superspak (2455) - Michigan, USA - NOV 18, 2012
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/17/2012. Pours extremely hazy orange amber color with a nice 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big orange, mango, orange rind, grapefruit, pineapple, caramel, cedar, floral, grass, toast, and herbal earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great hop complexity and good balance. Lots of sweet hops with minimal pine or spiciness balance. Taste of big orange zest, pineapple, grapefruit, orange rind, caramel, floral, grass, toast, light cedar, light pine, and herbal spiciness. Good amount of citrus bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pineapple, caramel, toast, light pine, grass, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance of hop flavors with a nicely balanced malt backbone; zero cloying flavors noticed after the finish. Cedar wasn’t too noticeable, but it probably also smoothed out the beer flavors. Medium carbonation and body; with a nice creamy, lightly slick, and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is extremely well hidden with pretty much zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent IPA! Great hop complexity and flavor balance; very smooth and easy to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering as I expected.

750ml bottle purchased at Knightly Spirits in Orlando, Florida. Golden-orange, long lasting large off-white head, excellent lacing. Aroma is of citrus, caramel malts, good sweetness, grapefruit, pepper. Flavour is nicely hopped, lots of orange and lemon zest, grapefruit, some caramel sweetness, quite peppery. Hoppy mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, lots of hops, some wood. Nice, a refreashing IPA, about the same as the regular IPA.

haddon90 (1435) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a nice white head. Smooth, hoppy aroma with a hint of wood aging. Very subtle hops aroma with a strong, citrus finish. Hint of some cedar in the background. Such an amazing, crisp IPA. Really puts a lot of other IPAs to shame.

12 oz can. Tasted on 6/2/14. Can from Chae. The aroma did have some hints of cedar, pine, & maybe grapefruit. Taste was great with a bitter bite from the hops at the end. Nice IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

schlitzfaced (52) - Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Poured from can into pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a small thin head. leaves a nice lacing on glass. Aroma is Cedar, maybe even a hint of pepper. Hoppy but the cedar definitely comes through. This is an interesting beer in a good way.

JasonNYC (23) - New York, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Sold me on cedar as awesome for aging. Tastes of grapefruit peel but blended with the cedar. (Is that actual pulp suspended in the beer? Strange, but I like it.) Quite bitter. One of my go- to IPAs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (1700) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2014
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.
