Bottle. It’s a clear, golden colored beer with a minimal sized off-white head. Lots of ginger on the nose, and some citrus. Not much else going on due to the amount of ginger. There’s some malty notes in the flavor, caramel and bread, with ginger, citrus and a little bitterness. Medium body, nice carbonation level, and mostly dry on the palate. Some bitterness and faint notes of metal in the ginger dominated finish. Way too much ginger I think, why do so many breweries fail to make a subtle ginger flavored beer? Of course, because they don’t want to, but still. 130829

brokensail (13757) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Light amber color with a white head. Smells slightly citrusy, maybe some of the grapefruit coming though, but the ginger is much more prominent. Quite light overall. The flavor is quite heavy on the ginger, perhaps too much. A little bit of citrus, too. Quite refreshing, actually. Light body with medium carbonation.

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA, opened 6/13/11. Pours a pale hazy straw color with a thin head that fades almost immediately. The aroma is grapefruit dominated with notes of ginger and sawdust. The taste is grapefruit, ginger and pale malts. Thin and watery. This is closer to soda than beer.
