You get that dark yellow and orange hard night of partying urine color with this one. Peppers keep head from really forming or sticking around. Aroma is somewhat hoppy, the peppers kinda edge it out.

Heat melds with hops well here. Seems less thick because of the heat in this. Still bitter, somewhat fruity. I'd buy a six pack if it was in that format. A little less hot than habanero sculpin.

Looks the usual dark orange pour of Ruination with the thin white head 1/8" on the top (never bottom). The addition of the spice and mango seemed to dull the hop aroma a little on this one.

Peppers and heat are less than say habanero Sculpin or ghost face killah, they had a solid place in the beer, complimentary if you will. LEans bitter. Would drink if bottled.

Ah a beer from back when the Miami Heat were winning championships. Feel feel feel my HEAT indeed.
