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.

Thanks to mrpepino for this extra, cheers! June bottling.

Appearance – Pours a hazy, cloudy orange into a tulip. About a half finger of slight off white head is achieved with a moderate pour.

Smell – Pale malts, slight oak and vanilla, caramel, and just a hint of hops.

Taste – I’m assuming this might be a bit past its prime. The flavors start off with quite a bit of oak and vanilla. A hint of smokiness is present midway through. As the beer warms more bitterness comes through which is a bit odd. The beer finishes with a heavy caramel, toffee backbone.

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied, moderate carbonation.

Overall – A decent IPA. Even though it may be a bit past its prime, it is still quite tasty.
