A: extreme likeness to apple cider in consistency and clarity, very thin foam head coats surface.
S: unlike any IPA i've ever smelled, hops peek out from a barleywine and cedar backbone.
T: an exceptional blast of quality hops that are supported by a flavorful cast of dark fruits (plums, grapes, figs) and a dry wood aftertaste.
MF/D: tickles the tongue with cool bubble, leaves a warm dry finish... easily enjoyable alone but more fun with friends. certainly dont mind the cedar aging. the subdued hops are a fresh, but pleasant, change of pace from west coast IPA's.
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
