Sampled from the tap at the MBGSF 2011. Poured a clear amber with a light brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of ginger with a light hop note. Flavor began with pine that balanced with the ginger that came out more in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at MBGWF 2011. Poured clear dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy ginger & hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy ginger bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy bitter finish of medium to long duration. This a very interesting brew.
