Picked up at the brewery today.
A- Clear yellow body poured into a pint glass. A white head forms to a finger in size with lackluster retention. Small foamy ring and a tiny amount of lace.
S- Definitely ginger and orange peel up front but not much else. Hard to get much more.
T- Spicy ginger bomb but still very smooth, fairly impressive. Orange peel and citrus are a close second as well as pine, herbal and spicy grassy hops.
MF- Lighter end body with nice moderate high carbonation. Creamy feel and spicy bitter feel on the palate.
The ginger use is strong but works well and tastes nice. Jack strikes again.
Serving type: growler

This beer pours a hazy opaque orange body with a fluffy white head.
Nose floats back and forth between ginger and traditional IPA type smells of citrus and fresh malt.
Taste immediately hits you with a ginger touch, but not over the top at all. The ginger definitely gives it a nice little spice touch, and actually almost reminds you of a winter holiday beer at first. Medium bodied and very chewy and smooth. Lots of citrus, but not any strong defined flavors. More of just a "juice" mix of flavors. The ginger really balnaces and plays well, but helps almost not define the flavors. Bitterness is present, but not over the top at all. This is just a really well balanced beer, and at the same time it's big and quaffable. Ends with a very nice lingering ginger and bitterness, but doesn't kill the pallete.
This is really a nice beer. I wasn't crazy about it when I first tried it at the brewery, but maybe my taste buds were off. A day later out of a growler it is superb!! It's just hobby enough with enough malt to be a straight up type pale ale/ipa (well lager), but the ginger doesn't overpower and adds a beutiful balance. What a really good beer.

Appearance: Arrives at the bar with a cloudy apricot color capped my a marshmallow foam head that curtains lacing
Smell: As grapefruity as can be; almost smells like the juice itself
Taste: Though the ginger was not detected in the aroma, the flavor profile is clearly affected by it; ginger, grapefruit and melon flavors are all in the mix; the finish is very juicy
Mouthfeel: Medium body with prickly carbonation
Overall: Very juicy for a beer but it sure works for me; always enjoy seeking out the Jack's Abbey beers when I am in Boston
Serving type: on-tap
