Tap. Clear copper brown with a foamy beige hear. Aromas of vegetables, spicy pepper, and light malt. Flavor is the same, the spice kick is upfront with a malty vegetable finish. Medium bodied, lingering heat.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at brewery. Orangey amber with a nice off-white head. Holy habaneros, batman. Hard to make out the other elements (some toasted malt, caramel, honeyish) with the intense chili spice overwhelming this. The fruitiness of the habanero does complement the esters from the yeast nicely. But for me, this was just a sampler, not a sipper. Too unbalanced.

Pours brown shot through with amber. Pillowy head. Pretty beer. Sweet on the tongue. Burning note creeps up the back of the throat. Very pleasant.

My Bottom Line:
Refreshing and spicy, this brew’s soft bubbling and dryness benefits from balanced peppery rye and habanero peppers in the second half.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the hazy blond.
-Chili dosage is on the moderate side, which I appreciate.
-This is another Night Shift brew which is great for many types of food pairings.
-Drinkability is quite high.

Really intersting beer. The rye spice comes through on a complex malt profile. Bready and caramel with a lot of habanero heat. Finishes with tons of spice and moderate sweetness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy amber with a huge tan head...very foamy. Aroma smells of raspberry and peppers. Flavorhas agave up front...still raspberry-like...vegetal and hot habanero notes with a touch of rye spice. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is earthy/agave/pepper...a bit like a habanero fruit jam flavor...good heat to this one.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Amber coloured. Unclear. No head. Aroma: pebbery and full of chili. Flavour. Chili, pebber, some fruits and some sweetness. Quite thin bodied. Ends full of chili. Not balanced and shaped after my tastebuds. Too much chili dominance.

Sample from 75 cl. bottle. Hazy, amber colour with a golden tint, dense, off-white head. Spicy aroma with chili pepper, red berries, caramel malts and sweet fruits. Taste is light sweet. Medium body, lively carbonation. Finishes dry and spicy with chili peppers. Good for a chili beer.
