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.

A big thanks to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, some citrus. Taste is hoppy, bitter, some oak and citrus, not bad, but I prefer the traditional Jai Alai. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer, but I was just a bit underwhelmed.

A- clear amber with fine particles in suspension. Creamy light tan head with excellent lacing.

S- tropical, lots of pineapple and some mango. Light peach notes as well with a hint of fresh cut timber.

T- I get more stone fruit than anything else on the palate, peach, apricot, and a light and fresh grapefruit finish. I can't say that I taste much in the way of oak. It's a pretty stellar tasting IPA though.

M- medium bodied, light carbonation. A little astringent.

O- great, but not a whole lot of oak in there.
