Got this for free from my shop. The bottles got recalled over "exploding" but I've been assured this one will be safe; thanks to Ty over at craft. No freshness or bottle date, bomber to a pint glass
Pours a very cloudy golden yellow, 0% transparency. A finger and a half of foam is retaining pretty well at one, okay lacing. No explosion!
Smells of spicy jalapenos, tropical hops- pineapple, mango, lemon lime. Sweet malty base on the finish along with just a touch of alcohol. Peppers are definitely dominant here, I like how they blend with the fruity hops
Taste is pretty with the nose, jalapenos up front, fruit unfortunately isn't as strong, in fact pretty hard to pick out. Malty base again on the finish, a little bit of sweetness being drown by the spice. Again, super dominant peppers
Feel is moderatly spicy, a bit of a thicker body than I'm used to for an apa. Ten minutes after my first sips and I can feel it in my chest. Drink-ability is a bit low, this stuff is interesting but overwhelming
Overall one of the more spicy pepper beers I've had. It's not bad, but I don't know if I'll be able to finish a bomber of it. Pairing it next with some potato soup, might help it go down easier. Really hope it doesn't feel like I had VD next time I urinate
edit- finished the bomber, still afraid to pee

A: The beer is very hazy golden yellow in color. It poured with a massive four finger high bright white head that took a long time to die down, leaving a pillow of bubbles in the center of the glass, a collar around the edge and lots of lacing down the sides.
S: Light to moderate aromas of corn tortillas are present in the nose with notes of fresh jalapeños.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the flavors of jalapeño peppers are a little stronger and impart notes of a spicy kick towards the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is exactly as advertised and definitely tastes like spicy nachos. Unlike other beers that use peppers, you don't get all spices and can actually taste flavors of corn.
