ramboraffe (2257) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2014
Aroma: This beer has a light hop nose, with some fairly strong pepper notes to it
Appearance: It pours an orange color, with an off white head and some coating lace
Flavor: The flavor is more pepper forward over the light, clean hops
Palate: It has a pretty smooth feel, with a medium body, and a pepper spice finish
This is a pretty decent pepper spice beer. I can’t complain too much, because they did a nice job with this one.
On tap at brewpub. Amber with white head. Smell is light malty with jalapenos. Taste is warming hot jalapenos and caramel malty and floral hops. Crazy but balanced with the hot jalapenos. jandd1983 (4444) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Sampler at the brewpub. It poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, jalapenos and caramel. The taste was of jalapenos, lemons and some maltiness. Interesting. Cybercat (5962) - Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy amber with a pale buff head. Malty aroma has a hot pepper hint. Flavor is malty and peppery - maybe a little too peppery, but still potable. Texture is smooth and, well, peppery. Can you escape this fire? woodychevy (874) - - MAY 11, 2014
Had as part of flight at Juicy Lucy’s. Pours nice orange color. Low marks for appearce- no head at all. Taste is malty and spicy all at once. Great beer if you are a lover of the jalapeno. Not at all subtle in the spice. Sort of masks the other flavors going on- would be good with food that could stand up to it. They might tame each other a bit. Bit spicy for me, but not bad.

Sampled at GABF 2013. Orange appearance with a beige head. Spicy jalapeño pepper aroma. Similar flavor with light malts and spices. ellolovey (483) - Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2013
On tap at Asheville Pizza and Brewery. Taste like fresh jalapeños. Clear golden pour white head. sweet malts and fresh garden vegetables.. loads of jalapeños. Malty_MacHops (688) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - JUN 16, 2013
I was really surprised by this beer. The nose has elements of caramel and brown sugar in it with a nice backing of roasted jalapeno. Brown with a very small head. Sweet in the front, bitter in the middle, and spicy in the end. The heat is not overwhelming, but plays a subtle partner to the beer’s malt profile. Medium bodied with a spicy warming finish. Went great with carnitas and grilled corn. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - APR 16, 2013
Draft. Lightly hazed amber body with medium off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange, grapefruit, juicy jalapeno. Taste is medium sweet, orange, light chile/chile heat. Light-medium body, light acidity. Really like how the heat in the nose is significantly moderated in the taste. arventresca (567) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Tried with a sample at one of the breweries. Not bad. A little spicy, but very mild overall.
