High heat but pretty well integrated. Other flavors still come through. Stands up well in the mouth.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample at the source. The beer is a clear yellow with a white head of foam. The aroma has jalapeño notes throughout. No real spicy notes in the taste. Kind of mild actually. Peppery and breads taste. It builds with each sip. I get some peanut butter, too. Crazy stuff. Medium body and medium carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg pour from Powder Keg Beer & Chili Festival. Aroma is dominated by jalapeno pepper with some malt. Appearance is clear yellow with mild sparkle, nice head and lacing. Taste is dominated by the spicy jalapeno. Palate is light bodied with thin texture, average to lively carbonation, spicy. Overall, kudos for being interesting and unique. But, it is so dominated by the spiciness that it is a bit of a one-trick pony. Would go great with Mexican food or if you like spicy, hot anything or if you want the odd experience but can’t imagine having with any regularity.

Sampled at the NH Brewfest. In addition to loving craft beer, I am also a pepper-head and love spicy foods. This beer was not your classic beer... mostly because it did not have that much heat, but I really like the Jalapeno flavor and aroma

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
GABF. Yellow pour, white head. Flavors remind me a lot of a jalapeno cornbread. Light hops on the finish, some corn and the spice from the peppers.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer pours and oranging gold with a little head of medium sized, white bubbles. The head leaves a lacing of aghklgasdhlkasdghl. In body the beer is slightly hazy, though clean and free of particles, and is full of lazy bubbles working their way to the head. On the nose, the beer smells clean and peppery, like the flesh of a jalapeno fresh out of the garden. Light bready malts also appear lightly in the nose. On the tongue, the beer tastes spicy and softly sweet with light touches of acidity on the sides of the cheeks. In flavor the beer tastes of fresh jalapeno, spicy and fleshy with light vegetal skin notes that are beautiful on the tongue. Light, cracker malt can also be felt as a cream on the sides of the taste, balancing and cooling the spicy flavors. The finish brings the largest touch of bready malt, but the jalapeno flavors return in the aftertaste and give a nice lingering spice to the mouth alongside a slight plastic flavor. In the mouth, the beer feels on the light side of medium in body with a light jelling on the tongue. Carbonation is softer, but bites at the beginning of the sip. After the beer leaves the mouth is left wet with spice and acid canceling saliva. Overall this beer is refreshingly unique, with some awesome pepper flavors that would do amazingly with food. The spicy flavor actually dies off as you drink more of it, which is too bad, but overall this is one of, if not my favorite pepper beer with some great, fleshy, pepper flavors. A beer to try for sure.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Several 4 oz samples at the source during the release party for this beer. Pours a deep gold with a thin white cap. Ok, so it’s not a sexy looking brew. Aroma is strong jalapeno pepper which overwhelms the grains. Jalapeno follows through into the taste with a lingering heat. Thin, but "hot" palate with a lingering heat that is still present several beers later. I don’t care for pilseners and I don’t care much for hot food, but the two together was terrific. The "heat" was just right. This is one interesting brew.
