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.

maekchu (3821) - Hirakata, - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle at sampling session. From notes (Oct. 8, 2011). Mixed notes in aroma: oak (for sure), vanilla, coconut, and some citrus. Cloudy orange color. Sweet, honeyish iniitial, more oak, and light hopping. Oily sort of palate. I like it. But the oak is just too much here.

ramboraffe (2159) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2017
Sample at MBCC2017. Golden with white head. Fruity hoppy with oaky vanilla. I dont think the oak and hops mix very well, making the IPA feel old and dull.

HuskerTan (2145) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Bottle. A- Dill, oak, citrus, pine. A- Golden orange color, clear liquid, off white head. T- Dill, oak, floral, mild bitterness. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, slightly bitter finish. O- The oak aging definitely does bring out a lot of wood and dill flavor. Not bad but a bit different. Not sure if I like it better than the regular Jai Alai or not.
