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.
