Had this beer last night, 2011 printed on bottle (a 2012 release?)
The beer pours a relatively clear golden honey yellow, free from any large sediment, and is topped by a fluffy white head. The nose is dominated by honey/grain sweetness with no familiar notes from the adjuncts I thought would have a greater presence (cactus, chilies, oak, etc). The taste drinks like a honey-forward golden strong ale with a touch of bitterness and is once again not highlighting any of the unusual adjuncts. However, the 9.5% alcohol is well hidden within the beer's sweet, medium bodied, effervescent mouthfeel. I was hoping for a pang of heat on the palate from the green chilies or perhaps a suckling dry finish from the honey, but was left disappointed. This bottle was worth a try, but may have been past its prime for easy detection of most of the regionally sourced specialty items.
