look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy golden to honey-colored hue. Massive amounts of foam create a big white frothy head from a simple pour. Be careful when pouring this. I had to let it sit for a few minutes before attempting again, and then had to be very gentle when filling the glass.

Smell is of pear, apple and other stonefruit. Hints of citrus and lime, followed up by light peppery phenols and a bit of band aid. Taste is of stonefruit , light white pepper spice, giving way to a mild grass note on the finish with fruity esters. For being very high in carbonation, I did get a sort of fullness and creamy mouthfeel. The high carbonation didn't detract for me,and it helped bring out subtle flavors as the beer warmed. An enjoyable beer for sure. Better to share this with friend or two.

3.86/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottle: Poured a cloudy beige color ale with a large dirty white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of spicy ginger notes with rustic malt and fruity zesty hops. Taste is a great mix between some rustic malt with quite dry aftertaste and some spicy ginger notes with some fruity and zesty hops. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. I really enjoyed this beer but I would have personally prefer less ginger.
