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.

Can poured into snifter. Floral and citrus hop aroma. Faint oak. Tastes more of the same but with added vanilla and wood, like opening an oak cabinet and tasting how it would smell. Pleasant. Nicely balanced wood and hops. Body is medium light with medium carbonation. I really like this beer and look forward to its release every year. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Palme (4484) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2016
0.355l can from 2d2dspuma. This one pours a mildly cloudy golden looking body with a huge really fluffy and really lacing white head. Superbly fluffy actually. Looks like clouds. Smells nice with a little green apple acidity. Theres tones of hay and ripe sweet yeasty fruity. Im not sure if its meant to smell like this, but I kinda like it. Nothing special in the taste really. Its clearly not a fresh can this. Not bad at all, just a tad un-fresh. Light oily in the mouth and its soft on the carbonation. Lots of straws, unmalted malts, wood, a faint yeast acidity and its somewhat dry-wooded in the finish. Im sure this would have been a lot better fresh, bus I still kinda enjoyed this here on by the pool. 10.08.2014

Hazy orange with a white head. Very tropical like the original. The vanilla and oak notes makes it a bit more heavy and sweet. Nicely balanced though. Good

This one really isnt my IPA as I feel its going away from what I enjoy in the regular Jai alai and what I enjoy in IPA. I like the hops and the juice. This one is full of a malt balance character possibly from the vanilla that kind of overwhelms my pallet. Not what I expected and not what I enjoy. Try and see if its up your alley.

12oz can. 5/23/16 can date. Appearance: Deep golden, touch of orange, cloudy, with a thick off white foam head that lingers with nice lacing. Aroma: Strong tropical fruit notes of pineapple, mango, and some berry, intertwined with with a light toasted oak. Very nice. Taste: Moderate caramel malt sweetness, blended with strong hop flavors of grapefruit and orange citrus, with a touch of light toasted oak and vanilla throughout that peaks in the swallow. Bitterness is moderately strong and seems somewhat muted from the original jai alai Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation. Finish: Dry tannic finish with some tacky resin. Toasted oak comes thru retronasally. Overall: Really nice take on an already great beer, by introducing the oak for added flavor and complexity that does not overpower. Well balanced between the great hop aroma and flavor against a light but complementary toasted oak. While the bitterness seems a little muted from the original, the overall complexity of this increased

12oz can courtesy of Steve. Normal looking pour for the style. Aroma brings on the hoppiness of the original version, taste is where some of the wood notes come in and take some of the rough edges off. A bit smoother.

Can. Bright golden pour with a small beige head. Aroma is spicy, lively with citrus and florals, a bit woody. Tastes of sweet citrus hoppy bitters, woody and a spicy bit akin to rye. Finishes dry, yet soothing sweet.
