Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB tasting room. Poured into a pint glass.
A: Deep red brown in color with some haze. One finger's worth of just-off-white head and moderate visible carbonation.
S: Citrus punch (grapefruit & orange), tropical fruit (pineapple, mango), woody cedar, a smidge of pine, and some roasted malt in the background. Flat out smells amazing.
T: Follows the nose, and it's a good thing. Fruitiness stays forward with the cedar wood, and a hint of spiciness, and just enough malt to try to balance it out.
M: Sticky, resiny mouthfeel, smooth texture, medium body. Overall a little sweet. Alcohol well-hidden.
O: I am blown away by this beer. This is insanely good & fresh. My only (small) quibble is that if anything, it tastes like someone poured a little fruit juice into my beer. But it's still very, very good. Highly recommended.

Wow, I just had this with a brandy aged Hannahpu and Perennial Barrel Aged Sump, yet this is the beer I was most impressed by. I felt compelled to write a review to tell the world how great this beer is.
I had this on tap at a very crowded event, the second glass was as good if not better than the first.
A- A beautiful dark amber color. A head like aged parchment, it looks oh so drinkable.
S- If I could give a medal on smell alone, this would be the beer. Cut a grapefruit open, sprinkle on some sugar and take a sniff and you would only get half the intensity of the same smell of this beer. Truly amazing, I consider myself jaded, but this was bringing a delighted smile to my face as well as those even more jaded than myself.
T- hmmm, citrus and more citrus. Sweet and enjoyable, there is nothing else quite like it. T
M-Pretty much perfect.
O- Wow, this is IMHO the best thing CCB has made. Their famed Hannahpu is excellent and perfect within the confines of its own style, but this is almost a new style in and of itself.
CCB, please make this a regular brew in your lineup. I am in awe of this beer.
