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.

Appearance: Pours an amber orange with a big, fluffy beige head with decent retention.

Aroma: Spicy malt, fresh oak, white grapes, vanilla and faint yet noticeable hops.

Taste: Grapefruit, caramel, vanilla,oak, spicy malt. Finishes toasty and bitter.

Mouthfeel: Juicy, sticky with modest carbonation.

Overall: Possibly one of the best "oaked" IPA I’ve had to date.

Thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is the pine and citrus that I expect from Jai Alai, but it is accented with some oaked notes. The flavor is more of the same. There is a light oak flavor that compliments the pine, citrus and pineapple notes. I think the oak cuts the bitterness, which is lower than I remember from the regular Jai Alai. Very well done. Medium mouthfeel and medium mouthfeel.

Pours a soft hazy gold with one finger of creamy white head. Nose is citrusy and spicy. Hints of pink grapefruit zest and flesh with a mild oak character. Flavor is very citrusy, definitely tangarine and mandarin orange with some spruce and spice from the oak. Palate has a medium body and mild citrus rind bitterness.

Tmoney99 (10080) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2010
Bottle. Poured hazy copper color with an average to large fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus hop and woody aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitter hop flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration. This is another change of pace standout beer.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours cloudy orange with a thin off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a slightly sour caramel malt flavor with a thick bitter smoky finish. Lots of oak. An interesting brew.

dionysus (1449) - Arizona, USA - NOV 6, 2010
Bottle thanks to hellbilly. Pour is orange-amber with a white head. Aroma is amazingly fruity with notes of citrus, mango, lemongrass, fresh oak, and a touch of dill. Flavor shows the same with some honey sweetness quickly dried by the oak and complimented with some nicely balanced hop bitterness. Good stuff.

bottle through trade poured an orange amber in color with a big fluffy off white head. aroma has pines, light citrus, some tropical fruit, and oak barrel. nice full coating mouth feel and medium carbonation. flavor gets more oak, vanilla, good bitterness, citrus, pine, and a bit of sweetness in the mix. this is a big transformation from the base beer but the aromatic hops still come through.
