Pours a cloudy dark honey muck color with a sliver ring of beady foam.

Small, but juicy nose. Citrusy hops with musty tropical esters. Not picking up much bitterness, but there is a low-level calm heat.

Lots of chili pepper on the tongue with some slight pickling. The heat is warm, but very manageable. Hops are muted behind the intense pepper flavor. Very dry, with just a touch of tropical fruit. Citrus notes are beneath everything else, including a sturdy pale ale malt with a crouton toast.

This beer has a mild-to-moderate effervescence. Low bitterness accentuates flavor, but the copiuos amount of chili pepper in the taste only translates to mid-range plus in capsaicin heat. The body is oceany, but there's some opening smoothness.

I thought this beer was off-balanced. Needs more citrus and presence of mango. Even the habanero didn't really translate as habanero, per se.

Sampled on tap at Max's Taphouse (3/11/14)

A: Hazy copper. Decent lacing.

S: Sweetness. Light hops. Peppery.

T: The cask cuts through the heat and leaves only a lingering pepper taste. Not much of an IPA and a bit watery. Low hops.

M: Smooth. Low carbonation. Watery.

O: Maybe the cask killed it but this is a far cry from the best of this type that I've had, Stone's Ruination - Tropical Heat version. Can't wait for the Mint Chocolate Stout.

This is one of the most unique beers I've ever had. Tastes great and leaves some real heat. A lot of beers brewed with pepper taste sort of like pepper, but this is one of the only beers that tastes very much like the pepper and leaves spice burn. For those who love heat, this is an amazing beer!
