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.

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.

Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured clear amber with a thick, lacy white head. Aroma was mostly dank and earthy hops. Heat and chili pepper presence with a clean finish and lingering spiciness. Balanced and not too heavy with the heat and actually pepper flavor which was pleasant.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2016 The great taste of Sculpin with a healthy dose of hot habanero. I personally enjoy these pepper beers and this one is one of the best I?ve ever had. Pretty hot but if you see it on tap give it a try!

Pours a clear amber with a white head which dissipates quick.....aroma of earthiness.....taste is normal Sculpin intro with maltiness which turns earthy then HOT in a hurry and lingers. Not my cup of tea but cant stop drinking it.....it starts to burn deep in the throat and then travel. Quite a difference experience.

First sip was dreadful and I considered pouring it out. But the GF and I started to take a liking to it. Very spicy, only one other beer Ive had that was more hot. This was a sipper and I certainly dont think someone could have more then one per session.

Dug this quite a bit. The habanero dominates the flavor a bit too much but a good chili IPA. Still some tropical notes but with a strong mouth burn in the finish.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2015 Bottle from CBB. Almost clear gold, decent lacing. Awesome grapefrut aroma with a hint of green peppers. Flavour starts hoppy and zesty. Soon turns super spicy. Delicious, but two would be self-harm.

I am not a fan of too much heat but this was a wonderful drinking experience. Amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is a quick sniff of fruity hops quickly snuffed out by the peppers. First sip was hot for me. I better take it slow. The fruity hops and the habanero peppers work great together. Made my brow sweat though, but none-the-less, a great drinking experience. So-so lacing.

Holy heat Batman. Had in bottle. Just putting my tongue in the bottle and the peppers attack. Great aroma. Really spicy. Ipa is nice and this makes me want rice.

Bottle from Sendiks in Brookfield. Pours a clear orange with an off-white head. Nose had fresh sweet grapefruit and some pine. Taste is heavily peppery without much other stuff underneath. There is some citrus in the very beginning of the mouthfeel and perhaps in some sweet malt, however pepper is the main component and pepper is the strong finish. Medium-bodied and a bit sticky. Finishes long and peppery with a bit of bitterness. This is interesting, with a great nose, but the pepper is too overwhelming. 14.2
