Color of this beer is a darker gold/very light amber. Sort of toward a traditional IPA.

Aroma is fun but previews what I think happens to the taste. This says with chillies, mint, and mango and I do get those but the aroma is very mashed up. No one dominates the other. So it smells good for sure.

Taste I just don't get the mint and mango much and any heat you might expect isn't there. It tastes solid otherwise but if you put three ingredients on the bottle they would be expected to be dominant in the final roll down the tongue.

Feels light and bubbly on the tongue. Doesn't linger much and finishes well.

Overall very tasty but again, want more of the three specified ingredients than what I got with it.

22oz bottle served in a large snifter. BB 31/01/18.

Pours a fairly clear, moderately dark amber color with a fairly large fluffy head and moderate carbonation. Smell is juice -- very ripe mango or papaya.

Taste clearly has chilies in it, but not dominant -- clearly has mango in it, but not dominant,questionably has mint in it, but not dominant. I think hops would have taken a bigger part if it was fresher (I don't know how long they claim the shelf life of this beer is, so I don't know how old it actually is). The result right now is...not bad. But kind of a mish mash with nothing taking the lead and not much bright about it.

Mouthfeel is smooth, thick. Overall, not too bad. I'd try it again if I had more confidence it was fresh.

On tap at Pub 365 in Las Vegas. Pours a copper hue with moderate frothing. Assertive aroma replete with hints of citrus and mango. Similar overall flavor profile.

Hazy pale amber with film. 3.75
Syrup and peppermint gum. 3.75
Slight sweetness, heat and minty ring, lime zest, and bitter citrus rind end. 3.75
Long chalky linger.
Medium, slight cling, dry. 4

Centennial, Amarillo, Citra; mango, mint, lime, chili.

BBD in 5 months - is this dead already? Aromatics are gone, sez Mike W., who knows it from back home. Either way, the hops get lost for no good reason. A bridge too far. 3.75

From a 12 oz can (with no discernible date stamp) purchased in Queenstown into a shaker. This is the most interesting and unique beer I had in NZ, showing off some nice sophistication and a really innovative (to me, anyway) combination of flavors. I'm not sure why it is listed as retired or listed as an IPA (though it is 7.5) calls itself an "Indochine Pale Ale," but it could belong with chili beers, I'd think....anyhow, to more important things.

Pours a glowing amber with bright red edges, good off-white head and good retention. Nose brings a good bit of citrusy melony citra, and a little bit of spiciness too...a decent malt base beckons. On the tongue, good grief, there's some serious chili in there. And some other heat-delivering spices too, but it is balanced out with the cool citrus, as well as some mint and some Nashi (or just Asian) pear. This is good, and the tastes unfold nicely , starting with primarily hops, then you get the chili and the rest of the heat, and then it brings you through into a more cool and refreshing finish. Not quite as nice or as clean a finish as I might wish for with something so just kind of ends, but still...this was a nice find.

retired? who knows? no F'ing date on the bottle. no confusing bar code.... you'd think they'd get with the times at some point, eh, mate? shouldn't have purchased it for this reason alone. but i did. without thinking. probably not terribly old (or retired) due to the aromatic essences given off on the pour.... but then again, no carbonation whatsoever... flavor falls flat. one drink and i'm considering pouring it in the drain. they spelled "chiles" with two "ll's" for god's sake.... disappointing. maybe it's not even worth the rating i gave it. still drinking it, though.... we'll see.....

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
ABV: 7.5% Best before January 14 - 2017.

A clear, copper colored beer with a two finger high, white head.

Nose: Wow! A lot of fruity hops! Orange, mango, pineapple, pine, resin and a little hint of chili.
Taste: The chili is more in the taste than in the nose. Mango, citrus, orange, tea, resin, malt and lime.
Mouth: Full body. Medium carbonaton. Dry ending. The heat from the chili stays in the mouth - Not to much though!

Great beer!
