A - Honey orange with some haze.
S - Wheat and jalapenos. They don't joke around about it being a jalapeno ale.
T - Just the same, a decent wheat ale, moderate malt sweetness and nuttiness, but with nice ripe jalapeno flair. Heat builds, but never becomes overwhelming. Has the heat of a "hot" salsa you'd buy from a major brand (meaning mild for heat-seekers, myself included).
M - A bit thin, could use a bit more body.
O - I love this beer for many reasons, but the biggest one I should comment on is that Bend ACTUALLY made a jalapeno-forward ale, like in the name. Whenever I see beer with "peppers added," I am disappointed time and time again by the lack of said peppers. This delivers and sates your thirst for a pepper-ed ale.
No, this beer isn't for everyone, but if you are into heat or peppers and want something new, this is a winner.

So as a disclaimer, I'm not a big fan of spicy beer. This could be why I disliked this beer so much.
I bought this beer off a whim but I couldn't finish it. I took two sips, gave one sip to my dad and poured the rest down the sink. The appearance wasn't bad. But the jalapenos overpowered almost every other aspect of this beer. They dominated the aroma, the taste and especially the mouth feel-- leaving my palate hot and uncomfortable.
This is the only jalapeno beer I've ever had. If you like jalapeno beers, then you should disregard this review and give it a try. I don't mean to bash it because I'm sure there are people out there who enjoy this type of beer. I, however, am not one of those people.
I would not recommend this to a friend-- unless I was trying to prank them.
