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.

So much going on with this beer, unique and complex. Appearance is a murky dark golden color with sediments visible. A 1/2 finger white head lingered for a few sips. Aroma was nice and mellow with soft oak and then it hit you with some nice tropical fruits of orange zest and just a little grapefruit. It follows with dill pickle, so unique but so nice! On the palate there was nice oak up front followed by the orange zest in the middle with that dill in the background. It finished with some lingering earthy hops and just a hint of the grapefruit. Mouthfeel is what brought this beer up a notch with a medium body that was silky smooth with some soft carbonation.

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.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at the Crystal Beer Palace in Savannah. The appearance is a deep gold color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is full of fruit, hops and some oak. The taste is big on fruit with a noticeable touch of oak.

Can into tulip glass, hazy copper-golden color with light tan head. Aroma notes of fruity citrus hops, oak and caramel malt sweetness. Taste adds grapefruit, wood, vanilla, some apricot and dill. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, dry, tad sticky with bitter woody citrus finish. Like taking the regular to a woodier next level, very nice.

Orange to red pour with a single finger head with lace present. Aroma is fruity, also a bit of wood. Taste is nice, fruit, mostly grapefruit and hints of vanilla and oak. Lingering bitterness. Really great beer, nice take on regular Jai Alai, which is great already. Medium bodied.
