Appearance: solid orange color. A finger of a white head that fades quickly. Very hazy and opaque. Quite a bit of sediment.
Smell: strong chiles, tropical fruit and some citrus. Not much else to it, but that doesn't mean it's bad.
Taste: opens with a hint of citrus, quickly transitions to a pepper taste but not one I am familiar with (probably Fresno chiles) and ends with a nice kick of tart tropic fruits.
Mouthfeel: a nice balance mixture of bitter, peppers and tart. No heat but not quite refreshing.
Overall: a very good and unique beer. Lots of strong flavors, I wish I got to taste it fresher though. Definitely worth a try for pepper lovers and hop lovers.

i am not drinking this as i write, i had it last night and today wanted to just add a small note about it. i live in chicago and for the last month i have been buying almost exclusively bombers from pipeworks to try. at this point i am actively trying to find a beer from them i don't like. i was pretty sure this would be it. and ... it isn't. this beer is great. bizarre but great. just the intense smell of peppers and heat along with the tropical sweetness makes you think that this will be a scorcher but somehow it isn't. you do get all the flavor of the hot peppers but an almost complete absence of heat, just a small tickle in the back of your throat. and it blends perfectly with the tropical fruit, both from the hops and the passionfruit. i am at the point that i can say if it's from pipeworks, buy it.
