Thanks to sergfl for this one. 750ml poured into a Duvel tulip at fridge temp. Bottle dated June 14.
A. Nice golden orange body,with a thick two finger offwhite fluffy head. Lacing stuck all over.
S. Tons of cedar, it is the dominant smell. I get some faint piney hops along with a little peach.
T. Upfront I get the cedar, just like the nose. I think it works well with the piney hops. Not getting to much more.
M. Good creamy,smooth medium feel,with perfect carbonation. Bitter,dry finish.
Overall this is a solid beer that benifits from the cedar. It really balences it out. Well done. Makes it very interesting and differant.

12 oz can(!); canned March 2014; served in a lager glass.
A: Excellent semi-creamy head over a deep amber liquid full of suspended particles.
Very hoppy aroma of the piney/citrus persuasion. Mild bitterness for style, with some nice cedar wood aging effects.
Feel: smooth and full for style.
O: tamer, more interesting, and easier to drink than the very fine Jai Alai Ale that serves as the base.
Serving type: can

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes from 2012.
Appearance - Light copper colored. White head. Sticky looking with a ton of lace.
Smell - Tons of grapefruit hops. The cedar aroma adds to the pungency of the grapefruit. Some caramel malts.
Taste - Fresh grapefruit hops. Intense cedar. The cedar pairs very well with the grapefruit hops. Slightly sweet pale malt in the back. Bitter finish with an intense woody cedar lingering aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium carbonation. A little bit creamy.
Overall - I don't really like cedar in most beers, but this works well.
