12oz Bottle from Rollin Oats Market Tampa FL for 3$
Appearance - Hazy copper with an average size fizzy off-white coloured head. It's too hazy to make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for around 3 minutes.
Smell - Hops, malts, caramel/butterscotch, pineapple
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel/butterscotch, malts, and hops. There is also some grapefruit and some pineapple mixed with a hint of vanilla and oak. It ends with a malty sweet and slight bitter aftertaste.
Overall – Couldn't find a date on my bottle, but it didn't have as much of an Oak aspect as I was expecting. Still a very good beer that has a lot of interesting flavours going on. I tried their Cedar aged version as well, and the wood was very prominent with that one.

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.

Can served at paradise by the slice.
Poured into a glass, it has a burnt orange color body with a small head. The aroma has a pine, citrus hints to it. The taste is oak and vanilla up front with piney hoppy ness to it. Also has a sweetness to it.
The mouthfeel is smooth and overall it is a great beer.
