i like me some ginger but this takes away from a good pale ales hop profile (just a little). Still enjoyed, but I preferred the base side by side.

On cask @ Karl Strauss Costa Mesa. Hazed orange pour with a white head. Well, you can definitely smell the ginger. Really spicy, ginger forward aroma. Light tea, some citrus peel, and more ginger. Flavor is lightly bitter and otherwise dominated by the additives. Spicy ginger flavor all the way through. Hints of tea, some orange, grass, and bready malt. Not bad, but can’t see myself drinking too much.
