2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear copper with a thin sticky white head. Nose has a sharp white oak twang, with a sweet an juicy mango/melon tone, maybe a little pineapple rind as well. The flavor is sharp and woody with that fresh chopped white oak twang, a little pineapple rind, a mild char note, and mango. That oak tone is just a little too abrasive.

From a can in Miami. Pours clear golden brown with a thin white head and decent lacing. Tastes awesome, like sweet tropical fruits, roasted nuts and caramel, marshmallow, and dry pine and resin. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like mild tropical fruits, nutty, and light pine.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can. Pours clear amber with a creamy pillow of off-white head. Aroma is floral and grassy hops, pineapple, mango, oak, toasted malts, and light lemon zest. Flavor is dynamic with sweet tropical fruit up front that transitions to toasted and caramel malts before evolving again into floral hop goodness with a touch of pine; dry finish with some of the tropical notes lingering. Medium body and carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Description is pretty spot on. Can into glass. Fragrant citrus hop aroma and a mellowed bitterness from the oak. I think the oak was actually too pronounced.

12oz can. Pours a dark golden color with average carbonation and a creamy off-white head. Heavy citrus aroma with a subtle oak note. Not as bitter as regular Jai Alai, smooth with some vanilla in the finish. Outstanding.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from the can into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a slightly cloud amber-dark gold color with a very large foamy and creamy off-white head with very good retention, but light cling and lacing. The aroma featured strong notes of citrus, grapefruit, and lemon, with pleasant, noticeable touches of oak and vanilla, and a bit of barley. It had a subdued bitter citrus and grainy toast with a prominent sour-bitter oak character with a slightly sweet vanilla finish; a very interesting and enjoyable combination. The beer had good carbonation and life with a thick and full mouthfeel with a somewhat dry body and smooth finish. Unique and exciting beer.

Pours amber with a perfect sticky defined foam head. The aroma is a hoppy citrus, tropical fruit, with a wood character, and a vanilla scent. In tasting I noticed sweet carmel, medium tropical pineapple flavor, mild vanilla, and subtle malt taste. The finish is very pleasant and doesn?t hurt my palate. Overall I really enjoyed this brew, definitely worth trying.
