Draft sample. Hazy gold color with a sticky white head and nice lacing. Aroma reminds me of a sweet IPA with citrus notes. You get some cedar spice in the flavor that reminds me of grapefruit pith. Pretty good.

Cloudy orange pour with foamy white head. The aroma is hoppy with mild yeast and some fruit. Flavors are somewhat woody, tropical hops, mango, apricot.

On tap @ Fate! Beautiful burnt tangerine pour with a dense eggshell cap that left complex webbing inside the glass. Extremely aromatic with dried cedar plank, Ponderosa, orange peel, lemon zest, and grapefruit pith taking the stage. Freshly squeezed grapefruit, ripe tangelo, and even a little mango or papaya accented by raw wood and evergreen. Damn these guys are good!

The aroma could be a little more pronounced, but it is still very much there. The taste though. God fucking damn the taste. The cedar is very up front, but yet still very balanced. Doesn't sound right I'm sure. But either way I an very impressed. This would pair so good with a cigar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

At the brewery, hazy burnt orange pour. Aroma of cedar, grapefruit, and some grassy hops. Taste is heavy with a fresh squeezed grapefruit flavor and some cedar bite. So freakin good!

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2013 On draught at Fate for American Craft Beer Week. Pours a hazy orange-brown color with an eggshell head. Aroma is big cedar, resin, citrus. Taste is sweet with some bitterness and Cedar. Medium bodied, more than their regular offerings. Very balanced and quite excellent.
