Lukasmh (363) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2014 Bottle. Pours clear golden, high carbonation, huge frothy foamy white head. Aroma is piney and resin. Dry Christmas tree. Exotic fruits. Taste is malty sweet, some bread, peach, candy, minty hops - the ginger? Full body, smooth carbonation. Dry candy finish. Really mellow, resinous, fresh and sessinable. Well hidden alcohol, some oily mouthfeel which is delicious.

Cloudy yellow-orange color with big head. Aroma is light piney, a bit spicy. Taste is spicy and bitter, but also boozy. Very boozy finish. A bit of a different IPA!

Braudog (5966) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Draft at Bridge-STL. Reddish tinge. Very light body, at least compared to expectation. Nice hoppy, tree-like aroma and flavors. Never would’ve thought ginger, but that just proves how "good" my palate really is. Enjoyable, light holiday beer. (#5891, 12/17/2014)

Draft at Churchkey. Poured a golden blonde color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was nice light pine, with some ginger heat to it. Flavor was some pine hop character. Ginger. Nice.

solidfunk (4904) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Very nicely done. This comes together very well. Ginger is well tempered, just a bite. Pine is nice too. Blonde with good head and lacing. Bitter finish. Good stuff. Tap at Black Squirrel.

Beer4000 (4948) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2014
330 ml bottle @ Fox and Hounds, Aabenraa. Almost clear golden body with a fine, creamy white head. Good and strong aroma of citric fruit, oranges, grapefruit, fresh spruces, flowers and some caramel. Flavor is sweet malt, moderate caramel, lots of citric fruit as found in aroma, a hint of ginger and good bitterness with a hint of spruces. Fine body and bitter, tasty aftertaste. Never imaged I would find an IPA that gave some Christmas spirit, but this actually gives me some of it. Christmas or not, a well-made tasty and slightly original IPA.
