4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Did not expect to like. Did like. Liked a lot. Fresh ginger hits nostrils immediately. Flavour is a very well crafted blend of a solid hop-filled IPA, but with an x-factor of ginge. Shouldn’t work, but was fragrant and delicious. Highly recommended.

Cask (tasted in the bottle--much better on cask). Big juicy fruits and distinct ginger. The nose is much more ginger than the taste. One of my favorites from Arbor.

Bottle. Orange with a small head and low carbonation. Interesting combination of hops and ginger which was a risk that paid off. Another winner from this wonderful brewery.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask-conditioned at the Colston Yard, Bristol 4/08/2012. Golden coloured with a tight white head that left rings down the glass. Aroma of pineapple and grapefruit with a hint of ginger. flavour had more fruit, a small note of root ginger and dry, moderately bitter finish, which was more pleasant than with some other Arbor IPAs. This combination worked well.

Drunk at Cotteridge Wines very very good beer sampling party with Arborman who commented it had little carbonation. Not a problem for me, went down smoothly with nice gingery ginger finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy yellow golden with a big frothy white head that leaves a fine lacing. Hoppy and a bit acidic aroma. Medium pluss body. Light sweetness and rich bitterness. A fine grape hoppy and spicy flavour. Light acidic as well. When the beer gets a little bit warmer in the glass you also notice a fine fresh ginger feeling in the mouth. Well hidden alcohol.
