A- Semi clear, a little bubbly. Soapy light head that disappears quickly.

S- Sweet tangy, light, fruity.

T- Sweet malt, hop infusion up front, followed with a peppery, spicy lingering grip. Weird, hot, perfume aftertaste that lingers. Not crazy, like the ingenuity/creativity.

M- Super smooth gliding down to the gullet. very nice.

O- Definitely original. Habaneros in a beer is a creative way to get even. good job!

Served in a pokal

L - It is amber in color with golden highlights. It has an inch of beige head that leaves some lacing.

S - It has a tropical and citrus fruit smell. I get a hint of the pepper.

T - The taste is loaded with tropical fruit up front. That morphs into some citrus with a grapefruit taste. The finish has a spike of heat. The pepper is just enough to let you know that it is there with no lingering burn or buildup of heat.

M - Medium

O - I hated the first one I poured a few days ago, but that was after several beers that night. This is my first taste of the day, and I have to admit that it is pretty good. The papaya gives it an IPA-like taste. So, to me, this beer tastes like a habanero IPA. The heat is not imposing and makes a nice addition to this beer.
