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 hazy orange in color with a finger of head (great retention). smells of cedar... wooooah boy does this smell of cedar, and oh man do i fucking love the smell of cedar! as with cedar, it has an almost cinnammon spice note to it, there is a caramel aroma as well, but let's not kid around, this smells like straight up cedar. oh fuck yes, the flavor.. it's overpowered by cedar as well! lots of bittering hops work so darn well with this wood, a nice caramel malty body.. this is excellent. i feel i may be a bit biased due to the wood, but man this is fucking delicious. medium body with low carbonation.

if you are a carpenter or have ever worked construction, you will appreciate the hell out of this beer. cedar is one of the most irritable woods out there, but as well it is one of the most awesome smelling woods. this is pretty much their jai alai (one of my favorite ipa's) aged with cedar spirals (my favorite wood).. how the fuck do you expect me not to love it??!

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.
