Clear golden pour, very little head. Nose is earthy with sweet grains - actually smells spicy. Just about knocked my head off in one sip - decent flavor but mostly just heat.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Golden pour with a white head. Smells hot, almost singes the nose. Nothing else really comes through on the nose. Maybe just a little bit of grainy sweetness. The flavor is absolutely brutal. I like spicy stuff, but this is ridiculous. I could barely choke down a couple small sips. Just a very light grain sweetness.

Clear copper color. Aroma is surprisingly faint, chili and grain, nothing too out of the ordinary. Taste is... hot. Not outlandish in the big scheme of things but very hot for a beer. Still, the heat does not overpower the essential grainy beerness of the style and, for that, I am quite impressed. Well worth a taste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2012 Tap. According to the brewer it is their most commonly ordered sampler - usually for somebody else :). Pours clear light amber with a medium white head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is chili pepper and a grain/malt background. Flavor is dominated by spicy chili. I believe the hottest beer in the world claim. There are notes of grain and mildly sweet malt in the background, but they are buried under the chili bite. This one amuses me.

Pours hazy golden with a small head. Aroma strong chili, like sniffing capaicine. Burning strong chili taste. Strongest chilibeer in a while.. Not Bad.

Bottle - Smells and looks like a pale ale. No hints of chili on the nose, but when you taste it wow. All heat, but no flavour. Interesting but make sure you share a bottle and keep a glass of water handy.

Draft to small goblet
Sour yeasty aroma and it pours to a cloudy golden colour. "It tastes like burning."

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden, and aroma is like honey and strawberry. Taste is palate-killing heat with a sweet fruity edge, but drink this way last if you want to taste anything else. $4/3oz

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Apex with mcberko, pours a clear golden yellow / orange with no head. Aroma of jalapenos, chillis, soapy and floral notes. Flavour of aniseed, chilli, soap, floral notes and feet. Way too spicy for my taste, but nice gimmick. Leaves a continual burning sensation like a good curry - that doesnít subside. Mouthwatering. Not for the faint-hearted. Barely drinkable but I like the concept.

On tap at Apex in Portland, split with Matts_Property, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of hot, hot chilis / jalapenos - not much else. I was not prepared for what came next. Flavour is massively intense with hot, hot, hot, hot chilis / jalapenos. Donít have much more than a small sip of this if you want to retain your taste buds! Quite the experience for sure.
