On tap @ Mr. Beery’s 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

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. I’m 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 dark amber with big frothy white head. Aroma is cedar, citrus hops, peaches, and smoke. Taste is citrus, grapefruit, black pepper, and a smokey cedar bite. Amazing IPA.

Murky copper pour with a half inch off-white head. Tons of citrus hop swim in a sea of cedar. Like opening up a cigar box or a cedar chest. Taste is similar to the original Jai Alai, but turned completely on its head. Nice balance between sweet and bitter. The cedar adds a completely different dimension. Very complex. It lends a soft, mellow, vanilla and wood flavor to the beer. Unbelievable. Nice medium body with a touch of sticky resin. Amazing beer.

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.

Bottle, extra from newcigarz. Mostly clear amber with a huge off-white head. Aroma is citrus, caramel, wood. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, with the cedar coming in quite strongly, some alcohol as well. Finish is mostly dry and hoppy, a little sweet. Full bodied, moderate carbonation. This drinks like a big DIPA, and I’m not a fan of the cedar at all.

Bottle. Pours dark orange-brown with a slightly off white head that leaves bold lacing on the glass. Aroma is orange, lemon zest, spice, hints of caramel, and the spanish cedar. It smells as though I am in a walk-in humidor. Flavor is grapefruit upfront followed by spiciness and slight hints of vanilla. On the palate the beer is extremely bright and crisp with the hops that are enhanced by the spanish cedar, there is a malt backbone that provides just the right amount of sweetness so there is no lingering bitterness. I wish I had a cigar to pair. This is simply wonderful!
