Delicious IPA, hitting all the citric-pine hop notes of original Jai Alai but rounding them out into smooth harmony. Orange and mango lurk on the periphery, while a mildly sweet middle adds creamy caramel and biscuit notes. Vanilla underlines everything, and the finish grows woodsy and herbal, with (like the description says) dill popping up as well. Perfect pour, a gorgeous gold with a permanent top of thick white foam and lacing for days. Oak-tinged herbal nose with hints of citrus. Smooth texture, creamy and luscious. Killer beer here.

Pours orange, large off white head
Smell big juicy pineapple and tropical fruit, light vanilla oak sweetness
Taste smooth fresh and hoppy front, oaky middle, bitter rindy finish with a sweet oak aftertaste
Solid, and I’m not usually a fan of oaked IPA kbutler1 (1381) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazed copper amber orange color with a very small bubbled tight antique white head. The aroma is very different than most IPA’s I have ever smelled with notes of pineapple, coconut, mango, and some citrus. The oak must really have an effect on the aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a nice amojnt of carbonation. The taste is sweet tropical fruit flavor followed by a nice hop bitterness in the end that lingers on for a while. Nice lace left on the glass as I drink this. The oak shows through in the beginning as well. It still amazes me all the things CCB does with a great base beer as the White Oak version is great!

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.

Very nice IPA. Orange brown clear pour. Light tan head. Nice piny hop aroma with woody notes. Lightly sweet flavor. Citrus hops and a bitter finish. Very herbal and piny. Creamy oak notes are noticeable in the background.

Tap sample. Tasted on the 12/05/2017 at MBCC (Copenhagen). Clear golden colour with a low white head. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, orange peel, sweet malts and tropical fruits. Taste is medium fruity and citric. Hoppy finish is medium with a light and soft carbonation. Next one please! ICEatALAMO (1350) - Troy, Michigan, USA - FEB 8, 2013
A great aroma mix of both tons of hops and the subtle oak that you get. The taste is brilliant. The oak flavor comes out, but not too strong and adds to the flavor for sure.

Can. Mostly clear golden pour. Aroma is melon, oak, a touch of tropical fruit. Taste is fairly bitter up front, nice melon notes, slight herbal as well. Balanced and tasty. potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 24, 2011

Pours a bright orange with a white lacing. Aroma is citrus, orange and grapefruit. Palate is sticky and boozy and flavor is sweet. Kind of a messy
