On cask at Vine & Barley Palm City. Served in a snifter.
Appearance - Deep orange. Hazy. Nice white head. Thick collar and a nice surface layer.
Smell - Blueberry and grapefruit hops. Some oak, but not as intense as White Oak Jai Alai. Sweet caramel malt.
Taste - The blueberry is really nice. Genuine fruit flavor. Much more oak. Hops seem secondary to a caramel maltiness. It does have a strong grapefruit pith bitterness, but the blueberry flavor lasts the longest.
Mouthfeel - Low carbonation. Medium heavy. Sweet, like Jai Alai tends to be.
Overall - The berry flavor is great. And White Oak is, as always, delicious.

On tap at the brewery tasting room.
Served in a CCB pint.
A: Poured a fairly crisp, clear, gold color with a bit of whipped topping that stained the glass on the way down.
S: Got the IPA part first, but the blueberry component was definitely unmistakable. Potent!
T: Extremely well-balanced with the blueberry playing second fiddle to the fiddle, but not by much, This was NOT a fruit beer. I liken this to DFH's "Aprihop." Sure, the apricot plays a role, but ultimately, it's an IPA and presents itself as such.
M: Ridiculous lacing on this... the glass ended up being used car wash stuff. The carb was picture perfect.
O: I really, really wanted to bring a growler of this stuff home, but those of you who know how CCB operates knows that that is futile idea. :(
Serving type: on-tap
