Bottled, no date. Poured into a lager glass a hazy golden color with a humongous frothy head the subsided and laced very well. Aroma was a whiff of gingers and not too much else, maybe a bit of breadiness. The taste was therefore a surprise. Just a touch of ginger, but holy grapefruit, Batman! The bitterness from the rind and albedo, yet a fresh grapefruit juice note works underneath and brings some tartness and highlights the sweetness. The ginger comes back on the end with a bit of tingle and dryness. The body is medium, kind of smooth. Overall. It isn’t strong enough with the ginger for me to call it a ginger beer, but reminds me more of a grapefruit shandy if I mixed a medium body lager with fresh grapefruit juice. I like this, wish I had paired it with maybe Mexican or BBQ vittles.
The grapefruit and ginger really linger...in a pleasant palate cleansing sort of way. Quite a while after drinking it and still have a faint citrus and ginger taste going on.

Ginger & Juice pours a slightly cloudy honey yellow with a massive, fizzy head on top. As the foam dissolves it leaves behind a coating of lace on the glass.
The aroma has notes of ginger, grapefruit, lemon zest and bread.
Each sip of this medium bodied beer is creamy with mild carbonation. The flavor is sweet with spices and some bitterness. The ginger flavor is found throughout each sip. Grapefruit citrus and lemon rind are balanced by light fruit and sweet malt. It finishes mildly bitter with some grassy hop notes. Once gone the ginger and sweet malt lingers on the palate.
This is a tasty beer where the ginger doesn't over power the flavor. Very well balanced.

Gold with a big, puffed up white head. Large dollop of foam sits in the middle of my glass throughout the whole session and leaves clumps of lace strung top to bottom.
Melon and ginger spice aroma. Tastes like melon and ginger too. Fresh like cucumber and a little reminiscent of Thai food. Or floral like rosewater. Grapefruit citrus in back. Mild but not lacking bitter. Dry, malty base.
Different but I really enjoyed it. Bottle label mentions a proprietary hop strain which I'm guessing is Calypso. Rising Tide Zephyr has a similar melon flavor and aroma and that used Calypso. Hooray Calypso.

Hell Yeah! Was not sure if this was going to go over well with me or not. I love ginger and grapefruit as well ... Jack's does a great job finding that balance. This is part old school tonic and part craft beer. Brew more of this please!!
