SaintMatty (7207) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2012
330ml Bottle - Hazy amber with a foamy head. Ginger, peach, grapefruit, malt and some soapy hops in the aroma. Hoppy, spicy and fruity taste with notes of ginger, grapefruit, sultanas and dried apricot. The finish lingers for quite a long time.

On tap at Craft. Pretty much a clear gold beer, little white head. Smooth palate, mild carbonation. Rich marmalade hops, juicy, ruch and bitter. Nice well integrated ginger compliments well. Smooth finish, very drinkable.

Drunk at Cotteridge Wines very very good beer sampling party with Arborman who commented it had little carbonation. Not a problem for me, went down smoothly with nice gingery ginger finish.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Did not expect to like. Did like. Liked a lot. Fresh ginger hits nostrils immediately. Flavour is a very well crafted blend of a solid hop-filled IPA, but with an x-factor of ginge. Shouldnt work, but was fragrant and delicious. Highly recommended.

Palme (4522) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2012
On cask @ Craft Beer Co, London. Clear golden in color with a small really bubbly off-white head. The aroma is definitely infused with lots of ginger! Light acidic with sour lemons as well, and its mildly hoppy-fruity. Lots of ginger in the taste also, and it feels light acidic in the flavor. A bit sticky. Not as fruity as expected, but it has a good amount of bitter hops, some sweetness also. Not quite there for me though, a bit unharmonic and quite honest, a bit strange. 21.07.2012

downender (8481) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2012
Cask-conditioned at the Colston Yard, Bristol 4/08/2012. Golden coloured with a tight white head that left rings down the glass. Aroma of pineapple and grapefruit with a hint of ginger. flavour had more fruit, a small note of root ginger and dry, moderately bitter finish, which was more pleasant than with some other Arbor IPAs. This combination worked well.

Cask (tasted in the bottle--much better on cask). Big juicy fruits and distinct ginger. The nose is much more ginger than the taste. One of my favorites from Arbor.

tommann (3621) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a small head. Aroma is subtle, juicy hops, mango, pineapple and melon with a little warming ginger. Taste is juicy too, mango, pineapple, melon. No sense of the ginger though, maybe a little warmth. Flat as hell.
