On tap at VBGB in Charlotte. Looked nice, had a cool aroma of peppers and southwestern spices, but I could just not get into this one. The pepper taste was almost fake-tasting and was completely unappetizing. I couldn’t even finish it, actually - my fiancee really liked it, though, so maybe I’ll try it again sometime with a clean palate.

Growler pour of a nice clear gold with yellow edges and a bubbly white head. Big nose of pickled an fresh jalapeño. Taste sweet caramel malt that leads into a great jalapeño flavor that is fresh and not spicy with a earthy grassy hop finish. Light but slightly sticky mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a bitter grassy hop finish that stays on your tongue. Overall an easy drinking and intriguing beer for a hot day or anytime. It let's each flavor play it's part in succession. It easy enough to just sip but complex enough to keep you wanting more. I will defiantly be getting this again, at the brewery, with peanuts.

Good smell of jalapeño but not overpowering...taste is damn near perfect for the intent. Definitely give it a shot

First rating of 2014 Hickory Hops. Huzzah! At any rate, this is beer really tastes like jalapeno peppers. I like beers that taste like peppers, so it stands to reason that I would like this beer. I did, in fact, like this beer. Hot, but not overbearing. Tasty.

Not too spicy, flavor kinda flattens out after a while. Nice pale ale. The aroma was better than the actual jalapeño flavor.

A perfect pale ale with jalapeño flavor. Smells like roasted jalapeños and has a slight bite too.

Draft at the brewery: nice golden color with a small white head. Aromas are sweet, and vegetable notes. The jalepeño is hidden very well in the flavor, you notice it when you look for it,but it doesn’t smack you in the face like a lot of pepper beers do. Enjoyed this a lot, but it wasn’t what I was expecting.

On tap at Birdsong. Pours a golden color with white head. Hoppy, peppery aromas. Fresh jalapeno dominates the flavor. Pretty tasty!

On tap @ Birdsong with jcnielsen. Pours a touch hazy golden appearance with an off white head. Quite a bit of spicy peppers in the nose. Some vegetal notes as well. A touch of creamed corn. Flavor again kind of has a corn tortilla thing going on. Peppers come through nicely in terms of moderate heat but just to before forward for my palate.

A great brew! Not an overpowering jalapeño taste, but very tasty! One of my favorites from Birdsong. A very light appearance with aromas of jalapeños.
