Specialty IPA

ABV 6.7%, IBU 72

Dos Desperados has been serving up delicious craft beer to the San Marcos area for almost two years now, with their head brewer and co-owner Steve Munson brewing for over twenty. Dos Desperados boats an extensive beer list with signature beers such as El Hefe Hefeweizen, Che Che’s IPA, Pancho Villa Double IPA, and Two-Timer Scottish Ale. With beers in almost every style there is definitely a pint with your name on it!

We loved their Habeerneros IPA! An Award Winner in the Specialty Beer category at the 2015 San Diego International Beer Festival, this unique take on the Che Che’s IPA boasts the aroma and spice of Habanero Peppers in a way that is not too overwhelming and very drinkable! Pairs great with burgers and tacos!


Appearance: Habeerneros pours very nicely with a small head that dissipates as it sits. The beer itself is a medium to light golden color with a clear finish.

Aroma: Mild hop aroma with pleasant citrus, floral, and tropical fruit. No real strong aroma of Habanero

Flavor: This is not a strong IPA, very mild in flavor, floral undertones with the spice appearing on the back end. Wait for it… Wait for it… there is the spice!


Mouthfeel: Solid carbonation for an IPA, hops not too overpowering with a subtle but not too strong spice finish!

Overall: This is a very solid IPA with just the right amount of spice. Not too overpowering or hot. Even if you’re not a spice lover give this a try! Great anytime beer to spice up your beer drinking experience!

Check out Dos Desperados Brewing for yourself! Head to their tasting room in San Marcos for a great atmosphere and great beer! You can even celebrate their second anniversary with them on February 25th!

Address: 1241 Linda Vista Dr, San Marcos, CA 92078

About The Author

PR / Marketing Intern

I am a sports fanatic, music lover, outdoor enthusiast and beer advocate born and raised in sunny San Diego, CA. While I am not out exploring San Diego’s craft beer scene, I can be found hanging out at the beach with friends or attending southern California’s many live music events. My passion for craft beer was inherited from my father while home brewing together in their garage. I continued to share his passion for craft beer with friends while attending college in Los Angeles, where I was able to explore the craft beer scene outside of San Diego. In the future, I hope to be involved in Marketing/ Event Planning for the craft beer industry so I can spread my love and passion for beer with the larger San Diego community. I am an avid sports fan and can be seen sharing a pint with other aliens at local Padre and Charger games!
