A: Nice orange color, great retention and lacing on this 2-finger head.
S: Smells different - almost like a peach or other light fruit, and is backed by nice brown sugar grainy malt. Doesn't smell too toasted. Hops are there as backup.
T: Definitely some chipotle pepper in there, which is evident from the taste. This is weird! Light fruity taste under that, as well as a slight grainy kick (but not too grainy). Malt is pretty un-toasty. Lacks on the aftertaste - after swallowing just tastes like a slight bit of grain and water. This could be better - more hops would be nice - a Chipotle IPA!
M: Nice medium body, a bit oily. Non-astringent. Good carbonation.
D: Goes down pretty easily, but the lacking aftertaste slows it down.
Serving type: bottle
