Beer # 26 Cedar Aged Jai Alai – Humidor Series

Cigar City Jai Alai Cedar Aged IPA Humidor Series

 

Name: Cedar Aged Jai Alai – Humidor Series

Style: India Pale Ale

Brewery: Cigar City Brewing website

Country: USA

Region: Tampa, Florida

ABV: 7.50%

How served: 750ml bottle poured into an Augustijn Grand Cru Tulip.

My Overall Opinion: Very Good. 

I paired this beer with: A gyro platter and a Greek salad, yummy!!!

Tasted on: Thursday November 19, 2009

Note:  I still enjoy the “regular” Jai Alai over the Humidor Series version; I also feel that it has improved somewhat with age as the “cedar cigar box” taste has mellowed a bit.  This beer is well worth hunting out, if you see a bottle, buy it!!!

 “The Humidor Series is a rotating offering of Cigar City Brewing beer aged on cedar. We change the offering for every release so that more of our beers get to luxuriate in cigar box cedar. Cedar has a more subtle effect on beer than more traditional woods like oak. But, we think that once you taste it you’ll agree that cedar deserves a place alongside oak in the brewer’s wood-aging toolbox. Humidor series beers will vary due to style, but are always a good option for pairing with a fine cigar. “
