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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750ml bottle poured into DFH signature glass. I think this was released July 2011, but I can't tell from the bottle print (missing a little)

A: Pours a very clear orange color. Fluffy bright white big bubbled head. Good carbonation. Some sticky lacing.

S: Definitely get some cedar, and some fruity notes, and some breadiness. Smells really nice actually. Lots of fruit.

T: Ok, thought it was UNFRESH but it's actually fine. You don't get the hop bitterness on the tip of the tongue I was expecting. You get a little mild one. Then the malt bill and cedar hit you. Really nice woodiness. And the close is crisp and somewhat clean.

M: Medium bodied

O: B+ to A- because I wonder what freshness would do for this or if better with age and the wood.
