Notes/Commercial Description:
This is an American White Oak-aged version of Jai Alai India Pale Ale. The white oak adds smoothing notes of vanilla and slight hints of dill to the aroma and flavor profile. The finish is elegantly dry due to the light tannin notes from oak aging and though still loaded with hop flavor, hop bitterness is more restrained.

Delicious! Great beer, highly recommended. From a 12oz bottle pours with a perfect head into my vintage mushroom glass, no sediment perfect appearance. Aromas are citrusy hops, fresh malt, vanilla oak. Mouthfeel is creamy, delicous flavors jump out alternating hops, malt, and wood. What a deliciously balanced, perfectly executed beer. Will gladly pick up several 4pks of this beauty. Will be staggering if I can find any draft. Great job boys!
