Bomber with standard pressure-cap served in a shaker pint glass in high elevation Libby, Mont. Reviewed live. No best-by date.

A- Ridiculous head. Six-finger thick with rapidly eroding head. It's gone in less than a minute. I did not expect that. Light golden-colored body with high clarity and heavy carbonation.

S- Jalapenos. That's pretty much it. Smells more like nachos than beer.

T- Jalapenos. Spicy, sweet and hard to drink. Not because it tastes bad, but because it is so spicy.

M- Light bodied. Not much more to say.

O- This is a fireball in a glass. I may not be giving it its fair shake. That being said, it's difficult to drink and spicy. Unless you are a chili fiend, avoid this beer.

Writing this as I drink. Well it's not the most appetizing looking beer on Earth. I poured vigorously from the bottle but only got a thin scum of a head. The beer itself appears a hazy dull orange. The smell is definitely very spicy, almost to the point of inducing me to cough, but also slightly moldy and off putting. How to put it... It's almost like smelling an old spice jar that once contained chilli powder. The essence of the spice remains and but is no longer fresh. That's kind of what this smells like. The lack of freshness also comes out in the taste, but it is not as off putting, at least not at first. The heat of the jalapenos is pretty intense. Definitely getting a nice tingling burn around the lips and down the throat. Would that qualify as mouthfeel? Going to mark it down as such anyway. Kind of invigorating actually. Endorphins are on the rise! I am almost feeling a bit lightheaded. The lingering moldiness is making a come back in the after taste as I near the bottom of the glass. Not the best pepper/chile beer I've tried, but definitely one of the most intense.

I love heat and spicy peppers, so this beer was an awesome find. It is hard to rate the mouth feel because of the heat had an effect on how it felt in the mouth as a beer, but I loved the heat it gave off. I picked up on a road trip thru mt Shasta, and really wish I could find more of it in my area.
