2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft at RnH with Linh. Pours an amber body with light haze and some lacing. Aroma is spiced hops and pine. Mouthfeel is normal sculpin until the Habanero smacks you in the face - the chili pepper flavor here dominates the flavor and is incredible in precision of taste. I wish I could rate this higher for creativity and execution, but when it boils down to it - itís just too damn hot. It literally tastes like someone rufied my drinks with drops of habanero sauce. Holy shit!

Cask at the GBBF 2011. Golden with a small white head. The aroma has lots green pepper and a bit of grass. The flavour is insanely hot, but actually has some interesting complexity - just too bad you canít taste it

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Gold pour. Small white head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine. Taste of grapefruit, pine, and habanero. What stood out about this beer is that it burns the lips and has a spicy aftertaste. The burn is nowhere near that of a real habanero. Iíd say it is at the level of tabasco sauce. This beer would go good with chicken tacos.

Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is hops and malt and citrus with no hint of habanero. Up front sculpin is its aweslme self.and.then the burn comes. A perfect well integrated not too over.the.top burn. I donít understand the bad ratings this beer is awesome.

GBBF Cask. Hazy gold beer, suddy white head. Light hoppy nose that doesnít give too much away. Mild citrus hops start and then the chilli starts and then it builds. After that it ramps up. Then it gets hotter. You get the idea! Very very hot and frankly undrinkable!

Tap at Blind Tiger. Clear golden pour. Very hoppy with citrus and pine. Nice spicey pepper, burn on the tongue. Light caramel and sweet, some dryness. Nice.

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at GBBG, Day 1. This was an incredibly divisive beer. Pours clear gold with a bubbly, white head. Big hop nose with definite notes of habanero. Flavor is just WAY too hot with raw habanero peppers. I canít really detect much else in the flavor as MY TONGUE IS ON FIRE. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Burns like hell on the finish without stopping. Minutes pass and yet the burn lingers. Canít really tell if hops are there, but Iím inclined to say theyíve been burned off. I could barely finish a third of a pint of this. When I did finish, I was sweating profusely and I considered leaving the festival to visit a hospital. Definitely too hot overall.
