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.

Amber orange color with lots of aired head with good retention.
Nice aroma of passion fruits, grapefruit and spicy and earthy hops.
Flavor of spiced and earthy hops, grapefruit, passion fruit, vanilla, charred wood, peaches, oranges, white grapes, pine and spices. Good malt complexity with toasted and some roasted notes. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 7.5% abv is well hidden.
Excellent American IPA, with lots of tropical fruits, spices and a nice earthy touch. I found it better than the regular version.
