Got this brew at a local beer judging contest that I helped run. QT size bottle...

A: Immediately it appears that the head retention was killed from the oils in the peppers. A hazy golden color with tiny bubbles atop the brew. Ok.

S: It's definitely unique. I get a nice blend of citrus hop and mild vegetal jalapeno. In the middle you get a sweet malt with an almost pickled scent on the back. Decent.

T: I get a strange musty windex flavor upfront with a mild vegetal burn. A grassy taste on the back. Sheesh, all these are flavors you wouldn't want in your beer.

M: Light body with a light carbonation. I grassy dry finish. Eh.

O: All in all, this smelled a lot better than it turned out. This may be a drain pour. Don't bother with this brew.
