Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip. Many thanks to dachshundude86 for this one.
A: Pours a dark hazy amber with a 1finger head that quickly dissipates to a thin film. Plenty of lacing is present.
S: Oak, Toffee, Vanilla, a hint of resin/pine a hint of tropical fruit lingers as well.
T: Very close to the nose. Lots of Oak, toffee, vanilla some pine and hint of grapefruit.
M: Medium body and carbonation. Finish's dry and slightly watery.
O: Not sure what to make of it. Lots of oak but minimal citrus /IPA. Worth a tick non the less.
Serving type: bottle

Cigar City Brewing - White Oak Aged Jai Alai, poured into a DFH Spiegelau IPA glass.
Look - Pours a hazy deep caramel amber with a huge foamy head that retains some and leaves a ton of lacing.
Smell - The oak is definitely center stage with the juicy hop profile next and malt buried somewhere underneath.
Taste - Hoppy citrus with a wave of smooth woody oaky vanilla after and a pine wood finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and drinkable, refreshing pine. Rests dill.
Overall - I really liked this brew, hard to get into these wood-aged IPAs but it is an acquired taste, I'd like to get my hands on some more varieties.
Serving type: can
