$4.99 bomber from Wine Warehouse. Pours slightly hazy golden-amber with a giant beige-yellow head. Smell is ginger, dust, citrus, caramel. Taste is ginger, citrus, dust, caramel, licorice. I donít love it, but itís interesting.

Poured an orange with a white head. Aroma of ginger and old hops. Flavor similar, blah.

Pours hazy orange with a yellowish head. Smells of pine, citrus, and ginger. Taste is piney with a subtle spiciness. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Ballast Point Ginger Big Eye finishes with a ginger kiss.

phaleslu (9255) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2016
Draft at Ei8ht Ball, served in a flight. Pours a cloudy gold with a white head that laces the glass while settling into a ring and film. Definite ginger and pepper spice, with citrus zest, grass, straw, and some pale and sweet malts. Light-bodied, with a bitter, spicy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Now that Ballast Point has blitzed the market with these variants of their standards, I canít help but think these are gimmicks. The standards have been such high-quality beers and the bases are getting lost under really strong adjuncts. Theyíre not all bad, per se, but they sacrifice depth and nuance to serve the variant.

3.5/5 on appearance, nice medium brown appearance with solid foamy head. Smells great.. like your typical quality IPA, with a hint of sweet ginger (which I may not have suspected if it werenít mentioned). Balanced.. nice malt and citrusy hops. Ginger just a little present, mostly in the aftertaste. Average IPA bitterness, not too much carbonation. I like it.

Brews n chews. Pours a cloudy yellow color. Aromas of ginger and earthy hops. Maybe a bit stale at this point.

bubbleflubber (2154) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Pours orange into the glass, with a large foamy eggshell head that leaves thick soap lacing. The nose is of candied ginger. Flavors have lots of ginger spice overtop of cracker malts and some caramel/touch of and finishing of heavy ginger spice. Medium-bodied and complex, itís definitely an interesting take on the IPA genre, thatís for sure. Will probably be a hit or miss, depending upon the taster.
