2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Blipp. Pours a light golden body with thin white lacing. Aroma is pepper and light malt. Mouthfeel is medium to light with essentially just straight chili pepper flavor. Although not as gruesomely horrific as the Ghost Face Killah, this is still not too drinkable, as say, some of Ballast Pointís pepper-treated beers.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma is spices and green/red peppers. The flavor is green/red peppers and then intense spiciness all the way into the finish. Decent made but nowhere near the balance in flavor it needed to not make it pure spiciness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Shepís in St. Pete. Clear golden lager like pour with no head. Aroma is full of pepper spice, nothing else gets through. I like it. Flavors are just the same. Very chili forward yet this remained super drinkable. The heat in the finish just came and went after each sip. Didnít linger, but I love chilies and spicy food. Nicely done.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy orange with a small white head. Smokey chili aroma and flavor. Grainy finish. I think Iím spoiled by other chili beers with more going on that makes me want to keep going back for more. Mildly spicy first finish that builds.

Itís like giving an award for most authentic looking fake dog poop. They do what they do well, but why? Itís a niche that Iím not in to. Not their fault, though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served with tomato juice ("Bloody Billyís"). Cloudy red-orange appearance with minimal reddish head. Aromas of peppers, tomatoes, and spice. Flavor is sweet tomato up front, then a pleasant heat from the peppers that lingers momentarily. Soft carbonation and heavy body give it a smooth mouthfeel. The tomato is really a nice addition and compliments the heat from the peppers. One of my favorites at the Twisted Pine tap room.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Mariís. This is the second pepper beer Iíve had. The first was Ghost Face Killah.. and that melted my face. The appearance is fairly clear yellow with a big head that goes away nearly immediately. there is a ton of carbonation in the glass and some type of floaters in there. The aroma has some spicy peppers up front (shocker) and almost a bud light lime background. The taste is peppery and really reminds me of a serrano pepper garlic salsa that I used to buy. That salsa is better than this beer but this is not overly spicy and is drinkable. The palate is watery but I donít know that a more dense beer would be ideal. For what it is, itís fine..

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Out of a bottle. Pour hazy-ish. Strong notes of chili. LOTS of chili. I taste more serrano than anything. No spice, which I like. Would be great boiling in brats!

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden color with very little head. The nose on this is filled with lots of chili notes like a great chili stew. Taste has some slight chili notes to it, but is a fairly unremarkable ale otherwise.
