- Timberline series. Anaheim, Fresno, Serrano, Jalapeno, & Habanero peppers.

A: A fizzy, dirty white head is slightly bubbly atop, and was quick to dissipate to a polished surface. Tangerine orange with a medium translucent quality ahs a misty haze of suspended floaties. Like the extra suspended material which saves this from a below average visual, most likely peppery remains.

S: Jalapeno and habenero peppers get noticed, light to medium intensity, no where near thier Ghost face killa levels.

T: Flavor had a quick sweet peppery start, some warming of heat moves in, Jalapeno and habanero come late on the swallow with a distinct character. Again managable, not over the top heat intesity like thier ghost face killa. I noticed the serrano, has a spicy mixture of sweet malt and heat that lingers with a gentle conclusion.

M: some heat, spicy and warm pepper with a light to medium body. The heat grows the longer you hold on glowing the inner cheeks with a kindering warrmth.

O: Overall drinkable, nice blend of peppers, a little sting on the backend, warming glow of peppers that make you aware but not uncomfortable. Its a chili pepper beer, plain and simple, it brings a modest display of heat range, limited range of complexity beyond the peppers and a novel approach that is somewhat decent but may fall a bit short of good.

Twisted Pine Billy's Chilies

Appearance: straw golden with a large head initially that dissipated into nothing.

Smell: sweet peppers!

Taste: a blend of many peppers that goes down with a spice burn. There is a small hint of malts. It's actually fairly difficult to keep discerning flavors after drinking some of it.

Mouthfeel: smooth yet burning.

Overall:
This is one of the oddest flavor medleys I've had for a beer. It is spicy and unique. It is also like salsa -without the chunks of course. Did I mention the burning?
