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. (1,378 characters)

Had this at the Surly taproom in Minneapolis.
Nice golden color. White head that faded. Streams of carbonation. Looked beautiful in the winter sun streaming through the glass wall.
I must be sensitive the pepper taste. At first the malt came through followed by the pepper. It lingered and IMO over took the beer.
It had a slight oiliness to the mouth feel.
Overall, my wife, who is a miller lite fan, and tells me she is really trying to like "my" beers, loved this one. I ordered her a 8oz Hell. She ordered a 12oz Firey Hell with the meal. (548 characters)

On tap @ brewpub
A-clear dark yellow with a slim very white head
S-lager yeast and malt with a slight smell of pepper
T-slight hops with a more pronounced pepper taste it compliments this lager and in no way overpowers bready malt and caramel finish
M-crisp with just a touch of pepper heat
O-thought this was very good not a big pepper fan but i liked this one its worth a try fir sure (389 characters)
