Had this on my birthday in November along with the Habanero Sculpin. I was really excited by the idea of this one because Ghost Peppers are the hottest peppers in the world.

A: Pours the same golden/amber color as regular Sculpin.

S: Didn't smell hot at all. When I smelled the habanero one, I got a big whiff of heat. This one just smelled like Sculpin (not that that's a bad thing).

T: The taste starts just like Sculpin. Nice mango, pineapple and pine hops. So far so good. Then, it takes a strange turn and starts to get that metallic/dirty taste that really hot peppers get right before they knock you to the floor with a blast of heat. But the heat never came. They didn't use nearly enough of the pepper to really let it do its thing. Kind of a wasted opportunity.
