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.

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.
