snoworsummer (4808) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 24, 2015
Draft at the brewery. Pours clear pale gold with a fizzy white head. Smells like spicy pepper, green vegetable, some corn, and bready malt. Light body and low carbonation. Tastes like very spicy pepper, corn, and Brady malt.

Tap at brewery . Pours light orange with white head. Aroma is strong chili, pretty much straight hot peppers, great chili aromatics. Taste is very spicy, lots of hot pepper...overall, a bit much-a couple sips and that’s all y’all need.

ajnepple (5216) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2013
22 oz bomber from the brewery. Gold and clear appearance with a quickly dissipating white head. The aroma and flavor is hot and spicy peppers. Pretty intense, I’m glad I was able to share this because I probably couldn’t have finished it on my own. The body was light to medium with a lingering hot and spicy finish. Hot damn!

Tap @ Bootstrap. Pours a clear golden yellow appearance with a small white head. Spicy chili pepper, slight veggie/celery aroma. Pretty high burning spiciness and after taste with notes of chili pepper and dry grains.

onceblind (7480) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Slightly hazy golden with a firm aroma of roasted green chilies and cedar. Taste is pretty dang spicy for a beer, reminiscent of Twisted Pine’s Ghost Face Killah. Firm vegetal pepper/jalapeńo flavor with some real heat to it. Nice pale malty sweetness with a touch of honey under all that capsaicin, making for a balanced, albeit slightly too-spicy brew.

On tap at Bootstrap poured a hazy gold with a small lasting white head. Aromas of biscuit and green chilies. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a warming finish. Flavors of biscuit, green chilies and light carmel with a crisp warming lingering chilie finish.
