COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We take our IPA with all of its citrus hop aroma and add a few more plants, namely cedar and lavender for a flowery aroma with the same clean finish.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 26, 2010
Draft. Pours an orange toned body with a white head. Huge floral citrus, and earth tones, cedar and pepper notes with grapefruit tones. Cedar wood, light tangerine accents and mild peppermint notes. Dunno but if your not thinking amazing already somethings wrong with you! A mild warming, one hell of an incredible IPA, serious NY i’m disappointed in you.

At RnH during the Cigar City event. Cedar and grapefruit. Flavors are rich and vivid. Ridiculous..

malrubius (1862) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - FEB 26, 2010
On tap at RnH. Golden orange with ring. Fruity orange herbal aroma. Cedar spice orange candy herbal flavors. Bitter cedar throughout. I went home afterward to see if I could replicate the experience by pouring an IPA on my old wooden floor and then licking it up.

italarican (1484) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - FEB 20, 2010
On tap at the Rattle n’ Hum Cigar City event. Thin orange pour. Really nice aroma of floral and citrus hops mixed with cedar spice. Flavor of perfume and a strong presence of oak and citrus hops. Surprisingly earthy. I expected (and hoped for) something more delicate to go with the nose. The earthy finish lingers for quite a while.

dmac (4217) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 19, 2010
Draft at Rattle N Hum for the Cigar City event. Poured a clear orange amber body underneath a bubbly white head. Aroma was loads of fresh sticky hops, cereal grains, lavender, chamomile tea. Perfect palate, mediu bodied with average carbonation and a crisp biting finish. Flavor of fresh hops, ceral grains, light perfume and lavender. Really good IPA and a nice subtle blend of extra flowers for aroma and taste.

Sammy (8947) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2010 Cigar City takes NYC event at Rattle ’N’ Hum. A good bitterness, these guys know how to brew hoppy IPAs! Hooppy floral aroma, lavendar and cedar comes through in the taste. Good drinkability.Orange body with a bit of white head.Some complexity for you.

j12601 (6927) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2010
On tap at Rattle N Hum for their Cigar City event. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Nice flowery aromas, citrus hops, earthy, malty. Flavor doesn’t quite hit what the aromas promised, picking up some light vegetal flavors before moving into a nice bitter finish.

Slipstream (2076) - USA - FEB 18, 2010
On tap at Rattle’n’Hum’s Cigar City event. A pretty dry IPA with a noticable quinine-like flavor, and notes of fruit and flowers. Someone else tasted jasmine, and I concur.
