Can. A nicely complex aroma combining tropical fruits, citrus and pine notes. Flavour is hoppy but not overpowering, well balanced. A top-notch IPA.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
golden to orange colour, 1 inch. dense off-white head; aroma and taste of overripe tropical fruits, pine resin, peach, and some caramel notes; amazing IPA from a metal can - ok, it may have importance, whether a beer is filled into metal can, or a glass, but it is excellent despite the fact that it is a canned beer...

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice robust orange pour, mostly clear, effervescent with an inch of fluffy off-white head. Juicy hop nose: tropical fruits like pineapple, papaya, juicy grapefruit and orange too, hints of lemon, apricot and fresh peach. Average carbonation, mouthfeel slightly oily, crisp finish. Smooth almost subtle taste. Flavors of orange, grapefruit, and a little bit of pine and rind, kind of resinous. Very smooth, un-bitter IPA with a bouquet of flavors all its own. Definitely a stand out.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I couldn’t get enough of this beer on my last trip to Florida. Poured a 12 oz can into a small mug. Pours a hazy golden orange with a foamy white head that laces as you drink it down. Love the head on this beer. Aromas of lemon and orange citrus, floral, finished by fresh hops. Flavors of pine, grapefruit, bitter hop oils, and sweet hibiscus. Light body, medium carbonation, effervescence continously bubbling to the top. This is what an IPA should be, hoppy bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Persistent 2-finger light fawn-coloured head, near clear amber body, carpets and crocheted fields inside the mug.
Aroma of lemon, pine n resin, ashy but sweet malts, floral freshness, very inviting.
Taste is resin, lemon, roasted malts, hazelnut hints, barbecue, citrus peel.
Well bodied, fine decent carbonation, really nice on palate.
Finishes on strong hops, resin, apricot notes, or maybe faint peaches, more resiny malts to the end.
Lingering. At final end somewhat warming. Solid IPA.

355 ml. can sampled @ Pure Apricot Tasting. Thanks! Bottled on 08/08/2014 so about 1 month old. Pours typical amber, fading off-white bubbles head. Thick sticky resin nose with touch caramel, lots of bitter pine / hop resin. Taste is sweet sticky caramel leading into oodles of bitter resin, brown sugar, light bitter herbal hop note, bitter tropical fruit,… Thick resin / caramel body. Very solid IPA. This one came out at the top in a tasting involving lots of big name DIPA’s & IPA’s.

Jai Alai is the best IPA I have ever had. A phenomenal brew that "wows you" from the minute I cracked open the can and poured it into a glass, Aroma, appearance and taste were all max scores. A must buy if you have not tried this IPA.

Can to glass. Pours a clear copper. Light head with fine lacing. Aroma is citrusy hop and some sweet caramel. Medium thick mouth. Sweet malt flavor with good hop finish. Maltier than expected from an IPA but smooth and tasty. 7.5 ABV
