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 was really surprised by this beer. The nose has elements of caramel and brown sugar in it with a nice backing of roasted jalapeno. Brown with a very small head. Sweet in the front, bitter in the middle, and spicy in the end. The heat is not overwhelming, but plays a subtle partner to the beerís malt profile. Medium bodied with a spicy warming finish. Went great with carnitas and grilled corn.

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.

Draft. Pours hazy golden color thin lacing. Aroma of floral, pine, and jalapenos. Medium sweet flavor from the malt, finishes spicy. The spice level is a bit delayed but grows with each sip. Despite the spice, after each sip Iím craving more. One of the most unique beers Iíve had, and I found it to be particularly well done.

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.

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.

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 thereís plenty of good pepper flavor to mask it. Finish has a little drowsiness to it. Pretty good.

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.

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.
