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.

Got this can from a free beer contest. It's going on 4 months old now. Really want to re-rate this one fresh. Pours a clear orange ruby red with a white foam head. Aroma is of caramel, some coconut, and big oak. Taste is sweet with a coconut aftertaste from the oak. Medium body and medium high carb. Pretty good. Can't image how good fresher.

This is a great one off from the great Jai Alai IPA!!! The white oak give this beer a different taste but well worth it. As a Jai Alai fan, this is just a good or a little bit better.

This is even better than the regular Jai Alai. The oak really brings out the hoppiness even more so. If you are not a fan of IPAs, donít bother. Itís an augmented hoppy in both aroma and taste. Dry finish with lingering floral and hop flavor.

It has a hoppy yet sweet smell from the oak barrels. It has a golden to amber color and cloudy. Minimal head. It has a bitter sweet taste. Medium body with a thick texture. Overall one of my favorite year round beers

12oz can, I love the original but the oak aging really takes this one up a notch! Fantastic beer, so complex! Too bad itís so tough to find.

Dry and a little thicker end. T - a tropical sweet ipa. Canned Pineapple, coconut, dill, oak, canned peaches. Pine, lemon zest and unsweet ruby red grapefruit. O - quite good. Tropical. 3.8

Call me crazy, but I think I get hints of coconut in this beer, both in the aroma and aftertaste. Iím not a huge coconut fan but it kind of works here. Otherwise this is a very mellowed version of Jai Alai. Itís a smooth drinker but a lot different from itís non-aged sibling.

Candy in my mouth. The addition of white oak in jai alai kicked the ipa up the extra notch I didn't even know it could reach.

12oz can Ė domed this morning, hair of the dog style. Aroma is pine, coconut, some cream pie and light stone fruit. Domed out of the can, so I did not get a chance to see the color and head, but untappd tells me that its clear burnt orange with a nice eggshell foam. Taste is up front vanilla cream pie with waves of coconut, like toasty oak and pine. Love the tropical flavors of peach and coconut. Body is medium, creamy, pillowy, with nice soft carbonation. Finish is light bitterness, stone fruit, oak, and more coconut. Didnít expect this much tropical flavor and itís very different than the first can Iíve tried. Excellent!

12 oz can (canned in January 2014). Clear, light amber color. Thin, off white head, with 1 bubble layer retention. Aromaís out of the glass: wood, oak, vanilla, still subtle. Once in the mouth, retronasal, it becomes a true oak bomb, heavy vanilla, oak, tannins, bitterhop and malty sweetness. Flavor is rather sweet, vanilla, and rather bitter. Medium bodied. Finishes somewhat dry, tannins, and eventually quite bitter. Good experiment and I really like this. Superb.
