Definitely not for everyone, but I like beer, and I like hot peppers, and I have tasted my share of failed attempts to merge the two. This one comes off quite nicely. Nice peppery aroma followed by a good malty mouthful, crisp and refreshing, then it hits you with a dose of flavorful heat. Lordy, all I needed was a pickled pigs knuckle.

"ok...you think (or at least we did) when they say hot, itís not going to be HOT, but if you think that, youíd be wrong. This deep yellow ale smells intensely of fire roasted peppers (jalapeno, habanero, and a couple others for shits and giggles). nice aroma. the first sip, pleasant at first, getís you in the back of the mouth, then the throat, then the tummy, with itís surprising building heat. holy crap. the flavor is nice if youíre a chili-head, but the scores on other sites reflect this beerís low drinkability. a sample size and itís quite nice, and usually the GABF judges are only having samples, so itís won there more than once. but in a 22 ounce bomber, you better have some sharing going on. we split the 22, and my wife took a couple sips of mine, and it was still a chore to try and finish. definitely has itís place, and Iíll get it again at $4.50, but must be shared...preferably by 4-6 people. unique if a bit over the top, tasty but low drinkability due to the intensity."

This light gold beer has a strong aroma of chilies. It has a strong flavor of chili but it completely washes out any beer flavor because it is too strong. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"Itís Hot Boy!" They werenít joking! My favorite way to drink this beer is to mix it with the Six Rivers IPA to add a spicy kick to a favorite, but it also makes a great marinade or addition to a batch of chili! Not for the faint of heart, but right up your alley if you can handle the heat!

Whoa! Aroma of crazy chilies and a total palate experience! Hot but great flavor. Met the rep at Wholefoods Roseville who gave a some great pairing tips as well as recipe ideas. Chili Pepper Pancakes. who would have thought.

Hardly a beer, aroma is spicy chiles, flavor is spicy chiles, palate is spicy chiles... Just painful to drink... Fun, but definitely a novelty type beer, would never drink again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

8 nov 2013, bottle. Yellow and a bit hazy. Nose is pure heat, green peppers. It's just hear. It doesn't taste like anything but hot green chiles and it's just heat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Just smells of a light beer which lulls you into a false sense of security. Itís HOT! Makes lips tingle, but can taste the beer beneath the burn. Bit too hot to drink a lot of. (K)

Has a chilio pepper and lager pine aroma.Hazy golden color with a thin white head. The spiciness rolls from the front of the tongue then hits the back of the throat Definitely spicy. A little overriding. Not bad for a spicy ale.

This was absolutely terrible. It has ahoy and spicy aroma and flavor, but it is gross. I really donít understand these chile beers. It is the opposite of refreshing.

Clear orange yellow with minimal head and lace. Strong strong chili pepper/jalapenos with an intense burn going down. Pretty interesting, but not something Iíll be looking for.
