Bottle. Pours a clear light orange color with a bubbly white head. Aroma has a fat chile aroma, spicy and slightly smoked. Roasted chiles. Flavor is peppery, spicy with a very warm mouthfeel. Tingles, with a nice roasted chile flavor. This is pretty nice!

A: Honey gold, slightly cloudy. Thin head,
S: Freshly opened Jalapeno with some spice. A hint of the malts and some floral notes later on.
T: Jalapeno, malt then then the heat along with the lingering jalapeno, then just heat that just stays.
O: It’s not a bad beer. I can handle hot stuff, but I could see how someone might not like this due to the heat factor.

That has a very nice color and does not really smell of jalapenos. You as soon as you take a sip the pepper flavor comes out and hits the back of your throat. It has a very nice body. And the pepper really accents it. I would actually buy a six pack of this. ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2014
The one thing that stood out to me the most about this beer is how much jalapeño meat came through in the flavor. Alot of times, with pepper beers that is, you get a decent amount of capsaicin coating the lips and throat for a delicious burn, but you don’t always get much flavor from the actual pepper itself. Most of the time it depends on the style and the varieties of pepper used. And, in my opinion, when a brewer makes a lighter-bodied ale it’s sometimes awkwardly balanced. I think this turned out very well-balanced. The body itself is not too light, and not too heavy, but just thick enough to support both the flavor of the pepper flesh and the effects of the spice. There’s no doubt that the jalapeños are the featured ingredient, and they take front stage. Nothing’s getting in their way, but rather complimenting. A strong, but comfortable burn hits the throat first, and only after a third of the bottle does the burn hit the lips. And when it does it seems to do so simultaneously with an almost crystallized sugar-type sweetness. Although it’s incredibly easy to drink, I wouldn’t suggest drinking more than one of these at a time. The meaty thickness of the peppers is persistent, and although it’s somewhat light-bodied, it does weigh you down. Besides... those of us that have to watch our acid intake should always remember the rule of moderation. batsnapper (5) - Natchez, Mississippi, USA - MAR 24, 2014 does not count
The jalapeño comes on strong early and hits the back of the throat. Not too hot. Just there.

Deel hazy copper color. Off-white foamy head is dense and stays thick. Aroma is strong.jalapeno. flavor is strong jalapeno pepper taste with a medium hotness. Pretty delicious. Crispy34 (496) - Texas, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Draft. Peppery aroma that lends itself to darkness. Appearance is a dark bronze with a white head. Taste is a spicy ale. You get plenty of jalapeño spice, but not too much. That's about it. Palate is spicy... Imagine that. Overall, a decent beer. Not too hot with good spice.

pours a golden color and small white head. this beer smells and tastes exactly like jalapeno...but its terrible. ben4321 (6735) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Location: Draft at BRC Gastropub, 12/5/13
Aroma: The aroma has some pepper/spice, caramel malts, and a bit of earth
Appearance: It pours a hazy golden-orange color with an off-white head
Flavor: This one has a nice pepper flavor, with the pepper is present, but not overpowering
Palate: The body is medium with a pretty decent mouthfeel to it
I thought this was a solid jalapeno beer. There’s enough balance here to keep the spice from overpowering. I enjoyed this. I like the in-balance feel of the spice.
