COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The blend of papaya and a small dose of habaneros provide an ideal mixture of spicy and sweet.

Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange peel, slight tropical fruit into a bit of grain, some veggie notes into a bit of grain. Taste was a mix of orange, mango, pine into some grass, citrus from the habanero into big spice, biscuit, bread, finishing spicy.

12oz bottle pours a yellow amber color without much head. Lots of chili burning at the end. Not tasting much of the papaya. Mild hoppiness.

From a bottle. Reddish-amber in color with a short lived head. Smells hoppy and citrus, with a hint of pepper. Taste starts out hoppy and a little bitter; crisp and refreshing. This is when it starts to fall apart for me. Overpowering taste of hot pepper comes on and stays strong through the finish, and after. Leaves a slight burning in the back of the throat for a half hour after drinking. If this is enjoyable for you, this beer is good. Just not for me.

Nice looking copper orange color. Tropical fruit in the aroma with a hint of chili pepper. Taste is tropical fruit with some nice peppery heat. Pretty decent.

Extra from Flandersned. Thanks! Tropical nose with light spice. Mango definitely present in taste, with habanero mostly subtle but spiked me pretty good in the nose a couple times. Well integrated with nice hop finish.

Flight pour on tap at the brewpub (Grand Haven, MI). Pours a nice golden orange. with a largely transparent body. A bit dulled with a fall golden orange glow, some lively carbonation with a firmer frothy offwhite head atop. A decent layer atop sticks as a loose film, thicker ring with nice lacing. Aromas are a bit citrusy, some earthy hops meet mellow tropical fruit, papaya nectar, mellow earthy spice. Some bready malts, some earth, more papaya with touches of kiwi, faint spiciness. Bready, nice fruit presence. Initial is lighter end of the fold in body with touches of papaya, faint metallic and earthy bitterness meet some fermented tropical fruit, papaya and faint guava. Some earthy hops, gentle bready malt. Flavorful, a bit soapy and citrusy into the middle. Some decent bitterness, grassy and floral with some white grape as we move back. the tropical fruit gives a gentle hint but a firmer hop element picks up back here. A bit bready, faint sweetness with some touches of tropical fruit nectar trying to hang on. Faint gumball, earth, nice hop presence. Fresh, tasty, a touch sweet or firmer body at times but the pepper element doesn’t show much life for me. A mellow warmth grows into backend and finish, down the throat a bit of warmth lingers and grows just gingerly throughout. A really nice beer that seems to accomplish exactly what it wants. Solid hop presence, nice tropical fruit addition with just a bit of warmth that grows, peppery life that finishes and lingers. Nice.
