Draft at Churchkey for the Bluejacket/Funky Buddha/Cigar City event during SAVOR week. Poured an orange color, wispy head. Aroma was seriously ginger - like ginger ginger ginger. Like I was about to take a bite into pickled ginger while eating sushi. Flavor is heavy on the ginger, with other more minor spice characters, but the beer is a bit one-note for me here.

Une feuille de mousse flotte sur un liquide à la robe cuivrée. Au nez, le gingembre est dominant et sauve sa force poivrée en se vautrant dans un caramel dédié à la cause. La bouche est comme le nez : simple et douce. La plante originaire de l’Asie ne prend jamais en feu sur mes papilles. Dans cette optique, les sucres maltés sont intelligents. Au palais, le corps est plutôt dense. L’effervescence est bien tranquille. La texture est très huileuse. Le sucre résiduel y joue sans doute un rôle. La finale est davantage piquée par le gingembre que par les houblons. Cette expérience n’est pas renversante. Elle est simplement intéressante et bien exécutée.

Draft. Cloudy pale yellow, large white head, decent lacing. Aroma of big ginger. Taste is tropical fruit, spice. The right amount of ginger, I think.

On tap at Capones. Pours slightly murky amber-orange. Crazy ginger aroma with slight pine hops. Basically smells like a ginger root. Overwhelmingly ginger taste with hints of earthy hops, and like citrus. Very unique.

Tap at Capones. Jesus H. F. C. This is a ginger explosion! Rich orange pour no head. Cool brew.

Tap at CK. Murky deep orange pour with no head. Nose is mega mega ginger root. Taste is mega ginger root and lemongrass with cloven spice bitterness like cinnamon stick tannins. Very nice. Mega ginger character. Slap your face. Good palate cleanser as well to obliterate the bluejacket/CCB circus peanut beer taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of ginger and hops. Poured amber in color with no head. Cloudy. Not sparkling. Full of medium and large-sized particles throughout. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of ginger and hops. Medium body. Oily texture. Soft carbonation. Ginger and hop finish. 7.5%ABV is completely hidden throughout. So much ginger!

On tap at Churchkey. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a clear golden-yellow color with a white head. That’s about all that resembles an IPA in this one. The nose is just over-the-top fresh ginger with nothing else. This is carbonated ginger liquid. I can’t get any hop aroma. To the taste. Nope, no hops there either. Just more ginger and some carbonation. Very seltzer-like. Some ginger spice and heat; no real bitterness. The ginger is done nicely, but for what purpose? It overrides what I can assume is beer underneath and leaves nothing in the way of complexity, beer flavor, or even any real general enjoyment.

On tap at Capone’s. Poured a cloudy amber color with a smaller sized head. Ginger, some floral hoppiness, and earthy.
