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.

Specfor (2) - manchester, Maryland, USA - OCT 30, 2011 does not count
Pours a unfiltered opaque honey color with small white head with large lingering bubbles. A light hoppy aroma with a suttel sweetness unforchinley the oak note does not show up on the aroma. The oak that does not show up on the arom dominates your mouth with the first drink finish lightly hoped with a bitter sweetness. The finish is the highlight of the beer because of all the arama and flavor linger on you palate. Overall good BEER.&&
