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. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Pours amber with fairly little head. You really get the jalapenos at the end of the beer - there’s a very spicy aftertaste. However, I found that there was relatively little flavor elsewhere in the beer. unclemattie (4357) - Georgia, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Tap. Orange color. Whoa, jalepaño! Tastes of eating a fresh jalepaño. That is all.

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. Can’t 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.

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.

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 there’s plenty of good pepper flavor to mask it. Finish has a little drowsiness to it. Pretty good. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Draft at brewer. Copper pour with a thick white head. Big pepper smell. Taste is mellow then fire. Different and better than most pepper brews. Shag (3041) - 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. durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2012
On tap at Thirsty Monk in Asheville. Pours slightly hazy golden with a white head. Nose shows mild hop presence, some burnt jalapeño and wet dog. Taste is nicely balanced, with more flavor than heat from the peppers but I nice slight kick at the end. ramboraffe (2257) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2014
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.
