Received as an extra in a trade and am very pleasantly surprised. Canned 2/11/15, nice and hoppy, ginger is a pleasant addition. Really enjoyed this one!

Significantly more balanced (read: better) after a few weeks of age on the can.

12oz can with 01/06/2015 stamped on the underside of the can. Pours a brownish dark orange color with 1/4 inch of head. The aroma is finger with some dank and herbal hops as well as some light bready notes. The taste is ginger and herbal hops up front followed by some more bread. Dank and piney towards the end. Ginger and herbal hop finish. Slick with a slightly oily mouthfeel. The ginger is borderline too much at times which makes this a beer I couldn't drink a few of in one sitting. Still it is a solid and different IPA. Overall, I'd grab it every once in a while.

A little too much ginger for my taste. So much so, it has the ginger burn on the way down. Worth a try to say you had it...once.

Nothing special. Just a regular IPA. About as exciting as Arbor Day.

You can taste the hint of ginger. Good for 1 or 2. The taste might become old after that.

Pours a hazy orange/red color with an off white head that trails the glass as you drink it. The smell is full of both citrus and ginger, both giving off very strong flavors. The taste was very strong with the ginger up front before giving way to citrus and pine from the hops. I didn't get much malt in this one. Overall I thought it was interesting, but just not right for me.
