A- copper ale pours well with a light tanny brown head and a delightful bouquet
S- a light note of diacetyl and a nice oaky, tropical and fresh cut pine pine aroma with an undertone of vanilla notes
T-Citrus and tropical taste lends towards grapefruity and sweet vanilla also a light touch of dill( I honestly didn't taste the dill as much as the vanilla and tropical pine). Good characteristic of resin and earthy.
M- Medium to full body. About a finger of foam with a good retention and lacing. Carbonation id low to medium( nothing like a Belgium lol). Ends with a mellow to dry finish
O- Slightly sweet ipa with a perfectly balanced oak and hop character. Great beer for any great time
paire well with(pww)-steak and chicken with spices like curry, red peppers, banana peppers.and excellent with a roast beer sandwich.

Like its regular Jai Alai sibling, I absolutely love the smell of this beer. Jai Alai is one of my favorite IPAs, and this one does not disappoint. The oak aging gives it a very sweet, vanilla taste. It is a completely different taste that the very fruity Jai Alai regular. I really enjoyed this and wish I could have taken home more than just a four pack to Virginia.
