Procured a bottle through a beer swap with joemcgrath27, thanks bud!

A - Pours a slightly hazy golden brown, thumb of light fluffy off-white head with decent retention and some fine sticky lacing.

S - Very unique. Some lemon citrus hops come through amid a powerful pepper and rye scent.

T - Again, a very unique offering. The hops are more subdued than implied by the nose. Oily peppers take over with a rye kick that perks up your taste buds. The lemon citrus hops do linger more on the finish with some caramel malts also poking through.

M - No complaints here. Medium bodied which goes down smooth.

D - My first experience with the chipotle ale, and it was one to remember. The flavours are very unique, and I was surprised how much it reminded me of a rye beer. The peppers definitely add a unique kick, and I would highly recommend that everyone takes this one for a ride.

A- Nice hazy red coper colored beer. Finger width of light frothy foam.

S- The smell of the smoked chipotle chiles is very much alive and well. It smells good with the bread smell I'm also getting.

T- Tastes like more like a smoked paprika with a tiny touch of spice added in. This will go well with my hot wings for the night.

M- I was hoping for more spice to kick the tongues ass. I've heard a lot of people say it is too spicy for them to drink. I must have got the wimpafyed version.

D- Easy to drink, the smoked flavor is good and unique compared to other smoked beers.

I poured this beer from a 22oz. bottle. It had a 2 finger foamy fizzy head on top of a nice brown amber color body. The aroma is very nice of chili peppers and carmel notes. The taste is nice and smokey, nice malty taste on the back of the tongue. This beer has a nice mouth feel and is very drinkable.

A: straw colored with a touch of red, this brew has plenty of lacing with moderate head.

S: the bouquet is strong and consists solely of smoke.

T: this brew has a delightfully smokey flavor, but little in the way of pepper or heat. Also, little malt or hops make it through to you.

M: this ale delivers a medium body with a frothy texture.

D: I wish there was a bit more to this brew. While the chipotle was nice, it demanded something more. Something to complement it. Most of the flavor was smoke, but not to the same caliber as their Smoke Ale. otherwise, this is a deliciously unique brew.
