3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours somewhat hazy dark golden with half finger of wispy head. Nose is lots of grapefruit, floral hops, cedar, I totally get the humidor Spanish cedar cigar box note. Taste starts off with grapefruit and citrus, then I get a ton of cedar and wood, then we get that bitter grapefruit peel and woody cigar box on the finish, also I get cinnamon and more cedar in the aftertaste. Balanced between the bitter grapefruit peel and he sweetness of the fruit, and a lot of cedar and wood smoothing it out. Very cool take on an ipa. Sweetens and fruiter as it warms.

Poured from the can into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a deep amber-copper color with tons of noticeable, cloudy sediment throughout, and a very large foamy-creamy off-white head with great retention, and excellent lacing and cling. The aroma was a blend of citrus and floral notes, with some grain and yeast, all set within the sweet, woody, humidor scent. The beer was fairly bitter with citrus and grainy notes, but also a modest sweet humidor flavor for a nice blend. It was a very lively beer with a good, filling mouthfeel, a touch on the watery-wet side, but with a dry finish and great carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at World of Beer, Fort Myers. Poured like their Jai Alai, clear orange colored with a medium sized white head. Thatís where these two depart. Aroma was very interesting, I give them 5/5 on originality (if that were a choice to rate on). It smells like a humidor. It reminds me of being a child and passing by the Tobacco Barn every time I was in my local mall. It smells like I just cracked open a new box of cigars. It has that residual smell of my hands after smoking a cigar. However, all of that dominates the beer for me - it destroys whatever nuanced notes you get from the beer itself and replaces it with cedar. I love cedar. I donít know if I love a beer that smells and tastes pretty much like cedar. Iíd probably drink this one again, but I donít know if I can stand behind it as a beer. itself when placed up against their other offerings or other IPAs.

Pour from a can is a nice amber with a white head. Aroma is a subtle citrus with hints of flowers. Taste is a little sweet and tropical at first but goes down smooth. Leaves a nice citrusy after taste.

Shared by Donnie. Actually surprised that I had not had this before. Taste was a lot of spiciness and peppercorns up front, with spicy citrus hops. The cedar contributed a lot to this beer. Was interesting and certainly a nice thought on where you can take an IPA.

Can from homer321, thanks Sean for free beer! Pours a copper light brown with moderate off white lacing. Aroma is pepper corn, orange, lemon peel. Taste is loads of pepper corn, good beef jerky, slight cedar notes at the beginning which goes away by the middle to end. Very nice way to change up an IPA. I dig this!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured out of a bottle really hazy with a somewhat muted nose that really doesnít do this beer justice. The palate is quite rich with thick resin notes as well as orange, honey, grape must, and a light woodsy tannin to compliment the hop bitterness.
