Ghost Face Killah April 27, 2011
Hops: Willamette, Northern Brewer
Description: A dream for spice lovers, Ghost Face Killah features not only the deliciously fresh chili flavors of Serrano, Habanero, Jalapeno, Anaheim, and Fresno peppers, but also the lingering smokiness and visceral heat of dried and smoked Ghost Peppers. The Ghost Pepper, also known as Bhut Jolokia, is one of the hottest peppers on the planet, and our brewers have to wear masks and gloves in the preparation of this beer, but people’s reactions to this one-of-a-kind concoction make all the hard work worth it. Soft, golden wheat flavor greets the palate for a fleeting moment before the conglomeration of chili flavors rushes over your taste buds, covering them in an extremely spicy warmth like a straightjacket, and the only way out is to take another sip in hopes that your mouth becomes accustomed to the pervasive heat.
Food Pairing: Ice-cream or milk, because that’s all that’ll help you with this brew.0
