3.34/5 rDev -18.5%
Clear orangey amber with a hint of rose. Modest foam in the pint shaker. From the very first sip the ginger makes its presence known-- hot and spicy. The other sensation is how dry this is. It's quite sharp and lacks even a hint of sweetness. The malt provides some body, though. The ginger flavor is good but the hops are a one-dimensional bitter burn.
This flattens out considerably in the carbonation department. The heat from the ginger is interesting, but overall this is really tart and a little harsh. Drank this at Fathom on Shelter Island while waiting for the big cruise ship to sail by.

Poured on-tap at Ballast Point in San Diego, Calif. Reviewed from notes.
A- Creamy finger width head. Longer retention. Fluffy lacing.
S- Citrusy hops, ginger is heavy, some soapiness, grapefruit, light crisp smells.
T- Some bitter hops, but the ginger comes up and bites in the end. Still very subtle flavor.
M- Smooth and creamy feel with a bite of carbonation.
O- The ginger isn't strong, but it is present. I feel this could have been done better.
