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 Apex - pours light amber with an off-white head. The aroma has grapefruit, toast and is smooth and dry. It has a medium / full body that is still pretty crisp with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with toasty malt, grapefruit, some pepper meat and a bit of paper. The finish has lots of peppery heat and hops. Pretty nice for what it is.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Tropical fruit and grapefruit rind aroma. Since there is no hint of heat in the aroma the first taste is a shock with spicy heat overwhelming the faint mango, tangerine, and grapefruit in the background. Heat lingers on the palate. If you enjoy spicy beers this is done very well but I am not a big fan of spicy foods in general so I am not likely to revisit this one.

Bouteille, merci Dave - Ibrew2or3 for the trade. Fin orang, col fin beige. Arme est plus centr sur les houblons, ici la chaleur ressentie en bouche est minime et qcq effluves parviennent cependant tre l. Agrumes font le jeu ici, et le malt accompagne le tout en restant cependant bien marqu. Palais met de suite tout le monde daccord, cest bien du habanero, et donc risque de ne pas faire que des heureux. La chaleur du piment est bien et perce de suite et ds la premire gorge. Le tout est rchauffant, ne brle pas mais offre assez de chaleur pour tre unique, retrouve un profil malt juste en retrait tirant sur un lger biscuit. La chaleur perdure, et laisse tout de mme passer le houblon qui est lger mais centr sur un profil agrumes plaisant. Retrouve le ct pulpeux du piment, surtout au niveau de la peau.

Damned if you do and damned if you dont, this habanero IPA blisters at the end, but it has a peppery, pepper fruit profile that precedes the burn... every time. Really good mixed with pineapple and grapefruit sculpin to balance the heat and citrus...

Bottle. Pours a brilliant clear gold with an off-white head. Citrus hops with a habanero spiciness in the taste and aroma. Nicely hot mouthfeel throughout.

flatmatt (1552) - Northville, Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2016
12 oz bottle. Pours golden with a fine particle haze and a white head. Chili heat in the aroma, followed by a mix of green pepper and some citrusy hops. A lot of heat in here, with some bell pepper and black pepper flavor, not leaving much room for the IPA base. I think I still get a suggestion of the IPA somewhere in there, though. Regardless, its quite the tasty chili beer.

Bottle enjoyed at home
Copper hazy, big creamy beige head. Smell of grapefruit, citrus, pine and malts. Moderate sweet, some fruityness and citrus before the habanero kicks in and take over the show. Wow! After this everything is mostly habanero chili.......... and some biting piny stuff in the back. I like it!
