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.

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.

daknole (10848) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Gold pour. Tons of tropical fruit, raw wood, citrus hops, honey and more. Flavor has a ton of fresh cut wood, citrus, pineapple and a really interesting finish: a dill note. Great beer!

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2010
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Hazy orange ale with a huge, frothy, white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma blows me away – freshly cut firewood, tropical fruit medley, spruce and nectarine. I didn’t think I could like the aroma of any other treatment of Jai Alai more than that of the Humidor IPA but now I do. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Bittersweet, fruity, spicy flavor and finish. World class beer!

Bottle @ home, courtesy of markwise. Thanks Mark! Hazy, amber orange appearance with an off white head. Woody, evergreen, piney hoppy, grapefruit, orange citrusy nose. Tangy, pineapple, orange, grapefruity, oak, pine, cedar, hoppy sweet pale malty flavor. Awesome, flavorful, easy drinking brew.

kermis (9995) - Zeeman, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2013
Draft at Falling Rock, Denver. Pours cloudy orange with an off white head. Aroma of oak, floral aspects, vanilla and peach. Flavour is moderate sweet and over moderate bitter. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Amazing brew.

deyholla (9993) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2010
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.

GT (9982) - 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 I’m not even thinking IPA while trying this. It’s yummy but a bit too sweet and fruity.

wtf? bought at the same time as the regular jai, but waaaay fresher, more aromatic, more carbonated, and tastier. tropical fruit abounds in the nose and taste, with some hop bitterness and malt balance. cool, unique ipa!!

Can thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy white head. The aroma is strong white oak, floral hop, and citrus. Medium mouthfeel with strong dry hop, oak, and light bitter finish. Good.
