TURDFERGUSON (4068) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2010
Draught @ CC. This was very tropical and oaky, just as it says it’s name. However, the oak character proved to be a little distracting as many ipa’s aged in Oak can be for this rater of the beers. Papaya, coconut, mango fruits hanging around. Very interesting and solid, but I still like the regular jai alai the best.

On tap at Fruit of the Room. This is probably my favorite version of this beer. It pour like regular jai Alai, but has way more tropical fruit aromas. The taste was similar with the great oak and Jai Alai flavors but with tropically/florally accents. Great job with this beer.....

markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2010
I really liked this one, and thought it was a CCB standout at Fruit in the Room. Pours typical Jai Alai color with an off-white head. Nose is malt, caramel, slight coconut, apricot, kumquat, and all manner of citrus and tropical fruit. Flavor is similar with all kinds of fruit complimenting the flavor of the oak and the citrus quality in the IPA. Very nice.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2010
Tap @ Fruit in the Room. Hazy copper body with a medium sized beige head. Big tropical fruit notes in the nose as well as citrus and pine, softer note of woody oak. Fairly full body with good carbonation and a sticky mouth feel. Flavor starts with a sweet tropical/citrus note, plenty of bitterness to balance it out though, mid way through loads of caramel some vanilla and soft oak, pine notes throughout. Finishes very smooth with moderate bitterness and some spice. For me CCB always nails it with their tropical treatments.

Ibrew2or3 (8814) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 28, 2010
On tap at Fruit in the Room at Cigar City Brewing. Pours murky copper with gold edges and tan head. The aroma is softer and milder than the bottle version of White Oak with hints of sweet tropical fruit wafting upward amid modest notes of spicy oak, citrus hops and a sense of pine hops. The taste is similar where the spicy oak is less forward than in the White Oak version interlaced with thin ribbons of citrus hops and sweet tropical notes. It ends both sweet with tropical-citrus and spicy with oak creating a pleasing palate and balance.

hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2011 Draft… CCB Fruit in the Room 2010... This beer rocks!… pours orange with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Like the white oak treatment, the aroma is heavy with freshly cut oak and spruce, but this version is more fruity than the white oak, which is pretty fruity in its own right - mango, papaya, pineapple and nectarine. Medium to full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor offers toffee, earthy and citrusy hop bitterness and tropical fruits. Finishes spicy, fruity and mildly bitter. The addition of tropical fruit takes nothing away from the greatness of White Oak. I have no idea what tropical fruits this beer is aged with, but they work well. Wayne’s gonna end up turning me into an IPA guy if I’m not careful. World class brew!
