gorditoabd (624) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Gentle ginger aroma, mild ginger flavor up front, seems to mellow the hops, etc, of the normal big eye brew. Solid ginger front, great bitter and citrus hop finish, nice stuff

jredmond (5451) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Draft at ballast point with Linh. Pours an amber body with white lacing. Aroma is delicious ginger, tea, oranges and light hops. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of spicy ginger, tea leaves, mint, lemon and fresh floral hops. Ballast point has really proven their efficiency in pairing their base beers with the appropriate peppers. Wonderfully unique.

skmikeg (936) - Poway, California, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Taster at Old Grove location. Pours a golden amber with a small white head. Aroma is of citrus hops, ginger, sweet malts, and some caramel. Taste is of grapefruit, candied ginger, some pine, and some caramel malt notes. Has a medium body with a very creamy mouthfeel and a dry, bitter, and spicy finish. overall, a pretty tasty and interesting beer that would probably go great with sushi.

Draught at Tadg’s. Shiny orange-amber with lace. Big citrus hop nose, spicy but not overtly ginger, until it warms a bit. Nice fruit, slightly tropical. Sweet malt flavor with more ginger, nice hops. Good balance and nice bitterness. Nice body, rich but a bit fizzy. Good stuff.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Draft. Deep amber-red beer with anoff-white head. Citrus hop aroma with some sweet malt backing. Citrus and a little pine hop flavor with malty sweetness. Finish is too clean and hops don’t linger much on the aftertaste. Ginger in background.
