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.

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.
