A: This looks just like Jai Alai.
S: Jai Alai with a sweat peach nose.
T: Also tastes like it sounds. the citrus and floral hops work well with the peach.
O: Not my favorite CCB Jai Alai variant. You should try but i recommend the wood aged variants more.

Peach White Oak Variant
On draft...at my house, don't ask.
A- Pours out a cloudy, orange tinge with medium head as if you're pouring a Jai Alai, the coloring may be due to the peach but for the most part it's just a hair cloudier than the standard Jai Alai
S- All Peach,hint of orange and grapefruit coming off the base beer, very pleasant and inviting if you never had the beer before
T- Jai Alai at first, then comes the peach and on the backend the White Oak. If the beer is too cold then there's no way to taste the white oak, it completely disappears. If you're going to drink any Wood treated beer from CCB you have to let it sit for a good 10 minutes to fully appreciate the complexity of the flavors. This isn't my favorite Wood treated beer but that's mainly due to the Peach flavoring
M- Typical IPA, but there is a slight syrupy feeling lingering in the mouth if you are taking your time with drinking it (as in writing this review). I don't get that so much with the standard White Oak, must be something to do with the Peach treatment
O- Not bad for a treatment Jai Alai, I still prefer Tocobaga as my go-to crushable beer, even the treatments of Tocobaga are better than the Jai Alai even though Tocobaga doesn't get much love when it comes to distribution.
