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.

Pours clear yellow without a head. Nose is freshly cut jalepenos and spicy habenero peppers. Taste opens and finished with a load of spicy jalepenos and hot peppers. Really hot and spicy, bit in a good way. The spiciness detracts from the drinkability...I could t do a full 12oz of this, but would definitely order again in limited quantity.
