3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Chuck’s, pours a hazy copper orange with a small white head. Aroma is huge on the ginger - not getting any hop characteristic. Flavour reveals dominating ginger notes - maybe a touch of hops. Very fresh ginger notes. Not really my thing, but this is executed very well.

[ Keg ][ 4oz ][ BP Little Italy ][ $1.50-2 ][ Stemmed Flute ][ 3.21.15 ]
>> Pours with low foam, hazy orange color. Intense candied ginger nose, stinky hop background, trash/overripe esters. Taste is spicy, dry, dusty, medium ginger, somewhat sticky, not quite robust enough ginger wise and I wish they had used a less sticky base beer. Grunion with Ginger?

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
17 Jan 2015, tap at Ballast Point. gold/orange, clear, some steady bubbles. nose is gorgeous ginger! occasionally you can find the aroma of the big eye hops but it’s pretty much just ginger, and it’s lovely! thin body and moderately fizzy. tastes like fresh cut ginger. it’s a tad watery. hops come out more in the flavor. this is great!
