with a large off-white head. Aroma is of grass, peppers, huge citrus, floral. Taste starts with grapefruit, bitter florals, grass, and pepper, the finish is an excellent burning sensation. Very well done. I was worried that the pepper would overpower an IPA that I love. The peppers have a strong presence, but the wonderful IPA notes still shin through. Probably my favorite pepper beer.
