COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dos Costas Oeste is the result of a collaborative brewing effort between Cigar City Brewing of Florida’s Gulf (West) Coast and The Bruery of Placentia, CA. Like the breweries involved with its creation this ale cheerfully meanders off the beaten path. Join us in celebrating this West Coast to West Coast collaboration. Aged on Spanish Cedar Spirals

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2012 Bottle picked up at Cigar City. Orange-gold color with a short-lived white head on top. Cedar and sawdust aroma with notes of doughy yeast and tropical fruit cocktail. This is spicy and bitter with a lot of white pepper and fresh-cut cedar flavor. A bit medicinal too with a tangy orange cough drop flavor that is a tad distracting. A tropical fruit sweetness is noted for sure but ends up getting covered by the more aggressive cedar and peppery notes. I admit, I wasn’t much of a fan at first but this did grow on me. Much better as it warms when the sharp cedar really stands out and that medicinal orange thing takes a backseat. Looking forward to trying the other versions.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 28, 2012
So excited to see these sitting on the shelf here in NYC. 24 karat and copper infused pour with hints of tangerine. Nose of orange peel, grapefruit pith, evergreen and black pepper. Little bit of yeast as well. Flavor is filled with unfiltered alcohol, overbearing spice, raw wood, and citrus. Hot, bitter, messy and muddled. Just not a fan.

Bottle shared by drowland, pours an unclear orange with a thick soapy head, the aroma was a ton of cedar and not a whole lot else, the flavor has a strange front end with a lot of spices and a finish of wood, weird mouthfeel, kind of different.

Marsiblursi (3021) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2012
(Bottle) Pours hazy orange with an off-white head. The aroma holds spicy cedar wood up front with hints of bread, citrus and spices. The flavour is light sweet, medium bitter and light acidic with notes of cedar, citrus, spices, bread and light phenols. The mouthfeel is a bit round and a bit numbing from the wood with a light carbonation. Woodsy finish. Medium bodied.

Gedronken met joes, benzai en dutchdrebus, goudkleurig, sigaren kistje geur, houtsnipper, zo rook onze oude kast. Hij smaakt ook naar hout en een beetje verbrand. Veel koolzuur.

Wow this is well another huge cedar bomb. Reminds me of sniffing bug spray with extra deet. Super huge cedar notes dominate all other nuanced flavor here.

Bottle. Slightly murky caramel colored pour with no head. Nice aroma of spanish cedar with spices. Taste is cedar up front before a fairly generic and sweet malt backbone with some spices. Coating mouthfeel. The cedar is nice; otherwise did not care for the beer.
