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 I’m sure more than most people.

Draught at Plant. Malty and a bit chewy. Caramel throughout. Then the presence of jalapeño pepper.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at Asheville Pizza and Brewing Company (Merrimon Ave), 1/3/15
Aroma: This beer has a light hop nose, with some fairly strong pepper notes to it
Appearance: It pours an orange color, with an off white head and some coating lace
Flavor: The flavor is more pepper forward over the light, clean hops
Palate: It has a pretty smooth feel, with a medium body, and a pepper spice finish
This is a pretty decent pepper spice beer. I can’t complain too much, because they did a nice job with this one.

Pours a slightly hazy amber with a pale buff head. Malty aroma has a hot pepper hint. Flavor is malty and peppery - maybe a little too peppery, but still potable. Texture is smooth and, well, peppery. Can you escape this fire?

Tap. Orange color. Whoa, jalepaño! Tastes of eating a fresh jalepaño. That is all.

Pours amber with fairly little head. You really get the jalapenos at the end of the beer - there’s a very spicy aftertaste. However, I found that there was relatively little flavor elsewhere in the beer.

This is basically the escape artist with jalapenos thrown in. Pouring a light orange from tap the jalapenos dominate everything. I happen to like jalapenos but the taste is a bit one note. This stuff lingers for hours so make sure it’s the last thing you drink for the night.
