2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cask at GBBF 2011. It pours golden yellow, with a thin white head. The nose is habanero chili pepper, pine and sweet resin. The taste is like chomping down on a habanero. Lots of pepper warmth that make eyes water. This is a one dimensional beer dominated by one flavour. Interesting nonetheless. Enjoyable to watch unsuspecting people taste this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. Dark amber color with a medium white head that disappears quickly, and short strings of lace. Peppers and hops in the nose. Medium body with a moderately spicy pepper flavor with some hops and malt behind it. Lingering spicy aftertaste. Decent beer, although I drank this too early in the session and had to flush with a lot of water immediately after due to the spiciness. Decent overall.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On at Capone’s. Poured a golden color with a white head. Yep, there’s habanero in this one. The hoppy IPA was in the background, but this one ended in too much of a spicy burn for me to finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
GABF. Pours a hazy orange appearance with an off white head. Citrusy, grapefruity, a bit piney, slightly peppery aroma. Juicy citrusy, rich grapefruity flavor that shows more of the pepper with a moderate burn on the finish. Honestly, this sounded like the greatest thing since sliced bread to me but the spiciness was a bit dull and didn’t add what I thought it could. I would love to try it again someday, however.
