COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an American White Oak-aged version of Jai Alai India Pale Ale. The white oak adds smoothing notes of vanilla and slight hints of dill to the aroma and flavor profile. The finish is elegantly dry due to the light tannin notes from oak aging and though still loaded with hop flavor, hop bitterness is more restrained.

Tap at Copenhagen Beer Festival in Boston (9-24-2016) showing well filtered caramel brown with a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows light malts and hints of lemon. The palate is medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Flavors of light pineapple and pine resin with a light zesty bitterness. Simple but not bad.

Can from my father (think he bought it at the brewery). Fruity and hoppy smell with oak and vanilla. Similar taste with some dill, which is surprising. The oak gives some clear and interesting flavours. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice!

Drucken på fat på Brewskival 2016. Smak och doft av trä - typ cederträ, vanilj, humle, citrus. Frisk och fruktig, mild, torr, fin beska med smak av citrus. Gott!

Vignale (3323) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2016
Drucken på fat på Brewskival 2016. Kryddiga träiga smaker typ ceder eller sandelträ, te, vattenbaserat trälim och vanilj/vanillin men bakom det en bra torr citrusdriven IPA som getts en dimension till av lagringen och även om den inte blivit bättre blivit intressant, komplex och riktigt bra.

Can poured into snifter. Floral and citrus hop aroma. Faint oak. Tastes more of the same but with added vanilla and wood, like opening an oak cabinet and tasting how it would smell. Pleasant. Nicely balanced wood and hops. Body is medium light with medium carbonation. I really like this beer and look forward to its release every year. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
