Flavor so balanced that it’s damn near unbelievable. Piney/ citrusy bouquet. Looks the way an ale should; crisp, clear, and copper. Exceptional drinkability with just the right amount of heat. Absolutely love it. 77ships (9827) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2016
355 ml. bottle sampled @ “Sir Goatie McGoat S&G Tasting”. Thank you Mathieu87 and/or PriorL! Regular, Grapefruit, Pineapple & Habanero sampled side-by-side. Darker looking than the others. Nose is nice chili burn, no vegetable notes, chili obscures most other things. Taste is nice big oily chili, nicely lingering, good burn, no vegetable notes, base is largely obscured, low malts & pine, burns nice, not that much here besides Habanero which is just fine by me & great if you love chili. Up next they will release a habanero & pineapple version I hope. JJSuds (16) - California, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Bravo Ballast Point! This beer perfectly captures the essence of an habanero- floral and nose-piercingly sharp- while retaining the citrus notes of the Sculpin. Slipstream (2625) - USA - FEB 16, 2013
From a cask at The Bronx Ale House, while watching some playoff football. A really interesting variation on BP’s flagship IPA. Lots of chili spice and hop resin makes for a lively, intense, eye-opening brew. This is being a little under-rated imho, maybe by people who aren’t crazy about capsaicin in their beer. mixmasterob (1057) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Hunahpus day. Clear orange pour with a small head. Aroma was big time citrus and pine. No peppers on the nose. Flavors were big and hoppy up front with a biting pepper heat on the finish. It was hot but it came and went in quick fashion. Rather excellent.

My question: Just how much habanero is in this beer? The answer: enough to make a spicy food fan like myself happy to have some water nearby. The spice and the hops marry almost as good as peanut butter and jelly. But the nose: absolutely awesome. It truly smells of habanero pepper. Probably the spiciest beer I've had, but also a damn good and thoughtfully made IPA.

Great as a taster because the habanero is stronger than the beer. Had on tap in a 4 oz glass and couldn't imagine drinking a full glass.

Smell of juicy fruit, appearance is gold with thin white head, taste is sweet earthy malt with a nice heat at the end. sonnycheeba (5988) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear amber with creamy white head. Aroma is bready and cereal malts, spice, floral notes, and some tropical fruit notes. Flavor is hop bitterness forward quickly overtaken by habanero spice with slight malt sweetness and faint citrus notes. Medium body and carbonation.

Peppery aromas. Mild heat which worked well with the hops giving tropical flavor. Glad it was only a 12oz.
