Amber pour. Flavour is citrusy hops, chillies and alcohol provide some warmth. Bready malt with apricot and other stone fruit flavours. Okay.

bottle. Golden with one finger head. The description on the bottle sounds interesting, but the beer inside the bottle doesnít live up to the description. Maybe thereís a hint of pepper, or maybe Iím just imagining it. If itís there, itís ridiculously faint. I canít even pretend that I taste the cedar. Thereís a mild body with some hops. Thatís it. Iíd be underwhelmed if this were a run of the mill pale ale, but for what this is, Iím really disappointed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This has a neat aroma - very fruity, a bit doughy with a very mild chili backend. Mostly clear, honey gold with a stiff seafoam head. Decent tap handle, but hard to differentiate between the different LoF varieties. Malty aroma, slow and mild chili burn which only builds slightly. There was an unpleasant twinge of strange bitterness - spice, pepper, alcohol - at the very back. Oily mouthfeel. This was interesting, and I could see it as an occasional sipping beer. Obviously, it would be a good food pairing with some kind of Latin food. On tap, Whole Foods, Tallahassee.

Tap. Mostly clear orange pour with a big light cream head. Aroma is green peppers and some darker fruit. Clean palate, medium bodied. Taste is a touch of yeast, a little citrus, and some pepper. Mild pepper heat. Just a hint of wood as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle, best enjoyed by November 2014. Served in a goblet, the beer pours a mostly clear orange/amber color with a half inch off-white creamy head. Head retention is good, and thereís a lot of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like green peppers, apricots, oranges, wood/cedar and some cherries. The taste is similar to the aroma, but the peppery heat is noticeable (but not strong). Thereís also some bready malt and herbal flavors in there, too. Thereís also a lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís smooth and has moderate carbonation. I liked this, thereís just enough heat to make this interesting. $8.99 a bomber.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma was nothing special. As an earlier rater said, "it smells like a beer". Poured from a bomber. Pours a copper color with a off-white head. . Taste is decent, with some pepper flavor. The peppers are more noticable in the back of your throat. Probably will not buy this again, just not for me.
