3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Taster while tailgating. Nose is my garden and that means nothing to you. First sip was aroo? Then I read the description: cedar. Woody, pine and hops. Weird but I like it. "It’s like yelling at someone to relax" best eavesdropping comment I’ve ever heard.

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

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
