Notes/Commercial Description:
Our flagship beer in the Humidor Series is Humidor Series India Pale Ale. We start with Jai Alai IPA as a base beer and add the cedar during secondary fermentation. The cedar provides a perfect balance with the assertive hops of Jai Alai to create an entirely new experience.

4.7/5  rDev +16%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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

3.88/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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
