Reviewing from memory, and thanks to the ever-generous Three Fishes for sending this along. So many winners in that box. Unfortunately, this one tended towards the back of the pack. Can't beat the Jai Alai backbone, but I picked up on a strong tropical smell evocative of Coppertone. Can't say I know what Coppertone tastes like, but i have to think the coconut oil aftertaste White Oak delivers has to be pretty close. The beer still managed to be refreshing and suitable for summer. Perhaps paired with the right food would have provided a major a-ha moment, but as it was, it was merely OK.

4.04/5 rDev -4%
Received two bottles on 10-3-13 from Lets Pour for $6.50 each. Bottled on 9/3/13.
Beer poured orange with chunks of yeast. Head was OK but dissipated quickly.
Nose is wonderful, tropical hops dominate.
Taste was initially was big on vanilla notes with tropical hops dominating in the end.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and fairly lively from the carbonation.
Overall this is good. I am not crazy about oaking an IPA so i recommend hanging with the regular Jai Alai.
