Smells absolutely fantastic. this is honestly the first re-drinkable ginger beer that I’ve had. Some hops from the IPA but a definite ginger flavor

mcberko (9200) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
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.

snoworsummer (3131) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Draft at BP Miramar. Pours clear copper with a fizzy white head. Smells like straight up ginger. Tastes like dry ginger, grapefruit, citrus hops, and dry cracker malt. Light/medium body and low carbonation.

GT2 (9272) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 22, 2015
[ 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?

DSG (8324) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/20/15] Draught at Ballast Point Old Grove in San Diego. As Big Eye IPA Ginger. Clear golden. Big ginger aroma with a bit of hops in the back. Spicy flavor with lots of ginger, some citric hops and some bitterness. Medium-bodied. Really not my thing.
