UPDATED: OCT 18, 2010 bottle. This is a beautiful beer. pours an orange brown with a nice big long lasting foamy beige head. leaves some nice lace on the glass. aroma is like walking into a a humidor where caramel and grapefruit are being sold. Flavor is a big cedary, pine mixture. nice body. big and creamy mouthfeel. This beer is very well put together. More depth than the regular jai alai. Hits on a lot of different cylinders. Between this beer and japanese classic, i have a new found respect and love for cedar aged IPAs. This beer is awesome.

Tallahassee, Fl. - Liquor Loft - 750 ml bottle. Dark orange murky pour with a sticky off white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Fresh fragrant aroma loads of spruce and hints of mint and just a brief mention of the cedar that is prominent in the flavor. Excellent flavor with some nice subtle juicy grapefruit notes. some mint, a touch of apricots. Cedar notes are prominent and blend in nicely. Balanced somewhat with some malty notes - but is just a bit leaning more to the hoppy side - but no complaints. Mouthfeel is full, with just the right amount of potency and stickiness. Well done.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Draft @ Brick Store - This was pretty freakin’ tasty. Cedar does interesting things to an IPA and it works so well together. Gives a definite unique earthiness that works really well with the already floral hops. Lots of tangy fruit flavors here running the gamut from peaches to apricots, and it just works all around, could have been a little happier with a bit more maltiness, but this was delicious for a glass.

Bottle courtesy of Immy on 07/18/2009. Clear dark amber body with a medium frothy off-white head. Sweet cedar and floral, citrus hop aroma. Big cedar flavor, lots of floral, citrus, and resiny hop flavor. Medium light body with moderately high carbonation.

25.4 oz bottle. Cloudy orange with a pocked ivory head. Nose is pink grapefruit, mandarins and Juicy Fruit gum with that beautiful CCB cedar spice. Medium body with a tang. Taste features prominent cedar, grapefruit pith, apricot and finally pine. Maybe i got spoiled by the guava version but i found this a bit too weighted to the spicy hoppy side. Still among my top IPAs.

TheBeerGod (5220) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Bottle courtesy of Immy at Immy’s Backyard Throwdown. Coppery pour with a short white head. Aroma is big cedar and spicy hops with some light citrus and hop resins. Lots of cedar. Home-run in the aroma department! Taste is spicy cedar notes, malty, semi-sweet, resinous, and citrus fruits. Body is medium-full and bubbly. Ends with more semi-sweet malts, citrus fruit, light caramel, spicy hops, and soft cedar.

Much thanks to Meredith! Very nice aroma. Sweet and floral taste. Some caramel. It gives it a solid malty taste. Bitterness very pronounced. Honey. Very nice beer. Delicious.

unclemike (2222) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUL 27, 2009
Clear amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head Aroma is sweet and floral with notes of citrus, grapefruit, wood, floral hops, caramel, honey, spice and some non-descript, hard to describe sweetness. Medium-bodied with a spicy lemon flavor lingering in the finish. Awesome beer

Suttree (5127) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 26, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2009 Orange, thin ring of foam. Huge aroma of grapefruit and cedar right off the bat. Really tasty - A lot of citrusy hops at first, complimented nicely by the cedar. The cedar also gives it a slightly salty or sea air aroma and flavor, as well. Really tasty, I really want to try the regular IPA now...

Bottle from sebletitje & fogdog (summer SS), thanks guys. Poured hazy orangish brown with a big white head. Lots of lace. Aroma of spiced cedar is huge, some pine hop, malt sweetness, and citrus. Taste is really piney resin hoppy, citrus, cedar, and light spice. Cedar is really interesting here. Maybe should have had this without cedar first to have a good frame of reference. Mouth is full and sticky. Overall, a very interesting and tasty brew.
