3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I picked this up on a trip this past summer and somehow it got lost in my cellar until now.
Pours a deep golden color with a huge fluffy white head that dissipates slowly to form a cap.
Smells of green peppers, jalapeno’s and other assorted hot peppers. I can’t find anything malty or sweet beneath the overwhelming spicy pepper smell.
Taste is filled with toffee and brown sugar up front. I found the malt! Caramel and pepper skins midway with a long lingering spicy heat on the finish.
Mildly carbonated, medium body with a slick almost syrupy mouthfeel.
This one isn’t half bad. The heat wasn’t overwhelming, I could see me enjoying these if I were closer to the brewery.
