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.

Keg, Brewdog Leicester. Golden with an off white foam. Nutty grain with grapefruit and hot pepper. Peppery with honey and lemon. Biscuity malts with a dry finish. Interesting.

Bottle from Brewdog webshop, consumed at home Thursday 16th July 2015 Orangey gold in colour with a filmy white head. Quite thick in the mouth, nice consistency, lovely. Woah....Flying Fuckpigs this is soooo hot, but the heat, sweetness and bitterness works very well, really mushy mexican chilli paste. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

Tap at Busters. Orange - golden pour with a white head. Still get some of the citrus / apricot in here, but on taste, it’s just fiery hot. Not my deal, but fun.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2016 On tap @ Aces & Ales in Vegas, and had alongside Joseph James Habanero Hop Box IPA. They were more similar than I would have guessed, but in the end I felt the Sculpin to be the better pepper IPA. The hops shone through a little brighter, with more balance between the underlying IPA character and the pepper character. Similar heat quotient though. SPICY!

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a clear golden color with a medium plus sized white head. The aroma and flavor have quite a bit of peppery heat, citrus and tropical fruit hops try to come through. I get that this is a polarizing kind of beer, but I happen to enjoy the peppery beers. The burn is lasting, but the fruity notes linger as well.

jercraigs (10374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
2013-04-20. Modest aroma, light spice, hops. 7+ Flavour is briefly lovely, citrus hops are a glimpse of something. Then burny... jeebus f-ck! Oh god, why did I drink this! Average palate. A perfectly good IPA ruined. On tap at Coles, Buffalo

Draught at 3 små rum on July 24, 2015.
Clear golden color, white head with lacing. Sweet, fruity scent. Malty, chilli taste. Chilli heat aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.

olio (10269) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2015
355 ml bottle @ Timo A. Thanks rosenbergh!
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Some grassy notes on the nose, hops, resin and citric fruits. The habanero kicks in right from the bat on the flavor, some resinous hops and caramel, orange and mild grapefruits, lingering and slightly burning habanero on the aftertaste. Very nice palate wrecker.

Draft. Clear gold, low head. Nose of habanero, plus some citrus and light malt and a bit of tropical, but the peppers dominate. Flavor is repugnant spicy, firey chili peppers that have no business in an IPA. This is crap, and a terrible idea.

phaleslu (10247) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2014
12 oz. bottle shared by Tom - thanks again! Pours a clear, bright gold with a medium white head. The aroma is fairly vegetal, with big peppers throughout, plus straw, grass, and tropical fruits. The flavor is the same. I feel my lips burn a little after a few minutes. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter, spicy mouthfeel. Overall, a good, fun pepper beer that probably benefits from such a good underlying IPA. However, the base IPA is overwhelmed a bit.
