a weird one. maybe this is one of those operations that only excels at the strange brews, but their barrel stuff is dope as it gets and their regular cans are pedestrian, its almost sad. this lightly brassy heady brew is all red pepper. truly a hoppy capsicum experience, with very little else but raw red pepper and hops. malt is irrelevant and generic, and i would be upset about it, except its real palatable and tasty honestly. may be unintentional, but it drinks nice and is a heck of a food beer. almost even has that roasted pepper thing going on. medium bodied but made lighter with bubbles, its better than i am making it sound. where does red pepper come from though, its so odd and not all the way awesome, but its certainly one of a kind. i dont know about calling it an ipa either, but thats another conversation...

edit: they either changed this beer a lot, i had a messed up can, its enormously better on tap, or i was wasted when i consumed it haha. had a few pints on tap at jakes this weekend and was really happy with it, crisp and clean and really drinkable but super pungent on the northwest hops, distinct and fresh as can be. i have to bump up a few scores to reflect how outstanding the draft version was, maybe average them out. really really fantastic beer, amazed to read my review of the can. has the recipe changed?
