COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like me, this pale ale has a quick fuse. Brewed with Jalapeños and Citra hops to impart a flash of heat followed by gentle and harmonious hoppy goodness. Don’t be scared. oxox Kristin

LSAT Freedom Trip #54. Bomber from Wegman’s Lake Manassas. Slightly hazy amber, thin fizzy head. Aroma of jalapeno and pale malt. Taste matches. The peppers come across as fresh. Medium bodied, mild lingering heat, decent balance.

Bottle from Wegmans fairfax. Pours golden with a thin white head. Leaves trace lacing. Solid Jalapeño notes on the nose but not much on the tongue. There's some bitterness on the finish. It's not as flavorful or as balanced as I'd hoped. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - pours gold with a white head. I’m not getting a lot of the jalapeño, but it’s a solid ale.

Sampled at the brewery, pours a hazy orange with some lacing, white head. Nose has a ton of fresh/raw jalapeno pepper, some green bell pepper, orange, lime, a little caramelized veg. Flavor is surprisingly subtle with the heat, green bell peppery, a little celery, mild malt. Finishes crisp with just a little pepper burn.

Draft pour at Meridian Pint for their DC debut event. Poured a slightly cloudy copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma was notes of light jalapeno notes, no real heat though. Flavor had nice subtle jalapeno notes, light malt character, touch of earthy hops. Pleasant.
