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.

Draft at friendly Greek. Pours golden with an inch of white foam. Has some citrus on the nose. Big fucking habanero on the tongue. Huge. Real, real spicy. Lingers for hours. It is an acquired taste but its actually some flavor even as it melts your tongue.

On tap @ Rattle N Hum courtesy of infi. Thanks Jonathan!. Its 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 its 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

Bottle shared at RBWG 2015! Pours a clear gold with thin bubbly white head. Aroma is peppers over juicy hops. Taste is big on the peppers, damn, woah. Interesting but not as bad as some pepper beers.

Tap at Ballast Point Oak Grove. Pours a lightly hazy golden with a smaller bubbly white head. Aroma of habaneros and citrusy hops. Although pepper really dominates. Flavor is all habanero too! Not my thing at all.

12oz bottle. Looking at reviews, this is a polarizing beer. Im a huge pepper/heat fan, so not surprisingly I fall on the positive side. The other side consists of wimps. If youre a pansy who cant take the slightest bit of heat, just dont 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! Im glad they didnt 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 (4582) - 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. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Taster at the brewery. Golden color with white head. Amazing tropical-and-grapefruit hoppy nose, like the regular Sculpin, not much of the chilis there yet. Taste gives a immediate Habanero sting, then fruity, then a clean bitterness. Really hot. A masterpiece in terms of how the things work out, the habanero hits you only in the taste. I love it, but beware: I like very hot and spicy things, although I usually dont adore chili beers.

They arent 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.

Blairgus (4472) - California, USA - AUG 11, 2012
11 aug 2002, tap at the brewery. Dark yellow, clear, no bubbles. Nose is faint green chili and malt. IPA nose is completely gone. Med/thin body and almost flat. Lots of habanero and not much else. Straw and habanero. Fire up front but it fades fast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
