On tap at Muddy Waters in Minneapolis, MN. Served in a Surly shaker glass.

Appearance: Color is a straw pale golden yellow with some orange. Moderate amount of bubbles. Solid three fingers of white head with good retention. Leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell: Bready biscuity malts with a quite noticeable scent of hot chili peppers. Nice scent of grass and earthy hops. Hints of cereal grains, caramel, toffee, and crackers with some lemon zest. Fairly floral and yeasty. It essentially smells like the base beer Hell with a big kick of chili peppers. Pretty interesting and intriguing.

Taste: Holy Red Hot Chili Peppers Batman! The peppers come out considerably stronger in the taste with a fairly sharp heat to them. Not overwhelming, but it packs enough heat to compare with a big boozy beer. Although you can still taste the base beer. Behind the peppers is a nice bready biscuit flavor with good hints of cereal grains, crackers, toffee, and caramel. Fairly floral with some hints of earthy hops and grass. Somewhat in your face with the spice but good.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp and pretty spicy but still pretty easy to get down.

Overall: The spice whacks the tongue but this is pretty good if you like extreme flavors. A nice kick to the base Hell beer. Would easily stand up to a spicy Mexican dish.

Served on-draught into a generic tulip at the Republic bar in Minneapolis. Reviewed from notes taken around Thanksgiving 2012.

A: Pours no head whatsoever, just a khaki floater. Body colour is a pale gold. No yeast particles are visible. no bubble show.

Sm: Light orange fruit and floral hops. Tangerine. Pale malts. Passionfruit. Pleasant and inviting. My broken nose detects no chili pepper.

T: Pale malts, tropical acidic fruit, orange, chili pepper (jalapeno), and some tropical passion fruit. Well balanced and executed, with a well handled spicy chili kick. This is what a chili beer should be. I like it.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Excellent carbonation. Good thickness. Suits the flavours well.

Dr: Quite drinkable and enjoyable; not overbearing for a chili beer. That said, I wouldn't want to do a pint of it on a night out with the lads. I'd certainly kick back and watch a film with it or pair it with food. Definitely one of the best chili beers I've had.

B

Hands down one of the best beers for pairing with pizza. A great option for food pairing.
