- Up from the depths, Thirty stories high,
Breathing fire, His head in the sky!
OK, so it won’t make you breathe fire, but it does have a hint of warming heat compliments of South American Aji Amarillo peppers. These orange colored, moderately spicy peppers from Peru possess a surprising fruity flavor - not peppery or vegetal, but instead, reminiscent of yellow and orange tropical fruits like mango, pineapple, or ground-cherries. Amarillo and Citra hops deliver tropical fruit and bright citrus notes that pair remarkably well with the peppers, as the complementary flavors create a bold taste sensation that is powerfully fruity without being sweet. The distinct bitterness provides balance without being coarse or assertive and the light, clean malt lets the hops and peppers shine through. The finish is dry and crisp with a hint of spiciness from the peppers that lingers on the palate, gently warming, and inviting the next sip.

- 2.7 / 5.03 ReviewsNo heatI gave the extract kit a five star rating last year. It had a nice warming taste. I've since brewed this from all grain twice and neither one had any heat associated with it at all. The second all grain batch I opened the peppers and let them soak in the secondary for 10 days. Nothing. The base beer is good. The peppers are unreliable.September 24, 2015Response from Northern BrewerThanks for the review!November 21, 2016Northern BrewerCustomer Service at it's best.I did a review that was not the best in the world about this beer but I wanted to make it clear that Northern Brewer stands by their products 110%. World class customer service is what makes this company stand out above and beyond the competition...September 5, 2015Not very happy with this one.Not sure if I got some contamination from the peppers but I soaked them for 2 days in vodka before cutting them up and adding to the secondary. You could taste the pepper and the aroma was very good. Flavor was less than desirable with a medicine / soapy type off flavor. I kept hoping this would go away but I ended up dumping the batch after about 6 weeks. I am a firm believer in sanitation and go above and beyond so I am 99% sure it had to be something hiding inside of those pesky little pepper seeds.September 4, 2015Response from Northern BrewerThanks for the review. If the peppers were soaked in vodka than nothing should be alive on there
and it does not sounds like infection. Medicinal off flavors are usually seen when phenol compounds combine with chlorine and that should not happen in this beer
unless it was infected by a POF+ wild yeast and your water had high chlorine content and was not filtered. A soapy off flavor can be caused by stressed yeast that autolyse and spill their fatty acids into the beer - the cure for that is proper wort aeration and pitching enough viable yeast. Not sure how this beer tasted before adding peppers and I would have advised potentially finding a BJCP judge to try the brew to identify the off flavor so we could know for sure
maybe it was just the specific flavors introduced by the peppers. I would describe those flavors as a kind of dried smoky earthiness. Anyway
consider contacting your customer service rep
the beer kit replacement guarantee is around for a reason!November 21, 2016Northern Brewer
