4.14/5  rDev +13.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: light orange color. with perfect clarity. almost no head but just a touch of foamy that quickly fades to nothing

Smell: hit up front with tropical fruits. not all a bitter hop but some hoppiness as well. slightly sweet malts

Taste: slight fruity sweetness. very tropical. then a blast of both hops and habeneros. pale malts in the background. very different from the smell but i like it better.

Mouthfeel: pretty light but not super drinkable due to pepper heat. some bitterness along with a building heat

Overall: probably one of the best pepper-pales i have had. good complexity and nice balance between bitter sweet and heat

Serving type: bottle

look: 3 | smell: 5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Had a clear light brown color with a small white head. Aroma is a pleasant sweet fruit. Taste weighs heavily towards the spicy heat of the habanero. There’s a touch of sweet fruit, but I can’t help but feel a stronger fruit taste may have made for a more interesting contrast to the heat. I enjoy this, though I’m also a fan of spicy beer.

3.8/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Chill-hazed gold in color, with a relatively short head of bright, white foam.
Aroma-Subtle fruity hop note.
Taste-Pale malt, fruity hops, warmth of habaneros in the finish. Warmth of peppers wafts to the surface, but is counterpointed nicely by the fruity hops. Pleasantly warming, not overdone. A great match for some fish tacos or pulled-pork nachos.
