Single finger head on a cloudy golden orange body with excellent lacing. Aroma is a nice combo of habanero and chili spice with hints if tart citrus and earthy hops. Flavors are very spicey, actually dominating with some citrus and earthy hops getting through but definitely overly spicey. Smokiness is well stated early but overwhelmed by the peppers. Medium body and light to moderate carbonation. Definitely need to like this style of chili IPA as its very spicey and therefore mostly unidimensional.
