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.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2011
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours an almost clear deep golden with a creamy off-white head leaving laces. Intense and exotic hop aroma of Sorachi Ace. Medium body, very fruity, plenty of coconut and other exotic fruits. I’m a little confused here since I don’t remember the original Jai Alai as having Sorachi Ace. Or is it just the white oak giving this feel? Dry and hoppy finish. Delicious. 220611

Hazy dark amber beer, nice cream coloured head. Cream and sweet orange in the nose. Softish palate. Lovely fresh orange hop with a bitter grapefruit trailing edge. Pine. Marvellously offset by creamy vanilla oak. Medium bitter aftertaste. Really nicely judged BA IPA. Cracking!
