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.

about as good as it gets for a single IPA. strong hop taste, but nicely balanced for a smooth finish. getting more and more difficult to get, but worth the purchase when I can get to PA to snag a case!

Serving: from tap at Shrimpys Pub. Aroma: heavy, pine hop. Appearance: small, creamy, off-white initial head with fair lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Hazy, dark-yellow body. Taste: moderately bitter, heavily citrusy initial flavor and heavily bitter finish with average duration. Palate: medium bodied with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall: excellent. Great aroma. Citrus flavor balances the bitterness.

Puszka 33cl. OCZY : piwo jest mętne o kolorze pomarańczowym. Piana piwa jest mała ale trwała o kolorze białym. NOS : piwo ma intensywne aromaty skórki cytrusowej, marakui i świeżego ananasa. Do tego wyostrzają aromat nuty żywiczne i jakby estrowe. Tarta i delikatna wiśnia w kompocie dochodzi gdy piwo postoi w szklance i się ogrzeje. USTA : mało gazowane ale daje uczucie w ustach kremowości i puszystości. Całkiem słodkie o nutach tarty i słodkich owoców tropikalnych z puszki. Dochodzi lekka kwaskowatość i cierpkość podobna do skórki cytrusów i niedojrzałego ananasa. I to jest to co wyróżnia to piwo od innych IPA : cierpkość owocowa i lekka ale rzadko spotykana w tym stylu estrowość. Gorzkość jest spora ale nie zalega i nie ściąga. Uderza nutami pestek i skórek cytrusów i sokiem grejpfruta. Posmak jest średnio długi, owocowy i piekący jak imbir i niedojrzały ananas. ODCZUCIA : co tu gadać, referencja. Jest całkowicie inny niż bym się spodziewał. Wyobrażałem sobie piwo kompletnie pozbawione estrów o czystych nutach słodu i chmielu a tutaj mamy wytrawność i estrowość. plus nuty owocowe są cierpkie. Ciesze się, że jestem zaskoczony. OCENA : smak : 8/10 pijalnosc : 8/10 styl : +1

Servi en canette dans un restaurant d’un hôtel Disney. Couleur orangé avec une forte mousse blanche sur le dessus. Palais faible, beaucoup de fraicheur. Arôme d’agrumes, de fleur, un peu plus sucré que la norme. Trčs trčs rafraichissante et gouteuse.
