2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This does not take me anywhere... It's got nothing in the way of good American pale ale qualities... A stale hop aroma and taste...bad bitterness lingers... Not worth a repeat at this point... Can design is nice

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Muted citrus and odd in a good way caramel aroma with grainy notes, a candy sweetness also apparent as it warms. Ruddy muddy copper color, lots of yeast sediment. Taste is okay, not overly hop forward but citrusy hop character is more apparent in flavor than in aroma. Palate is nice, creamy, slightly over carbed perhaps, it’s borderline. Overall not enough hop punch and I get hints of the ginger but wouldn’t know what it was if not in the description. It seems a timid approach to doing something different. Sort of a ’let’s differentiate ourselves from other APAs but lets not be bold’ approach ... recipe for mediocrity, which this beer is. It’s not a bad beer, I’d drink it again and will try it again (especially on tap), but it shines in no particular way yet isn’t bad in any particular way, and doesn’t showcase cane syrup (which I LOVE) or ginger in any special way.

This beer; this beer is what a perfect session drinking should be; it's got a balance of flavor of malt and hops that you can enjoy it with friends and family without being distracted. Strong malt and touch of hops

Amber pour. The aroma is quite sweet and malty. Some light grapefruity
hops and a touch of pepper. Sweet and a little bit hoppy. Okay.

On tap at The Blind Tiger. A copper pour with an off white head. Nose is grain, straw, little else. Flavor is lightly bitter. Thin mouthfeel.

This one didn’t work for me. Don’t think I’m a big fan of ginger in beer. At the blind tiger.
