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.

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!

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2011
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.

Dogbrick (12365) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2011
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.

Bottle courtesy of James. The white oak adds a nice white tea/peach flavor to the already legendary brew.

glennmastrange (2765) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Bottle. Moderate aromas of cereal and roasted for the malt, perfume and spruce for the hops, barnyard and musty for the yeast, with hint of wood, mace and unripe pear. Head is massive, frothy turning rocky, off-white/ light beige with excellent sticky lacing and is fully lasting. Color is murky light amber/orange. Flavor starts faintly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and a lengthy, moderate to heavy bitter ending. Palate is medium, oily with a lively carbonation and a lightly alcoholic and dry finish. Bold, beautiful and balanced aromas from this superb beer. I couldve gone for a bit more sweetness, but this is a near perfect IPA for me. It seems the white oak added some harshness to it rather than mellowing it.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2011
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours an almost clear deep golden with a creamy off-white head leaving laces. Intense and exotic hop aroma of Sorachi Ace. Medium body, very fruity, plenty of coconut and other exotic fruits. Im a little confused here since I dont remember the original Jai Alai as having Sorachi Ace. Or is it just the white oak giving this feel? Dry and hoppy finish. Delicious. 220611

FRESH 32oz growler courtesy of smith4498. thanks, jason! awesome beer for my 100th IPA rating. pours a hazy, orange-gold with a touch of pink, actually looks like ruby red grapefruit juice, with a thin, creamy, white head leavy whisps of lace on my CCB snifter. aroma is outstanding with fresh, juicy oranges, tangerine, pink grapefruit, and pine esters backed by a lovely sweetness in the form of fresh cut oak, vanilla, and wild flowers. flavor is delicious as well with smooth, sweet vanilla, oak, and cake batter layered atop tangerines, light tropical fruits, and pink grapefruit with a touch of bitter pine esters on the back end. palate is medium bodied with perfect carbonation and a dry, fruity, and slightly sweet finish. overall, a wonderful oak-aged IPA.
