Pours deep gold into a tumbler. White head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Ginger and spice aromas. Thick with sweet and hot ginger upfront turning to resin in the lasting hot finish.

sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 15, 2015
Draft @ The Stein & Vine. Cuivrée, col crémeux beige. Arôme au bouquet bien agréable de gingembre ajoutant un bouquet épicé modéré, rétro fruité houblonné prenant. Malt prend plus une place de retrait. Palais met bien en avant le gingembre, houblonné avec une pointe épicée. Malt pâle et caramel avec un fini rappelant un canard à l’orange et rétro houblonné C tropical. Note pas spécialement le profil d’un thé, mais le gingembre qui peu être si versatile dans son usage reste ici fort plaisant.

ctipping (216) - Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2015
On tap at Lord Hobo. Served in a pint glass. Amber body. Nice lacing. Perfumy aroma. Ginger and grapefruit. Tastes similar, as ginger dominates. Grapefruit hop bitterness and a caramel malt sweetness. Medium heavy. Sluggish and dominated by ginger.

burg326 (4668) - Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Poured a coperish color with aromas of ginger, fresh cut ginger, and mild malt. Flavors were lit malt a touch of hops and ginger. Decent but ginger dominates the flavor profile.

SinH4 (1081) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 6, 2015
Taster at the brewery. Copper color with small white ring. Fresh ginger nose. Taste is gingery, a bit malty, but the ginger dominates. A strong punch. Herbal finish. Very intense. Not 100% my cup of tea.

dwyerpg (4871) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 1, 2015
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

kathouse (1257) - Nevada, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Clear golden with a thick head. Strong ginger aroma and taste. I like ginger but this is a lot!

Pours deep gold and good white head. Aroma has strong ginger notes. Carries through lightly to taste.

mcberko (9343) - 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 (3244) - 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.
