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?

A: I love the hazy unfiltered appearance, but to some i understand it can be off putting.
S: Smell is perfect. the amazing smell that accompanies a fresh Jai Alai but with the complexity of the unique cedar infusion.
T: Just great. this is a beer i get something different out of every time i drink one. its like great record, always something to discover in this complex beauty.
O: One of my favorite CCB beers. Key is dont wait on this one. hops seem to fade fast. the complexity and uniqueness of this beer is one in a million.

This beer is amazing.
A - Nice, foamy head with a light amber color. Impressive.
S - Cedar, Pepper, subtle smoke and tobacco.
T - Wow. Lots of flavors as described in the nose. Mostly the Spanish Cedar and Pepper are predominant, with a nice balance of hops and a slight bitterness as expected by the Jai Lai IPA. The palate is well balanced and the finish has me craving more. I'm not sure if this could be any better.
M - Medium bodied, nothing too over-bearing. I'm not sure if this could be anymore well balanced.
D - Give me another bomber please.
I think any experienced beer aficionado will appreciate and understand the magnitude of how wonderful this beer is. The Spanish Cedar really provides personality that easily conquers any other wood dominant beer that I've ever had. Easily one of my top ten favorite beers. Exceptional job, Cigar City. As usual.

Poured into a Sierra Nevada pint glass. No freshness date on the label or bottle but the sticker put on by the liquor store says 12/22/2011.
A- Pours a dark amber color with a one and a half finger head that retains like a champ before finally residing at a 1/4 inch head with nice lacing and spots of foam on the surface indicating healthy yeast.
S- Oh God. Smells like literally stepping into a humidor. Wood-laced tobacco aroma that blends beautifully with fresh, peppery hops.
T- It's like taking a bite out of a cigar box which I view as a good thing. Massive rushes of black pepper and cedar which suit the particular types of hops used to perfection.
M- Prickly and a bit dry but it doesn't bring the drinkability down at all. High carbonation also helps round out the flavor profile to its excellent standing.
O- It just doesn't get much better than this. Even my girlfriend, who almost never likes IPAs, enjoys the hell out of this. This was the first Cigar City brew I ever had and it was love at first sip.

A - Awesome white fluffy head. Perfect looking head. Great lacing. Brew is cloudy orange with lots of yellow and some reds too.
S - Lots of huge cedar notes. Some nice brown sugar, citurs, and orange. Pepper and spice galore. Yum.
T - Whoa! Very unique! Great huge unique wood flavor... Silky and smooth. Citrus is very mild, yet aggressive and forward.
M - Perfect. Bitterness is perfect for an IPA. Carbonation is also done well. Very nice body, thick for an IPA.
O - Great brew. Very unique. CCB really showed me something with this fine brew. I would love to try more of their specialties, keep em coming Matt, you badass. Thanks for sharing, don't worry I also shared... Cheers.

Served at cellar temp and poured from a bomber into a SA perfect pint glass. Pours rich and clear orange, then cloudy from the yeast sediment, which to me enhances the flavor. Thick 2 finger white head.
Wow - strong grapefruit peel aroma. Hint of cigar box from the cedar. Spicy woody hops on tongue. Earthy flavors - cedar nuances on tongue - really nice touch. Pleasantly bitter on back and sides of tongue. Great malt/hop balance.
Really complex - love this beer. An IPA in a league of its own. True this brew whenever you can.
