Pint at thirsty Monk. Pours a hazy orange. Pretty decent peppery aroma with metallic notes and caramel. The jalapeno flavor is pretty nice with a reasonable strength. A plasticity I associate with some chipotle products turns up, but theres plenty of good pepper flavor to mask it. Finish has a little drowsiness to it. Pretty good.

Tap. Orange color. Whoa, jalepao! Tastes of eating a fresh jalepao. That is all. (3614)

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Beer #9 Asheville trip. Lightly hazy orange. Aroma is lightly of caramel malts. Flavor is light caramel malts, that are slowly destroyed by a lingering heat. Cant say the jalapeno did much for flavor, really just making it hot. Not a big fan of chili pepper beers, and this one just confirmed my general bias against them.

Draught at Plant. Malty and a bit chewy. Caramel throughout. Then the presence of jalapeo pepper.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2015 On tap at the Creekside Tavern, this pours a light amber into the glass, with a decent soapy head that leaves spotty lacing. The nose is spot on for jalapeo peppers, caramel and some sweet vegetal notes. Flavors are of caramel, biscuit flour and pepper skins with floral hops, light vanilla and a nice dose of capsaicin to finish the pull. The mouthfeel, once past the heat (which isnt nearly the hottest brew Ive ever had, but those sensitive to spice might find a little warm), is medium-bodied and softly carbonated. Definitely lively to the palate. A very interesting jalapeo take on their traditional "Escape Artist" pale ale. Honestly, its definitely become a guilty pleasure for me, as I quite like this jalapeo brewed version. (This, of course, comes from a fan of spicy foods.)

Draft. Pours hazy golden color thin lacing. Aroma of floral, pine, and jalapenos. Medium sweet flavor from the malt, finishes spicy. The spice level is a bit delayed but grows with each sip. Despite the spice, after each sip Im craving more. One of the most unique beers Ive had, and I found it to be particularly well done.

SpringsLicker (3606) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Brewgrass 2012 The version I sampled was run through a Cilantro & Lime mini-Randall. The aroma was fresh cilantro. The flavor was like a mouth full of beer and salsa. The Jalapenos kick in as a subtle yet firm burn on the tongue that kicks in about the third swallow. I think I would prefer the unfiltered version and would rate it accordingly better.

Shag (2978) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Amber color with a white head. Aroma contains some citrus, peppers, and caramel. The flavor has some herbal notes with some jalapenos and lemons. An interesting beer to wash these 5 alarm freakin chicken fingers. Oooooph son.

Drjohnrock (761) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Draft sampler at Asheville Brewings Merrimon Avenue location. Medium amber color,, small white head that mostlyy lasted with good lacing, rather strong jalapeno aroma, light body, flavor of jalapenos that thankfully isnt overpowering with a hint of celery as well and malt to balance things. Offbeat but interesting. Tasted on July 7, 2012.

Pours amber with fairly little head. You really get the jalapenos at the end of the beer - theres a very spicy aftertaste. However, I found that there was relatively little flavor elsewhere in the beer.
