3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a very slightly hazy golden orange with thin white head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells of mild yeast and pepper spice. Tastes like it smells with a smooth but pleasantly peppery mouthfeel. Better than I expected.

Savor 2014 - As a lover of nachos, I canít be near a beer with nacho in the title and not try it. Interesting beer, habanero definitely present but not killer like Stoneís spicy offerings.

2 ounce draft pour at SAVORís Friday night session. Poured a dark golden color with off-white head. Aroma was light citrus notes, wheat, and a little bit of some funky spice. Flavor was about the same - but with a pleasant pepper burn to it. Quite enjoyable.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy golden yellow with hardly any head. Decent carbonation. Aroma of crackery, bready malt and peppers. Flavor of sweet bready malt, floral notes with a spicy habanero kick. Both malty blonde notes and habanero are present. It is spicy for sure, but not overpowering, lingers in your mouth a little bit. There is plenty of heat, but not so much pepper, so while I enjoyed it, I have found other pepper beers a little more flavorful.

6oz pour at Smoke and Barrel. Pours a clear orange with some swirling white head. Nose smells fruity, some scorched pepper skins, some apple, a little peach, some pink peppercorn. Flavors of mild malt, mild white pepper, peach, a little sweet melon. Heat flicks over the tongue at the end. Mostly clean finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taster on tap at Party Town. Golden color. Good thin off-white head. Leaves thicker lace. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Bready flavor, and big habanero kick. It;s not painful, though, not extreme nor overdone. A notch below habanero sculpin, for example. Some black pepper. Moderate sweet, peppery taste. Nice tasty interesting stuff.

Draft. Lactic barley malt aroma. Hazy pale yellow with small head. Sweet barley malt quickly overwhelmed by habanero burn - strong but not over the top.
