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, 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.

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2012
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!

Pours hazy glowing copper with a finger of white head that quickly dissipates and laces glass. Smell is pine, lemon, orange, tobacco and cedar. Taste is bitter hops, cedar, tobacco and grapefruit Medium body, medium carbonation This is so unique and different I love it.

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.
