3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
25 July 2013, bottle. Light yellow and faintly cloudy. Nose is green peppers and faint heat. Thin body and faintly fizzy. Definitely some serious hot peppers here, but it doesn't really burn or linger too long. Apricot comes out a bit. Peppers go to the back of the throat.

Hazy yellow pour with a short lived white head. Aroma is apricots, but only slightly. Flavor is mildly sweet with a slightly aggressive bit of heat on the back end. Interesting combo but a little thin.

Very unique beer, but slightly flawed. Pours a great cloudy yellow-brown. Smells like pepper. Taste is extremely peppery. Slight apricot in the finish, but the pepper overtakes everything. Makes it hard to taste anything else. A nice warmth on the finish though. Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rating from 6/10/13. Bomber with a sexy label. Pours hazy cantaloupe with a medium white soapy head with excellent retention. Aroma is nice and peppery--apricots do come through as it warms up. Taste starts out lightly sweet before intense heat comes in and obliterates everything. Leaves the lips burning and sweat droplets form on the face. Tartness from the apricots comes out after it warms up. Mouthfeel is a little foamy, maybe a tad thin, feels gritty, not to the detriment of my overall impression. The label downplayed the heat in this. "Slight spiciness," my ass! I love spicy beers, though, and this is the shit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2013 Apricot and wheat aroma. Pepper hit is signifigant, and lasts through the finish. The pepper makes a good fruit beer very unique. I think many might feel it is too hot, but I like.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy golden pour with a white head. Interesting aroma. Really pronounced apricot and almost honey like sweetness up front. Spicy chile peppers, grass, and some herbs. The flavor is mildly spicy, but not terribly sweet. Minimal apricot character. Chile pepper, grass, green bell pepper, and very high carbonation leading to an acidic feel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
222. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a dense and creamy white head that sticks around. Bright peppery nose with some sweetness, but really hard to pick out any other ingredients in the aromatics here. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Sharply burning habanero dominates the mid palate, not overwhelming, but strong, and has no company. Hot finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I feel like this is very underrated. Nose of wheat, fruity apricot, touch citrus, medium vegetal pepper notes. Pours cloudy orange yellow white head. Flavors of fresh fruity apricot up front wheat malt in the mid palate more fruity sweetness w a slow developing back of the mouth pepper dry "heat". Not spicy per se but there is definitely pepper flavor. Nice carbonation smooth but light body fairly quenching and unique really a great spice herb vegetable beer. Should be rated higher.
