Jai Alai - Cigar city brewing
APPEARANCE: Pours an attractive deep golden orange, with a nice creamy eggshell colored head that really stuck around. Finally settled into a nice thin halo that left some really great lacing.
AROMA: The smell reminds me of my bar ha! Lots of fresh cut citrus fruit and fresh squeezed juices. Even has that piney/woody aroma that my bar has with the huge wood bar top and shelves. Nice amount of malty sweetness that rounds out the bouquet.
TASTE: Really follows the nose, like biting into a pieces of toasted bread smothered with a tropical fruit marmalade. Nice amount of piney hop bitterness that I really enjoy. Slight earthy, floral undertone that brings it all together on the backend.
MOUTHFEEL: Medium body and Medium carbonation. Nice creaminess that still delivers a slightly sticky feel. Great long tingly bitter finish.
OVERALL: I've had Jai Alai once before and didn't like it at all. Had a odd fish oil, omega 6 pill thing going on. Really glad I ended up giving this another try. I am guessing I had a bad can first time around. I thought this was an outstanding ipa really enjoyed the Caribbean fruit influence they have going on.
RATING: 4.2/5 Zombie Heads!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a welcoming amber/orange with glimpses of that lighter cantoloupe-y hue. Aroma is juicy fruit and dank, resinous hops. Has a pretty mellow taffy and honey quality. Musty hops and an assertive soil and light caramel malt backbone define the flavor profile of this beer. Perfect amount of bitterness that hits you up front but doesn’t linger.I’m able to draw a little more fruit out of the hops with each passing sip. Lives up to its billing as an exemplary IPA.

From a can. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick, off-white head. Very good lacing. Smells of hops and sweet fruits. Citrusy flavor, with a bit of sugar. This is a great beer!

Sunset orange beer with a beige foam. Ripe, dried exotic fruits on the nose. Medium body. Tart, sweet, fruity, exotic, soft and bitter. Really, really nice. Unique and complex yet refreshing.

Moderately bitter mouthfeel, medium body, high carbonation. Finishes long, quite bitter, lots of citrus, chewy.A very nice IPA. Quite chewy and floral but at the same time has plenty of citrus hops. Quite good.
