Oakes (14938) - 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.

bhensonb (13733) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Bottle from Josh. He’ll 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 isn’t 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 thanks to hopscotch. Pours orange amber with white head. Nose is strong cigar box cedar with floral hops and citrus. Taste is cedar, hops, citrus and nice caramel malt balance.

Tmoney99 (13159) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2009
750ML Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy copper color with a large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellentl lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus hop and woody aroma. Medium body with slick texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy cedar oil and bittersweet hop flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a change of pace standout beer.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
mcberko (12996) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2011
UPDATED: APR 18, 2011 750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany), pours hazy bright orange with a big white head. Aroma is very spicy, with chili pepper-like spice, slight citrus and cedar. Flavour is also very spicy, with the cedar upfront and citrus hops further back. The barrels give this a very odd flavour and texture. Interesting, but not close to as good as the regular Jai Alai.

Ratman197 (12818) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2010
750 ml botle poured a hazy golden amber with a lasting off white head. Aromas of biscuit, orange, pink grapefruit, cedar and light pine. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of biscuit, grapefruit, orange and cedar with a smooth lingering bitter finish. One of the better Cigar City beers I’ve tried!
