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.

Pours a hazy orange with a one finger head. Not quite opaque and I do not see any chunks of yeast. I smell cedar first and foremost followed by grapefruit and mango. Incredible aroma. The taste is perfect. The cedar hits first and then morphs into a nice grapefruit and mango combo that leaves a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is like silk. The carbonation is light to medium. Drinkability is OK, but I can finish the bottle myself due to how good this beer really is. Overall, the most complex IPA I have had to date. This is definitely not for everyone, but it is definitely a must try for any IPA fan. Very unique and finally an extreme beer that Sam hasn't thought of. A must try!
