1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle at home with my dad. Pour is clear yellow with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Huge chili/spicy aroma, sweet corn, and biscuit. Taste is literally like taking down chili juice, leaving a burning feeling in my throat and tongue. Thin body with high carbonation. Terrible beer and 1 oz was more than enough for me.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Total Wine, Fairfax: I donít really care what this looks like. The aroma is every kind of hot pepper, fresh, steamed, and cooked. However, this beer is pretty much undrinkable. I love spicy food. I mean, I really like spicy food. I pours half a bottle of sri racha on anything. I can drip tabasco into my mouth. I ask for extra spicy at Indian restaurants. I canít drink this. It is only pepper and nothing else. Really, there is so much pepper. Ugh. Interesting, but ainít worth finishing. Gonna need to pour this jawn down the drain.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
Reviewed 3/8/13. 12 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass. I was really looking forward to this one - if only for the novelty factor alone.
A: Pours a cloudy golden color. The head is a one finger white shade that retains very poorly.
S: File this one into the "no shit" category: itís full of ridiculously hot peppers. Plain and simple, it smells like acid reflux. Yay?
T: This actually has more to it than just bowel-fuckingly hot peppers. For a brief minute, it has slight touches of initial tropical fruit (like mango and papaya). Then, the midtaste becomes quite smoky, and then pure fiery heat descends. I also detect notes of pine and phenolic plastic. Iím surprised how complex this is; no it doesnít layer itself in a finessed manner - but there is a rock-solid depth to it. In terms of heat, itís not really that far off from a spicy michelada, nor is it the hottest thing Iíve put in my mouth. If anything, it hits the hallmark objective of what a spicy tongue-fucker should achieve: can you taste more to it than just stupid chile heat? If anything, the huge phenolic notes are the biggest detractor for me, not the spiciness.
M: For sure, one burns the palate with searing heat. This destroys the palate far better than any IPA could hope to achieve. Itís clean and dry enough where the heat actually doesnít last ridiculously long on the palate, though. Still, I can really feel it in my esophagus, retro-nasals, and stomach - and I can really feel acid reflux setting in, too.
O: Itís actually not the hottest thing Iíve ever had before - but itís one of the hottest things Iíve ever drank (only a couple of bloody marys or micheladas that I overspiced really challenge it). It gets an 18 just for the experience; itís certainly not pleasant, but itís somehow fun to drink. I reckon this would make an awesome adjunct to chili, as well.

Pours a dark gold color with hot pepper, took one drink and felt the burn immediately, too hot for me. I will say they did what they set out to accomplish cause it burned

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange with no head. Aroma and flavor of spicy chili peppers. Lots of heat. Fun to try I guess, might be good in a cocktail.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours hazy dark yellow/orange with very little head. Lots of sediment left in the bottle. Aroma is of spicy chili peppers as expected. Flavor is of Serrano and jalapeño peppers with the heat of ghost peppers. A nice novelty beer.

12oz bottle from Samís, purchased along with some knowing pre-therapy from the good people who work there. You guys were right. Touted as "an experience" and "good to share with a bunch of people," I sat on this one for a couple of months until enough folks gathered in JCB Manor to dole this one out in less fearsome quantities. Itís like a BMC beer got possessed and was tormenting you for buying it. Seriously, Ralph Wiggum donít know shit. And into the chili it goes. Ding!

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2013 Completely unnecessary (except for masochists and their sadist friends). Seriously - it has the aroma of jalape√Īo juice, and a "flavor" that almost matches. Leaves that post-"my-poop-will-burn-tomorrow" burn on the tongue and throat.
Reeks (and that word is used literally) of an item that exists solely for he purpose of sadistic fraternity initiation rituals.
tldr: donít bother - a complete waste of resources.
