Reviewed from notes, drank on 9/17/12.
Cloudy yellow, slightly orangey brownish tinge, smells like spicy olive juice. Taste is VERY peppery! spicy hot! Not an understatement, cant believe how hot this stuff is. Starts in the beginning of the mouth and works your way to the back of the throat. good for a hot beer but nothing you'd drink on a regular basis, makes a GREAT chili base!!

Man up or go home. This is exactly as advertised. Looks like a nice guy semi cloudy wheat, smells like a pleasant Chili Pepper before you bite it. Taste, be ready, it's not a fake beer. Love it. Not a daily drinker like Rogue chipotle ale. It is honest, real, spicy fun. Enjoy once every month or so.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle.
A: Pale, light head, very clear.
S: Smells like habanero. Very strong pepper flavor. Dangerous.
T: REALLY spicy. Like maybe too much so. This is overwhelmingly full of capsaicin. Can't even taste anything else, save maybe a slight citric acidity.
O: It's just too much. Not bad, but NOT recommended.

murky straw color; no head to speak of. a pool of micro bubbles is floating on the surface- a hallmark of a crummy beer. or a novelty...
very nice chile aroma. i'm not much impressed with novelty beers most of the time but ioccasionally come to appreciate them.
taste is okay. a little bit of heat. a little bit of organic taste and a some chili flavor.
mouthfeel is thin.
i have really enjoyed a chili beer after a session of trying 'serious' beers. i dont know if it's because this one uses wheat in it, but i much more prefer the Cave Creek version over this one. this leaves a 'chemical-ly' aftertaste in my mouth. maybe because i'm making this my first (and probably only) beer of the evening it seems a little off compared to the Cave Creek version.
the heat hasnt been intolerable for me, but maybe that's because there is no regulating a pepper. some are hot and some are not. i guess i just got a 'cool' one.

Thanks to drewone for sharing this one at Wowcoolman's tasting.
Pours a murky orange with a foamy khaki head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt and chile pepper aromas. Taste is much the same with a slightly sour chile flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of chile heat in the back of the throat after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a pretty nice chile flavor.

Poured a finger of head on a hazy, medium straw colored body. Low retention on the head.
The aroma is first a little grain and then a lot of habanero/jalapeno pepper.
The taste is HOT pepper all over the place. Drinking this 22 oz bottle will be challenging.
Crisp texture, moderate carbonation and medium body.
No doubt it's a chili pepper beer; as advertised. It is warm.
Edit: I couldn't finish the bomber. The heat was too much.
