Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a thin lazing white head. The aroma is very spicy - ginger and cardemomme, combined with notes of cedar wood and fruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of cedar wood, spices - ginger and cardemomme, oranges, on a malty back ground, leading to a dry spicy finish where the cedar wood note lingers. madsberg (11770) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2009

Bottle while on vacation in Orlando. Pours amber gold with decent head. Plenty of lacing. Plenty of floral and citrusy hops. Grapefruit and pine. This was countered by the malty sweetness, and perhaps a bit of fruit. I love to get the bottom of the bottle and get some of that yeast. While it didn’t add much in the way of flavor, as would be the case in a Belgian offering, the yeast here was great at mellowing out the hops. As it warmed it turned into smooth but complex beer. The alcohol was very well hidden. Extremely smooth IPA.

Bottle from daknole. Thanks! Good bit of cedar on the nose. Very woody. Iced tea, lime, floral notes. Citrus underneath and some toast. Murky orange amber pour creamy beige head. Spicy cedar, toasty, lime, iced tea. Lots of tasty cedar. Very noticeable regular jai alai flavors with cedar added. Drinks nicely, dry cedar aged finish. Nice, interesting. scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2010 thanks riversideAK! Spectacular herbal cedar nose, im in heaven. I love cedar and this works aromatically on many levels. Dark hazy gold. Brew with more cedar people! Juicy apricot, abruptly dry. Cedar everywhere. Surrounding and supportive. I love this concept and im excited at their execution with this series. Tasted again 013010 loving the cedar aroma and on the palate. wood is a beautiful compliment to the hops. bvc (1242) - Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2009
750ml from riversideak...you da man! Resiny pineapple nose with some lemon/lime rind. But the most predominant smell is cigar box. Malty and sticky up front then moves right into tobacco cedar and finishing up with bittering hops. Such a fantastic use of a under utilized wood. Great stuff and I am looking forward to trying more of the Humidor series. TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Bottle from thecheeseman. Thanks Daniel! Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Strong woody nose with the hops taking a backseat but definitely present. Some grapefruit and pine bitterness from the hops but also a lot of wood. A lot. Kind of a peppery finish.
