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.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2013 I thought the Jai Alai IPA was good, then I tasted this one, on tap, at Cigar City. WOW. I wish I could drink more. Pours a deep golden color, and the aroma is that citrus smell with oak. Very nice. There are some hops, but they are balanced out. This is a phenomenal beer!

This beer is so good. I would drink this everyday if I could. I drink it at the taproom and from the bottle. I would growler this if I could. Citrusy smell unbelievable taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle as an extra. Pours a dark gold with off white head. Taste like orange jam flavor, slight wood flavor adds great taste.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2013 Tap at CCB. Aroma is oak, citrus and hops. Pour golden close to pale with a nice head and lace. Taste oak right away. Hoppy, vanilla notes, raisin, and pine. I love the Jai Alai. And this is a good compliment to it.

Hazy orange body, medium white head, soapy lacing. Nose is almost all oak, flavor shows a nice orange creamsicle character with the oaky vanilla and citric hops. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, assertive bitterness

Bottle at Olympen. Cloudy orangey amber colour. Nice mix of oaky vanilla and citrussy hops. In the mouth vanilla takes over, but good refreshing hop bitterness lingers. Very good.

Bottle at Olympen Friluft, june 29th 2013. It has a hazy orange body, good white head. Good looking, nothing out of the ordinary. Then we move on to the aroma. Grapefruit, coconut, mango, pomegranate, with a non-sweet vanilla touch, near perfectly balancing out the fruity stuff. Taste follows with no dissappointment, coconut&grapefruit, blood orange, citrus, soft wood and more of that delicious vanilla. It’s really not that bitter or sweet at first, but deep down in the complexity I find layers of both bitterness and sweetness. The soft cocos, orange and vanilla aftertaste suits the beer very nice. Wow, I’m amazed. The beer scene is so full of pretty damn good ipas that it really takes a lot for an ipa to blow me away. But this one did it, this has to be the best you can get out of an ipa. If you’re gonna drink ONE ipa this summer, look no further. This is the one. I’m sold.

Bottle, many thanks to Greg. It pours hazy orange-amber with a medium beige head. The nose is pine, earth, resin, light peppery, white grape, blood orange and raisin. The taste is pine, earth, light toast, white grape, green apple, orange peel, earth, light dough and spice with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Flavoursome and well-balanced. Who would have thought a barrel-aged ipa would taste so good?!

On tap at the Widmer Gasthaus. A very strange piña colada aroma. Strong, bitter peach. A fat and smooth body. An improvement of the original. Really great.

12 ounce bottle. Thanks Sean! Pours a hazy pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Taste is citrus fruits, tropical fruits, wood, malt, and a bit of vanilla. Excellent!
