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.

Bottle. Hazy golden hue, white foam, beady lace. Aroma shows plenty of oak amidst the hops. Citric fruits in the back. Oranges jump out through the hops, sticking to the back of my throat after each sip. Right amount of oak. Tasty.

tectactoe (1524) - Michigan, USA - DEC 11, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2014 Bottle: copper penny color with a hazy, brown-ish center. Eggshell-beige head lasts for a while & leaves some nice lacing in its wake. Aroma is largely oak; woody, wet, dense, with little vanillin & heavy tannin. The heavy oak gives off a whiskey-ish vibe, too, quite abrasive on the nose. Very muted citric hop aromas (orange, pineapple) are smothered underneath. Taste contains notes of white oak, whiskey, vanilla, wet cardboard, & faint peppery spice. Again, very mild mango & orange hop character with essentially no bitterness left. Abrasive woody, oak-y, & somewhat boozy finish. Very interesting beer, but that oak just washes everything else out. Not really a fan of this one, sadly.

coldbrewky (1419) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle via UDBeernut. Make the trains stop following me! Pours a delightful full amber with a moderate head that diminished quickly. Left behind lacing is varied from light sand to medium droopy fingers. Some trub and random floaties at bottom of glass. Light nose of oak and malt. Rounded sweet body is tinged with mellow oak. some vanilla but just a skoash. End tinge of bitterness. Yum.... first of the day. This will sustainme thru the cement project today.
