4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
Well executed pepper beer...the heat was present but not crazy. The base beer was pretty straightforward and let the peppers do their thing. Clean. egajdzis (6730) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2017
Amber color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Green pepper, floral, citrus, toast, toffee, bitter hop finish. Clarkdvm (531) - Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2016 Draft at Coxe Ave brewery. Personally don?t note the peppers in the aroma but overpowering in the taste. Good beer of the genre. Lingering light heat slowrunner77 (12895) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 5, 2016
Would like more heat in this, but the flavor and nose are solid, fruity and floral, lots of pepper and earthy finish. Light to moderate in terms on heat/ jhliesen (836) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Bomber---orange color with a small, white, foamy head. Aroma has some hops but peppers dominate. The taste is similar with peppers overwhelming the hops. Medium finish with hot pepper spice on the end. They did pull off the pepper taste in the beer. Brusin ales

Draft at the Coxe Ave location. Poured a slightly dark, slightly translucent orange color with a small fluffy white head. Aroma was light roasted pepper, no heat, just some of the fruit with a touch of light sweet malts. Flavor was subtle heat, some pleasant pepper notes with a malty finish. sonnycheeba (6360) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 8, 2015
Tap at brewery. Lost detailed tasting notes and was only able to recover numerical rating. radio_nowhere (1474) - Maryland, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Draft at their brewpub, hazy orangy-golden color with off-white head. Aroma notes of citrus hops, jalapenos and caramel malt. Taste adds light pepper heat and light earthy/herbal bitterness. Light-medium body, low-moderate carbonation, dry with light spice finish. Very nice lighter pepper beer. Dogbrick (13789) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Sample at the brewpub. Slightly hazy orange color with a medium thin white head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing. Aroma of hops, peppers and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of earthy malt, jalapeno and herbal hops. The finish is peppery and malty. Decent overall.
