Tap @ Toronado San Diego... Poured hazy, pale yellow with a very thin head. This hit the spot as for a pepper spiced beer. Lots of pepper flavor with balancing citrus and spices. Warming pepper spice coming through more and more with each sip. Some malt sweetness and wheated tones for balance. But this was a beast of a pepper beer.

Pint at Tylers Apex. Good aroma, sweet. Heat in the scent. Stronger on the chili scent, not as much ginger. Pale golden yellow color, ok head and lace. Sweet hot flavor. Light body, smooth mouthfeel. Hot finish. Tasty , rephreshing with heat. Could use this in the warmer months.

A hazed blonde wit with a thin white head. In aroma, nice smooth hopped wit with ginger, nice. In mouth, a light watery wit with faint ginger, so-so. On tap at Iron Monkey, Dec. 31 2012.

On tap. Pours with a hazed golden-yellow hued body with a white head. Aromas are floral, flagrant, citrusy, spicy, ginger, phenolic, grainy and black pepper. Flavors are ginger and ginger burn, light lime, grainy/bready wheat, peppery burn. Completely dominated by spice, but not that bad tasting. Lively bubbles, dry and spicy finish.

I usually don’t like these types of things, but this one was different. POured a cloudy golden color with a white head. Aroma was of lots of lime, light yeast and wheat notes, and mild chili/pepper character. Flavor was very balanced, with very light heat, nice spritzy character from the lime and what seems to be chamomile with being zesty and refreshing. Me like.

On tap at ballast old grove from a taster. Color is hazy golden yellow with white head. Aroma is fruity with hints of chili peppers. Taste is fruity, then citrus (limes) with anice finish of faint chili. Better than regular version. Nice twist.

Cloudy yellow pour from a growler. Aroma hits with everything youd expect. Lots of ginger and lime, background of chilli and wheaty notes. Flavor is full and rich. tons of spice, lots of lime, light heat from the chili. And boy oh boy did this pair well with an asian noodle dish we had with it. Yes.

Tap. Pours hazy yellow with a very small white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is wheat, chili peppers, a bit of smoke, and ginger. Flavor is about the same, with the lime coming through in the flavor but not in the nose for me. Medium sweet with just a touch of spice at first, slowly building to what I would call mildly spicy by the end of the sample glass. Medium body and quite interesting, with a lot of balanced flavors and just a bit of kick.

Tap at Ballast Point. The beer pours to a murky yellow body. Aroma of ginger, lime, and wheat. It had a nice wheaty flavor with a subtle ginger and lime. Light heat. Like a tom kha gai soup.
