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!!

SpringsLicker (3251) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Brewgrass 2012 The version I sampled was run through a Cilantro & Lime mini-Randall. The aroma was fresh cilantro. The flavor was like a mouth full of beer and salsa. The Jalapenos kick in as a subtle yet firm burn on the tongue that kicks in about the third swallow. I think I would prefer the unfiltered version and would rate it accordingly better.

jandd1983 (3160) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Sampler at the brewpub. It poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, jalapenos and caramel. The taste was of jalapenos, lemons and some maltiness. Interesting.

NachlamSie (2970) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Pint at thirsty Monk. Pours a hazy orange. Pretty decent peppery aroma with metallic notes and caramel. The jalapeno flavor is pretty nice with a reasonable strength. A plasticity I associate with some chipotle products turns up, but there’s plenty of good pepper flavor to mask it. Finish has a little drowsiness to it. Pretty good.

Shag (2684) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Amber color with a white head. Aroma contains some citrus, peppers, and caramel. The flavor has some herbal notes with some jalapenos and lemons. An interesting beer to wash these 5 alarm freakin chicken fingers. Oooooph son.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2012
On tap at Thirsty Monk in Asheville. Pours slightly hazy golden with a white head. Nose shows mild hop presence, some burnt jalapeño and wet dog. Taste is nicely balanced, with more flavor than heat from the peppers but I nice slight kick at the end.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2015 On tap at the Creekside Tavern, this pours a light amber into the glass, with a decent soapy head that leaves spotty lacing. The nose is spot on for jalapeño peppers, caramel and some sweet vegetal notes. Flavors are of caramel, biscuit flour and pepper skins with floral hops, light vanilla and a nice dose of capsaicin to finish the pull. The mouthfeel, once past the heat (which isn’t nearly the hottest brew I’ve ever had, but those sensitive to spice might find a little warm), is medium-bodied and softly carbonated. Definitely lively to the palate. A very interesting jalapeño take on their traditional "Escape Artist" pale ale. Honestly, it’s definitely become a guilty pleasure for me, as I quite like this jalapeño brewed version. (This, of course, comes from a fan of spicy foods.)

changeup45 (1719) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2012 Draft. This is their Escape Artist with jalapeños added. It certainly smells spicy and peppery; what you would expect from a jalapeño beer. It’s not as spicy and peppery in the flavor; toned down from the aroma but there’s still some jalapeño heat. Caramel mingles in. Interesting beer.

ramboraffe (1256) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2014
On tap at brewpub. Amber with white head. Smell is light malty with jalapenos. Taste is warming hot jalapenos and caramel malty and floral hops. Crazy but balanced with the hot jalapenos.

magsinva (965) - Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Tap at APBC - pours a slight cloudy orange. Aroma is jalapeño and that’s it because it is so overpowering. Taste is the spicy burn of jalapeño and that has blown my tastebuds. I’m not getting anything else, so I’d deffinately save this one note beer to last.

GnarlyGnome (798) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Draft, sampler: aroma is roasted peppers, smells like tasty food. The flavor is more roasty smokiness than heat, but the heat is there a little bit as well. THE BEST pepper beer I have ever had. Tasty,tasty stuff.
