Pours a light copper topped with a finger and a half of white head. Retention isn't great, but is nothing to complain about. Smell is faint but very distinct chipotle peppers. Taste - smooth mild and smoky chipotle pepper taste that is very genuine. The chipotle is the main taste in the beer, but is not in-your-face. There is a very thin malt sweetness at first that comes and then goes, accompanied by a carbonic bite and finally a bone dry semi-bitter finish, but no real hop flavor. High carbonation, bordering on fizzy, but never going over the top. I think this would go great with some BBQ.

I had this bottle at Gullifty's in Bryn Mawr, Pa.
Appearance: Translucent amber brown color, with a couple fingers of head. The head produced good lacing and had decent retention.
Smell: The smell was rather hoppy, kind of what you would expect from something with Chipotle peppers in it.
Taste: Suprisingly, this spicy hop aroma was not followed up with anything in the taste. There was a strong malt background, an apparent hop forground, but without the spice.
Mouthfeel: Kind of stiff.
Drinkability: Certainly a great beer.
Don't drink and review.

22 oz bottle into tulip.

A: a hazy light orange hue. very slightly off-white head on top. O.K. retention and minimal lacing.

S: a real earthy smokey aroma. the aroma is mostly chipoltle peppers and not much else.

T: a little malt, a little bitterness, but not much as far as body flavor. most of the flavor comes towards the finish, which turnes to smokey chipotle peppers. as well as some heat. woohoo

M: very moderate carbonation on a light body.

D: this ale is exactly what it say's it is, a Chipotle Ale. aromas and flavors shout smokey chipotle peppers, which is unique and tasty, however i wish there was more of a body to go with it.
