aroma of pine and smooth finish of wood that is initially sharp. as the sample opens, more and more wood comes to light. flavor is stinging bitterness all around and yet more savory wood. i begin to realize that what initially seemed to be hop character is also wood and soon the cedar has enveloped me. hop bill is clearly well played against the cedar, as oak IPAs have failed me before either for the use of oak or the strains themselves.

Pours hazy copper color with white head. Cedar and citrus hop aromas. The cedar adds a nice woodiness much different than oak. Citrus hops, cedar and pepper are the dominant flavors. Finishes with sweet malts. Medium body with average carbonation. A very different and very good IPA.

Bottle from Josh. Heíll join one of these days. Pours a hazy sort of blood orange color with a good, stiff finely bubbled off-white head. Lots of citrus, lowkey caramel, and fruit for aromas, along with something herby/woody. Medium body with frothy creamy carbonation. Flavor is mixed hop, mild caramel, and it moves to something woody. Never "ate" cedar before. Turns the ale astringent. Very. Very different from oak. Finishes toward floral, so the bitter isnít what it started as. But with the wood, hop and astringency this is one tasty brew. Note: gave palate a 5 cause this is so new and pleasingly different to my mouth.

Bottle shared by mfielden on BA - thanks Mark! Pours a cloudy golden-amber with noticeable sediment and a creamy white head that leaves some nice foam. Aroma is citrusy hops, sweet malt, and lots of wood. Flavor is sweet pale malt and cedar balanced by grapefruity hops. A little spice as well, especially lemon pepper. Palate is nice and smooth with soft carbonation. Another winner from CCB.

Cloudy copper appearance with a soapy, seductive head. Brilliant aroma of cedar and fresh, green hops. Loud grapefruit, pine, lemon, and brown sugar sweetness with a rich, bitter aftertaste that lands me in a humidor in the heart of little Cuba, searching for the perfect compliment. Truly perfect.

Bomber with big thanks to Beerlando. Pours a copper-amber with a good deal of dense white head. Very thick foam on this beer, and itís not going anywhere soon! Aroma of cedar is evident from the moment I open the bottle. Aroma is a pleasant mixture of that same cedar and citrusy (grapefuit) hops and malt. Initial flavor is bitter hops, but then a wonderful roasty ceadr malt kicks in followed by a sweet, almost cinammon-spicey finish. Great mouthfeel and wonderful body on this beer. The alcohol comes through in the middle palate and is warming a pleasant. This is putting up a fight to be my favorite IPA so far! Excellent smooth, subtle, smokey quality to this brew, and I am very thankful, again, to Beerlando for sending it my way!
