Sample at GABF 10/04/2014, thanks to my BIL for assistance with note-taking. Pale orange color with a medium off-white head that diminishes quickly. Short strings of lace. Aroma of tropical fruit, hops and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of piney hops, melon and malt. Subtle peppers in the background. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Solid beer all around.

On draft at Proper Brick Oven and Tap Room. Poured hazy burnt orange. Slight lacing. Starts with some citrus up front that is quickly dominated by heat from the habanero. Intense heat. Shocking, really. Burns the palate. Became smoother as the palate adapted but heat still prevalent. Couldn’t drink more than one of these.

The spice hits lasts. It’s a great beer. Mango scent is great and you taste it first. Would be so great with a sharp parmigiana cheese. You would never believe it is 11abv

alobar (2885) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Pours slight orange yellow with aroma of pepper and some tropical fruit. Hint of tropical fruit flavor with mostly pepper. Lots of pepper burn on the way down. Previous rater called it a "palate killer." Though drinkable and well done, I agree.

Beerman6686 (4713) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2014
This one poured a bright light orange with an off white head. Aroma was of ttons of fresh cut mangos, grapefruit and other tropical fruits. Tons of hops and fruit. Flavor was the same, mild mango sweetness, fresh tropical hops and bog habanero burn. Exactly what I was hoping for.

hopdog (9189) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2014
On tap at Capone’s. Poured a golden color with a small sized head. Yep, this one was all about the Habernos. Palate killer - drink this one last (I’m glad I did). Not much other than an intense burning all the way down that drowned out anything else. For me, a one dimensional hot beer.

4.2
   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Draft at Capone’s. Pours thick and turbid dark straw with off-white frothy head. Nose was caramel malt, mango, berry, hopcitrus, pepper. Tastes hoppy, tropical fruity, with mango and honeydew, and the habaneros hitting at mid-palate and all the way down thereafter. Those who dislike Scoville nits need not apply, but those who crave heat will find this one eerily similar to Habanero Sculpin.
