Got in a trade from Markwise. I get what some say about ammonia. But thatís a harsh word to say seeing how ammonia is horrible to smell. But I do get this fruity (ripe fruit) smell with something that has to be the cedar. Iíd say it smells like nuts...raw nuts. I get the ammonia thing. The only reason why I agree slightly with that is because Iíve made lobster stock plenty of times in my day and when you do, you get this strange ammonia aroma when straining...but not a horrible thing just natural. The appearance is wonderful. Hazy gold with a head that stays around. It tastes really balanced. It has so many qualities and not a one that dominates. This is the first brew where I get a slight soapiness yet itís perfect. It ends with a lingering bitterness and after you sit for a few minutes it the remainder of sweetness. I canít say itís my favorite but it is delicious.

Pours a nice cloudy copper color with a nice froathy head. Has a strong cedar taste with floral hop overtures. Finishes with a slight smokey after taste.

The cedar aroma jumps out of the glass like chupacabra grabbing for your throat. This chicita bonita iis spicy - grab the cigar out of the humidor and inhale. Good stuff indeed.

Definitely get the fresh hop aroma even though this beer has been aged. Aroma is fresh hop and cedar, strong cedar, but not overpowering. Peppery. It seems cedar would be a great accompaniment to any summer ale. Pours cloudy, golden orange and takes a second or two to settle. This got me excited. I hate IPAís that are clear. White head. Lots of spicy and cedar notes. Some sweetness but not a whole lot. You can tell this one has the soul of an IPA but the cedar expands the palate and weaves in beautifully. Although, almost technically perfect it lacks special something to make me want to drink it daily.

On tap @ Mr. Beeryís in Sarasota: Pours a deep copper orange with a medium frothy off-white head that has excellent lacing throughout. Hoppy aroma is citrusy with hints of cedar. Smooth creamy texture sets up an excellent flavor of mild bitterness of citrus with the highlight being the cedar notes that linger from start to finish. An excellent twist on barrel aging!

Incredible IPA. Great nose with a little cedar funk on the nose and back to the aftertaste. Very silky mouth feel. Interesting taste that is not over hopped but has a great presence. Very nice

Hazy orange pour. Smells like a tropical fruit salad on a cedar plate. The cedar smell is bit strong. Taste is the same with a creamy palate, much like the white oak treatment. Taste is much better balanced than the nose. Another great one from CC.

Appearance: Fairly clear orange sunburst with honey folds and a 3 finger off white crown that shows lots of lace and retention. Smell: Loads of character here. Good floral and herbal hop notes crash into a sophisticated and sexy cedar chip humidor like quality. Tobacco comes to mind but only associatively, it is the cedar chips triggering that more than anything. Taste: Not as pungent as the nose, but again a seemless blend of hops and cedar. Iím really impressed by the combination. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and well carbonated. A touch too crisp for my liking. Drinkability: Nice flavor profile, crisp mouthfeel, and an abv below 8% makes this brew score well in the drinkability department. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-21-2009

Pours a orange amber with huge fluffy white head. Nose is subtle cedar. Also citrus and pine cone. Taste is smooth with hints of cedar. Nice hop Notes and malty on the finish. Great beer!
