UDBeernut (2509) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2012
bottle poured into my Sierra Nevada snifter. a: murky tan with a large robust off white head with amazing retention. This head of this critter does not subside. Lacing rings the glass. s: caramel, citrus, pine t: caramel and citrus molded by a pine (Iím assuming cedar) backbone. Slight tropical fruit and a bit of a sour note (brett). More sweet that I was expecting but tasty none the less. m: medium bodied, plenty of carbonation to help it down the hatch.

Thanks to markwise for this crowler. The pour is on the copper/amber end of the spectrum, with slightly lower carbonation than expected, which isnít too surprising. The nose is top-notch: cedar closet, my grandmaís sweaters, potpourri, sweet honeyed tea, pepper. Humidor IPA should really be relabeled Humidor Humidor. Massive cedar lumbers all the way through the start, mid-palate, finish, & Iím sure, when I get up to piss in the middle of the night, Iíll still have splinters wedged in my molars. Other than that thereís a vast ocean of sweet malts, sweet honeycomb, faint bell of bitterness ringing (far, far off), & not much else. Iíve loved the dark, malty Humidor beers in the series, but it just doesnít work as well with an IPA. Luckily I like cedar & sticky sweet stuff, so itís still goodÖbut miles wide of the style marker.

Svesse (7679) - Hšsselby, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2016
(Bottle) Hazy amber colour with big, frothy, off-white head. Fruity, malty, woody nose with citrus, orange peel, grapefruit, apricots, caramel, rye and fresh aromas of cedar wood. Malty, fruity taste with orange peel, grapefruit, apricot marmalade, caramel, rye, balanced flavours of cedar wood and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Very tasty and well balanced IPA. The cedar wood gives it an extra dimension and stays in good balance, never taking over from the hops. Just a great beer!

DandyWolfFloyd (991) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2015
Aroma - caramel malt, hops, citrus, spiced. Appearance - orange color body frothy off-white head, solid lacing. Taste - balance of hop bitters and some sweetness - some peppery qualities and citrus. Palate - medium body, texture is oily, carbonation is soft, the finish has nice hop bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not bad - not my favorite, but it won't be the worst beer I drink tonight. It's my first beer from Cigar City - it won't be my last. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours hazy orange with a strong white head from a can, a rare full 5 for appearance. Nose has raisin, tropical fruit, orange and berries. Malty and bitter with citrus and hay. Sweet with full body, slick texture and soft carbonation. A very nice IPA that i will return to if given the chance.

Have had bottled and canned. No detailed notes - entering some local stuff Iíve missed. The cedar and rye is not as heavy as in some of the other Humidor series beers. Fairly refreshing despite the "gimmick."

My 100 th rating. One of my favorite beers. Big hop aroma with mango grass and pine. Evident Spanish cedar in nose and flavor. Everything in flavor last through out finish. Perfect balance.

12 oz can into a tulip. The pour is an ambery orange color with a lot of sediment and a beautiful bright white head. The aroma is pretty great. There is a lot of tropical fruit sweetness, some good prune or cherry on the back end, and a nice woody funkiness that would be from the cedar. It's really good. The flavor is much different. There is a bitterness that isn't from bright hops. It's just a soft deep bitterness. It's really good. The fruits aren't too prevalent here, but the cedar dominates. Really woody and lightly spicy. The mouth feel is great! It's a thicker medium body with a soft carbonation and a delightful lingeringly fruity and bitter aftertaste. Very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
