2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I look hot food and hoppy beers, including regular sculpin, but this not for me. maybe next time i make chili. I want to say far-like smell but that’s not precise, maybe a combo of natural gas and seaweed, but not overpowering, with some sugar. It IS hot, which quickly blocks out other flavors--swamp, alcohol and what toast. nice touch to list the range of scoville units. solid yellow with thinnish white head. can you have heat and still have a decent beer?

Draft at Misconduct. Hazy orange amber with solid white foam. Nice lace. Looks innocent enough. Tastes like the devil. The habanero is not shy! Blankets the sky! Napalm back to front. Oh the humanity! As harsh (and as good) a hot spicy beer as I have ever had. Prepare for tears!!!

Bottle from Wine warehouse. Pours golden amber with Ace somewhat decent frothy beige head. Smells of citrus and light vegetation, I suppose that could be the pepper but it doesn't necessarily smell like pepper. Taste. Oh that made me catch my breath. Initial puckering followed by a deep breath and A lot of heat going down the throat. I am not a huge fan of spicy food because I like to taste the separate flavors in the my food and it's similar with this beer, but this is quite enjoyable in a completely different way.main flavor is the pepper, spicy, but there's also a hint of citrus peel that is mostly overshadowed by the heat of the pepper.

Provided a nice balance between the warmth from the habanero and the crispness of a good IPA.

Very nice aroma. Habaneros up front with nice citrusike hops in the background. The flavor is ultimately dominated by the heat which lingers. Gimmicky beer. It works but the heat is a little too strong for me to give this a high rating. I can’t imagine drinking more than one of these

Bottle from Beer and Wine. Golden body. Nose is hoppy, spicy and some citrus. Taste is again very hoppy with citrus and spicier notes in the middle. Nice texture. Floral finish.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden thin off white head. Very nice citrus aroma dominates. Medium sweet taste. Medium-light body, smooth texture, spicy finish that burns the roof of my mouth and throat. Punishing yet intriguing.

Ahh, this is a smell I like. Reminds me of that south african chili mead I loved to sniff so much, the pepper here has a nice floral and spicy kick and blends well with the herbal citrus hops. Flavor is definitely a challenge, as this tastes like an IPA down deep but that’s a lot of serious chili heat dominating front to back. Fun and one of the better built chili beers, but in the end I can’t see this as much more than a one time try, a novelty, and it can’t score highly because of it.
