A - Poured a vibrant reddish-yellow with a fiery hue. Looks hot and spicy already. A thin white head leaves lots of lacing around the top of the glass.

S - INCREDIBLE! I've never smelled a beer like this, ever! I am greeted with the usual hop bite and some blackberry sweetness, and then this spiciness I can't even begin to describe. An organic fiery spice of Jalapeno, maybe a shade of Sriracha hot sauce or Tabasco maybe. Definitely unique.

T - Very unique taste as well. There some fruity sweetness and darkness from the blackberries, and an undertone of hellfire. The Jalapeno isn't over-powering, it's subtle, but strong enough to make itself known. There is some mild hoppiness to it, but the blackberry-jalapeno are the main attraction for this brew.

M - Deceptively filling. This beer looks like it's light and wispy, but it does have an intense body to it that makes it stick to your mouth, Very good.

O - A very, very ambitious beer, especially coming from a little old town like Wilkes-Barre, PA! Great beer, hope they make it a mainstay and not just a one time thing, it'd be a shame to never get a chance to have such a creative beer again!

Delicious. Jalepeno hits you in fresh flavor and a nice warming throat effect, not overpowered at all. The let down here for me is the blackberry as I expected it to hit me a little more forward on the palate and not just a tart aspect in the mix. Delicious though so we'll worth the drink and enjoyment.
