Appearance is knocked out of the park! Great fluffy white foam with killer lacing. Brew is Crystal clear with lots of orange and red with light tints of yellow. Stellar.

Papery. Stale. No chili. Earthy and dirty. Where's the balls?

Awful. Stale, earthy, dry, bready, bland, way too subtle. Nice even (high) carbonation, lacking any bite or bitterness. Just and awkward finish with bland sweetness and overall blandness. Heat is high, but not in a spice sense of the word.

I expected way more form CCB and NB on this collab. This brew falls flat and shameful in my book. It went down my drain; it was kinda like a bad batch of Fat Tire that went experimental with out any QC over sight.

22 oz bottle. Pours clear golden orange with a big meringue like white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is very subdued - some sweet malt and mild green pepper. Some perfumey notes come out as it warms.

The flavor is some sweet woody notes and some mild chile spice with a bitter spice finish. The mouthfeel is light bodied and very watery.

Overall, an OK mild chile beer. A bit watery.

Pours a straw yellow with a finger of head. Smells of….nothing? Faint malt and hops, but very very light. Flavor follows suit. This reminds me of a low hop session ale with the slightest touch of earth up front from the peppers. No heat at all. Flavor washes out to almost nothing. Not really sure what the idea was here, but its unremarkable, unmemorable, and falls rather flat. Don’t bother looking for this.
