On tap at Ridgewood Wine and Beer in Raleigh.
Poured into fluted goblet with no head and no lace. Amber gold color.
Nose hints at the pepper, but get some of the standard Sculpin fruit and pine.
And then the fun begins. This is nothing but pepper, from start to finish. Hits hot, finishes hotter. All pepper with very little else. Really no indication that this is a Sculpin. While that's not all bad, it would be much better to tone the peppers down ... a lot.
Feel has some of the oily resin from the hops, but after the first couple of sips all you "feel" is fire. And I like spice in my food.
Good to try, but one and done.
