Enjoyed at the Hogtowne Beer Festival. Review is posted from notes. I am basing my review on how this compares to other Chile beers.

A: Half finger head with some lacing on a mildly hazy light crimson body.

S: Full nose with the peppers and spices dominating with some malts as is the case with most of these.

T: True test is in the flavor. This beer attempts to capture many different flavors which are on a broad palate spectrum. The pepper flavor obviously dominates however the red ale malts are present up front with the mango lingering into the finish.

M: very drinkable for the style. The Habañero hits you then fades without an overwhelming after taste making this one nicely drinkable medium body and moderate carbonation.

A- typical red ale color with slight lacing

S- Smell doesn't really come through as to what to expect. Get more chile and malt smell than anything

T- i am a sweet/spicy flavor combo kind of person. Starts off sweet of mango for a view seconds then nice burn of habanero for about double that amount of time after. can understand why some dont like this since the malts and mango are out of balance, but I like having more heat rather than more sweet

M- easily drinkable even on a hot day. not too much carbonation that it makes the chile bothersome

O- my sister and I love this beer, but like i said its my thing. would have better reviews if it was balanced better.
