This is an interesting brew. An India Pale Ale with habanero peppers added in the process. I thought it might have a subtle, peppery spiciness. HELL NO! This shit is 🔥 The blast of hotness overpowers all other flavors this brew possibly has to offer. An interesting conversation brew but too much for my liking.

Normal sculpin flavor with a hint of spice. Not too hot.

I enjoyed the habanero burn on the back end of the taste. It's a delayed burn, but not enough to ruin the flavor.

Not too hoppy ipa with medium heat!

Starts out with a spicy and peppery taste blended with a citrus flavor. After a few sips it heats up and you can really feel the pepper over everything.

Clear golden in color with a frothy lasting white head that slowly dissipates to a thin film. Aromas of sweet tropical fruits, like pineapple and some citrus & floral notes. Light to medium in body has a malt background and citrusy hop forward followed by an immediate burning pepper flavor that hangs around on your tongue. A dry bitterness as the heat seeps in. Not quite as balanced as other pepper beers I've had as the heat makes you want only one. The flavor of the habanero pepper goes very well with the hoppiness. This beer brings the heat!

Awesome when paired with Dante's Inferno (taco) at the Hoppy Gnome (Fort Wayne, IN). Get ready for some heat! profile - April 23, 2016
Spiciest beer I've found yet. Good IPA flavor and great spice to top it off. profile - April 16, 2016
Goes nicely with the Bloody Mary mix. Sip both together - good for the mornings.

Bad aftertaste. IPA is there with heat but a bad jelly bean taste after
