RnH: tap: really great IPA!!! Thoroughly enjoyed this one... Pours a hazy amber, fantastic dry head, great lacing all the way through. Loads of citrus, bright fruits and bitters... some earthy, woods, dirt tones. The taste offers much of the same... I really like the citrus and hop combo, becoming a huge fan of the taste.... this beer does it well!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2010 On tap in a pint glass. Very fruity aroma on this puppy - even some cherry in there methinks, with a hint of grass and pee. The flavor is maltier, pretty well balanced, but also finishes nice and dry. This is good stuff.
Have had this several times since my first rate. When fresh, the aroma is amazingly tropical - think guava, mango, pineapple, grapefruit. SO GOOD!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Cock & Bull Pub. Poured a clear copper color with an average ceeamy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus and earthy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft @ Underground Bluz. I had been wanting to t;ry this beer for a long time. I was not disappointed. One of the smoothest, freshest IPAs I have had. Taste was pink grapefruit from the start, but not bitter like some of the yellow varieties of grapefruit. (Being a Floridian, I know the difference.) Nice hoppy finish with no distractions along the way. Refreshing.

Cigar city jai lai. Poured a deep reddish orange with a fluffy off white head. Hoppy and malt nose. Reminded me of six points malt yeast base with different hop notes sweet hops with a strong malt base. I like a lot of this beer but could do without the sweetness.

Been looking forward to trying something from Cigar City, since they seem to be one of the hot beers recently. This was on tap at Rattle’n’Hum. Jai Alai is a dry, piney, astringent, West Coast syle IPA. Very flavorful, and a very good brew overall.
