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.

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.

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.

WVHouseofBeer (1038) - West Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2011
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.

This beer pours an amber body with a bit of a honey hue along the sides of the glass. The beer also leaves a tremondous white head It smells of pine and sap with a very intense hop bite. The taste is of very woody with a lingering hop taste left in your mouth. This beer is excellent! Easy to drink, alcohol is moderately hidden but it is hard not to keep coming back to this one. Try this beer!

Thanks again to OmegaX for this one. Pours a very light orange, which is hazy with a creamy head and nice lacing. Smelled strongly of hops, pine, and grapefruit with a lingering caramel sweetness. The flavor was thick of hops, sweet citrus and a light bitter finish. Woody, tangy earthy tones surrounded the palate in this beer. The white oak gave this one a new kind of spiciness that almost provided an entirely different flavor.

Growler fill. Nice amber/grapefruit colored body with a big, frothy head and nice lacing. Notes of pine, tangerine, grapefruit, driftwood, herbs, tropical fruits, and some blue cheese in the nose. Taste was extremely close to the smell. Less pungent blue cheese/barnyard flavors and more citrus and hop. Malts come through quite nicely too, especially as the beer warms up. Excellent.

Sample at the tap room. This brew pours a hazy orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of oak, grapefruit and malt. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, wood, vanilla and malt. The finish is fruity with a nice oaky citrus aftertaste. Good beer all around.
