look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Bottle at 40 degrees into nonic
Aroma citrusy like orange
Head large (5 cm), off white, frothy, diminishing to a 1 cm ring and partial layer.
Lacing poor, rare thick stalagmite of tiny to small bubbles
Body medium yellow, slight haze
Flavor is basically hidden in the habanero heat, but that heat is not overpowering – no sweating, no tearing, no choking – just a medium heat. No hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, watery, soft carbonation

Appearance 4, Aroma 4, Flavor 3.75, Palate 3.75, Overall 4

I love sculpin. The habanero was very strong, killing anything that made sculpin nice. However, if i disregarded that it was a sculpin variation, it was a nice beer.
