COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An artisanal style IPA combining midly bitter hops, garden fresh jalapeno peppers and cilantro. With a moderate malt profile, this culinary concoction offers both an easy drinking IPA & a bowl full of jalapenos without the burn or bittering one might expect. Never would Scoville have imagined such a fitting match for the worlds perfect pepper.

Very slightly hazy amber and copper coloured body with a nice, two centimetre tan head that fades modestly. Aroma of chiles, alcohol, a touch of malt and much more chile heat - no hops noticeable in the nose here at all. Medium-bodied; Assertive pungent chile heat hits hard at first then shows some subdued earthi8ness, a hint of floral and grassy complexities and some decent hop notes near the end with the bitterness purely visible. Aftertaste shows some chile heat, a lot of assertive pepper flavours and finishing with a good kick of chile and heat at first that fades to a decent enough beer. Overall, a good chile-based beer with a lot of good, but heavy and strong heat and spice characteristics that persist through the flavour and palate. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Harris Teeter in Falls Church, Virginia on 23-October-2016 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on 06-January-2017.

Got in a BIF from oline73. 12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 7/22/2016. Pours hazy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big jalapeno pepper, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, mango, lemon/orange peel, light pine, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of jalapeno pepper, juicy citrus/tropical hops, and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big jalapeno pepper, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, mango, lemon/orange peel, pine, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus peel bitterness and light pepper spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of jalapeno pepper, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, mango, lemon/orange peel, pine, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of jalapeno pepper, juicy citrus/tropical hops, and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from bitter/spiciness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/sticky, and slightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 6.9%; with minimal pepper heat as well. Overall this is a very nice pepper IPA! All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of jalapeno pepper, juicy citrus/tropical hops, and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink, with the minimal pepper spice and heat. Has nice presence of pepper flesh flavors in balance with a really juicy hop profile. A very enjoyable offering.

kramer (6578) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2016
Can. Pours a clear copper body with a small fizzy off-white head. The nose is rather heavy on the green pepper, with a caramel malt base. The flavor isnt nearly as bad as I was expecting from the aroma. The caramel sweetness dominates up front, then a slight hop bitterness, then finally some jalapeo pepper on the finish. Not a whole lot of hops in here, but they help tone down the sweetness. Medium bodied and just a bit clingy with fizzy carbonation. Not the biggest fan of pepper beers, but I suppose this one isnt all bad.

Aroma is light with hop zest and full of pepper. Taste is light and refreshing with a little hop, and pepper taste with little to no burn. Finishes nicely.

12oz bottle. There is one way to mess up your Jalapeno IPA, a crappy base IPA. The regular IPA must be a really shabby 90s throwback. Friggin Laurel. Oh wait, two ways, add cilantro. Shab offering. No heat at all. Juicy and earthy. Drinkable, but a really weak offering.
