3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Part of a tasting flight of Jailbreak beers, some months ago Gaithersburg MD. I don’t do hot, cilantro, or hoppy. This beer was so far outside my comfort zone that I almost didn’t try it. Kudos to the brewery rep for convincing me. Somehow those flavors work out to a refreshing drink. Tastes of jalapeños with no heat. Cilantro is there, but not "soapy" as I usually taste it. Hops are there, but not a lot. An IPA lover might not like this at all, but I was quite satisfied.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
appearance: clear orange, frothy off-white head. aroma: STRONG aroma of cilantro, with earthy jalapeño, some biscuit and brown bread, maybe a hint of citrus. taste: extremely herbal; the jalapeño note is present in the flavor, but blessedly free of most of the heat; cilantro and general herb garden overpowers a bit of orange zest and a whisper of graham cracker malt. finish: lingering earthy, herbal dryness that I wish would go away; cilantro notes don’t quit. notes: Major points for creativity, and for not making this an overly hot/spicy abomination like the Habañero Sculpin from Ballast Point. But the herbal notes were way out of balance, and ended up detracting from the overall beer. Came across as a gimmick, and I actually like cilantro and jalapeños. Couldn’t finish. Drain pour. Can from Total Wine & More, Alexandria, Virginia.

At Great British Beer Festival 2015. Day 3. Clear amber beer with a small offwhite head. Fruity hop aroma, spicy notes, kinda balanced chili. Unbalanced chili in the flavor, way too much to allow anything alse in this beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
13th August 2015
GBBF Day 3. Cask. Clear amber beer, a few pale cream colour bubbles. Palate is light and semi dry and has a fine crispness. Good sweetish orange marmalade is detectable before the chilli kicks in, burns and dominates. Light finish. Chilli linger. For this kind of beer it’s not bad, but why anyone would want more than a couple of gob fulls is completely beyond me.
