On tap at blind tiger. Pour is gorgeous dark hazy caramel. Taste is apple and graham... Hop too much hop. Full bodied beer.

Draft at Blind Tiger during my lunch break. Pours a bright orange body with thin white lacing. Aroma is cinnamon, apple, and additional spice. Mouthfeel is delicious and smooth with notes of APPLE CORE, cinnamon, citrus, light citrus hop, and maybe some earthy pine as well. Essentially tastes like sucking on an apple core, another incredibly unique brew by CCB.

Draught at Blind Tiger. Cloudy orange with a lasting 1 1/2 finger off-white head. Earthy bitter apples and cinnamon up front, some citrus hops behind, but not very juicy or bright. Just a little toasted malt. Hops are a little more citrusy in the flavor, still has the apples and cinnamon going on, though the bitterness tends to be the dominant flavor. Alcohol noticeable throughout, semi-dry finish, bitterness peaked at a 7 and lingers with the cinnamon. Medium full body with moderate creamy carbonation. The jury is still out on this one--I appreciate the originality, but too much bitterness, not bright enough aroma hops, and I would’ve liked a little more apple notes. That said, glad I got to try it

Tap at FITR. Pours an dark orange with a thick off white head. Nice apple pie, cinnamon, spices and citrus hops in the aroma. Taste is very much the same, warm apple pie, cinnamon, grapefruit citrus hops all popping through. Excellent brew.

On draft at Fruit in the Room @ CCB. Pours about the same color as normal Jai Alai: yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is some citrus, apples, cinnamon, and spices. Flavor is similar with a medium body and lingering spice in the finish.

Poured at fruit int the room. A light hazy orange, yellowish color with a stong aroma of hops, apples and a hint of cinnamon. Tastes likr the normal jai lai but with apples, extremely refreshing beer.
