I smell orange, then my nose hairs are curling from pepper, a little honey, yes there’s heat, lingering but not intense, orange, cherry, caramel, alcohol in flavors. Almost not beer, fermented fruit with peppers?

Poured an amber is color with aromas of spoces, pepper, malt, light cedar and dissapointment. Flavors follow suit underwhelming for a beer that I expect to be better coming from 2 very solid breweries. Off flavors of too much spice for me and veggies meh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle bought at Champanes,
this ale made an initial large faint off-white light yellow colored head of foamy bubbles when poured,
it was a light burnt-orange and gold color in the glass, there may have been a touch of red, the glass had a bit of sediment particles floating around, this beer left nice rings, spots and sheets of lacing on the sides of the glass,
the nose was toasted malt, some faint bread, some light citrus and faint lemon hops with malt and candy like sweetness,
there was peppers on the nose and it was light on the nose with a touch of vegetable like notes,
the flavors were toasted malt with citrus hops with a touch of resin,
the finish had some hop bitterness with toasted malt, the pepper heat came out after the drink and it was gentle and it was not overbearing,
this beer felt light medium on the palate, it was creamy and had average carbonation,
this beer was balanced with the malt, hops and pepper, the pepper was not over bearing and blended well with the malt sweetness,
when I saw this beer, I thought of the Stone’s Crime beer which was a total disaster, and hesitated a bit before picking up the bottle,
this beer was much better than the Stone’s Crime and actually had a balance between the malt and peppers, which the Stone Crime beer has none, even though this beer was pretty balance, it was not exciting as a drink, it was a nice though.

Pours a clear golden with a thin white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of pepper and cardboard. Taste is a bit muddled and old as well, offering a light bitterness along with some sherry, sugar and a vague chili heat. Hops are long gone. Pretty sure this wasn’t meant to age... Average body and carbonation. Pretty much dead...

Pours a dark golden amber. Aromas of chilis, hops, and some spices. Astringent cedar notes and hoppy flavor, not much chili.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden color and topped by a thick layer of off white foam that shows good retention. The aroma Is fruity and spicy with notes of chili peppers, citrus fruit, some wood, and a bready, pale malt base. Some earthy hops and spice come through as well. The flavor follows with the citrus fruit that is very tropical in nature with some earth chilis, sweet caramel and pale malts, a touch of wood, and some earthy hop bitterness on the back end. The chilis add a touch of heat, but not as much as expected. The flavor is more sweet and fruity with light spice. The cedar doesn’t come through much either. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation that leads to a bitter sweet and spice finish. Interesting beer, but not really what I was expecting. Still a nice flavor to it.

Rating #1191. 19.07.2014 On tap @revolutionyeg Pours a golden yellow with a white foam that bubbles away quickly. Aroma is cascadey-citrusy hops and still roasting peppers. Taste is quite smooth, lightly hopped, mild sweetness and the smokiness/heat from the chilis lingers into the finish, but is not unpleasant. Predictably spicy and delicious.
