This one pours a nice cloudy umber color with a thick off white head that is very long lived and is staying for a very long time. The lacing is super thick as well with an amazing fluffy texture.

The nose is spicy, savory and sweet all at the same time. Great malty complexity with lots of floral and fruit notes with some peppery, pine, grass and bread hints are there as well.

The taste is rich with lots going on here. The malt is sweet and dry and the same time. There are distinctive fruity tones with shard sharp dry ones that must be a result of the chilies mixed with malt. The hops are a nice bitter ride from beginning to end that are only enhanced by the mild chili bite. The pepper is sweet and mild. The hop finish is bitter and clean.

The mouthfeel is perfect for this one, just the right amount of richness.

Overall this one is surprisingly good. Most brew masters that try a chili combination often get too much of the negative chili affect without the good flavor. This one blends the hops to chili ratio just right.

Excellent, just got to try it!

I notice the low rating on this one by NB, and I don't understand why? I enjoyed it, and I loved the heat or chili touch of this one.

Visual: Deep orange, slightly hazy. It goes from straw yellow to deep orange.
Aroma: Fruity, citrus combo from hops, spice and yeast aromas. Slight herbal. Very nice citrus tone to this one with a bit of pepper.

Taste: This is fruit and spice at it's best. Not much bitterness to this like a grapefruit. It's like pineapple with hot sauce. A very nice combo.
