11/08/2009: Cigar City Humidor Series Jai Alai Cedar Aged India Pale Ale... Aroma: Very floral with quite a bit of perfume; a hint of orange. Appearance: Ruby/aged copper color with a foamy beige head. Flavor: Floral; hints of rose and grapefruit; fruity middle; hint of vanilla; soft finish; slightly dry; mild to moderate amount of bitterness. Palate: Medium-bodied. Overall: Quite good, but a bit over-hyped and over-rated...

backlogged, bottle sent by Emacgee. Hazy orange with a medium off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, tropical fruit, pine, spicy cedar. Taste is hoppy with grapefruit, tropical fruit, a nice piney bitterness. Cedar is strong, which suprised me since the description said that it is more subtle than oak. Alot of woody spicyness, and oily. Body is medium, cedar and hop bitterness lingers.

750mL bottle, courtesy of The Beer Wench. Thanks, Ashley! Pours a hazy, golden-amber color; very light-tan head with good retention and fine-bubbled lacing. Lots of pleasant grapefruit and citrus hoppiness in the aroma; zesty, spicy, and a nice touch of cedar notes; light alcohol. Somewhat creamy presence in the mouth; generous, chewy grapefruit and citrus; resiny, you can taste some oiliness in this; nicely toasted cedar and woody presence; soft, creamy character, minimal astringency, and quite zesty; solid stuff. Lasting bitter finish: grapefruit, minerals, and lasting cedar notes; toasty, woody.

750ML Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy copper color with a large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellentl lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus hop and woody aroma. Medium body with slick texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy cedar oil and bittersweet hop flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a change of pace standout beer.

750ml from Fogdog. Pours hazy golden copper with massive thick off-white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, orange zest, pine, floral hops, and cedar. Flavor is grapefruit, citrus rinds, pine, bitter hops, cedar, and light caramel. For such a massive head the mouthfeel is actually a little under carbonated. Flavor finishes with bitter hops and nice cedar flavor. Cedar adds a very nice quality to the IPA flavor profile. I wish more brewers would experiment with different woods. Really solid brew and I love the cedar. The only real flaw is the lack of carbonation in the finish.

Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Cloudy orange amber with a decent sized off-white head. Aroma is like the cedar isle at Home Depot, and hops. Taste is spicy with some grass, cedar and hops.

bottle, thanks to Daknole, pours carmel with a medium frothy off white head. Aroma is soft with grapefruit and citrus hop, some apple cider. Flavor is nice and dry with toasted malt, very bready with nutty character ending moderately bitter with nice pear and apple finish.

Rating #300! 750 ml bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a clear gold/amber with thin off-white ring of a head. Aroma of sweet malt, bread, citrus, pine, and light cedar wood. I taste the cedar more than I smell it. Taste of raw untreated cedar lumber, pine, lemon pledge, sharp hop bite, and slightly sweet. Finishes dry. Crisp bitting carbonation, medium smooth mouthfeel. Good IPA, the cedar is different and it takes some getting used to, but itís interesting and pretty good. Quite complex.
