Pours golden with thin white head. Nose is dank hops, sticky pine, weed. Flavor is sweet sticky dank weedy hops, pine, hints of floral hops, sweet caramel. Finishes super smooth with slight bitterness. Unbelieveably good.

On draft at Cigar City poured a golden color, aromas of wet dank hops, some light carmael, light malt, and more hops. Flavors are the same, not overpowering, but some nice floral and pine hops are in the aftertaste, solid beer.

Pours pale yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of dank hops and cedar. Taste follows, taste like a humidor pale ale but I'm not sure this is a cedar beer. So good

Tap @ CCB Tampa Airport... Poured vibrant golden/amber with a thick white head. Nose had earthy, herbal, warm cedar wood tones. Citrus and earthy hop spicing meshed well with cedar tones which combined to create a pleasant vegetal note. Some bread-like grains for balance with little sweetness.

Draught at the Cigar City Tampa Airport bar. Some good Cascade and pine in the nose. Thin honey color with small head. Strong Cascade hop initial; mild buttery flavor in mid, along with some tobacco and mint; smooth rich final. Medium body, very well-balanced stuff. Hopped up to an IPA level, but not overly bitter. Served a bit too cold.
