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.

Pretty flat but a lot better smell than the regular JAi alai. Taste is extremely piney. It's unique

If the best IPA on the planet could get even better, it may have with this edition of Jai Alai. Strong vanilla notes, with even a hint of pickle. Amazingly complex and perfectly delicious IPA.
