Can to glass. Pours a deep golden light orange color with an off white head. Has a very unique aroma, with a touch of fruity hops layered with vanilla, oak. Flavor has much of the same. Not at all an IPA. Very unique and very delicious! Thanks BJ!

Pours a light golden orange with big fizzy head. Aromas of resin hop, wood, and a little booze. Big hop and oaky flavor...the oak lends a kind of boozy quality to the beer.

12 oz can shared by Spencer. The pour is a deep dark orange with a decent white head and a couple spots of light lace. The aroma is interesting. The bright juicy hops from the base beer are definitely overshadowed. The hops are there, but the biggest contributor is the oak. There is so much wood in the scent, it's nearly off-putting. It's just a fresh, green woodiness that's in there, and it takes away from the greatness that is Jai Alai. The flavor is surprisingly citrusy and juicy. The oak takes a back seat in the flavors. The juiciness is just awesome. Light oak and big hops. I'm a fan of the taste more than the regular. The mouth feel is light and good with a nice carbonation and a lingeringly bitter, slightly woods aftertaste. It's pretty good.

Pours slightly hazy golden with a nice eggshell head. Aroma stands out with woody and fresh hoppy notes. Woody hops dominate the flavor while allowing malt and sweet citrus to share the stage. Mouthfeel is average in the fizz and body departments. Oak oak oak IPA!
