3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Founders in July 2009.
A: Yellow gold with a white head.
S: Lots of chili peppers in the nose here...it was incredible how much this one actually smelled like I had a sliced pepper under my nose.
T: Not as much pepper as the nose, but that’s a good thing. A little bit of heat comes with the pepper, as well as slight hop bitterness.
M: Lots of spiciness going on here. Fairly light otherwise.
D: Very interesting, but not terribly drinkable. All around, a very interesting brew.
Serving type: on-tap

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, amber in color. A burst of jalapeños and light caramel malt in the nose. Light-bodied, lightly carbonated. Jalapeño peppers in the flavor with some sweetness of caramel malt to balance. I wouldn’t want to regularly drink it, but it was a fun experience, especially paired with the Devil Dancer sandwich.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
had this after the harvest party, 2010. pours clear gold. white head. big pepper (habanero) in the aroma and flavor. a touch of hops as well. altho it is quite basic, it is great to see a brewer push boundaries with beers like this
