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.

Thanks Shawn. Spicey IPA. Medium golden coloured body with enormous head that leaves a half inch of white head. The aroma is unuual as it has the cooked oak, interesting. Medium plus mouthfeel. Decent drinkability, but I could not drink a second bottle of this too soon. bee-aye 5K.

Sampled at the Great American Beer Festival 2016, Denver, CO.
Clear deep golden color with a mid-size foamy off-white head. The white oak ageing brings some woody, vanilla and sweet notes into this. Strong and flavorsome. Its much tastier and richer than the original Jai Alai.

Bottle shared by Shane, thanks! Poured a clear orange gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was a combination of pine, white oak and sweet grains. Flavor was more sweet from the grains with slight pine and juniper notes and a bit of oak backing.

Bottle This beer rocks! Hazy orange ale with a huge, frothy, white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma blows me away freshly cut firewood, tropical fruit medley, spruce and nectarine. I didnt think I could like the aroma of any other treatment of Jai Alai more than that of the Humidor IPA but now I do. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Bittersweet, fruity, spicy flavor and finish. World class beer!

Gold pour. Tons of tropical fruit, raw wood, citrus hops, honey and more. Flavor has a ton of fresh cut wood, citrus, pineapple and a really interesting finish: a dill note. Great beer!
