Iím noticing a trend with the Humidor series, black pepper. This pale ale is no exception, with pine, cedar, hay, and that ever-present black pepper. Your first sip may be a bit of a shock but you will get used to it. The appearance is beautiful, with a thick, creamy head and a lovely amber hue. If you care about lacing (and I donít) youíll find plenty. Overall this is an interesting, tasty beer (purchased through Letspour.com).

MartinT (9369) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Peppery cedar and resinous hops merge atop lightly biscuit malts in this flavourful Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the cloudy dull amber.
-The malt profile is rather muddled.
-Mouthfeel is smooth and very drinkable.
-I would have liked some citrusy hop fruitiness in there to brighten the flavour profile.
-This remains a very pleasant, idiosyncratic treatment on a Pale Ale.

On tap at the brewery taproom.

Cloudy yellow. Nose is citrus and cedar, spices. Flavor is crisp citrus, lemon, some pine and big cedar notes.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Such intense flavors for a light beer! Poured the same murky yellow as the other badass IPA version. The aroma was full of tangerine, hops and wet wood. The taste was tropical, earthy and sweet with hints of wood and lemongrass. Fantastic.

On draft at CCB, poured a light cloudy amber orange color, aromas of citrus, and light cedar. Flavors are light citrus, touch of malt, and some cedar. Extremely light on the palate, a easy all day drinker.

Pours a hazy amber gold with a thick head. Aroma of citrus and cedar. Taste follows, bitter citrusy hop profile plays nice with the cedar. Very easy to drink, great humidor treatment.
