UPDATED: AUG 9, 2016 Sample at Garlic Poet. Copper pour with light tan head. Big aroma of orange and peach, with a floral and pepper background.

Draft. Orange pour with tan head. Mango and citrus atomas, some other sweet tones. Very sweet peach mango rings flavors up front, then a rush of habanero heat. Flavors a touch artificial. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 6, 2015

Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a copper color with a small creamy off white head that faded and left decent lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweet peach, mango, sugar and a hint of hot pepper. The flavor was strong and sweet peach and mango then hot peppers slam in. Long sweet mango and hot pepper finish. The hot pepper does not really want to go away after a few sips. Moderately full bodied. Well done.

They weren’t effing around when they made this beast. Big hops, big malt sweetness, big habenero burn. The burn isn’t overbearing because the base beer is solid enough to counteract the heat to help create an actual balance. I dig it.

Sample at GABF 10/04/2014, thanks to my BIL for assistance with note-taking. Pale orange color with a medium off-white head that diminishes quickly. Short strings of lace. Aroma of tropical fruit, hops and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of piney hops, melon and malt. Subtle peppers in the background. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Solid beer all around. agl108 (1252) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2014
On draft at Proper Brick Oven and Tap Room. Poured hazy burnt orange. Slight lacing. Starts with some citrus up front that is quickly dominated by heat from the habanero. Intense heat. Shocking, really. Burns the palate. Became smoother as the palate adapted but heat still prevalent. Couldn’t drink more than one of these. katrinaez (2073) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2014
UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 The spice hits lasts. It?s a great beer. Mango scent is great and you taste it first. Would be so great with a sharp parmigiana cheese. You would never believe it is 11abv. Tap alobar (3825) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Pours slight orange yellow with aroma of pepper and some tropical fruit. Hint of tropical fruit flavor with mostly pepper. Lots of pepper burn on the way down. Previous rater called it a "palate killer." Though drinkable and well done, I agree. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2014
This one poured a bright light orange with an off white head. Aroma was of ttons of fresh cut mangos, grapefruit and other tropical fruits. Tons of hops and fruit. Flavor was the same, mild mango sweetness, fresh tropical hops and bog habanero burn. Exactly what I was hoping for.
