Translucent golden-amber body. About one finger of dense white head. Not the best retention but excellent lacing.

Relatively neutral nose with ginger sprinkled in. A touch of grapefruit but cannot tell whether it's from the actual fruit or merely the hops. Well balanced for the adjuncts used.

Freah ginger, candied ginger, mellow ripe grapefruit. Bitter in the beginning and middle but the ginger mellowd out the bitterness in the finish. The ginger and grapefruit are in the forefront but are extremely well balance and by no means overwhelming. Some sweet malt notes underlying throughout.

Medium-light body. Medium carb. Finish is a little sweet and sticky.

This is better than GF Sculpin. I wish JA released this more often. For their hoppy stuff, not quite up there with 3x DH HU and Mass Rising but pretty close
