Tastes like a Christmas tree in an IPA....in a bad way.

I tried this one from a recommendation from a friend. It's flavorful and a definite holiday beer. The beer had a strong spicy aftertaste that I wasn't the biggest fan of.

Accompanied by Giordano's before heading to Hamilton. Too sweet for my taste. Bitter aftertaste. Couldn't taste the ginger at all.
