hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2011 Draft… CCB Fruit in the Room 2010... This beer rocks!… pours orange with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Like the white oak treatment, the aroma is heavy with freshly cut oak and spruce, but this version is more fruity than the white oak, which is pretty fruity in its own right - mango, papaya, pineapple and nectarine. Medium to full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor offers toffee, earthy and citrusy hop bitterness and tropical fruits. Finishes spicy, fruity and mildly bitter. The addition of tropical fruit takes nothing away from the greatness of White Oak. I have no idea what tropical fruits this beer is aged with, but they work well. Wayne’s gonna end up turning me into an IPA guy if I’m not careful. World class brew!

hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Thanks Josh for sharing this growler. Poured an amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of woodiness, toasty, floral, earthy, and tropical fruitiness. Tastes of the same fruitiness, caramel, vanilla, wood, and coconut.

Ibrew2or3 (6905) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 28, 2010
On tap at Fruit in the Room at Cigar City Brewing. Pours murky copper with gold edges and tan head. The aroma is softer and milder than the bottle version of White Oak with hints of sweet tropical fruit wafting upward amid modest notes of spicy oak, citrus hops and a sense of pine hops. The taste is similar where the spicy oak is less forward than in the White Oak version interlaced with thin ribbons of citrus hops and sweet tropical notes. It ends both sweet with tropical-citrus and spicy with oak creating a pleasing palate and balance.

sebletitje (6700) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2012
Entering old rates. Draft @ CCB Fruit in the Room. Profile type de la Jai Alai, l’ajout de copeaux de chêne redonne un léger profile épicé boisé qui s’entremêle à une bière présentant déjà pas mal de bons points au niveau du houblonné et fruité. Le tout est très frais, et traître vu de la facilité à la boire.

j12601 (6603) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 18, 2010
On tap at the Blind Tiger during their Cigar City event. Pours a very lightly hazed orange with a medium sized white head. Juniper, resinous, musky and dank smelling. Big candied hop flavors, sweet malt. Long grapefruit on the finish.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Draft. Pours a hazy golden body with a bubbly head. Nice hoppy tones, citrus and grass y notes. Light pineapple sweetness really compliments the spicy wood tones quite well. Grapefruit and a fresh wooden undertone. Grass bitterness and a hint of apricots to finish. Great stuff.

egajdzis (5336) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Lightly hazy dark golden with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, light pine, citrus, toast, and tropical fruits. Taste of citrus, light toffee, oak, citrus, tropical fruits, and a grapefruit finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. Pours a hazed light amber with a nice fluffy white head. Aorma is fruity, tropical notes, with some white oak, but the juiciness definitely detracts from the oak, which is a good thing- not as much vanilla oak, or butter, just more of a smooth woodiness which compliments the tropical fruit juices pretty well surprisingly. Flavor is light vanlill, toasted oak, wood, amarillo hops, mango, guava, passionfruit and even pineapple, some earth, fruit loops cereal, grain, light dms, some earth in the finish, but smooth and medium bitterness in the end. Good.

TomDecapolis (4477) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Growler pours a lightl hazy golden amber with a medium creamy off white lacing head. Aroma of coconut, passion fruit, oak, citrusy and piney hips. Flavor of coconut, passion fruit, other tropical fruits, mixed citrusy hops, oak and remnants of the IPA still peaking through.
