BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Cigar City Brewing
Florida, United States
cigarcitybrewing.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Beautiful copper color with half inch white foamy head. Overwhelming smells of grapefruit, pineapple and citrus. Tastes as great as it smells with oak (vanilla), pine (dill) and dry citrus too. Nice moderate carbonation( smoothed out by oak aging). This IPA is delicious and goes down very fast. Even better and slightly more complex than the regular Jai alai due to oak aging. Well balanced heavy malt presence. The citrus really pops in the aromas and flavors. Fantastic flavor, I could drink the whole pack at once if not for the ABV.

Hints of vanilla, oak. Not overly bitter. Aroma hops give this beer an interesting perspective.
