Killer hot peppers taste without being a particular pepper or being over intense, just a nice warm to hot peppers taste. I'd love dumping a bottle of this in the kettle when making a chili or stew and let it cook in.

This one poured a hazy golden color with streaming bubbles and a white rocky head that just drops into nothing.

The smell was very peppery and spicy but had an odd off note almost like spicy butter.

The taste was great! It tasted like a wit beer on the front of the tongue and then BAM!! The pepper punch rolls across the tongue and burns as it goes down.

The mouth feel is light and watery and this beer does burn with chili infused heat.

Overall this was a very good beer and a whole lot of fun. I would caution those that do not like spicy foods because this is a very spicy beer. Kind of reminds me of my red beers I make without the tomato influence. I will be buying more bombers of this!

Yellow with a nice pepper smell. Taste is very jalapeno-chili with little beer flavor. Heat does not linger very long. It is hot, not as hot as Stone Crime or punishment though. overall an OK hot beer.

Reviewed from notes, drank on 9/17/12.

Cloudy yellow, slightly orangey brownish tinge, smells like spicy olive juice. Taste is VERY peppery! spicy hot! Not an understatement, cant believe how hot this stuff is. Starts in the beginning of the mouth and works your way to the back of the throat. good for a hot beer but nothing you'd drink on a regular basis, makes a GREAT chili base!!

Man up or go home. This is exactly as advertised. Looks like a nice guy semi cloudy wheat, smells like a pleasant Chili Pepper before you bite it. Taste, be ready, it's not a fake beer. Love it. Not a daily drinker like Rogue chipotle ale. It is honest, real, spicy fun. Enjoy once every month or so.
