I really liked this one, and thought it was a CCB standout at Fruit in the Room. Pours typical Jai Alai color with an off-white head. Nose is malt, caramel, slight coconut, apricot, kumquat, and all manner of citrus and tropical fruit. Flavor is similar with all kinds of fruit complimenting the flavor of the oak and the citrus quality in the IPA. Very nice. raradel (343) - Atlanti Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2011
One of the best beers I have ever had, thank you Green Room in Jacksonville Beach! This stuff is awesome, but not surprised its from Cigar City. I will try all their beers just too see if they can match this!!! jbruner (4740) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Part of the IPA day celebration at CCB. Wow, this beer was amazing! Pours a hazy golden orange on tap with frothy white head and medium lacing on the way down. Aroma of zesty oak, tropical fruit, and great hops. Taste is zesty sweet from the oak, pineapple and mango from the fruit, and a hoppy back end. A quick bitter bite followed by a wonderfully balanced sweetness from the fruit. Completely amazing; I will be dreaming about this beer for a while to come. Jmorris45 (13) - - OCT 17, 2012
Had this on tap at the brewery on #ipaday. This is one of my favorite CCB beers I have ever had. Pours amber color. Huge tropical fruit nose with lots of vanilla too. Layer upon layer of tropical fruit come thru. Pineapple, passion fruit, guava and papaya all come thru as well as the white oak. Finishes very clean.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2011 Draft… CCB Fruit in the Room 2010... This beer rocks!… pours orange with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Like the white oak treatment, the aroma is heavy with freshly cut oak and spruce, but this version is more fruity than the white oak, which is pretty fruity in its own right - mango, papaya, pineapple and nectarine. Medium to full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor offers toffee, earthy and citrusy hop bitterness and tropical fruits. Finishes spicy, fruity and mildly bitter. The addition of tropical fruit takes nothing away from the greatness of White Oak. I have no idea what tropical fruits this beer is aged with, but they work well. Wayne’s gonna end up turning me into an IPA guy if I’m not careful. World class brew! 50belair (3643) - Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2010
On tap at Fruit of the Room. This is probably my favorite version of this beer. It pour like regular jai Alai, but has way more tropical fruit aromas. The taste was similar with the great oak and Jai Alai flavors but with tropically/florally accents. Great job with this beer..... TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Growler pours a lightl hazy golden amber with a medium creamy off white lacing head. Aroma of coconut, passion fruit, oak, citrusy and piney hips. Flavor of coconut, passion fruit, other tropical fruits, mixed citrusy hops, oak and remnants of the IPA still peaking through. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Draft. Pours a hazy golden body with a bubbly head. Nice hoppy tones, citrus and grass y notes. Light pineapple sweetness really compliments the spicy wood tones quite well. Grapefruit and a fresh wooden undertone. Grass bitterness and a hint of apricots to finish. Great stuff. HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2010
Tap @ Fruit in the Room. Hazy copper body with a medium sized beige head. Big tropical fruit notes in the nose as well as citrus and pine, softer note of woody oak. Fairly full body with good carbonation and a sticky mouth feel. Flavor starts with a sweet tropical/citrus note, plenty of bitterness to balance it out though, mid way through loads of caramel some vanilla and soft oak, pine notes throughout. Finishes very smooth with moderate bitterness and some spice. For me CCB always nails it with their tropical treatments.
