The aroma is floral, grass, some spruce. Pours a golden copper with off white mostly lasting and excellent lacing. The taste is bitter. The body is medium/light, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish bitter with a nice bite. Very Good!! Nice heat with the bitter bite and good long finish. dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Amazing, great hops and the spice that pairs with hops, all in one glass! It’s the thin, dry, citrus you know frmo sculpin with the peppers hitting the back side and providing a burning peppery finish. Get it if you can. Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Loved this because it held all the flavor profile of the awesome Sculpin IPA and added a zing of heat to it without being overpowering. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Draft at Jerry’s. Dark gold with big, foamy, white head, good lacing / Bright nose of citrus, weed, cut pine, honey / Medium body, crisp, excellent balance with bitter finish, and very spicy / Flavors of honey, grapefruit, cut pine, resin, very hot but not much of a vegetal flavor / Very nice, with quite a spice kick.

On tap at beermongers - pours orange with a white head, earthy pepper with slight citrus aroma. Balanced heat, zippy hops, the pepper is well showcased.

When I heard there was a Habanero version of Sculpin, I figured it was just another lame gimmick. But after pouring this amber beauty and smelling the nice citrus hops, I thought it would be a weak chili beer like Cave Creek---wrong, way wrong. This is almost a perfect blend of chili with hops except for the finish. I love how the citrus hops fade away and the pepper comes rolling over it, but then it keeps on coming. The pepper lasts longer than any other beer flavor. Perhaps if there was more bitterness of hop at the end WITH the habanero I would have given it a much higher rating. As is, 4 out of 5 Alphadelic (2237) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Lovely dark orange IPA. The nose is fresh and hoppy with a tropical fruit aroma with some fruity pepper flesh too. Bam! That’s the goodness. Just the right heat for me. Really does justice to the fruitiness of the pepper. Can’t say I’d drink it a lot but I love it. dlovell2 (2137) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 30, 2015
Label says "hear May vary". Pours clear copper color with white head. Aroma is juicy citrus, tropical fruits, mango, pine, and that beautiful habanero pepper spiciness. Flavor is big juicy grapefruit, mango, and tropical fruits. Grapefruit and pine finish with habanero pepper spiciness. Substantial amount of heat. Peppery heat left lingering on tongue. This brew is the real deal. One of the few beers with spicy peppers that delivers. If you can’t handle spicy food you have no business trying this brew. obguthr (6355) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Strong grapefruit and tangerine nose, with a subtle pepper presence. Hazy amber, medium yellow head. Grapefruit, lemon, and a lot of pepper. Pine finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation, hot. Not quaffable, but a fantastic sipper. madelfonatree (317) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Look - Light orange see through body. Thin, white to tan head with moderate pour.
Smell - Don’t notice peppers here. Grapefruit and citrus. Dank.
Taste - Strong pepper up front and fades slowly. Has a plastic taste as well.
Palate - Dries up quickly with pepper. Lighter bodied.
Overall - Smell was surprising. I don’t know where the faint plastic smell comes from. Heat from a beer you expect heat.
