yngwie (14701) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2011
Bottle, 75cl. A hazy, dark golden beer with a foamy, off-white head, two-finger thick. Lots of cedar on the nose. Not much left of the normal IPA aromas. Touch of something bretty too. Cedarish flavor too, some sugary maltyness and a nice bitterness. Spiced. Full-bodied, lightly warming and pleasantly carbonated. Long, cedarish, bitter finish with some spicyness. A really nice beer, but I miss the IPA aromas and flavors. Theyre there, but too subdued. Wonderful cedar aroma and flavor though. Nice. 110917

750 ml bottle at DC local tasting. Courtesy of our generous host nimbleprop, and I liked this one better than he did. Dark golden color, edge head. Aroma of giant black pepper, smoke and ash. Taste is black pepper with a coriander finish. Interesting and unique.

Oakes (13135) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2012
Amber. Basically bright with a thick head that dies down, leaving a thick lace on the glass. Rich woody aroma with earthy, fruity hops - complex nose for an IPA. Heavy cedar character - very woody. The malts are big, slightly sticky and with a biscuity taste. There is a lot of bitterness, too, earthy and with some citrus and resiny notes. Bold brew, my type of IPA.

Rasmus40 (12436) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2011
Cloudy dark orange with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is sweet, caramel, cedar wood and rather hoppy - citrus. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. Ive never had a beer aged on cedar before. It was great and very different from oak aged beers. 290611

brokensail (12169) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Pours a murky orange color with a white head. Cedar aroma is definitely there, but nowhere near as over the top as some cedar beers. Citrus and floral hops with a light pine. Spicy wood, vanilla, and sweet caramel malts. The flavor is relatively the same as the aroma. Cedar is prominent, but not overpowering. Citrus peel, pine bitterness, wood, hints of vanilla, and fairly sweet caramel and toffee malts.

( 750ml bottle, courtesy of ericandersnavy ) Pours a lightly hazy amber body with a moderate white head. Aroma of grapefruit, girly soap/bubble bath, cedar, and florals. Flavor of caramel malt and hops (citrus, herbal, earth) with a bitter, dry cedar finish.
