12oz bottle. Pours a hazy, small particulate filled, yellow body with a thin, off-white head that dissipates immediately and leaves virtually no lacing. Aroma is pretty cool. Lots of red pepper, jalapeno, and other chile peppers. I get some lime hops in there too with some corn salsa and pale malts. Flavor is more the same. Lots of lime salsa and spicy peppers. Some very thin wheats and pale malts before this finishes with a moderate, pleasant heat that leaves a medium length aftertaste. The body was very watery and thin with no carbonation. Overall, a nice smelling and tasty beer. The peppers are distinct and hot, but not too hot like some chile beers. Now...if the appearance didn’t resemble a dehydrated drunk’s piss and the body was anything but watery, this would be a great beer. Oh well...

Appearance: Pours a clear gold with almost no head.Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Aroma: Jalapeno potato chips.
Taste: Jalapeno potato chips with subtle heat.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, scratches the back of my throat.
Overall: Fun, ten times better than Cave Creek, but still nothing you would want more than a sip of for giggles.
Bottle courtesy of jbye4334. Pours gold with an off white head. Smells of peppers, dry malt. Tastes of spice, pepper heat, caramel, some vegetal hints. Warming pepper feat on the finish. jthg (86) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Wow. What an amazing beer! First, the beer greets you in the nose with a wonderful pepper aroma. Correction, slaps you in the face with a SPICY peppery aroma. And, this is coming from a slightly cloudy pale beer. The beer enters the mouth smooth, with a bit of pepper - not as much as the aroma would let on and leaves the throat with a bit of heat.
This is truley a beer for hot pepper fans. There isn’t malt or hops for these peppers to hide behind!
If you don’t like peppers or don’t think that peppers have any place in beer, there is some simple advice a sage friend of mine said: don’t buy a pepper beer and expect it to taste like something other then peppers. The peppers in this beer come through amazingly well! daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Mar, should I say thanks or F#@% you! Gold pour. Aroma is all green jalapeno, green pepper and those diced green chilies from a can. Flavor is the exact same as the aroma. Burns the throat a little. Why the fuck do people make spicy beers? What the hell?

Bottle from Kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours a orange/gold with small white fizzy head. Aroma does jump up at you, faint smoke, mixed chillies. Flavor has a hint of ehat to it and flavor of smoked chillies. Thank God this wasn’t a re-creation of Cave Creek. Would go great with some quesadilla’s and tacos. Actually tastes like food. potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Draught. Not my style. pale yellow with thin white head. Aroma is Chillies dominated. Flavor is also but with light hops is noticed later in flavor. dnstone (3707) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Smells of green pepper and jalapeno. A light, piss gold color Spicey flavor? Jalapeno-esque but without the pickle taste of other chili beers. A bit like drinking nachos haha. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 28, 2009
Tap at brewery during GABF 2009.
Pours a weak yellow with a nose of jalepeno kettle chips. Flavor is crisp and tangy jalepeno chili with just enough bite in the finish to keep things respectable. Tingly but watery mouthfeel. Wow, another good chili beer. Surprisingly tasty.
