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.

12 oz can was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A two finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy pale orange color with vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Super tropical, citrus, grassy, floral, vanilla, oak, toasted, bready, and caramel malts.

Taste: Pineapple, mango, coconut, papaya, peach, mango, herbal, citrus, grassy, vanilla, oak, toasted, bready, and caramel malts.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, cridp, mild mild bitterness, a little chewy, medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Clearly one of the best all around IPA'S one could have. Out of a can too. I need to revisit FL to get more of these. I wish I had more of these.
