4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled, thanks baggio! Cloudy amber, creamy head. Rich cedar and grapefruit aroma. Mid-sweet with solid, vital malt. The combination o cedar and grapefruit is superb, the bitterness is evident, but nothing is ever assaulting - only relaxed yet concentrated. I’m so glad someone picked up this Japanese concept - especially someone as talented as Cigar City. This is probably the tastiest IPA I’ve ever had!

Hazy amber beer. Light frothy off white head. Palate is just a little soft. Remarkably fresh grapefruit underpinned by a little fresh orange. The cedar imparts richness and takes the edge of the hop bitterness. Finishes soft with rich grapefruit. Very nice!
