3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sampler at Bothell beer fest. Pours a thin gold with some good, green pepper spice aroma. Got this twice, good stuff. Getting all the flavor from the peppers, and less spice. Great pepper flavor. Good beer.

Very, very nice. The choice of base beer -- blonde -- was probably meant to accentuate the chiles, which it does nicely. I’m quite familiar with Green Hatch Chiles, and the flavor here is exactly that -- along with a dollop of welcome heat.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bomber - 10oz thinned Allagash glass - $5 at QFC supermarket.
In short this beer is full of pepper flavor and aroma but no heat. It’s really fun that way. The underneath beer is slight sweet biscuit malt. Very clean otherwise, the underneath malt is present but subdued. Fun beer, I’ll probably buy again.

Draught at the brewery
Hazy amber color. Nice dusty aroma of green peppers. It has the lean and lightly sweet malt base of the Blond Ale, with just light chile touch; a bit dusty in the final.

Draft at indigo. Pours a hazy burnished pale amber. Loose whitish head. Big sweet chile pepper nose, nice tangy hatch quality. Creamy medium body with moderate carb. Mild toasty nutty mid palate, subdued peppers. Soft finish.
