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.

Pours deep orange. It was pretty clear until the last of the bottle was poured, then lots of sediment clouded my glass. Kind of wish I left the last bit in the bottle.

Smells very woody almost like a freshly cut piece of timber, I am also getting subdued hops and honey sweetness.

Tastes of waxy honey comb, vanilla tannins, slight mango. An interesting combo of flavors for sure, but I find my self missing the fresh tropical and guava notes on the original.

Medium mouthfeel and carb.

Overall, not as fruity and tropical as the regular Jai Alai which as it turns out I prefer to this. An enjoyable offering from CCB, but would not got to great lengths to seek out again.
