Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Sculpin IPA with Habanero Pepper began as a crazy experiment that’s taken on a life of its own. While its bright fruit notes and hoppy bite has made the original one of our favorites, this version takes that balance of flavors to the next level with the citrusy, floral heat of habaneros. Sculpin are known to sting, but this one’s got a kick.

Completely unnecessary addition to a great line of beers. Don't like this.

Definitely spicy, probably a bit too spicy. It's almost like drinking habanero juice.

Gross. Just gross. I don't even remotely like it, but I love the amount of heat it had.

As a heat lover, this was completely undrinkable for me. Couldn't take more than a few sips from it, the aftertaste is too strong. It just doesn't work.. I still can't understand how did this go into production.
