Bottle shared by Darrell. Thanks man.

Copper orange body with a small off-white head. Aromas of citrus and hops. Spicy peppers emerge more as the beer warms a bit. Jalapeño blends nicely into the flavor profile, rather than overpower. An interesting beer. Fun to try. Best in small quantities.

Was not really impressed with this beer. Had higher hopes as I have liked some of their other beers. The color was nice, there was no real smell that I would expect with a pepper beer. Was not able to pull any of the pepper taste from the beer. As for the IPA beer itself, I would consider it just average.

Picked up a bomber from Total Wine back in late April for $8.99. Best before 7/30/14.

Beer poured golden orange with a nice white head upon the initial pour.

Nose is citrus hop city, quite nice.

Taste starts with a nice bready malt backbone, grapefruit hops form the next layer, and a mild jalapeno chili dominates the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and pretty smooth.

Overall this is a pretty interesting twist on the double IPA style. The base brew is a nice recipe and the jalapeno infusion is done well.

This was poured into a borrowed snifter.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing sticking and then sliding down into the beer gracefully.
The smell had a good combination of sweet citrus to spicy chile, just awesome, really.
The taste was spicy and sweet with a nice light combined spicy/sweet aftertaste and finish.
The mouthfeel was sharp and hot with the chile taking a good effect to my tongue.
Overall, this was my first chile beer to review and it won't be my last. I am looking forward to ABC putting this out again.
