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.

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.

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.

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

Finally, the white oak. Was supposed to try this at Blind Tiger way back but it didnt show. Pours a light amber orange with a white foam head. Aroma of grapefruit, with hints of candi sugar, grapes, and coconut. Some earthiness in there as well. The aroma is the highlight of this brew. Light, sweet citrus taste with some lemongrass like spice, and caramel notes. Nice gentle bitter layer. It doesnt blow my mind but for some reason I want more.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2014 Original rating at GABF 2013: Pours cloudy yellow with huge particles, thin head. Aroma is citrus orange, overwhelming floral hops, spicy notes, oak, hint of candi. Taste is pretty smooth, straight up floral hops with a mix of earthy hops, kinda dry with a rye raw malt bite, and oak. Really nice. 4.1 Update rating on 4/12/14: At my place with Taylor and Jake, thanks to Matt and Kristin! Pours bronze-orange, not clear. Aroma is dry watermelon fruit, light fresh oak, dry Melon, musky. Taste is fruity hops, delicious hops I want to drink a shit load of. It is clique but the taste has a distinct oak flavor that is a unique note that stands on it own. A really nice fruity, not yeasty, delicious fruity hops brew. 4.0

Can thanks to the bearded TJ. Punch in the face with citrus slight oak notes, orange. Flavor brings the oak forward, really bringing the orange out.

Big wood and tropical fruit aromas. Slightly hazy orange brown with white head. Soft mango blends into bright wood flavor. The soft woodiness feels so nice on the tongue.

Can, 355ml. Clear orange/amber with a frothy tan head. Aromas of caramel, floral hops, vanilla, coconut, aged wood. Medium to full bodied, moderate to fizzy carbonation. Thick and oily. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Intense roasted and hoppy flavors into a heavy, spicy finish.

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.
