This hoppy pale ale starts out as 30th Street Pale Ale and then undergoes Spanish cedar aging. Wood aging imparts an intense cedar aroma which dominates the dry hop. The flavor contributions from the Spanish cedar include peppercorn spiciness and a tannic dry mouth feel that makes the hop flavor and bitterness linger in the finish. The wood adds a fun and unique twist on a classic American Strong Pale Ale, “The wood is good!” Hops used: Warrior, El Dorado, Cascade

Draft at the Porter Beer Bar in Atlanta. Pint glass. Pours a deep orange-amber with a pillow head. Good lacing. Strong aroma of cedar, citrus, pine and biscuit. The taste was not quite as strong cedar as the aroma. Pine and citrus hops came through. Nice spicy and floral finish. Slightly bitter. Good, but not as good as Humidor from Cigar City.

A way above average pale ale to start with, more complex in this format. The cedar woodsiness and peppery finish cover a little of the hop awesomeness that is the base, but this is also an insanely complex brew. Smooth, easy, yet contemplative

Foxbush (1268) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Draft at Mirior Restaurant in Middlesex County This is a nice APA. The manager said it was a Virginia Beach beer. The ale poured a clear amber with a small white head. There was no lacing. There was an aroma of wood and the taste of floral hops and resin were evident. The ale had a medium body and average carbonation. The finish is clean, dry and pleasant.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark orange amber with a bubbly head and heavy lacing. Taste is strong malt at the onset, with strong citrus hops pushing in during the palate. There is an undercurrent that reminds me of cedar chests. All moves with ease to a lingering bitter finish that cleans the palate. Great food beer.

On tap at Rock and Run 3-30-14. Slightly hazy amber with a bone white head that settles to a ring and leaves excellent lacing. Slight vanilla in aroma with citrus, some light fruit and wood. Taste is citrus with biscuit malt and a hint of vanilla. Good amount of citrus rind bitterness along with some wood and black pepper spiciness. Finishes very dry with the pepper spiciness and a bitter that builds. Mouthfeel is light/medium but creamy with medium/high carbonation. Well integrated flavors that add some uniqueness to the style. Would have again.

Taster on tap at Party Town. Orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Awersome, big grapefruit, cedar, cigar box aroma. Light caramel malt. Medium to bigger body. Good, smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry in the finish. Moderate sweet taste, moderate bitter. Very tasty, complex, refreshing stuff.

Tap pours unclear golden orange with some whiteish fizz. It smells lightly of citrus hops and some spice grind grains and cedar. The flavor is very interesting, the hops are over the cedar but it is definitely noticeable and somewhat pleasant. The spice and earthy nature of the cedar blends well with the hops and the grain adds just barely enough to bracket it together. There is a musty fruity element that pops in when cold that brightens the beer and the dry floral and citrus bitter elements linger for quite some time. Caught a strange hint of bubblegum at one point. Really better than I had thought.

Hazy tan, fruity and a little bit piney, woody, with a lot of berryish fruits. Sweet malt notes. Pretty dry, woody refreshing finish.
