3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Blind Tiger. I’ll preface my remarks by saying that I like hot food, so the heat here is not an issue for me. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head that lasted through the first two or three sips and left light lace. The pepper is noticeable in the aroma but not even close to overwhelming. There is also some citrus and malt present in the nose. The flavor begins with malt and is quickly washed over by a solid dose of habanero heat. The heat is not overdone IMO and does not linger excessively. In fact, some citrus hops clearly make their way through the heat towards the finish. Overall, an enjoyable pint.

Clear yellow with a fizzy white hEad. Aroma of grapefruit and pine with pepper notes. Tastes like an ipa with habanero heat to the finish. Not for gringos.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Sampled at the taproom on 8/6/10. Clear gold pour with a thin white head. Aroma of hot peppers, funk, and metal. Sad to say, the aroma isn’t unlike Ed’s Cave Creek. I know I haven’t rated that one, but believe you me, I’ve had it. Flavor is skunky and malty with the hot pepper coming through furiously before a semi-hoppy finish. Finishes with a bit of that sewage flavor that Cave Creek has. Try it if you dare.

A: The pour is amber, with plenty of orange, in color with a mild white head and served with a slice of lime on the rim of the glass (more on this later).
S: The pepper is noticeable right away. The nose is lightly fruity and earthy, sort of like an actual habanero pepper is. The spice comes through shortly after and singes the nostrils a bit.
T: The pepper flavor is enormous in this beer. Like the ginger IPA, the base beer is really lost and all you can taste is the flavoring. In this case, the pepper provides a lot of heat. I enjoy spicy food, but the heat along with the carbonation and beer medium altogether is just not all that enjoyable.
M: The body is light to medium with a plentiful carbonation.
D: This was not very good. I tried squeezing the lime into the beer and it did help to temper the chili a little bit, but it really just made the beer taste like lime and burn like a pepper. Attempts at blending with the ginger IPA to make a spicy dish in beer form did not work very well either.
