Pours a clear gold with little head. Aroma of chillis melds into slightly bready notes. Similar taste, with very mild chili flavors -- just enough to announce their presence -- quickly dissipating into a crisp, slightly bitter golden ale. Crisp, dry finish with very little residual heat.

Clear hay hue with a thin ring of foam. Large jalapeño and Anaheim pepper nose. The flavor is quite green with no spice. Just green earthy pepper and bland blonde malt.

This is a surprisingly good chili beer. It brings the heat but it isn’t overwhelming and there is a solid beer beneath it. Tried at the brewery with the parents in 2013.

Draft at Coopersmith’s. pours light orang with some yellow. Aroma is big chili spice with a little spicy hops. Taste is chili spice that burns in a good way. Has that same raunchy note from dirty lines; can’t get past it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub, I had a five ounce glass of this which was plenty. Golden yellow with a couple bubbles on top. The smell was really good, all peppers, reminded me of sniffing nachos covered in jalapeños. The taste was mostly peppers with some heat to it. I thought this was well executed for a chile pepper beer but I still couldn’t see myself drinking a whole pint of this.
Serving type: on-tap
