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.

Bottle at Edgarís house. Thanks!! Pours a very hazy amber with medium white head. Snifter. Aroma of pine, oak, citrus and heavy malts. The taste is amazing with heavy oak, rich meaty malts, smoke and bitter hops. One of my favs.

Tap. Pours clear golden with hazelnut head. Aroma is complex. Earthy spice hops, fruitiness, grapes, white wine oak and vanilla. Taste is more juicy, apples, red apples, some old hops, vanilla, peach mango, Dense en over-ripe tropical fruits and mango. White grapes and finish with oak, white whine, most mouthfeel and dry oaky lingering bitternes together with herbal hops. Very interesting!

12 oz can shared by Spencer. The pour is a deep dark orange with a decent white head and a couple spots of light lace. The aroma is interesting. The bright juicy hops from the base beer are definitely overshadowed. The hops are there, but the biggest contributor is the oak. There is so much wood in the scent, it's nearly off-putting. It's just a fresh, green woodiness that's in there, and it takes away from the greatness that is Jai Alai. The flavor is surprisingly citrusy and juicy. The oak takes a back seat in the flavors. The juiciness is just awesome. Light oak and big hops. I'm a fan of the taste more than the regular. The mouth feel is light and good with a nice carbonation and a lingeringly bitter, slightly woods aftertaste. It's pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours slightly hazy golden with a nice eggshell head. Aroma stands out with woody and fresh hoppy notes. Woody hops dominate the flavor while allowing malt and sweet citrus to share the stage. Mouthfeel is average in the fizz and body departments. Oak oak oak IPA!

Thumbs up to gregwisonstl for sharing this nice IPA with me. Pours clear gold with a beige head. The aroma has smooth clean oak, caramel, fruity hops, grapes and very woody. It has a medium body with a frothy body. The flavor starts with dry oak, crusty bread, woody/earthy hops and grapefruit. The finish is mouth drying. Nice.

12oz can pours clear red amber with a finger of foamy head. Nose is fruity malt, some light oak, piney grapefruit, toast. Taste is medium bodied, malt forward, oak is prominent but balanced, nice accent of toast spice and dry wood, some stickt caramel pine and citrus. Finishes mildly sweet, malty toast, light piney grapefruit, caramel, orange, vanilla. Nice, a step up from regular Jai Alai for sure.

Have had canned and on tap. No detailed notes - just noticed I hadnít entered this. For me, the oak is too overwhelming in this one.
