COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weíre 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!

Pours a clear orangy amber with a thick but effervescent white head. Aroma is fruity and sweet with a peppery hint. Flavor is mainly fruity, a little sweet; the pepper component is subdued so it doesnít assault your tongue, but you definitely know that some zingy pepper is in there. A hint of caramel makes its appearance as well. Texture is fairly fizzy but a tad thin. OK, not a great one, but give it a try.

The smell had hints of peppers, however the taste seemed to lack this. The pepper seemed to compete with the hops which was good for the palate, but bad for the beer. Overall this was an ok beer, but I would only recommend it to people who like beer in the lower ibu range, because the pepper seemed to reduce the flavor provided by the hops.

Iphonephan (3858) - McLean, Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2013
In draft at the Alamo Drafthouse in Ashburn VA. Pours a clear amber with an ecru head. Malty nose. Vinous flavors but not much flavor of chilies. Medium body. Some bitterness in the finish.

22 oz bomber poured into a snifter glass. Pours a clear copper with a two-finger white head and leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops (grapefruit and lemon), bready malts and doughy yeast, light spices (ginger and clove), black pepper, and slight caramel. Taste is a little spicy with black pepper and a hint of cinnamon, floral hops, a fair amount of bready malt bordering on cereal, citrus (mostly orange), slight bit of wood in the background. Nice bit of pepper burn in the finish. Nothing too hot and certainly not overwhelming. Pretty long slightly bitter finish of citrus, bready malts, and a bit of pepper burn. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation. Very nice overall. Definitely different. Canít recall any beers that taste quite like this. Not overwhelming on any level, but still manages to stand out.

Draught. Pours a mostly clear amber color with almost no head on it. Nose has some subtle Belgian yeasty notes to it, but I canít really get any hop elements. For the both the taste and the nose, I get some mild pepper tastes coming through. Decent, but would certainly not become a regular drink.

bottle. ok, the 407th installment of the lips of faith series. pours a slightly hazy gold with a large, fluffy head. a robust aroma with canned fruit syrups, a hint of peanuts and some very faint fresh sliced green pepper. flavor is very hoppy with a fresh cut vegetal green pepper note from the anaheim that is not relatively spicy. a pinch of the red flaked(spicier) marash in the finish that has a dark raisiny note. a bit of honey-like sweetness. not super spicy. not getting much at all from the cedar, which is probably good. could do without the anaheim.

Bottle shared by Darrell. Thanks man. The beer is copper to rusty orange hued with a thin, beige collar. The aroma offers light chilies and spice, earth, mushrooms, malt, citrusy hops. Pretty bland flavor. Would like to see the chili character featured more. Odd and just a bit out of balance. Weird citrus character. Flavor is muddled and messy. I just canít get behind these Lips of Faith beers. Expensive and gimmicky. Iím always happy to try a new beer, but there is no way I would pay for this.

jandd1983 (2887) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was of fruits, some cedar spiciness and chillies. The taste was of cedar spiced fruits and a nice malt mix with a touch of chillies. Nice.

Bottle, split with co-workers. Poured a clear, yellow-copper color with a large sized white head. Aroma is light spice notes, light malts, some earthy/citrus hops. Flavor was light, citrus notes with plenty of earth, light spices. Flavor had some light chile notes, but itís pretty.... bland. Not a lot of roast in this one. Itís not bad, but thereís not a lot here - was hoping for more cedar and more pepper note (it didnít even have to be hot!). Inoffensive, but whatever.
