3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nothing subtle about this. Assertive habanero heat and fruitiness accompanied by bright citrus and tropical additions. Capsaicin is noticeable and builds as your drink it. Becomes distracting. I’m a sweaty dude already. This doesn’t help at all.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster from the Grille Next Door.
Deep golden color with a huge sticky white head. Big capsaicin mixed with earthy pine on the nose. The heat lingers coating the throat all the way down. Good in a small dose, glad I got a tiny glass.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the Ballast Point Miramar.
Clear golden colour with a small white head.
Very strong habanero in the aroma. The chili really dominates the aroma.
The flavour is malt and habanero.

It smells like a hoppy IPA with a hint of habanero, as expected. The initial flavor is the pepper, the burn is on the back of palate and through the finish. Almost of the verge of being too spicy for me, but just perfect on the burn. Not sure I'd drink a full pint.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
The spiciest beer you may ever drink. Smells, tastes, and lingers like a real habanero pepper.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle at Freshcraft. Darker gold and clear appearance with a lacy white head. Fresh aroma of citrus fruits, tropical fruits, floral notes and just a touch of peppery spice. The flavor is similar, but the habanero really comes through here, particularly on the finish. Pretty mild at first, but getting pretty intense towards the end. Still enjoyable and fun to drink, although, I couldn’t drink more than one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The perfect amount of heat, IMO. Hits the mouth cool and a little fruity but a little throat burn is noticeable from the first quaff. It doesn’t build up, though, so the last sip is still both refreshing and spicy. The pepper seems to cut or replace the hop bite so doesn’t seem all that hoppy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle pours hazy dark amber with a finger of head. Nose has soke vegetal spice, not much hops, some pepper. Taste is one dimensional with overpowering heat that borders on unpleasant, a hint of stale malt grain and herbal vegetal spice. Pretty much no hop fruitiness or citrus detected. Finishes with a burning hotness and no other real flavors. I love chili beers but this was rough. If you want to basically drink a chili peper than you might enjoy this novelty beer but it’s just that-a novelty. Not very good. Was struggling after a few ounces.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not sure what I expected. It’s a good beer that’s been overpowered by a good dose of heat. The heat is a good amount - bold as intended but not undrinkable. That being said, I wouldn’t want more than a few ounces of this stuff.
