On tap at the brewery. Gold, pale and clear with a thin white head. Fiery pepper aroma, jalapeños, chili peppers, etc. Flavor is moderately spicy, hot but not too much. Thin, light body. Not bad.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Draft. A- Wheat, peppers, spices. A- Yellow color, hazy liquid, minimal head. T- Spicy, jalapenos, grains. P- Light body, sharp texture, average carbonation, spicy finish. O- A very interesting beer. You don’t notice the spiciness up front but it lingers around in the aftertaste. Surprisingly smooth.

Tap at Chicken Coop in Urbandale. Light gold colored body with a thin white head. Nose is light vegetables with some jalepeno. There is not much else to smell. The tastes light with a thin body and subtle jalepeno. There isn’t much else to taste besides some potatoes. Meh. Thin and boring.

Growler from foppa, thanks Mat! Pours a very light yellow to almost pale color with a light white head. Aroma is vegetale pepper but nothing crazy on the pepper. Pretty standard for a fresh pepper beer. Taste is very light initially with the peppers coming in to the beginning and then having some stale malt come in to finish it off. The jalapeno is definitely there near the middle but provides no heat. NONE! Overall this is probably the best "lawnmower pepper beer" I’ve ever tried. Super easy drinking but could use some heat.

Tap @ Thunderhead. Pours a clear yellow appearance with a white head. Spicy pepper, nice jalapeno, lightly grainy aroma. Slightly spicy, tasty roasted jalapeno, a bit smoky flavor. Not over the top on the spiciness and not one-dimensional like so many pepper beers these days. This was nice and I would love to try again.
