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.

Dogbrick (10043) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2011
Sample at the tap room. This brew pours a hazy orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of oak, grapefruit and malt. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, wood, vanilla and malt. The finish is fruity with a nice oaky citrus aftertaste. Good beer all around.

Scopey (10041) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2013
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?!

Thanks Shawn. Spicey IPA. Medium golden coloured body with enormous head that leaves a half inch of white head. The aroma is unuual as it has the cooked oak, interesting. Medium plus mouthfeel. Decent drinkability, but I could not drink a second bottle of this too soon. bee-aye 5K.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 21, 2010
355mL courtesy of Travlr. Poured a hazy light amber with a towering, ultra-rocky, yellow, creme head. Massive retention and lace. Aroma is candy corn, melon, cantaloupe Taste is bitter melon rind, sweet residual sugars, some odd sweet melon character. Soft carbonation. Really no hop character so Iím not even thinking IPA while trying this. Itís yummy but a bit too sweet and fruity.

12oz bottle, and another 12oz bottle shared. Very interesting fruity / floral hoppy nose. Orange creme flavor. Darker red / orange hazy color. Bigger particles suspended within the body. Good thin creme-colored head, leaves great lace. Big, dark chunky particles in the body. Smooth, sort of creamy texture. Light carbonation. Medium / bigger body, good sweet hoppy flavor. Light bitter. Nice light zest. Iím not sure if itís the white oak, but this is a very interesting and unique flavor for an IPA.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2011
Tap at Ginger Man. Very muddy hazy pour. The nose is quite laden with vanilla laden with back notes of mango and passionfruit. Rich palate with a fairly thick body as well. Itís lightly sweet but not all that hoppy. Sweet fruity hop aromatics but the bitterness is so subdued and unresinous that it almost comes across as a fruit beer. However - as it warms up this beer really changes. The hoppiness starts to pick up but it comes across a little bit catty. I canít say Iím a huge fan of this one - but itís definitely one of a kind.

Draft - Light oak, coconut and tropical fruit. Clear gold with a thin beige head. Raw oak, tropical fruit and a woody dry finish. Really nice if you like oak.

Bottle shared by Shane, thanks! Poured a clear orange gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was a combination of pine, white oak and sweet grains. Flavor was more sweet from the grains with slight pine and juniper notes and a bit of oak backing.
