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 courtesy of gatorguy92. Pours hazy gold/amber with a lasting white head. Smells of pine, perfume, spicy, floral, sagey, dry vanilla. Tastes of pine, pspice, wildflowers, peppery.

Bottle. So I will state that this is not a fresh sample, I bought it with the expectation that it was in good shape...I was wrong, but Im reviewing anyway. Murky brown with basically no head. Lots of oak in the aroma, some sweetness, and oxidation. Flavor follows suit, and barleywine like flavors with oak take over as this is not fresh. Gotta say that even though Im really angry, this is a generous score from me.

Great step up from an already good beer. Poor with a great white lasting head. Very bitter clean paltry flavor. Lots of lasting dry woodiness. Great beer

Appearance: Pours an orange haze.

Growler squirreled back by Cylinda. Spice, citrus, and vanilla makes it a nice cream sickle sort of drink. Pousr clear orange with a white head. Citrus orange aroma. Pretty refreshing with a little added oomph from the oak ageing.

Ill take any opportunity to try another variant of cigar citys great IPA. This was very similar to the standard IPA and slightly smoothed by the oak. Its a mild oak finish, not a heavy one. Great hop profile and and wonderfully refreshing finish. Slightly smoother than the standard, but really not that different.

Aroma: massive oaky nose, once you get past that, lots of hops, nice and floral/citrusy. Pours a slightly hazy golden with thick white head, good retention and lacing. Very oaky flavor, not overpowering but does mask the other flavors a bit. Plenty of hops, citrus and tropical fruits, some pine, alcohol is well hidden, nice blend of flavors, unique for sure. Medium body, medium carbonation, smooth on the palate.

Crushed with my boys at OB. Hell yeah. Now that is one fantastic IPA. We found this beer to be the highlight of the variety 6 pack I brought back from Florida. Nose and flavor are spot on. Great hop presence, with the oak only broadening the profile. Top notch.

yespr (42113) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2011
12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild vanilla and oak, toasted caramelish. Sweet, fruity and slight bitter. Ends lingering sweet and fruity hoppy. Rather dry and bitter far finish.

Aroma of bitter citrusy hops with a very small hint of the Oak. Pours a beautiful light orange color with a frothy white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Flavors consist of citrus, grass and a tinge of Oak. Medium-bodied with an unexpected sweet fruity finish. This is a great beer but between this and the Cedar Aged Jai Alai I think I prefer the latter.
