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.

a great spin on a very solid IPA! poured a cloudy orange with a frothy head. a great aroma off the rim of the glass from a poured 12oz bottle. scents of oak (and slight cedar..?) along with some hops coming thru tempt your tounge! bitterness and oak flavors hit you up front with a nice lingering oak taste. warm going down.. not an everyday drinker but definitely a great treat for yourself! thanks burg326!!

Pours a nice orange-yellow with a thin, foamy head. The aroma is dominated by the hops. Flavor is strongly hops, with some citrus in the background. The white oak aging really adds something to this, as its a much more pronounced IPA than the regular Jai Alai. Not bad.

This beer is probably the closest to perfection that can be found. The malts balance perfectly with the hops, and has a great gentle slide of bitterness and sweetness. Wonderful beer!

Thanks to Paul for this. Pours orangish yellow with a nice of white head. Smell: pine, grapefruit, mango, caramel and notes of wood. Taste: grapefruit, mango, wood, nice pine resin and caramel malt. Medium on the mouth and a long bitter but smooth finish.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Sampled at GABF 2011. Orangish amber pour with a white head. Aroma of oak, smoke and vanilla. Light sweet malt notes dominate the dormant hop notes of pine and citrus. Flavor is strong oak, vanilla, vegetal bitterness. There are lots of pine and citrus notes, but they are seemingly paralyzed behind the heavy malt presence. This is a good beer but not something Id fantasize over. So, I guess its more the bar room hook up than the girl next door.

KyotoLefty (10197) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle. Aroma of oak, vanilla, honey malts, muted citrus hops, coconut. Orange, cloudy, with lace. Sweet oaky flavor, syrupy, with honey, unsubtle oak, coconut, vanilla, light grassy hop. Oily and smooth palate, big bitterness. Harsh. The oak just takes over everything here. Fun but not well integrated or balanced.

3.9
reggiedunlop (3718) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Pours an opaqud honey color with a medium tan head...decent lacing. Aroma has notable oak...also vanilla, sweet citrus notes...pineapple, mango. Flavor is also loaded with citrus and subtle spics...touch of vanilla and very oaky at the end. Mouthfeel is lively and a touch oily with a dry, lingering oaky finish.

2.9
kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - OCT 6, 2011
(bottle) amber with white head. Aroma dominated by oak. Flavor was smoky malt, oak, whisky. Some hops in finish, but I mostly noticed the oak.
