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.

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.

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!

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 Iím not a fan of the cedar at all.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2011 Dark honey color. Smells of what I assume to be cedar. Pretty good beer this one.

Poured a very cloudy dark orange with a half fingerís worth of head. The aroma is high on cedar and some sweet bread dough. The taste is high on the floral hops up front, with the lighter sweeter cedar coming in on the aftertaste. The carbonation is quite soft as well. Iíve had oak aged ipaís that did not work at all because the tastes contrasted so much. Not so with this one. Excellent combination.

This is by far my favorite IPA, pours a copper color with a one finger white head. Smells of hops, pine and grassy there is some caramel undertones. Taste is glorious there is the hop character a load of grassy and fruity (grapefruit maybe) followed by a bit of the spanish cedar, smoaky, spicy, caramel hard to describe. Finish is not bitter at all which I found as a pleasant surprise.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2011 Thi is simply the best ipa iīve tasted, It has a medium body, an excelente intense aroma with notes of citrusy hops, pine and wood, the flavor is also excelente, perfectly balanced, its dominated by the hop and wood notes but very well supported by the malt caramel notes.

I think I have to give this one a high rating mostly because of the uniqueness. I can smell cedar, and slight hops. Very cloudy darker golden color. Nice amount of head with little lacing on the glass. I can taste slight hops first and stronger cedar after the fact. Wood is not over done here though. Slight carbonation and great finish on the palate. Great beer here. Highly recommended.
