At a tasting, thanks Tom L, big bubbly but quickly dissapearing head, lively carbonation, dirty honey yellow color, aroma of honey with hints of wood and bread, grainy flavor with hints of chillie, very light bitterness. Not too good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very interesting beer, another great experiment from dogfishhead. Pours a deep orange with lots and lots of sediment hanging out. Smells of honey, peaches, chilis and grape blowpop. Taste is very thick, like a meal, with Apple blowpop or jolly rancher, honey, peach and a chili spiciness in the finish. Reminds us of the old bubble tea like soda, Orbitz. Had in the bottle.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy orange amber with one-finger head that reduces steadily without completely disappearing, nice lacing.
The nose lives up to the description, with a strong aroma of honey, cocoa and chili heat.
In the glass, there are sweet malts with a trace of fruitiness, mild cocoa bitterness and a spice note from the achiote, along with a kick of pepper at the end. Its medium bodied and slick, yet still creamy. The heat might be attributed to chilies as much as the 9 percent ABV; it feels right for the concept.
When they are not over-hopping pale ales, Sam Calagone and crew are among the more inventive palates in the business. Not everything they try works. This is one that does.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle from Niagara Falls Wegmans. Pours a cloudy dull orange colour with lots of small floaties and a modest-sized white head. Aroma is honey, light cocoa, chili pepper and fruit. Flavour is quite strongly of honey with some chili heat underneath, subtle cocoa notes and a bit of fruitiness. Slick mouthfeel. Medium plus body. Alcohol is rather subtle for the ABV. Quite interesting.

Bottle. Hazy copper color. Some head and bubbles. Slightly spicy nose. Tastes of yeast tempered by super slight chili quality and even more mild chocolate notes. Not bad.
