COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fire Escape is the Escape Artist ESP that is brewed with roasted jalapeno peppers. It is the most popular beer infusion that we had ever done, so we decided to start brewing it!! Give it a try next time you are in one of the locations.... you will ♥ it!!

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

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, it’s a good thing. But not for everyone. (#4295, 10/5/2011)

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.

ben4321 (5641) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2015
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
Overall Impression: This is a pretty decent pepper spice beer. I can’t complain too much, because they did a nice job with this one.

Cybercat (5045) - Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2014
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?

Sampled at GABF 2013. Orange appearance with a beige head. Spicy jalapeño pepper aroma. Similar flavor with light malts and spices.

Tap. Orange color. Whoa, jalepaño! Tastes of eating a fresh jalepaño. That is all. (3614)

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.
