Forewarning, you better be in the mood to drink a Christmas tree when you order this one up. A recurring theme with Cigar City is that some of their flavoring processes will completely dominate and/or steamroll over the flavors of the base beer. In some cases, this creates a whole new beast (like with this White Oak Jai Alai) and in other cases it results in a nigh undrinkable brew. Fortunately, I am a fan of the flavor combination and the earthen, pine forest saturation in this variant is intoxicating. You can certainly tell that the delicious Jai Alai base is there and it melds well with the oak, which takes the base IPA by the hops and leads it away. Four stars on this one, a very tasty beverage that I thoroughly enjoyed.

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.
