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

$2.49 for a 12oz bottle @ BevCo. "Pale ale fermented with papaya and habaneros provide an ideal mixture of pleasure spiked with pain". No specs per the bottle or website. Pours out to a brilliantly clear burnt orange, forming a small head with poor retention and absent lacing. Carbonation is moderate, about 2.5 carbs or so. The nose is fantastic...fresh juicy papaya sitting on top of crystal malt sweetness and some nice fruity yeast esters, with some subtle notes suggesting something better to come. Mouthfeel is smooth and soft with a medium body. Very crisp and clean. The taste is fantastic...a recap of the aroma well balanced with a mild to moderate bitterness and some mild, but noticeable, and pleasant heat that gradually develops after you swallow. Has classic yeast esters of WLP001 or Wyeast 1056. Goes down very easy. No appreciable off flavors or aromas, although this one definitely gives me heartburn. I don't think I'd buy a 6 pack of this myself, due to the heartburn, but if you like a bit of heat, you should definitely try it. I haven't had a beer quite like this before.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4

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!
