Great beer for those who are adventurous. the jalapeno was quite a surprise - i enjoy spicy foods, so I was anxious to try. beer did not disappoint.
Draft at Boston location. Pours a hazy yellow color with a white fizzy head. Nose is straw and a very preasant jalepeno note. Palate is lively and crisp. Flavor is somewhat sweet followed by a biting heat of jalepeno that gives it a nice touch of flavor without over powering. angrybeerman (259) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 25, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 Got this in a brewpub in Boston. Had a nice colour with a decent head. No real flavor except for the spice. I like spicy food though and this was sufficient in that regard. If you don’t like spicy food leave this one. If, on the other hand, you do like spices then be my guest. PilsnerPeter (3049) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2009
Tap at the Brewpub (Boston location): Golden pour with good clarity and a white ring of head. Peppery juice aroma- straight jarred jalapeno resins and oils- nothing else. Flavor is the same- offering nearly no character but a burning sensation. I am a fan of spicy foods, but this offers no flavor, rather just a homogeneous burn from the pepper juice. No malt nuance or qualities of the base beer. BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Draught @ Bethesda: Pale golden yellow with a small, frothy white head. Aroma is dominated by fresh jalapeño pepper, smells so potent and fresh that I’m hesitant to take a first sip for fear of the heat. There’s also a hint of toasted malt and grain in there as well. Light, crisp body, medium forced carbonation. At first taste I’m quite surprised - the Jalapeño flavor is not dominant at all, nor is it overwhelmingly hot (like previous chili beers I’ve tried). Instead the Jalapeño adds a nice light fruity pepper flavor, with a hint of greens and very mild heat to the lightly sweet grain/toasted malt notes. Finishes clean and crisp, no off flavors, with a slight hint of fruity(not spicy) pepper. Very drinkable (I had a 2nd glass). I talked to the brewer and this was simply 1/2lb of diced Jalapeños added to a keg of their light, conditioned for about 48hrs.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Extreme Beer Fest 2004: Clear yellow with a small white head. Strong green jalapenos in the aroma, watery texture, deep burning flavor. Certainly not everyone's idea of a good beer, but this is a good spicy hot beer. dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Extreme Beer Fest '04, do I ever hate jalepeno beers,but none the less... Golden in color with a small white head.Jalepeno aroma.Burning acidicness in the flavor. vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 19, 2004
Extreme Beer Fest Boston 2004: Has a clear golden color and jalapenoes smell. Taste is kind of light malts, but the finish hits you with the jalapenoes and a lingering spiciness. Overall this would be great with Mexican food, but man talk about heartburn, good stuff... OldGrowth (3474) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JAN 18, 2004
Draft @ extreme beer fest'04: Nice nose Jalapenoes and toasted malt. Kinda corn bread. Clear golden color. Nice mix of jalapenoes and malts. Again like drinking a liquid corn bread. I seem to get a little cheddar in there too. Very drinkable, leaves a great spice on the tounge. Can see why Scott won award for this. If you live in the area you have to try this sometime.
