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.

A - Pours a hazy amber-orange, beautiful lacing.

S - Orange, grapefruit, cedar. It all adds up to an aroma near to sinsemilla.

T - Wow... sinsemilla again, in a good way. This is a very complex beer.

M - Refreshing. Makes you look forward to the next sip.

D - I loved this beer. It rivals the best IPA's I've ever had, bar none.

buckle up buttercup! .. . god, aroma is amazing, a well baked pinecone and cedar (fresh humidor) .. . pours a kickass causing dark rich gold tan with a fantastic silly fun cream head, lacing is cute as a button.. . abv is so well hidden and the subtle refined whiffs of cedar to sap are just wonderful, and super tasty! .. . aroma is just to awesome and the flavours, light peppery spice from the cedar, so intriguing and unique.. joey, you sir have started something that will/should take off like california wildfires.. . this is the highlight of all the beers i tried/picked up while in Orlando! .. . does it get better than this?

Poured in a Pint Glass

A: Goldish amber color with about a quarter of an inch of light brown head, great looking IPA

S: The smell is like walking into a Humidor it is unreal Cigar City Brewing is just on the money

T: It taste like a Humidor,the spanish cedar really comes out with every sip, it is by far the most interesting IPA that I have ever had

M: the flavor makes the mouthfeel great and it has good carbonation

D: I could drink this all day its a good Session beer even with the higher ABV. everything CCB touches turns to gold

You have to try this Humidor series from Cigar City Brewing its like nothing you have ever had A+
