12 oz. bottle, sent by Glouglouburp (thanks Dany), split with Matts_Property, pours a beautiful opaque dark reddish orange with minimal white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, resinous hops (despite the oak aging), some birch tree, maybe some spicy / woody notes but I wouldn’t have guessed this was [white] oak aged. Flavour is more spicy and woody than the nose suggests, with less of the hoppy character coming through - some tropical fruits, birch or cedar tree, maybe a little grapefruit, with a slightly spicy, dry tropical fruity finish. The oak aging is subtle on this one, which is good in my books, as I’m usually unimpressed by oak aging IPAs. Very enjoyable take on the regular, excellent Jai Alai. chrisv10 (18211) - DENMARK - JUN 5, 2017

Bottle thanks to Drowland. Pours cloudy apricot. Nose of citrus, oak, spicy hops and caramel malts. Taste has lots of spicy hops, some oak and light citrus, caramel malts and a mild pine finish. brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 23, 2011
A: The pour is orange in color with a dense and creamy white head.
S: Smells quite sugary and oak forward. I get a lot of brown sugar, vanilla, and fruit notes. Seems to be some peach and orange aroma in there. Maybe a bit of oxidation as well.
T: The amount of oak flavor in this beer is surprising. A lot of tannins and vanilla to go with the sugary notes I get. Brown sugar, caramel, and oranges, maybe some of the peaches, too. A pretty mild level of citric hops.
M: The body and the carbonation are both medium.
D: This was interesting. I didn’t dislike it as a beer (thought it was pretty decent), but as an IPA, it’s not what I would be interested in having. Benzai (16520) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2012
