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.

Poured from a bottle into a Sam Smith pint. Pours out a hazed golden orang. The head starts at about a half inch, not much lace retention.

Cumquat and oak rock the start of the smell, adds a very interesting twist to this IPA. Also notice caramel and orange.

Orange, fresh cut oak, caramel and grass start this one off well. A bit of vanilla and lemon rind around the middle. Spicy sappy wood at the finish. Very smooth, moderate body. Goes down very well.

I'm enjoying these Cigar City brews quite a bit. I preferred this to my four month old can of Jai Alai. When I finally make it back to FL, this brewery will be on my must visit list!
