Tap @ Taphouse Boise. Ordered the 4 oz taster, arrived a golden orange color with a small creamy beige head. The nose is outstanding. In fact this may be the best smelling IPA I can remember to date. Juicy grapefruit, citrus, and tropical fruit. Rich sweet, sour, and tangy. No hint of the heat yet, but it’s on the way. Taste is moderate bitters and a light sweetness… more malty than expected. The heat arrives on the back end and lingers a bit. Really a solid brew, boarder line outstanding. One is probably enough at one time; next time I’ll get a full pint. tderoeck (9924) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 9, 2016

Clear orange beer, creamy off-white head, bit adhesive. Aroma: quite some habanero, citric, floral touch. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: yes, that’s a distinct habanero flavour! Pretty spicy, hot, citrus, bit floral, very nice habanero. Aftertaste: very spicy, throat warming, lots of habanero heat, fruity flavours.
Aroma agradável. Cor dourada e espuma branca e duradoura. Sabor bem apimentado, deixando seu sabor em segundo plano. ffbot (420) - Oakland, California, USA - MAR 17, 2016
Pour is a slightly hazy orange with small thin heads that retains throughout. Smell is freshly chopped peppers, obviously spicy, but also sweet peppers and a tiny bit of beer sweetness. The taste is an initial boom of spice, strong mouth burn and sweat builds up, but the real mastery is the long enduring sweet pepper and balance afterwards. joeschmoe213 (18) - USA - MAR 29, 2016
Aroma: Peppers. Not the shake kind. Piney hops.
Taste: solid. sculpin. heat builds with the hops, leaves, then returns in the throat
Palate: oily ... good
Overall: Hot beer. Good for those who can handle spice. Not sure how you couldn’t like hot things.

Okay, this is a really good IPA with a burrrrrrnn finish. The burn drowns out some of the softer melon flavors of Sculpin, but it’s still a fine, citrusy flavor profile. But it’s hot. And I like spicy foods and peppers, but it’s very hard to drink a can of this yourself. Good to try if you have someone to split the can with. Good in chili or to soak brats, but a little pricey for that. Punkero (462) - FINLAND - FEB 4, 2017
Boom. Nice! If you’re one of those idiots who puts way too much chili on everything you’ll like this. But it’s a decent beer yeah. Freshness and flowery. Funny. DavidWoodruff (629) - Windsor, California, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Orange with a nice white head. Aroma is of tropical fruit and just a hint of peppers. Habanero dominates the flavor and melds well with the tropical fruit background. Nice heat which is balanced by sweet malt. I was concerned that hop bitterness would get in the way, but it does not. An excellent use of one of the hotter, but more flavorful peppers.

On tap at O’Brien’s’ pouring up via the Beer Engine with hazy gold to orange body and white head. The aroma has some sweetness and firm levels of Sculpin hoppiness with various citrus notes. I also get a mild background of chili pepper meat. The taste is Beer Engine smoothness and near creamy creating a Sculpin that is on the sweet side. It seems to start off a bit neutral in flavor with growing yet modest levels of sweetness and citrus before bold chili pepper burn and chili pepper flavor take over. The chili lingers and burns the lips for a good five minutes afterward. Darn spicy offering. m4rest88 (390) - Beverly Hills, California, USA - JUL 7, 2012
pours a golden hue with a small head
aroma of peppers, hops and tropical fruits - flavor is the same - the hops and habanero chili combo is fantastic - perfect combination
spicy mouthfeel that lingers as well
medium mouthfeel with light carb
