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.

12oz bottle poured into glass -- Well, this beer happened. I first had it as a home brew, someone decided it was a good idea as a mass produced beer. I argue, "why? " Uncomfortably hot, nothing favorable. I tried to enjoy this brew. Pretty sure I?m about to go shit lava now. ... I have come to the point that I donít even want to drink this beer, Iím looking at and avoiding it.

Beerdedone (2730) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours golden yellow with no head. Aroma was a hot blend of chili peppers. Flavor was hot & spicy with pale malts, chili peppers with a long lingering burning finish. Strictly a novelty beer.

I love hot food, but this beer is undrinkable. Way too much heat. This is a gimmick beer. Don't buy, I took one sip and dumped it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (8651) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Sample at Kurtkeller 018: Tequila-aged and Letís Agree to Ruin Our Evening with Pepper beers-tastic 01 on 11/04/2014. Clear bright orange-gold color with a minimal white head that disappears quickly. Spotty lacing. The aroma is all peppers. Light-bodied with flavors of searingly hot peppers with a touch of pale malt behind it. The finish is hot with a lingering hot pepper aftertaste. Not as day-ruiningly hot as Elevator Ghost Scorpion, but unapproachable and difficult to drink,so scored accordingly.

kerenmk (2549) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond. Cloudy yellow amber and headless. Hot Serrano pepper in brine aroma, very hot, and nothing but hot chili pepper in the mouth. Medium body and hardly any carbonation. Lip burner and challenging.

Bottle from Craft. Really just pepper. Nothing else to say. Burns going in and coming out. I needed the rating, interesting concept, but I wouldnít get it again.

rayaron (338) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond, Tel Aviv. Clear light yellow with quickly diminishing small white head. Very hot aroma, chili, pickles, some olives. Very very very hot flavor, pickles, very light sweetness. Light carbonation, probably light-bodied. It feels hot in lips, the tongue, the throat, all the way to the stomach, and itís long lasting...

Salmoniform (983) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Golden hue with fuzzy white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is chili peppers and straw. Mouthfeel is good with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is overwhelmingly spicy throughout. Overall this is one of the hottest beers that Iíve had. The pepper flavor is actually quite impressive and the beer is very well made. That being said...this is nothing but a novelty brew!

"2nd or 3rd hottest beer Iíve ever had. you feel it in your gut, but itís not as palate destroying as a couple others. Decent pepper taste, though it becomes a bit much if youíre having more than, say, 2 oz. Iíd get again to share, but not a beer Iíll drink often."
