3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light orange. Smells like jalapenos- nice and green. Taste isn’t nearly as hot, jalapenos over an amber beer base. Some heat in the back of the mouth, but pretty mild- not at all overwhelming. Quite good. This would be great with some chips or nachos or really any Mexican food.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared among other RB/BA folk... Poured golden with a white head. Pepper flavors were very potent. And I had this a long some high quality hot sauces and mexican food and it was a great compliment. Since my palate getting ruined by al the spice and heatI was able to enjoy the nice cereal-grain sweetness and ale yeast tones this had to offer. Notes of peppers, bell peppers, black pepper, and peppercorns.

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.

3/18/11. Bomber courtesy SHIG. Mild corny aroma with a hint of pepper, but nothing spicy. Nicer malty flavor with a bigger hint of pepper. Not bad, a but light.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2012 On tap at the Brewery. Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of roasted jalapeños and fresh green bell peppers. Flavor of roasted jalapeño and toasted grain. This was a good pepper beer. I bought a bottle of this to bring home.

22oz bomber, pours a yellow pale lagerish... I was expecting a spicy arima but not so much. Weird adjunct sweetness with a backed of pepper. Gross.
