Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
We took our pilsener and “dry-hopped” it with roasted jalapenos. The result is a well-balanced beer with a very intoxicating peppery-type aroma, great jalapeno flavor, and just a bit of lingering heat.

This is a must if you like pepper beers. Light, crisp, slight heat. Do not hesitate to try if you find it.

The beer pours and oranging gold with a little head of medium sized, white bubbles. The head leaves little to no lacing. In body the beer is slightly hazy, though clean and free of particles, and is full of lazy bubbles working their way to the head. On the nose, the beer smells clean and peppery, like the flesh of a jalapeno fresh out of the garden. Light bready malts also appear lightly in the nose. On the tongue, the beer tastes spicy and softly sweet with light touches of acidity on the sides of the cheeks. In flavor the beer tastes of fresh jalapeno, spicy and fleshy with light vegetal skin notes that are beautiful on the tongue. Light, cracker malt can also be felt as a cream on the sides of the taste, balancing and cooling the spicy flavors. The finish brings the largest touch of bready malt, but the jalapeno flavors return in the aftertaste and give a nice lingering spice to the mouth alongside a slight plastic flavor. In the mouth, the beer feels on the light side of medium in body with a light jelling on the tongue. Carbonation is softer, but bites at the beginning of the sip. After the beer leaves the mouth is left wet with spice and acid canceling saliva. Overall this beer is refreshingly unique, with some awesome pepper flavors that would do amazingly with food. The spicy flavor actually dies off as you drink more of it, which is too bad, but overall this is one of, if not my favorite pepper beer with some great, fleshy, pepper flavors. A beer to try for sure.

Presentation; 2L swingtop growler, fresh from the brewery and split with a friend. Poured into a Sam Adams pint glass and servfed chilled.

Appearance: Cloudy pale yellow in color. Pours a bit of a fizzy white head.

Aroma: The jalapenos are really strong here. Really peppery and with a bit of spice. The peppers here feel fresh, and not roasted. It comes across as a very dry heat.

Taste: Jalapeno peppers upfront. Not really spicy as all considering the burst of pepper flavor here. I really enjoy that this does not shy away from strong pepper falvors here. There is some slight hop bitterness and pale malt sweetness in there as well.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and crisp. Works really well to keep this from getting too dry.

Overall, a really unique and bold jalapeno beer. I really enjoyed this take. Despite all the pepper flavors throughout, this manages to stay away from being overly spicy. I definitely enjoyed this.
