Pours with a cloudy orange amber color beneath a fluffy off-white head. The aroma largely features fresh citric hops and an intriguing subtle woodiness from the cedar. The cedar pops out of the flavor at first, particularly in the finish, but it gradually blends into the prominent hop character. Honestly, I thought I was crazy, but it truly tasted just like fresh grapefruit juice to me after a while. This wonderful and interesting flavor combination, along with a pleasantly mouth-filling texture, made this one a truly enjoyable drinking experience.

This beer is one of the best. Super strong. Goregous three finger head. Lacing. Not much aroma. The flavor is thick. The palate is full bodied IPA, balanced well. The cigar cedar parts of this beer take a great beer to all-star/hof status.

10-06-11 Bouteille de 750ml directement de Floride: Belle apparence orangée, trouble, avec une effervescence normale et une légère mousse. Semble épaisse et veloutée. Puissants arômes de pamplemousse avec des notes de houblon et une touche de miel. Moyennement sucrée, avec une bonne amertume sur le thème du pamplemousse et des agrumes. Bonne note surette également bien présente. Corps moyen, avec une texture veloutée et asser épaisse. Bonne carbonisation et finale bien balancée, quoique légèrment trop surette. Froide, le pamplemousse est trop puissant, par contre, plus la biere réchauffe, plus le pamplemousse s’estompe et laisse place a plus de complexité avec des notes de boisé non-conventionel. Un peu déçu de cette bière, mais très content de l’avoir essayé.

On tap at Falling Rock for GABF week. Bitter and citrus aroma. A bit of woodiness and lots of citrus. The cedar really balanced out the rest of the bitterness and makes the entire thing really well without anything being overpowering. It’s really easy drinking and awesome.

Draught @ the brewery. slightly hazy tan pour with a thin white head. Aromas of pine, wood and spice. Citrus hop flavors up front followed by a nice,dry, woody finish. The cedar really comes out at the end. God stuff.

Bottle Shared with Gabe. Poured A nivce orange color with medium head. Aroma was strong cedar wood and hops. Taste was weird, kinda like smoked cedar and a hoppy IPA. Texture was smooth and not bad to drink. Unique for sure.

Aroma dominated by cedar with strong earty hops. Pours amber-red with a nice lingering head. The cedar puts a significant spin on the beer, almost too much, just undermatched by the bitterness. Med sweetness and bitterness. Hoppy cedar lingers on in the finish. Very good beer, but I think the Jai Alai is just not big enought o stand up to the cedar, still darn good.

Very nice orange hue with some dense white head - good retention, and some very spotty lacing. Aroma is excellent - smooth slightly piney hops are the primary element here. Flavor is a bit bitter, but not overwhelming - the cedar aging really does change the profile of the beer nicely. Very enjoyable - well carbonated, but has a certain smooth quality to it as well. Would definitely drink this one again...
