i have never had a beer on my mind for so long it haunts my dreams with spicy goodness. It starts as a cool refreshing beer then BAM... the habanero and anaheim pepper flavor com out and it is painfully amazing. i loved it so much i bought 2 growlers to go. A+ to founders on this one...i mean you already are my favorite brewery but you out did yourselves on this one. Bravo!!

Sampled at the taproom.

A - Golden colored with little or no head.

S - Five on the smell. Incredible. You know right away it's something that will knock your socks off.

T - Gave it five for taste as this has an incredible profile. One of the most spicy things I've had beverage wise.

M - Too much spice here for my pallet.

O - Great to sample and try. Congratulations if you're able to stomach an entire glass.

Served from tap into a Raleigh Rare & Vintage Beer Tasting snifter. Poured a golden yellow-orange with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, jalepeno, spice, and earth. The flavor was of sweet malt, spice, earth, pepper, and jalepeno. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. I was really quite surprised to this one make an appearance at this festival but I definitely wasn't going to pass up the chance to try it. I'm glad that I did not. The chilis in this one were really well incorporated with the rest of the brew but on the followthrough they made their presence known with a big kick of heat on your palate. It might be overwhelming for some if I am honest, but I rather enjoyed it. A solid example of the style, but nothing too standout-ish going on unfortunately. Defintely a must try for any true fan of the style out there.
