Citrus, ginger, and chili aroma. Cloudy yellow apearance with frothy white foam. The taste is sweet up front but rounds out nicely with a mild spicy burn that hits you in the back of the throat.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a moderate white head. Nose is hugely peppery with some great spice to it - reminds me a bit of Ghost Face Killah. Taste is quite spicy and hot; still drinkable, but not for people who arenít a fan of spice.

On tap. Hazy yellow with a fizzy white head. Wheat, lime, and chili pepper aroma. Bright lively palate. Amazingly good lime, orange, and other sweet citrus flavors up front followed by a warming mild chili pepper and black pepper taste. Well balanced and damn good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Standard Market. I admit, I do like my chiles in my beers. Mix of spices in the nose. Hazy straw color. Taste brings on a light burn of chiles right at the start. Ginger is there, too. Canít quite catch anything resembling lime, except for a note that I usually find with lemonglass, so I guess thatís it. Keeps up a little burn at the back of my mouth, but once swallowed, thereís little after-taste.

Draft at ballast point wIth Linh. Pours a bright yellow golden body with nice haze and white creamy lacing. Aroma is muted wheat and lots of pepper, lime and spice. Mouthfeel is hot spicy pepper, lime, and a very light wheat that rounds out the spice quite well. Not as in your face as the Habanero Sculpin, but still a nice aggressive heat thatís tolerable and drinkable.

On tap at the Old Grove location. Light pale yellow with decent haze. Nose is yeast and lime and Ginger. Up front taste is high tart sweet. Lotsa lime and a good dose of Ginger. Clean and bright. High fresh chili pepper bite comes in late and stays to party after the beer is long gone. Not overpowering or off-putting, but obvious. Nice beer.

Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. 12 IBU. Pours dishwater gold with a creamy white head. Real firm chili aroma. Think sliced serrano. Med minus body. Flavor is mostly chili. Med hot with a lime hint. Chili builds and burns. Nice change of pace. If rating several, make this the last one!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ OíBrienís: Poured a glowing hazy yellow hue with a paper thin layer of head. The aroma was spicy and I was able to pick up a lot of the ginger as if it were the whole root shredded and diced into the beer while a faint background of lime leaf comes through as well. The flavor is intensely spicy with those spicy little red Thai chili peppers while also being punctuated with a squeeze of lemon and a taste of ginger. Wow did this stuff ever burn going down and while in my stomachówhat an experience!

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.
