Cunningham (4939) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2012
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.
[Bottle from a trade with tommann]

johndoughty (4114) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2013
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.

DanielBrown (3927) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2012
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.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2012
On cask @ Craft Beer Co, London. Clear golden in color with a small really bubbly off-white head. The aroma is definitely infused with lots of ginger! Light acidic with sour lemons as well, and it’s mildly hoppy-fruity. Lot’s of ginger in the taste also, and it feels light acidic in the flavor. A bit sticky. Not as fruity as expected, but it has a good amount of bitter hops, some sweetness also. Not quite there for me though, a bit unharmonic and quite honest, a bit strange. 21.07.2012

Stuu666 (3570) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours hazy amber, nose is grapefruit, spice, taste has some ginger, light, fruity.

tommann (2861) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a small head. Aroma is subtle, juicy hops, mango, pineapple and melon with a little warming ginger. Taste is juicy too, mango, pineapple, melon. No sense of the ginger though, maybe a little warmth. Flat as hell.

The_Bish (1125) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2012
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.

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.
