2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
22 oz bottle. Pours clear golden orange with a big meringue like white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.
The aroma is very subdued - some sweet malt and mild green pepper. Some perfumey notes come out as it warms.
The flavor is some sweet woody notes and some mild chile spice with a bitter spice finish. The mouthfeel is light bodied and very watery.
Overall, an OK mild chile beer. A bit watery.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Brewvolution. Golden pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are fairly bland. I get a lot of toffee and biscuit malt notes as well as some earthiness from the chilies. There is also a hint of heat. This basically tastes like Fat Tire with chilies added. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gold pour, white head. Odd beer to be honest. Hoppy, chili pepper, and a vegetal flavor...almost tastes like a hoppy soup. Hmmm.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Citrus, lots of orange!. Clean, fruity, hoppy. Chili character is mild and subdued. Perfect balance, way less chili then I expected, and I’m happy about that.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ The BeerMongers... Poured dark brownish, cloudy with a thin head. Nose had some charred chili spice and cedar wood. Faint chili pepper flavor, not too heavy and hardly any heat from the chilies. Some sweetness and toasted grains with a hint of citrus hops. Cedar wood came in and balanced it all out.
