Had on tap at Crunchy's in East Lansing.

A: Pours a hazy dark amber with zero head.

S: Damn! Loads of hot peppers in this.

T: Hot peppers right upfront followed by a hint of toasty malt and a hint of caramel. Very spicy on the tongue.

M: Light body with no carbonation.

O: I talked with the brewer and was told they had an issue with the peppers and carbonation.

This is the best spicy beer I've ever had. Also it does an incredible job at separating the jalapeno and red hots flavors. It starts off with the nice taste that jalapenos provide and finishes with all cinnamony red hot flavor. Truly a wonderful concoction.
