Had this one several times, just getting around to review. Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB tasting room.
A: Clear amber to copper in color. Forms a one finger white head. Some visible carbonation here.
S: Woody, cedar, grapefruit and tropical fruit hops.
T: Really good. The cedar compliments the IPA character wonderfully. There is citrus (grapefruit, lemon, orange), and sweet malt flavor underneath. No alcohol presence to speak of. Finish is dry, and the dryness of the cedar fights with the hop bitterness in the hang.
M: Nice, not overly heavy mouthfeel. There is noticeably less carbonation in this pour than others I've had.
O: I can understand why some may not prefer this beer. The cedar flavor certainly comes on strong. But, I absolutely love it and the cedar flavor works SO well with the IPA style. If you haven't had the opportunity to try this yet, I would suggest you seek it out.
Serving type: on-tap
