Cigar City Brewing Co.
3924 West Spruce St. Suite A.
Wow, cedar totally dominates! There are some hints of spices, almost like a saison.
Pure copper hued. This beer is bottle conditioned, so it pours a massive head. Highly carbonated.
The first thing tasted is cedar. Heavy, heavy cedar! The hops briefly show themselves before the cedar regains dominance.
Light to medium body, pretty darn dry.
Overall Impression: (8/10)
I liked the uniqueness of this beer, but the cedar flavor way over-powered everything else. No balance of flavors. Totally masks the underlying IPA.
