Draft. Pours amber orange with a white head. Light chili aroma with some pale malts. The flavor has good jalapeno flavor with not a ton of heat, with a plain pale malty base. Solid.

A nice easy drinking pale ale with a wonderful jalapeno flavor. Would be interesting to taste the ale w/o the spice. Flavors work excellent together. Guess I expected this to fail, but turned out nice. Enjoyability 5/5.

I had this one on draft at the Pizza location, and I loved every sip. It was the first beer I tried on my trip to Asheville, and I immediately knew itíd be the one Iíd take home in a growler. The pepper is present throughout the taste, with a lingering on the palate minutes after drinking, and it is unlike any other pepper beer I have tried. This is a new favorite of mine and one I wonít soon forget!

I think chile peppers are an underused ingredient in beer. More, please, I say! Anyway, this one smelled like jalapeno pepper and caramel. Flavor was also jalapeno and caramel at first, but eventually the pepper overtakes everything. Sure, this may be a novelty, but I liked it.

Hazed orange pour with frothy off white head and lace. Nose completely dominates the nose. Musty jalapeno flavor that heats up some bitter on the finish but mostly hot. Thin body with light carbonation. A beer I like Iím sure more than most people.

Draft at the brewpub on Coxe. Wow ... this is an aptly named brew. The pepper jumps out at you instantly and sticks with you. Quite spicy, but the pepper is also well-woven into a solid pale ale. If this is your thing, itís a good thing. But not for everyone. (#4295, 10/5/2011)

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Draft. Golden color, small white head. Aroma has peppers. The peppers sneak up on you in the taste fairly quickly, then keeps building. Nice bite to this one.

You can smell the jalapenos right away. Once you taste it, the pale ale hits you first and then the jalapenos. It gets spicier over time. Jalapenos overwhelm the hops. This is a beer you donít want to drink without some food. Goes nice with spicy food. Pretty good beer, donít know if I would have it again but Iím glad I tried it.

Tap at APBC - pours a slight cloudy orange. Aroma is jalapeŮo and thatís it because it is so overpowering. Taste is the spicy burn of jalapeŮo and that has blown my tastebuds. Iím not getting anything else, so Iíd deffinately save this one note beer to last.
