3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can(!); canned March 2014; served in a lager glass.
Excellent semi-creamy head over a deep amber liquid full of suspended particles.
Very hoppy aroma of the piney/citrus persuasion.
Feel: smooth and full for style.
O: tamer, more interesting, and easy to drink than the very fine Jai alai Ale that serves as the base.

Can picked up in Philly. Pours a clear orange color. Nose is wood, citrus, hops. Flavor follows with some spice in there. Bitter finish. Nothing too exciting here.

Une belle bouteille partagée avec slovak. Ici, c’Est un liquide cuivrée ambrée avec un semblant de mousse. Un nez de boîte à cigare et de spaghetti aux tomates. La bouche offre des saveurs de pin et de cèdre. Une drôle de bière qui ferait honneur aux Libanais.

From da can, no comment on appearance. Huge aroma of wood, cedar, fair amount of hop character, earthy and piney, followed by a decent amount of caramel malt character. Very cedary flavor as well, accompanied by a smokey character. Moderate hop bitterness, again mostly earthy. Drinks pretty good. Cats are awesome.

Wow this is a interesting IPA. It’s a deep amber color, has a bunch of lingering sediment giving it a slightly hazy look. It has a pleasantly sweet aroma with hints of wood and pine. The taste has a good piney bitterness to it. As it lingers there is a slight spice that comes through as well as the cedar flavor. Finishes on the dryer side. Quite tasty and different.

If you like cigars and Spanish cedar as a tasting note, you’ll love this brew. Pours a nice amber color, slightly hazy, with white head. Cedar, flowery notes, citrus, and pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. The cedar is very pronounced on this beer, and pairs it extremely well with a cigar or without.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2014 Pours somewhat hazy dark golden with half finger of wispy head. Nose is lots of grapefruit, floral hops, cedar, I totally get the humidor Spanish cedar cigar box note. Taste starts off with grapefruit and citrus, then I get a ton of cedar and wood, then we get that bitter grapefruit peel and woody cigar box on the finish, also I get cinnamon and more cedar in the aftertaste. Balanced between the bitter grapefruit peel and he sweetness of the fruit, and a lot of cedar and wood smoothing it out. Very cool take on an ipa. Sweetens and fruiter as it warms.

Poured from the can into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a deep amber-copper color with tons of noticeable, cloudy sediment throughout, and a very large foamy-creamy off-white head with great retention, and excellent lacing and cling. The aroma was a blend of citrus and floral notes, with some grain and yeast, all set within the sweet, woody, humidor scent. The beer was fairly bitter with citrus and grainy notes, but also a modest sweet humidor flavor for a nice blend. It was a very lively beer with a good, filling mouthfeel, a touch on the watery-wet side, but with a dry finish and great carbonation.
