3.62/5  rDev -7.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Got this for free from my shop. The bottles got recalled over "exploding" but I've been assured this one will be safe; thanks to Ty over at craft. No freshness or bottle date, bomber to a pint glass

Pours a very cloudy golden yellow, 0% transparency. A finger and a half of foam is retaining pretty well at one, okay lacing. No explosion!

Smells of spicy jalapenos, tropical hops- pineapple, mango, lemon lime. Sweet malty base on the finish along with just a touch of alcohol. Peppers are definitely dominant here, I like how they blend with the fruity hops

Taste is pretty with the nose, jalapenos up front, fruit unfortunately isn't as strong, in fact pretty hard to pick out. Malty base again on the finish, a little bit of sweetness being drown by the spice. Again, super dominant peppers

Feel is moderatly spicy, a bit of a thicker body than I'm used to for an apa. Ten minutes after my first sips and I can feel it in my chest. Drink-ability is a bit low, this stuff is interesting but overwhelming

Overall one of the more spicy pepper beers I've had. It's not bad, but I don't know if I'll be able to finish a bomber of it. Pairing it next with some potato soup, might help it go down easier. Really hope it doesn't feel like I had VD next time I urinate

edit- finished the bomber, still afraid to pee

3.75/5  rDev -4.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: A moderately hazy, dark golden beer with a long lasting off-white head. There head is made of fairly compact bubbles.

No indication on the bottle as to when it was brewed, which is nice when you want to know if there are any hops left in your IPA and pale ale.

S: A pretty unusual but pleasent smelling beer with a medium-strong jalapeno aroma over a medium citrus hops aroma. There is a fairly strong herbal and slightly grassy aroma to the beer.

T: A strong pepper spice and a medium-strong hops bitterness dominate with citrus hops flavors supporting. There isn't much in the way of malt flavor or sweetness making for a spicy and bitter balance. The aftertaste is of hops bitterness and a lingering pepper heat.

O: An ambitious beer that isn't all that balanced but that seems to be the point. Chile heat dominates with some citrus hops.

Bomber bottle $11 and change at Noble Malt on the UES of NYC

Pours heavily clouded dark tangarine amber, under a HUGE lite khaki head, that is very slow to fade. Excellent retentive powers exhibited. Super slowly goes to meraingue leaving thick blobs of stickage. Good head-nice looking beer...

Bright and pungent nose of fresh, earthy and flavorful jalepeno peppers.

Agressive on the chili pepper for sure. Nice balanced pale ale riding underneath. Peppers tasting fresh, and vibrantly flavorful. A touch of chili heat, but no more then a tingle on the lips and some warming in the throat and back of the mouth. I love the style when done right, which is not always easy. Well rounded and smooth in the finish. Nicely done.

They have hit the right note here. If you enjoy a well crafted chili beer, this one is a must try

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is very hazy golden yellow in color. It poured with a massive four finger high bright white head that took a long time to die down, leaving a pillow of bubbles in the center of the glass, a collar around the edge and lots of lacing down the sides.
S: Light to moderate aromas of corn tortillas are present in the nose with notes of fresh jalapeños.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the flavors of jalapeño peppers are a little stronger and impart notes of a spicy kick towards the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is exactly as advertised and definitely tastes like spicy nachos. Unlike other beers that use peppers, you don't get all spices and can actually taste flavors of corn.
