The body was clear, orange amber, and the carbonation was lively, forming a two finger thick head in the tulip glass. The aroma was very tropical, reminding me of both mango and passion fruit. The taste was layered, with the first impression being a weaker IPA like herbal hop presence, but then the hints of chili peppers poked out. The finish had a bit of vanilla beans in it. The beer did feel lacking in the texture, as it felt a little watered down and over attenuated. I would have liked it to have some sticky feel to it, as it would have med the flavors linger better. I was happy I tried this once, but it’s not something I would go out of my way to find again. Sledutah (7752) - Utah, USA - DEC 14, 2013
22oz bottle at The Beerhive BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Clear golden with a medium sized off-white head and some lacing. Aroma was floral, caramel, dusty and earthy. Flavor was the same, malty, floral, herbal and finished bitter
Not a bad beer at all, but not what I thought it would be. No noted peppers or heat.
Bomber bottle and served in tulip: Pours a nice golden hue with a lasting frothy head and very good lacing. Unlike the Stone Crime I had before, this is far more drinkable and far less over the top. Has a moderate chili pepper heat balanced slightly with a citric hop character undertone. There is a touch of cedar planks notes and biscuity malts. Alas when using Anaheim chilies it is also a tad vegetal and herbal which is it major downfall. Nice but somehow still left wanting more. Gription79 (2891) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber, thanks to Craig. Tastes like an ESB. There is a ton of malt and bitterness rounds it out. There is an earthy character, maybe from the peppers. Dogbrick (13389) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2013
On draught at the Cigar City tap room. The beer pours a clear pale copper color with a medium off-white head that dissipates gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, spices and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, chili peppers and roast malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy and subtle pepper aftertaste. Decent overall.

Bottle. Crystal clear golden hued pour with an eggshell hued head that lasts. Aromas are earthy, lightly fruity, dried hay and spices, medium toasted malt. Flavors are of earthy notes, slightly musty, really subtle heat, black pepper, mildly vegetal, cedar, fruity yeast. Medium lively carbonation, pretty dry. Odd beer. gravit8 (12) - Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Very decent and drinkable. The details of my tasting out of a bomber late one night are hazy, but I recall a distant memory of heat, just a faint hint of it, with a nice, light sweeter malt texture and clean finish. The bottle went quite rapidly. suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Caramel colored pour. Small off-white head. Not much lacing. Smell is flowery. Some malt notes and a vegetal presence. Taste is a bitter malty flavor with some flowery notes in it. Not much spice or heat. Sweet finish with a bit of astringency. Okay. boisebeerguy (212) - boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 11, 2013
This beer was a dissapointment. All I could taste was a slight pepperyness and that was it. Nothing else really came out in this beer. AxlLives (288) - Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2013
22 oz bottle - pours clear orange yellow with large white tan head, lasting and bubbly. Immediate aromas are of sweet fruit and cedar, with yeasty goodness mixed in. Taste is all citrus fruit, little bit of spice and heat, slight smoke. Juicy finish. Decent nit spectacular. Here comes the heat!
