Bottle at Gate City Growlers, Greensboro, NC

A: The beer is hazy light amber in color. It poured with a short white head that has good retention properties and hardly died down.
S: Moderate aromas of chili pepper spices are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is packed with flavors of jalapeño peppers along with just a bit of heat.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation along with some heat from the peppers.
O: This beer is very drinkable for a chili beer and has lots of aromas and flavors of chili peppers without that much of the heat. The beer gets a bit hotter as it warms up but still isn't overly hot compared to other beers in the style.

Sarah had.
Taste 5/5. Roasted jalapeño, more complex than fresh
Clean mouthfeel mostly, slightly cloying.
Minimal lacing because it's hot out?
Smell doesnt matter to her
She gives 4.5/5. On break during cornhole

Copper colored with a white head that leaves tons of lacing. Nice sweet malty taste with a bit of citrus and fresh jalapeño. There is only the faintest bit of heat in this one. I was left wanting a bit more but it was still a damn fine tasty beer.

Poured from a bomber that was bottled 8/7/15. A nice golden copper color with bits on what I assume are peppers floating inside. A nice pepper aroma. Chunky mouth feel. The pepper taste matches the aroma but it's not overpowering. A bit of heat but more spicy than hot. Well balanced pepper and beer flavor done very well. I'm glad I tried it and would drink it again if presented the opportunity. Cheers!

L: A brilliant copper amber pour produces a 2” off-white foam column that is moderately persistent and lacy.

S: A little vegetal jalapeño and a hint of heat – moderate and not piercing, some graham cracker, light fruit and a trace of citrus. Fairly clean fermentation character. Malt aromas moderate and hop aromas medium to medium low.

T: Moderate jalapeño heat provides a good accent to graham cracker malt and caramel. The jalapeño heat is moderate to mild and balances a light caramel sweetness. The bitterness is medium but is balanced by the malt sweetness and the jalapeño heat.

F: Medium body and medium carbonation, creamy, some jalapeño warming.

O: The jalapeño heat is there but not over done. The various elements of the beer go very well together.
