Draft at SB. Pours a clear pale yellow with plenty of carb and a nice loose white head. Bright sweet spicy red pepper notes on the nose; the ginger and lime are either a bit faded back or they are perfectly integrated as accents to the pepper note. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Bright and clear sweet spicy red pepper notes on the mid palate as well, over a nice mild biscuit base. Finish shows sweet spicy pepper as well--it gets a bit hotter and a bit hotter over time, but never burning or uncomfortable. Nicely done pepper beer.

Draft pour pint at Special Brews. Part of the brewers night. Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a full foam head. Huge pepper aroma, and according to every pepper beer Iíve ever had, I love pepper beers. I enjoy a beer that smells more like a plate of nachos than it does a beer. Hint of lime too. Great pepper flavor with a nice moderate heat that lingers. Lime comes in late too. Damn I love pepper beers. There arenít enough of us out there.

On Draught
Pours a pale yellow with a small head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is hot peppers and thatís about it... itís one noted, itís not offensive... itís inviting enough, but the peppers dominate the aroma here, Iím not even sure if blindfolded I would guess it was beer on aroma alone.

The flavor is a little bit gingery (of all things) itís got a nice fruitiness to it, itís not sweet but itís defiantly got some zesty citrus and maybe even light banana things happening. This seems to match well with the hot peppers which are the central flavor of the beer.

Itís actually sort of brilliant.

I don't know what to say. It's not awful, but it's not great. I'll never drink it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours cloudy golden with low white head. Aroma of lemongrass, citrus, lime, thai basil. Taste is fresh, ginger and chili that grows in the finish. Light, smooth body with average carbonation.

Sampled from the tap at ABR 2015. Pours a cloudy light yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of chili, light spice and grain with some grass backing. Flavor has an odd chili and lime combination with a decent amount of spice.

Draft at Ballast Point. Hazy golden color with a small white head. Nice Thai chile aroma with Belgian yeast notes and spice. The flavor is wheat yielding to Chile, ginger, and lime. Interesting. Light body with lively carbonation. Interesting beer.
