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. :(
