2.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Left work early when @ChurchkeyDC tweeted they were tapping this. Four ounce draft in a snifter @ChurhkeyDC. Crisp, clean apperance. Light head. Wine-like nose; oddly reminded me of smelling chardonnay. Front end is boozy; rides right up into your nose. Very fruity beer. You can taste mango, but barely. Finishes with a nice heat. Disappointing beer; and Iím a huge Founders fan!

Nice golden color. Taste is obviously mango and lots of habanero. Too much habanero to enjoy for a whole glass.

Bomber. Clear light gold. No head. Sweet fruit aroma. Slight mango flavor overwhelmed by pepper. Not big on fruit beers so this was kind of meh for me.

It poured a clear golden orange color with a thin white head. The aroma was of spiciness, mango, pineapple and some tropical fruits. The taste was tangy sweet mango, peaches, pineapple flavor with some nice pepper spiciness on the finish. Not sure what I expected.

Pours clear burnt orange color with off white head. Aromas of tropical fruits and caramel. Sweet mango and caramel flavors with heat coming through as it goes down. Medium body with average carbonation. Decent and interesting, but could only drink a few ounces at a time.

Barcade, Brooklyn tap ($8): Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma is really fruity with mango and peach being up there. Taste is mango, peach, some hops at the front, with a habanero burn later on. The burn isnít as strong as Ghost Face Killa or something like that. Even my girlfriend who hates spicy food was able to drink this. Unique for sure. I would be terrified to see brewers not as skilled as those at Founders give this style a go.

Light frothy head, dark straw colour, far too spicy to be anything I would want more than a sip of.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a bright orange color with a big white head. The aroma is, not surprisingly, fruity, with mango and tropical fruit coming through strong. There is a tinge of heat on the nose, but not as much of the habanero fruit. On the palate, the flavor opens up fruity but its countered by a solid citrus hop presence, and then completely cut by a dry heat on the back of the palate to finish. Fairly well balanced, but a whole bomber ends up being like a lot of this beer. Tasty, but not something youíd want to revisit over and over unless you had some bizarre fetish for spicy beer.
