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.

Medium sweet flavor with light pine, salt, toasty sugars, grass. Medium to full in body with fine to average carbonation. Good balance in the finish, with resinous bitterness, , light wood, salt, sorachi, faint grass, pale malts, mild citrus. Very good, beautifully well-rounded stuff.

brokensail (10916) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 23, 2011
A: The pour is orange in color with a dense and creamy white head. S: Smells quite sugary and oak forward. I get a lot of brown sugar, vanilla, and fruit notes. Seems to be some peach and orange aroma in there. Maybe a bit of oxidation as well. T: The amount of oak flavor in this beer is surprising. A lot of tannins and vanilla to go with the sugary notes I get. Brown sugar, caramel, and oranges, maybe some of the peaches, too. A pretty mild level of citric hops. M: The body and the carbonation are both medium. D: This was interesting. I didn’t dislike it as a beer (thought it was pretty decent), but as an IPA, it’s not what I would be interested in having.

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.
