On tap at the brewpub. Clear golden color with medium white head. Real peppery upfront aroma with spicey hops that you really have to fight to smell, dry malt. Spicey and peppery flavor with once again dry malt, caramel first with a little biscuit, some fruitiness, interesting but this takes the right person to drink it. Medium with active carbonation. Really reminds me of DDC route d’epices with that peppercorn so forward, I’m not sure if I like this or not, but its fresh atleast. pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2009
tap at the brewpub last weekend...medium apple cider brown pour with a thin soapy white head... aroma was heavy on the pepper with a moderate citrus hop backdrop... light citrus and grappy hop flavor with additional white peppar notes. decent mouthfeel. couldn’t have too much of this though.

Drinking from a Growler that I got filled up at Founders. Pours an orange color with a tint of brown, some white head. Aroma of hops and cracked peppercorns. Hops stand out in this one with a spicy peppery finish. Not bad, but doesn’t even come close to some of the other Founders brews. punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUL 22, 2009
Tap at Founder’s. Orange-gold pour with a small ring of white lace. The aroma is sweet citrus, honey, toffee, and black pepper. Notes of orange and lemon hit the tongue first, followed briefly by some biscuit and caramel malt and then some jalapeno, black pepper and heat really builds. Sticky, medium body with a fair amount of carbonation. Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - DEC 26, 2006
On tap at Founders. Hazy yellow-brown body, thin off-white head. Aroma and flavor of their basic pale ale, with light, subtle spiciness. My overall impression was of their regular Pale Ale. Pretty good, but possibly pointless.

on tap at founders...golden orange body with small head..aroma is of a typical light pale ale, as is the flavor...the flavor brings out more of the herbal, peppermint aspect than does the nose...nice and light, not too sweet or cloying ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JAN 9, 2007
Pale body with small white head. The aroma is bread, citrus and floral. The flavor is bread, honey and herbal. Light body with soft carbonation, easy drinking. SrSilliGose (3331) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 23, 2009

Tap@ Founders on 5/22/09.
A hazy golden color body with a small frothy white head,spotty lacing. Aroma is spicy and slightly citrusy,hints of sweet bready malt.Flavor is lightly sweet,with herbal notes,some pepper and hints of citrus, a little of the malt as it warms,oily feel, light body, medium carbonation. This was not bad in any way but not something I would get on a regular basis, a fun try.

On tap at Founders. Pour a gold with a little head and intriguing aromas of pepper and a little citrus. Flavor falls a little short, though as the sweetness of a honey malt presence doesn’t play nicely off the pepper presence and the two just kind of collide.
