Bottle thanks to robinsmv, poured into a pint glass.
Pour: Hazy amber with three fingers of off white, nearly tan head. Definitely some floaties. Okay lacing. Head hangs around.
Smell: Slight citrus tartness, LOTS of cedar. Some grapefruit in there, but a very woody aspect prevails.
Taste: Very woody cedar up front, followed by some pine and grapefruit. Malt has a slight caramel aspect. Finishes with more cedar spiciness.
Mouthfeel: Nice and dry from the cedar, moderate carbonation. Bitterness stops it from being very drinkable, despite the cedar aging, so this one takes a little while to get through
Overall: Very interesting, and definitely better than white oak.
Serving type: bottle

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.
