COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Six kinds of hot chili peppers go into this fiery-ass beer including the infamous ghost pepper. Serrano, jalapeno, habanero, fresno & anaheim also lend their rich flavors to make for a taste-sizzling good time. Keep away from children and the tepid of tongue.

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.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2014 From a 12 oz bottle shared at the Beer Heads bottle share in Falls Church. Pours a cloudy gold with a feint off white head. Intense chili pepper aroma. Overwhelming heat. Interesting. Definitely not a session beer. A palate wrecker.

Travlr (11214) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Beerandblues2, thank you sir! Bright yellow color, small white head. Aroma is shocking!!! Chili powder, almost painful. Taste is pure pain. Danger, danger, danger. More difficult than drinking Mikkeller Black.

Bottle. Pours a golden orange with minimal head. Aroma of spices. Taste of liquid chili. Basically a novelty beer.

Beerman6686 (4302) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2014
This poured a bright orange with a white head. Aroma was straight chiliís, basically liquid hot sauce. Flavor was similar, a sip or two is enough. The taste isnít bad, its just too hot to enjoy.

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.

Bottle thanks to arts share. Poured pale yellow with no head. Aroma of green peppers and other spicy ones. Taste of straight spice. Super spice all spice.

yngwie (13525) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2014
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

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.

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.
