COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re about to light up Florida with this Cigar City collaborative brew. Our Belgian yeast tangos with Anaheim and Marash peppers along with loads of citrusy hops to create an ale full of spice. Aged on Spanish cedar to salute our mutual love for wood!

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber, thanks to Craig. Tastes like an ESB. There is a ton of malt and bitterness rounds it out. There is an earthy character, maybe from the peppers.

Dogbrick (11327) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2013
On draught at the Cigar City tap room. The beer pours a clear pale copper color with a medium off-white head that dissipates gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, spices and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, chili peppers and roast malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy and subtle pepper aftertaste. Decent overall.

BMan1113VR (7916) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle. Crystal clear golden hued pour with an eggshell hued head that lasts. Aromas are earthy, lightly fruity, dried hay and spices, medium toasted malt. Flavors are of earthy notes, slightly musty, really subtle heat, black pepper, mildly vegetal, cedar, fruity yeast. Medium lively carbonation, pretty dry. Odd beer.

gravit8 (12) - Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Very decent and drinkable. The details of my tasting out of a bomber late one night are hazy, but I recall a distant memory of heat, just a faint hint of it, with a nice, light sweeter malt texture and clean finish. The bottle went quite rapidly.

suprchunk (2949) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Caramel colored pour. Small off-white head. Not much lacing. Smell is flowery. Some malt notes and a vegetal presence. Taste is a bitter malty flavor with some flowery notes in it. Not much spice or heat. Sweet finish with a bit of astringency. Okay.

This beer was a dissapointment. All I could taste was a slight pepperyness and that was it. Nothing else really came out in this beer.

AxlLives (288) - Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2013
22 oz bottle - pours clear orange yellow with large white tan head, lasting and bubbly. Immediate aromas are of sweet fruit and cedar, with yeasty goodness mixed in. Taste is all citrus fruit, little bit of spice and heat, slight smoke. Juicy finish. Decent nit spectacular. Here comes the heat!

Wegro (332) - Fresno, California, USA - DEC 10, 2013
interesting beer. it is actually very cedar-y like it advertises itself to be. like other reviewers have said, it has a vegetal quality to it. i like that it’s different, but why somebody would purchase more than once is beyond me.

Butters (4039) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Clear orange pour with decent layer of white head. Nose of cedar, musty grapes, and a belgian tripel. Flavor is more cedar and citrusy hops. No real chile flavor, but the heat is definitely there in the heartburn that it induces. Overall, not anything I feel the need to have again, but this is certainly an interesting exercise in how to infuse restrained peppers and cedar notes into a beer.

ASak10 (56) - Colorado, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Pours a golden amber with a thick foamy head that disappears fairly quick. Aroma is mostly malt and bread with a slight cherry hint. Taste is a slightly sweet ale with a slight hint of peppers and oak, but not much. Overall a decent ale on its own, but for a beer that is supposed to be chilies it is lacking. I really wanted to like this beer because I love New Belgium and love Cigar City but I was slightly let down. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
