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.

Procured from a recent trip to florida where I brought one suitcase for carrying back Cigar City beer (and some others not available in NJ). The appearance is similar to that of their regular IPA, if not a shade darker. Big fluffy head sits on top of a hazy amber brew. Hop aroma is subdued by the white oak, which compliments it wonderfully. Added vanilla to aroma. Little active carbonation when compared to the non aged variety. I never tasted a wood aged beer at all similar, which is a good thing. The white oak compliments and tones down the bite of the hops. Having a hard time describing all the flavors. Very good.

From can. Aroma is faint peach and oak. Taste is stone fruit with hints of vanilla and a soapy very lightly carbonated finish. Great hop burp. I like the regular way better but this stuff is really pretty good too.

Aroma - pleasant mix of herbs, pine, and citrus hops. Appearance - the body is almost clean amber. The head is around 2" and off-white. Taste - has a nice pine, some citrus - grapefruit, a touch of oak, and some herbs. Palate - medium body, velvety, average carbonation, and slight herby, pungent, and bitter finish.

Sample at GABF 2016. Medium high fluffy white lasting head. Clear amber body. Powerful fruity aroma of apples and pears with a subtle hint of dill. Apple pear lemon vanilla flavor with a fair amount of hops bitterness and a somewhat agressive alcohol contents. Low carbonation, long and dry finish.
