Pours a slightly hazy copper amber color with a pillowy light tan head that fades into a solid sheet of lace. Nose is sweet malt and smoked peppers. Taste begins with sweet caramelized toasted malt followed by smoky charcoal and a final spicy chipotle kick. The heat is definitely noticeable but is not overpowering. Overall this brew incorporates the smoky chili pepper flavor very well. Id love to pair this with some barbequed brisket.

a: pours cloudy dark copper with sturdy one-finger head.
s: earthy smoked pepper on top of sweet malt and a bit of hop spice.
t: sweet pale ale taste for a second until the chipotle kicks in, which warms slightly and brings a great smoky taste.
m: thick but smooth, the chipotle leaves an earthy film.
d: delicious well-balanced mix of spice and sweet, it can be a refreshing break during a night of strong beers.

Appearance: Poured with some foamy off white head that dissipated to a thin layer leaving some lacing at the top of my glass. The beer is a pretty translucent orange gold.
Smell: Roasted malt, roasted spicy pepper, very small amount of caramel sweetness
Taste: Roasted malt, some hop bitterness, roasted pepper, small spicy pepper flavor, then finishes with a small sweet malt.
Mouthfeel: Starts with some carbonation, medium bodied, small tingle from the bit of hops, then turns to a spice tingle. Mouth gets hot for a moment then finishes smooth.
Overall: Very easy to drink, the spicy pepper aspect is pretty light so most people will enjoy this beer. Nice sweetness to balance the spiciness. I could easily have a couple of these, especially while eating some good mexican food.

Growing numerous varieties of peppers this year, when I saw this on the shelf at my beer store I knew I had to have it.
A: Very nice golden amber color with 2 fingers worth of head that simmer down to a very nice veil of lace that sticks to the sides of the glass well and remains for most of the way down.
S: Excellent floral hops with alot of distinct earthy "garden" aromas. Reminds me of weeding in the garden and smelling all the various vegetable plants and soil smells. Also a deep malty sweetness. Very intriguing.
T: Wow. Such a surprise on the palette and senses. Sweetness of the malt at first that instantly gives way to an incredible smokey flavor from the chilis. Reminds me of bacon wrapped jalapenos without the heat. Makes way to some floral hoppyness and a medium bitterness. I can feel an ever slight amount of heat as well, its so strangely unique. After tastes consists of slight bitterness and a hint of grain/wheat.
M: Average carbonation works well with the hop level and the smokeyness. Leaves a crisp clean taste and moderate ABV isn't noticeable at all.
O: Crazy game that is played on the senses. Flavors that should be coming from food but instead are sipped and a mild heat make this a very unique beer. Not your usual beer style but def worth the price of the bottle and worth trying.
