“Chile pepper is a bit more apparent in the flavor with grassy, herbal, and slight piney hops. Maybe a bit of citrus. There’s a fair amount of heat, which masks a lot of the flavor, but there’s a malt backbone supporting it. Tastes like Anaheim and jalepeño chiles with some peach and orange character from the hops. Clean beer beneath with bitterness that complements the heat.”
