Bomber poured into a tulip glass. The color of dark reddish honey with a moderate amount of white head. Aroma is rather tart, vinous, and fruity (apricot, cherry, citrus), with a subtle undercurrent of caramel and pine resin. Indeed, this is a rather hoppy brew, dry grapefruit rind and pine needles on the palate, along with an array of interesting fruit flavors ... Cherry, raisin, and yes, chillies, although these register more as bell peppers rather than the hot stuff per se. A subtle heat does build over time. Body is quite light and well attenuated, a little caramel malt heft is apparent, and the carbonation is fairly high. Finishes dry and hoppy with an ongoing fruity note: Dried fruit roll up, woody understated pine bough, gooseberry, and a lingering wildflower honey sweetness. I was somehow expecting a bit more from such a vaunted duo of collaborators. More from the malts I suppose, more body, and less of a homogenized fruity character. Oh well. The chillies do come through in an understated albeit pleasant fashion.

Starts off a bit malty but half way thru the bomber the magic of Cigar city brewing appears overall a good brew

Appearance - Pours a clear copper with a finger of bubbly white head.

Smell - bready caramalts, yeast, hint of citrus hops, mild aroma of spiciness.

Taste - Similar to the aromas, however, a pleasant moderate spiciness from the chilies comes through. There is also a nice slight woodsy flavour.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a pleasant spiciness from the chilies and a tad sticky.

Overall - An enjoyable chile beer that isn't overpowered by the spiciness of chilies. The spiciness was just enough to let the other supporting ingredients shine as well. Looking forward to seeing the next batch of Lips of faith series come into Cowtown.
