Can at craft ale house. Pours clear copper with a medium sized white head. The aroma has floral notes, light pine, light citrus. The taste has a nice bitterness followed by this taste of intense cigar box. Absolutely amazing.

Holy shit. This IPA is mind-numbing in terms of... well, just everything, actually. The hazy orange appearance has a touch of bronze that oozes class and sex appeal. Ditto for the woodsy, herbal, citrusy aroma. We haven’t even gotten to the taste, yet. Huge, juicy grapefruit note with lingering tropical tones that are more subtle than the former.Cigar City’s Humidor Series IPA left me dumbfounded. It took the style and made it richer, fruitier. There are some damn fine IPA’s out there, but this brew needs to be on the short list of every self-respecting hophead and craft enthusiast alike.

(Thanks Jay "GodOfThunder") Can. A- Grapefruit, gummy bears, citrus. A- Burnt orange color, clear liquid, minimal head. T- Grapefruit juice, citrus, herbs, bitter. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, juicy finish. O- Being from Nebraska, I always envied those that could get Cigar City. I got lucky and got some in a free beer contest. Holy cow, I was not disappointed. This reminds me of drinking grapefruit juice. Very juicy taste with just the right amount of bitterness. So damn good.

Pours a clear amber. Minimal head. Aroma is pure humidor. Lots of cedar fruits and hops. Taste is a lot cedar and hops. Different but good.

Not sure what to expect but after one sniff and sip it was clear, grapefruit. Great aroma and taste with nice bitterness at the tail end.

Amber pour with an off-white head, The spanish cedar compliments the citrus/floral hop aromas perfectly! Flavor is hoppy at first but then fades to notes of cedar and malt. Very tasty and well-balanced. Very easy to drink.

Weezel (175) - Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Love this beer. The scent out of the glass is tropical hops and that super clean wood. The cedar shines through on the taste coming in very assertive but in perfect balance with the hoppy base of the Jai Alai. The way the cedar mingles with a great IPA is fantastic and super refreshing on the palate. Superb beer.

Best IPA by Cigar City! Beautiful orange color, very smooth going down. Perfectly balanced. Lots of flowers and herbs on the nose. Big taste of grapefruit and cedar. Delish!

Shared 12 oz. bottle, poured to snifters, showing a clear, rosy/copper color, with a modest layer of bubbly, off white foam, and spots & strands of lacing. In keeping with the brewery’s theme, the aroma was of a cedar lined humidor, with maybe just a hint of shade wrap, and a touch of estery sweetness as mango. Light to medium bodied, with somewhat soft carbonation, the taste continued the cedar, offered some citrusy/grapefruit tartness that compensated for the lighter effervescence, and complemented the moderate hop bitterness. Played nicely on the senses, ..I liked it!
