4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sweet mouth feel with a definite jalapeño burn in the throat. A great novelty beer or for those who want to feel the burn.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at dragonmead. Ring of fire. Cloudy orange with small white head. Aroma of sweet pepper and hot pepper. Kind of like a salsa drenched nachos. Flavor is very similar. Mostly red pepper with spices all around. quite good and an easy drinker. 747314

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at GTMW - Pours light yellow with a creamy white head. Nose is peppery, with light malt. Hot pepper, but not overly so, makes for a bit of a chocolate taste. Wow--really peppery in the taste. Too much that it overwhelms the cream ale. All I can get is a bit of corny malt. Light bodied and real carbonated. Not the best execution, but interesting.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Dragonmead. Pale golden pour with a touch of haze. The nose has a kiss of light peppery spice. Fairly sweet pale malt on the back. Not as much spice on the flavour as is suggested in the nose. It’s okay, but kind of a one-trick pony.

draft... really impressed with this beer despite being able to only drink a few ounces, its hot but not so hot you can’t drink it, the flavor of a jalapeno dominate more than anything but its comes across really crisp and fresh... must try if you like peppers or spicy beers

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft - Fresh green chilli spice. Clearish gold with a decent white head. Green chilli peppers and a nice manageable heat. Not bad, quite flavorful.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lots of heat... good specialty beer. I didn’t expect the heat ... typically these have more aroma, but the taste doesn’t follow-- this one differs. Nice job to carry the flavors through.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Dragonmead - hazy yellow pour, thin white head. Arouma is chillies, light caramel and sweet. Light piney hops, lots of chilli heat. Spicey, habenaro and spicey... but the heat is not well integrated into the body of the beer. Good execution in general on a difficult style. They don’t do much else this well.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The Aroma was of Jalapeño, and it seemed to get better every time I went back to this beer. Not surprisingly, it went well nachos and cheese. The beer itself wasn’t very strong, but the subtle pepper after taste was enjoyable. I would have preferred for it to be spicier, but I’m a pepper-head who loves the feeling his face being burnt off.
