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.

Orange with copper hues, off white thick head and tons of lacing. Big nose brings tropical and citrus notes and a vanilla to the backbone. Taste follows through with sweet tropical fruit, mango, orange, grapefruit and a vanilla cloak wraps it together and rounds off the bitter edge. Medium feel, little sticky on the feel and semi dry finish. Interesting new dynamic to these IPA flavors.

Canned 9/9/2014. Poured into Spieglau IPA glass.

Opaque orange in color with one finger of white head. Good retention and lacing. Citrus on the nose plus tropical fruits. Very similar to Jai Alai. Good mouth feel with fairly light carbonation. Taste is sweet citrus, orange/tangerine. Maybe pineapple and mango, hint of lime. Bitterness muted by vanilla and wood (but not smoke). Very smooth finish. Liked it better than "regular" Jai Alai!
