3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Safeway in Redwood City, CA. Had low expectations since I didn’t enjoy the Habanero Sculpin. Much better than expected! Aroma is ginger, galanga, Tom Yum Soup. Taste is spicy but dissipates quickly. Could have used a touch more lime / lemongrass. An excellent Thai Soup of a beer.

Keg @ Örebro Ölcafe. Hazy straw golden, short lasting head, disappearing quickly and completely. Thai food aroma, coriander, chili, ginger and even glass nudes. Living up to its name. A big chili punch in the face, really hot with chili, lime and coriander. The liquid is soft and smooth but the taste really burns. Cooking with it yes, drinking more of it, not for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks exactly like apple juice. Exactly. Same color, juicy appearance, no head.
Aroma is a mild wheaty base,quickly followed by a very strong habanero component that wafts up into the upper nostril. Like the back of the nasal cavity. Some grass clippings. Strong but very interesting.
Flavor is the strong burn of jalapenos and habanero. There is just a touch of some lemony witbier business at the end to cushion the blow. Still, it’s no joke.
The feel is very buttery and oily. There is a very strong burn that sticks on the palate. Like most of its ilk, it is good for a small sample one-off. Anything more would be tongue-punishment.

Pours hazy golden yellow with almost no fizz. Smells of citrus and spice. Taste is sweet, citrus, spice. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Ballast Point Thai Chili Wahoo finishes with a lingering spiciness.

Aroma of chili assaults the nose. Difficult to smell anything else, although on subsequent sniffs I believe I can detect a hint of lime. Pours a hazy lemon yellow. Very spicy. It is burning the back of my mouth. No doubting this is a chili beer. Not very complex. Cannot taste either the lime or the ginger. The body is light. Carbonation is average. Overall, not a bad beer for a hot day.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
651 ml. bottle. Pours a thin, poorly retained, off white head, with no lacing, over a hazy yellow (SRM 3) body.........nose is moderate Thai chili, light lemon, stronger lime, minimal malts and hops, balance to the adjuncts.......taste is slightly sweet with light wheat, mild lemon/lime, and heavy Thai chili, light ginger, mild malts and hops, with very heavy long lingering chili heat......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. The base beer is very light and utterly dominated by the chili, with the ginger and lime making lighter contributions. The base beer could use a rework. BJCP 6/2/12/4/6

On tap at Örebro Ölcafé. Spicy smell with chili. It really smells thai, like a thai curry. Similar taste. Very spicy and hot with a strong afterburn. Nice in small amounts, a bit too hot for me though.
