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.

argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - APR 7, 2013
Draft. Crystal clear amber body with medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit/orange, light chili pepper. Taste is medium sweet, orange/grapefruit. Faint chili burn in the finish with slight cumulative effect. Very restrained for a pepper beer (especially compared with Ballast Point’s Thai Ginger Chile Wahoo Wheat). Medium body, light acidity, low carbonation.

Lubiere (13900) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2013
A golden amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, interesting mix of biscuit malt, floral hops, and hot pepper, nice. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with floral hops and loads of hot pepper, burning, not bad. On tap at Breukelyn Bier Merchants.

Christian (13670) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2011
Cask at the GBBF 2011. Golden with a small white head. The aroma has lots green pepper and a bit of grass. The flavour is insanely hot, but actually has some interesting complexity - just too bad you can’t taste it

Keg at Brewdog AGM. Pours clear amber, nose is pine, citrus, toffee, capsicum, taste is citrus and toffee up front, huge burn, peppery, long chili linger.

3.5
BeerandBlues2 (13307) - Escondido, California, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Tap at Max’s. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, frothy white head, short retention with good lacing. Aroma is pine, resin, and citrus hops, habenero, and cracker malt. Flavor is spicy peppers, heavy hops and bitterness, supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2011

3.5
Dogbrick (13010) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. Dark amber color with a medium white head that disappears quickly, and short strings of lace. Peppers and hops in the nose. Medium body with a moderately spicy pepper flavor with some hops and malt behind it. Lingering spicy aftertaste. Decent beer, although I drank this too early in the session and had to flush with a lot of water immediately after due to the spiciness. Decent overall.

4.2
crossovert (12911) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2013
2 words: fuck yes. Tropical, habanero, medium to high spiciness, good throat tingle, bitterness adds to the heat. Fuck yes.

2.8
hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2013
On at Capone’s. Poured a golden color with a white head. Yep, there’s habanero in this one. The hoppy IPA was in the background, but this one ended in too much of a spicy burn for me to finish.
