COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed and fermented in Puerto Rico, dry-hopped exclusively with Simcoe hops in the shipping container back to Tampa where it was canned at Cigar City Brewing. The voyage truly makes this a Caribbean-style India Pale Ale.

Can shared at GABF by the man himself. Thanks!! Lovely hopped beer, hinting towards the west coast style. Not crazy bitter, but quite hoppy, resin, grassy...nice stuff.

Very good beer and another one from these guys I wish we could get around here. Poured slightly warm with a large, cream-colored, thick, & fast settling to a sudsy thin cover with lots of clingy lace. Color is a slightly hazy amber with a few bubble trails. Aroma is an earthy hop, malt, resin. Taste is fantastic- a perfect blend of bitter and sweet, with just enough tang. Body is great, carbonation a touch soft. Finish is like flavor, stays true all the way thru to an an average tapering end. Super drinkable beer!

Pours a medium golden color with a finger of white sticky foam. Nose is a grassy, floral, lemon and a touch of stale hay. Palate is clean and lively. Nice traces of citrus, pine and a drawn out bitterness on the finish. Clean cracker malt like backbone.

jzzbassman (1466) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Canned. As much as I love the Jai Alai cans, this wasn’t quite as good. Pours clear orange with a nice white head. Aroma is oranges and grass. Earthy, with some tea tannin and extremely bitter. Juicy finish.

Can at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Pours a deep orange with a nice white head. Aromas of floral grassy hops, citrus and bread dough. Taste is fucking bitter. Huge hop profile for a 7% beer - dry citrus and pine hops cling to the palate. Thick bread dough coming through. Once the palate adjusts it's super easy drinking. Solid ipa! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can thanks to beechner224. Pours a clear golden color with a slight white head. Aroma is mostly bready with a slight mango undertone. Taste is slightly bitter but has lost a great deal of the dry hops in a month and a half. Medium carb and medium body.
