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.

2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a clear golden yellow. No head. Aroma of straight chillies. Taste is hot hot hot! Just like drinking a hot sauce. Even burns all the way down. Medium thick mouthfeel. Pretty darn gross.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A hazy, orange beer, more or less flat and headless. Green bell peppers, green chili, some pale malts and citrus fruit. So much chili that itís hurting in the eyes. The flavor has loads of chiliburn, some maltyness and citrus, and also both green chili and green bell peppers. Itís full-bodied and warming on the palate, really, really warming, and lightly oily. Lacking a bit on carbonation. Some bitterness towards the very end. Wow! This oneís damn hot, but in small quantities itís actually good. So good I think I could perhaps finish a bottle on my own. 140530

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 355ml @ home
Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma has notes of malt, jalapeno and habanero pepper fruits. Taste is light sweet with a long ridiculously hot chili burn ( but only on the tongue and lips and lucikily not the throat ) and some chili fruitiness in the finish after the worst of the burn wheres off. Body is light, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
12oz bottle smells and taste like a cut up pepper. Almost ruined our tasting but made up for it when we gave an unsuspecting fellow a large glass of some.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
12oz. bottle. Aroma of jalapeno juice, basically like unscrewing a bottle of peppers and sticking your nose in there. Light-medium yellow in color, not much carbonation or head to speak of. Flavor profile is just pure chili pepper flavor and extreme heat, again I have to go back to the jalapeno juice comparison, only much hotter. No beer flavor whatsoever, itís completely lost in the over the top heat and pepper juice character. Just gets hotter and hotter over the next few minutes after the swallow. Not pleasant. Kind of a joke I guess, but not a funny one. Itís safe to say that I hated it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours hazy light straw with minimal white head. Aroma is all pepper...hot pepper. Taste is straight up hot hot hot and hot pepper...and as bitches will say, pain. Flows light over the tongue but wait... here comes the heat. Finishes with all oily heat... and peppers. If you aren?t adventurous stay away. This beer is more pepper than beer... but they aren?t hiding that. This puts stones crime to shame... punishment was better though
