Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. The look is orangish in color, beige colored head. The smell is cedar, citrus, malts, and caramel. The taste is malts, hops, citrus, slight wood, and some bitterness.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 9, 2009
750ml bottle thanks to HOPSHUNTER. Pours a bright copper orange color with a nice foamy white head that receedes leaving heavy lacing and a light film on the brew. Nose is very mellow and pleasant. Some garden notes and fresh, herbal and floral hop notes. light fruits and sugar sweetness. Palate is full and fluffy with a very clean, crisp finish and a light bitterness. FLavors are floral hop notes and a light sugary note, but as with the aroma, it is very mellow and soothing almost. Im assuming this is the cedar in action. It is just so mellow but so easy to drink and quite subtle, but wonderful flavors and aromas. so glad I got to try this one.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - OCT 7, 2009
Slightly hazy orange and red pour with a white head. Very hoppy and woody aroma. Cedar flavored with bitter malt and a hoppy finish. Not bad but a little weird.

JK (4522) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2009
I think this was a success all around with the Minnesota crew. Gold color. Hops nose. Flavor has bitter hops, with a medicinal quality, and a taste & aroma of wet cedar. Dry and quite bitter.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 5, 2009

Source:750 mL bottle at a Nashville tasting.
Glass:Fullers snifter.
Appearance:Hazy light amber pour with a two finger white head.
Aroma:Combination of citrus hops and a humidor. Cedar and tobacco.
Flavor:Heavy cedar and tobacco presence, with a mild citrus finish.
Palate:Medium body with solid carbonation.
Overall:I was the only one at the tasting who didn’t care for this one. The cedar was too prominent in my opinion.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Bottle shared by ygtbsm94: Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a clingy-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh grapefruity resiny hops and some fresh woody cedar notes with some underlying caramel malty sweetness. Starts with good fullness and malty sweetness with a juicy fresh hoppy balance and woody cedar complexity before a drier earthy bittersweet finish. A unique and enjoyable IPA.

BuckeyeBoy (2837) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 2, 2009
Bottle Pours out a hazy peach juice color topped with a small sand head. Aroma was oak and ceder notes. The aroma reminds me of my wifes hope chest that sits at the foot of out bed. Taste the wood, some bread notes, along with some wet citrus hops. A bitter end on this one. Thanks ditmier

tennisjoel (1180) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2009
Sample provided by Skyview. Thanks! Pour is amber orange with a decent sized head. Cedar wood. Strong pine and oak, complimenting the citrus flavors of a regular IPA. Very unique and really a wonderful effort here. Probably up there with my favorite CC beers of the night. Exquisite!

coyotehunter (678) - , Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2009
750ml bottle. Pours a dirty orange with a big ass head. Aromas waver between lemons, oranges, some weird ass melon smell, and more citrus. Taste is about the same, dominated by citrus. A hint of wood shows through a bit...must be the cedar, as its a strange wood flavor. Very different for an IPA, but its definitely a good different.
