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.

SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Pours cloudy pale orange with a small yellowish white head. Smells of citrus, pine, hints of spice, and subtle sweetness. Taste is bitter, hints of citrus and pine, with a solid oak dryness and a slight ting of sweetness. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and mildly active mouth-carbonation, Cigar City White Oak Jai Alai finishes with a smooth bitterness that paves the way for the next drink.

Tap at Copenhagen Beer Festival in Boston (9-24-2016) showing well filtered caramel brown with a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows light malts and hints of lemon. The palate is medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Flavors of light pineapple and pine resin with a light zesty bitterness. Simple but not bad.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Dan, served in a snifter at a tasting at Dans place. Served side-by-side with the base beer and the cedar aged version. Pours cloudy orange with a moderate tan head. The head remains and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has huge notes of oak, along with smoke, scotch and pine. It is less citric than either of the other two. The flavour is moderately bitter throughout, slightly sweet up front but dry towards the end. It is oaky smooth throughout. The finish is long and oaky, with a slight bitterness. On the palate, it is medium in body with a milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is the nicest of the trio. It has a subtle, soft oakiness and less acidity. It is less biting and more elegant. 2011-07-09

Aroma - pleasant mix of herbs, pine, and citrus hops. Appearance - the body is almost clean amber. The head is around 2" and off-white. Taste - has a nice pine, some citrus - grapefruit, a touch of oak, and some herbs. Palate - medium body, velvety, average carbonation, and slight herby, pungent, and bitter finish.

Trade bottle from DosBeerigos. Hazy orange with tiny white head. Aroma was very unique almost like sweet waffle and pastries. Taste was hoppy, oak, vanilla. Med body. well balanced. Good stuff.

Thanks to Adrian for this one. Poured into a can glass. Pours a pretty golden with floaty hop bits. Aroma is definitely an oak/hop combo that is pleasing. Flavor is a vanilla caramel oak flavor. Leads into a subtle hoppy flavor that is a lot similar to the aroma. I really like this beer.

12 oz. bottle received yesterday from biggsbowler, served in my stemmed snifter. great appearance with a hazy orange amber body and off-white frothy head which lasts. aroma is old perfume. taste is some biscuit and toast with some caramel and light bitterness, hints of tropical fruit, but kind of lifeless. upon closer inspection the bottle is stamped Sept. 2011, 4 - 5 month old bottle. me thinks this would be really good fresh.

dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2011
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.

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Bottle from Justin as an extra. Aroma is mango, some tropical fruit, maybe some vanilla, and dill? Flavor is refreshing mango, passion fruit, and key-lime. Low carbonation, despite very good retention, otherwise the palate is very pleasing. Has a slight bitter on the very end, but hardly another bitter note in there. I don't get a bunch of oak, but it does wonders. Excellent IPA! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
