COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jai Alai India Pale Ale pays tribute to the original extreme sport. Jai Alai, a game native to the Basque region of Spain, is played on a court called a fronton. Jai Alai players attempt to catch a ball using a curved mitt, whilst the ball travels at speeds of up to 188 miles per hour! Proving they have a sense of humor the Spanish dub this game, with its ball traveling at race car speeds, """"the merry game."""" Tampa was once home to a busy Jai Alai fronton but sadly all that remains of Jai Alai in the Tampa Bay area is this India Pale Ale that we brew in tribute to the merry game. The India Pale Ale style of beer has its roots in the strong ales sent from England to thirsty British troops in India during the 18th century. To survive the journey the beers needed more alcohol and more hops (which act as a natural preservative). This “big” brewing practice made India Pale Ale one of the first """"extreme beers"""" and a favorite among the Queens military men in India. Eventually it became a favorite style of the new crop of American brewers seeking more flavor and complexity than mass-market brewers were willing to offer.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Bottle from May 23, 2011; an awesome extra from Gription79! Pours hazy dark copper and orange with a creamy 2-finger beige head that falls to a small rocky head, leaving webby lacing. The flavor is sweet citrus peel and bready malt, with a bitter pine and spicy citrus finish. Well-balanced. Moderate carbonation, full-bodied and rich, and warming. Really nice stuff. Thanks man!
