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.

Pours golden with a white head. Tropical fruit and citrus aroma. Flavor is tropical fruit with papaya and light mango. Grapefruit juice finish. Fantastic. More fresh hop flavor than I expected. Thanks to my neighbor that dropped this off.

Goodgrief (2016) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Can. Fruity like regular jai alai, but with a lot of oaky woodness. It struck me as super tasty but the tart finish grew on me poorly. Wasnt hugely digging it at the end. Just ok.

krumbum (1078) - truckee, California, USA - DEC 26, 2016
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.

ElCapitan22 (350) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2016
Pours a hazy dark copper color with no head retention or lacing. It has an aroma of pine rather than the suggested vanilla. There is a slight background flavor of dill but is definitely bitter and hop driven. A good beer, but is held back by its poor score for appearance.

Wonderful aroma of hops and citrus. Sweet citrus taste upfront with lot hops in the back. Light but delicious. Tap.
