This was an extremely sweet beer, but definitely well balanced. Very fruity aroma, and yet it is a beer you could drink a whole bottle and still enjoy it at the end. I like unique beers and this one is just that

750ml bottle thanks to Nick3. Cloudy yellowish golden in color with a lasting white head. Interesting aroma with sweet malt, floral notes, chile peppers, and honey. Flavor is a bit strange but not bad really. Rather sweet with honey and wheat, citrus, floral notes, and booze, with some vegetable notes. Medium-plus bodied with average carbonation. A strange brew. Not bad, but I wouldn’t want a lot of it.

notalush (4631) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Mostly clear gold - a fairly straightforward, clean and moderately sweet DIPA - flavors of vanilla and earthy hops, with a bit of coconut and a cool, minty character from the hops - very well-hidden alcohol - lingering vanilla - not bad - not sure what makes it worth 14 bucks a bottle.

alexanderj (3267) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2012
On tap; poured an amber-orange color; aroma of lemon, caramel, citrus and honey. Flavor had alot of lemon and honey; a touch of earthy hops in the finish. Some touches of bread and caramel. Somewhat of a hybrid and a good stuff.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Tap @ Odell. Golden appearance with a white head. Somewhat toasty malty, lemon citrusy, light honey aroma. A bit spicy, moderate honey, sweet malty, somewhat light bodied flavor. Kind of a weird combination of flavors. I got a touch of the peppers but not a whole lot.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle. Pours a golden yellow color with a white head. Aroma is of pear, peach, sweet malt, grassy and citrussy hops, green apple and subtle wheat. The flavor has a lot of pear, with some of the citrussy and peach, subtle oak on the back end, green apple, white grape, subtle sweet malt, honey and wheat. The body is light to medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty interesting brew and the concept is quite cool.

tbrink (5) - USA - FEB 25, 2012 does not count
Poured on tap, this is a beer with a lot going on at once, and with ingredients coming from ten different states, that’s to be expected. Sweet, candy nose with a very subdued hop presence. Despite 9.5 abv, this is almost cloyingly sweet with a hot alcoholic finish that turns into a bitter finish, and finally the hops make their presence felt. There are chiles in here somewhere, and they’re barely detectable. This is definitely one to sit on and taste much later.

RSRIZZO (1847) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 24, 2012
750 ml corked and caged bottle poured into a Snifter at 41°. Color is a hazy golden with very active carbonation and a tall rocky head that just keeps growing. As you pour more into your glass a few chucky floaties show up. Aroma is fruity and a little sour with some yeast in the back. It has a lighter medium body that goes down with a crisp yet smooth mouth feel. Flavor is light with pear, a hint pf pineapple and just a touch of peach, then a little oak shows giving it a note of vanilla. The hops come in giving a nice floral taste and a little citrus along with a nice bitterness. After taste comes on slightly dry with a tart almost sour feel then the citrus comes back up. Overall its a great brew, big extremely complex flavor, yet light and easy to drink with a nice alcohol kick that is completely hidden.

Honey colored pour, light head. Aroma is loaded with great malty notes, wheat, honey, funky fruit the background. Nice malty flavor, honey, sweet wheat notes, corn, oak notes. Pretty cool beer all the way around.
