3.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep, brilliant ruby with a skinny off-white topper. As with most fruit based beers the aroma is off-putting to me. I always seem to get the scent of rotten fruit. No matter, this brew is straight up delicious. Nice malt, a unique, subtle date sweetness and a slow creeping pepper heat. The spiciness of the peppers really lingers nicely. Crisp, medium bodied. Tasty as hell.

Sampled at DLD. Kind of bright brown in color with a beige layer. Big maltiness and peppers in here makes an interesting mix. Some smokiness. A bit of sugar and molasses. Interesting and pretty decent stuff.

Can sent courtesy of Doran. Thanks. Pours an amber-orange with a big white head. Nose is caramel malts and you can smell the dates. No pepper yet. Medium in body, with a spicy mouthfeel. The flavor is rich and the pepper shows just the right amount to add some character to the beer. Spicy finish. Unusual and enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours reddish orange with very little off white head. Slightly sweet and smokey malty aroma. The taste follows the aroma with a light tingle of peppers on the tongue. Medium slightly oily mouth feel. All in all a decent beer but nothing earth shattering.

Can thanks to Casey at 28 Springs. Pours an orangish red with little head. Not much flavor. Slightly hot and spicy. Medium to light bodied yuck. The peppers distract. Icky.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It poured an orange color with a small white head. The aroma was of dates and some chipotle peppers. The taste was similar but not overwhelming with heat. This was a good one.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
The color of this beer is a hazy orangeish red with a medium white head, and the aroma blends caramel malts, dates, and chipotle pepper. The taste is mildly sweet and a touch umami, and the palate combines a medium body, slick texture, touch of spice, soft carbonation, and a finish that, if you let it set long enough in the mouth, warms the mouth slightly.
