4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
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

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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
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.
