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.

I got a can of Cigar City's Jai Alai IPA - White Oak that my friend brought back from his tip to the brewery, thanks Ben! I've been wanting to try this beer for awhile and I'm expecting good things since the base IPA is damn good, so lets see how it goes. Canned 5/13/14. Poured from a 12oz can into a snifter.

A- The can looks nice. it's a little similar looking to the base IPA's can, but this one has a oak tree like background that helps make it look different, I think it's a little eye catching. It poured a nice darker orange color that took on more of an amber orange color when held to the light and it had about two fingers worth of creamy off white head that died down to a thin ring that stayed till the end and it left some nice patchy rings of lacing. This was a pretty good looking beer, I have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a higher amount of medium sweetness followed by the white oak being the first to show up and it imparts some nice woody, oak, and vanilla like aromas with the vanilla seeming to stick out the most. Up next comes those fruity hops which blend well with the oak and they impart a nice citrus and tropical fruit like aroma some citrus zest and pineapple aromas seeming to stick out the most. Towards the ends comes the malts which are on the lighter side and it imparts just a sweet malt like aroma. This beer had a very nice aroma, the white oak worked well with the juicy and fruity hops from the base IPA.

T- The taste seems to be pretty similar to the aroma and it starts off with a slightly higher amount of medium sweetness followed by the hops being the first to show up this time they impart that same fruity and juicy hop profile from the aroma with the citrus rinds and pineapple still sticking out the most. Up next comes a slightly malty flavor with sweet malts sticking out the most and it's followed by the white oak which imparts the same nice aspects that it did in the aroma with the vanilla and oak seeming to stick out the most. On the finish there's a medium amount of bitterness with a fruity hop, oak and vanilla like flavors in the aftertaste. This was a very nice tasting beer, I thought the white oak worked nicely with the juicy and fruity hop flavors.

M- Smooth, clean, a little refreshing, a little crisp, medium bodied with a slightly lower amount of medium carbonation. The mouthfeel was very nice and it worked well this beer.

Overall I thought this was a very nice beer and I thought it was a very nice example of a wood aged IPA, the oak seems to show up at just the right level and while the hops weren't as juicy as they were in the base IPA, but they still worked well with the oak and they made for a good combination. This beer had good drinkability, it was smooth, clean, a little refreshing, a little crisp, not too filling and the taste did a good job at holding my attention, I could drink a few of these and it seems like a good beer to have for a summer bonfire. What i like the most about this beer was how the white oak worked with the juicy and fruity hops, they were a better combination then I thought they would be. What I liked the least about this beer was nothing, there isn't anything that I could think of to make this beer better, it's really nice just the way it is. I would buy this beer if i ever had the chance and I would recommend this to anyone one who thinks a white oak IPA sounds good, I think it will meet most expectations. All in all I was pretty happy with this beer, i think prefer the regular version of Jai Alai, but this one is still very nice and it retained a good amount of those great hoppy aspects that the base beer had. It's not my favorite Cigar City beer, but it's for sure one of my favorite oaked IPAs and I'm glad I had a chance to try it. Great job guys, this was one unique and interesting beer, keep up the great work.

Thanks to sendsilk for this.

I'm not into re-reviewing beers on here anymore, but I hated to drop a full review for an updated "had" so here we are...

As Cigar City expands, all of their product is looking much better, tasting cleaner, etc. I feel like this beer is either dialed in moreso than my 3.7 review of years back, or else it's simply much better extremely fresh (these cans are under 20 days old as of my drinking).

Lovely clarity and bone white head on a light copper colored brew. Leaves nice lacing.

Smells wonderful yet cheeky at the same time. The oak is prevalent off the bat, very heavy notes of fresh cut wood (one person I shared this with said it reminded them of wood shop in High School). There are notes of vanilla and a lot of floral character from the oak. The hops are fruity and bold, but the interaction with the oak is where the beer gets quite unique. At times the aroma is of fresh juicy tropical hops, and at others you can smell bubblegum and smarties.

The flavor follows in line with immense hop flavor and heavy but welcome oak. The bitterness is somewhat mellowed by the oak yet the perceived alcohol seems higher than regular Jai Alai.

Creamy mouthfeel with ample carbonation. Overall a great take on their flagship IPA. Recommended.

Aging in barrels can be a messy, muddying affair - and you wouldn't want to filter out any of those rich, wonderful flavours the process imparts, would you? Fortunately virgin white oak spirals don't wreak the same havoc on appearance: White Oak Jai Alai is as clear and colourful as the original, with the same beaming orange radiance and solid, if a little spotty head.

The power of suggestion is an amazing thing. Lots of people claim to actually smell and taste hints of dill, just like the label says. I get where they're coming from, though I doubt I'd make the connection without the brewery's help. But who's to say? Fermentation creates all sorts of complex flavour compounds - and adding wood to the mix only adds to the intricacy.

Besides, the beer really is as advertised: tropical, juicy flavours of tangerine and clementine dominate both the nose and palate and vanilla and coconut also factor noticeably, as do nuances of toasty wood spice and sawdust. The taste has a lovely interplay between cantaloupe and caramel, while the oak also dials back much of the earthy, sometimes onion-y dankness of the original. It reminds me a lot of Alpine's Exponential Hoppiness (which is high praise indeed!)

Wood-aged IPAs aren't as popular as wood- or barrel-aged stouts but they make just as good of a base. The wonderful result that stems from the synergy between citrus and tropical fruit notes and creamy, vanillin-rich oak is something Chardonnay producers have understood for many decades - it's about time brewers caught on.

The addition of American oak similarly adds complexity without making things any more complicated. White Oak Jai Alai is still that juicy, over-the-top tropical hop cocktail that everyone knows and loves, albeit with an added touch of distinction, elegance and increased composure. Like the original, this one definitely lives up to all the hype!

Light bronze in color with minimal head thT dissipates to a fine lace after a few sips. Nose shows a bit of fruity sweetness with subtle hop notes. Taste is citrusy, maybe fruity pebbles, with a surprising lack of wood flavor. However the wood manifests itself with a dry finish. Very refreshing and drinkable.

Poured into a tulip.

Look is a copper orange with a nice foamy head, nice lacing.

Nose is hops and earth, probably from the white oak. Definitely not the citrus hoppy regular version.

Taste follows the nose. White oak suppresses the citrus and gives it a creamy bitter hopped up version. I really dig it. Strong though as you get through it.

Mouth feel is medium bodied, with a long finish. I think it's the oak.

Overall a solid beer. Way different than regular jai alai. I love them both and appreciate the difference between the two. Solid IPA, strong as heck. Two of these and a buzz is coming.

12oz can from Noble Grains NYC on the UES
Pours light amber orange with a pinch of haze and bubbly white head with boozy lacing, smells like dried apricots, grassy pine, eucalyptus, hint of malts and sweet citrus zest, candied pinecone, taste is soft sweet malts that transitions into deep numbingly dank bitter pine/ citrus peel, feel is medium bodied with good carbonation and szechuan spice level numbingness. Like eating fresh orange peels, citrus zest to the max.

On tap at BX Beer Depot's CCB Tap Takeover - looking forward to this one

Really different than Jai Alai and Cedar Jai Alai. Citrus (orange, orange marmalade) and jam flavors. Unique. Mellow and lacking bitterness. Slight herbal spice to it. Dry dry dry with an oak finish.

Tasted side by side with the original version. The nose is much more subdued. Somewhat cloudy. Taste and mouthfeel are more calm and muted. If you are craving an in your face hop loaded ipa then stick with the original. If you want an easy sipping smooth ipa then this is the one for you.

Canned 9/9/2014. Poured into Spieglau IPA glass.

Opaque orange in color with one finger of white head. Good retention and lacing. Citrus on the nose plus tropical fruits. Very similar to Jai Alai. Good mouth feel with fairly light carbonation. Taste is sweet citrus, orange/tangerine. Maybe pineapple and mango, hint of lime. Bitterness muted by vanilla and wood (but not smoke). Very smooth finish. Liked it better than "regular" Jai Alai!

12oz btl served in a Stella glass

A: Initial pour results in a glass half filled hazy golden orange liquid and the other half with fluffy luxurious cream colored head. Head dissipates into rocky formations as I try to fit the rest of the beer into the glass.

S: Very unique. Soft vanilla aroma. Honey drenched herbal hop scents. Picking up a little fresh mint. Sugary and spicy. The smell is like no IPA I've ever encountered and its tremendous, certainly not typical, but amazing nonetheless.

T: Mirrors scent in a lot of ways. It is clear that Jai Alai is the base beer, but the white oak treatment has made it much better than the original IMHO. Sweet vanilla and woody flavors accentuate some of the strong qualities of the standard brew. Hops are slightly subdued but some citrus, herbal, and spicy notes are present. Sweet fruity flavors are abundant. The finish is very neutral, with a balance between sweet and dry.

M: Has a coating feel. Carbonation is good.

D: I wish I had another bottle or two. This is a unique beer that will hold one's interest.

Enjoyed this much more than the standard Jai Alai. Looking forward to trying other versions.

Appearance - Gorgeous amber orange body, that is kind of cloudy. Pours a nice 2 finger light cream colored head with great retention and a thick/uniformed lacing all the way down the glass Small bubbles are visible rising up from the bottom of the glass.

Smell - Extremely floral smell with a lot of citrus in the nose as well. Some kind of fruit that I can't quite narrow down, I'm leaning towards mango, a little bit of spice to round it all out. Overall sweet nose with very little hop aroma.

Taste - Extremely bright/crisp flavor that starts with a rather sweet fruity taste that transitions almost effortlessly to a more bitter and lingering mixture of sweet malts and a very subtle oak flavor.

Mouthfeel - highly carbonated ale that is also rather thick in consistency. A little more carbonation than I generally like in my IPAs, but it works well with the sweetness of this brew.

Overall - A friend of mine recommend this beer to me and I have to say I am thoroughly impressed with every aspect of it. From the gorgeous head that lingers until the last sip to the sweet citrus taste that had me sipping this beer extremely quickly just to narrow down each and every flavor of this wonderful beer.

A cool take on an already good beer. Additional barrel character and sweeter notes on the palate make this a refreshing product.

The highlight of this beer is that it eliminates the necessity to have to have Jai Alai super fresh.

12oz, 1/11/14
DFH IPA glass

A: Very pretty appearance in the glass. Crystal clear deep orange color. Nice frothy off white head with sticky lacing sheeting which starts immediately. Good carbonation.

S: Definitely pulling some of those vanilla woody notes right away. It meshes well with the more earthly hop notes of pine and muted citrus. Actually getting more of a melon character. Some of that dill is there.

T: Much like the nose. You get that nice touch of vanilla on the tip of the tongue. Then some of that earthy pine and muted citrus. Oak dryness. Slightly tannic. I do get that flavor of dill in there. That vanilla really works so well with the bitterness. It's not as lingeringly bitter on the back end.

M: Medium bodied. Soft mouthfeel, which is extremely pleasant.

Crowler from a trade with Brian. Love this guy. Thanks, man!

A- I'm on my second pour, so there's some sediment in here. Other than that, it's a lovely, clear bronze. Finger and a half of head with decent retention. Fades to a nice cap, leaving lacing on the glass.

S- Really interesting. Certainly some piney,resinous, and grassy hops with some citrus rind. Smells super green. Like pine trees in the spring. Touch of caramel. An herbal influence as well. Real nice.

T- You get the malty sweetness up front, then pine on the finish. Wood aging compliments this nicely, taking the edge off of the bittering hops. But, due to freshness, those hops still have a say. Love the flavor profile.

M- Medium carbonation, medium mouthfeel. This is smooth, clean drinking.

O- It's been some time since I last had regular Jai Alai, but, from what I remember, I like this much more. Beautiful nose and flavors. Would gladly drink this again.

This was a really interesting beer. Here goes:

A: Clear orange with OK head and lacing. Carbonation is somewhat lacking for the style overall, however.

S: Very...complex. Initial scents of flowers and grass, orange, citrus, mango, and pineapple (really a concoction of tropical fruit) followed by bourbony oak.

T: Follows the nose extremely well. Floral and fruitish tastes and taken over by vanilla and oak, leaving a very bourbony taste at the back of the palate.

F: Nice and full-bodied.

O: Very complex and interesting. Will be having again.

12 oz can ....canned 3-28-16 printed on the bottom of the can (less then a week ago, nice)

Pours hazed, glowing ruby hued amber. Fine and nice looking lite khaki head, leaving fine sheet down low and some spotty froth higher up.

Nose is dominated by sweet woody notes and some piney hops

Super tasty and enjoyable wood infused IPA. Some spiced up hop notes, smokey mangos, light wood, complex and well worth trying if you see it in your local shop or bar...happy to try a few of these wonderfully fresh samples.

Growler shared by Lee - much obliged!

Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a one-finger off-white head. The head recedes into a patchy layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of smooth pale malts with good amounts of pine and citrus hops. Also present are mild amounts of vanilla aromas.

Tastes very similar to how it smells. Pale malts with hints of darker caramel malt flavors kick things off and are joined quickly by bright citrus hop flavors. Midway through the sip the hop flavors fill out a bit with the addition of pine flavors and shortly thereafter vanilla flavors make an appearance. The vanilla flavors carry through to a solidly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is very good. It's got a smooth thickness with grainy carbonation.

Drinkability is also very good. I finished my glass quickly and could easily have a few more.

Overall this was a very nice example of an oak-aged beer - the influences were subtle but undoubtedly there. Well worth a shot.

Canned 9/9/14 so I let it sit for a while. Pours a cloudy orange with a good amount of white head. Leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. In the nose you get the unmistakable characteristic of an oak aged beer. Some vanilla and earthiness with some orange. Taste is very well balanced between orange and grapefruit from the original Jai Alai and the vanilla and earthiness from the oak. The bitterness is definitely smoothed out from the oak aging. Mouthfeel is a little thick but overall smooth and easy to drink. Good amount of carbonation. Overall, a very good variation on the original Jai Alai. It's definitely a unique experience as the flavors you get from the oak are that of what you might expect in a barrel aged barleywine or scotch ale. But, if I had the choice I would stick to the original. This is definitely something worth trying though.

Canned 11/10/16, pours very hazy gold color with a thick foamy 2 finger white head that was full of bubbles of all sizes, dissipating very slowly and leaving great looking foamy lacing and rings as it went down. The foamy dropped and settled into a layer on top that lasted for a few minutes.

The aroma is a mix of citrus and oaky/woody notes up front with lemon zest, orange peel, grapefruit, muscat grapes, fruit juice, coconut, vanilla, herbal earthy notes and wood from the white oak. It's got all the IPA citrus zest combined with some nice woody sweetness that somehow makes it seem balanced even though there's not much malt in play.

Tastes very similar to the nose with the citrus and oaky/woody notes up front, followed by the coconut and vanilla, then with the mix of lemon zest, orange peel, grapefruit, muscat grapes, pineapple juice, herbs, earthy notes, obviously some wood influence from the white oak and then some mild peppery spices. Almost has a Belgian IPA flavor about it until the vanilla and ashy wood come back and bring nice drying components.

Mouthfeel is creamy and velvety smooth with mild carbonation, a grapefruit-like bitterness but then vanilla a oaky notes as it finishes on the dry side. It trails off with some grainy notes and then seems like grapefruit juice evaporated in my mouth...pretty cool was to end each sip.

Overall a great off-shoot from the fantastic base Jai Alai IPA. This is different enough from the original with the white oak adding a lot more complexities and helping to completely mask the 7.5% ABV. A nice treat from Cigar City. I'm a huge fan of the regular Jai Alai so I will seek this out again,

Had this on tap just the other day. First of all, living in Florida, a drink a LOT of Jai Alai, who wouldn't. So of course I needed to try this. I have never had a beer keep more flavor from the wood than this did. WOW, oaky like you wouldn't believe. Earthy, almost vanilla like, just superb.

Cigar City Brewing - White Oak Aged Jai Alai, poured into a DFH Spiegelau IPA glass.

Look - Pours a hazy deep caramel amber with a huge foamy head that retains some and leaves a ton of lacing.

Smell - The oak is definitely center stage with the juicy hop profile next and malt buried somewhere underneath.

Taste - Hoppy citrus with a wave of smooth woody oaky vanilla after and a pine wood finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and drinkable, refreshing pine. Rests dill.

Overall - I really liked this brew, hard to get into these wood-aged IPAs but it is an acquired taste, I'd like to get my hands on some more varieties.

12oz bottle poured into CCB snifter. Thanks to johnyb for this one.

A- Pours a little bit hazy orange brown with about a finger and a half of foamy white head that has excellent retention and coats the glass in lacing. Decent amount of consistently rising carbonation bubbles.

S- Citrusy hops of lemon and grapefruit balanced with sweet vanilla extract, oak, and a hint of dill. Very well balanced, fairly aromatic, appealing, interesting, and fairly complex for an IPA.

T- Surprising amount of citrus lemony hops that balance with an oaky vanilla extract flavor that gives a fairly sweet taste that balances surprisingly well with the citrus. Finishes with significantly more oaky vanilla, a considerable amount of dill (even more then the nose), and a little bit of a bitter hop bite (a little bit more then I was expecting). Lingering aftertastes of citrus hops, vanilla, and dill. The white oak definitely gives it a very unique IPA taste that is surprisingly very tasty and balances well.

M- Medium bodied, nice carbonation, very smooth, lightly creamy, very easy to drink.

O- This is probably one of the most interesting beers I've had to date. I haven't had many barrel-aged IPAs (probably mostly CCB ones), but this is probably my favorite. It drinks kind of like a citrusy milkshake when you take in consideration the smooth vanilla, foamy head, and creamy feel. Unlike any other beer I've ever had and very well done. It might not be for everyone, but I definitely recommend trying it out.

Picked up a 4 pack from the brewery. This one will be in stores very soon.

A: Poured into my pint glass, this brew pours a little hazier orange than regular Jai Alai with a wonderful pillow like head that is leaving some decent lace. This is exactly what one should expect in an IPA.

S: The aroma is heavy citrus and piney hops. You can make out a mellowing of the malt due to the oak aging. The complexity of this brew is getting much better with each edition from CCB.

T: The flavor of this IPA is more along the lines of a California DIPA. Seems like CCB upped the hops for the barrel aging, but those hops decided to stick around. Lots of complexity and real oak/vanilla flavors. Fruit notes still shine through, along with sweet malty goodness.

MF: The mouthfeel is smooth, full, and well carbonated. The hops don't tear up your pallet. This is a nice one.

D: Drinkability is great.

Overall, I can't believe how well crafted this IPA is. The white oak aging is just one factor here. Seems like every version (Humidor IPA being my favorite) of Jai Alai is stellar.
