On tap at Fruit of the Room. Maybe my second favorite incarnation of this beer. The taste is your traditional jai alai with fruity peach, grapefruit, and oak smothered on top.....

Draft at the Cigar City taproom. Pours a clear, dark, reddish-amber hue with an off-white head of smooth, moderate foam. Broken rings and splotches of lacing mark the glass. The nose is so freakin inviting, showing a big, juicy, super-fresh peach overtone amidst bright citrus blossom and grapefruit hops. Underlying malts suggest toast and biscuit, bringing some aromatic balance, yet they remain supporting cast members to the real stars shows of the show, which are the peach and citrus hops. Flavors are spot on, again very bright and citrusy, showing bold grapefruit bitterness with a soothing quash of ripe peach. Orange notes also come through. Unlike the early batches of Jai Alai, which were more malt driven, the recipe tweaks have resulted in a slightly drier, lighter malt feel, resembling toasty, unsweetened bread rather than heavier biscuit and caramel. The same is true in this version, and it really allows the hops and the peach to shine. Substantial in body, significantly more so than medium, I would say, the palate sports an even-keeled balanced and moderate carbonation. Peach serves to shorten the length of the bitter hop finish. Delicious stuff.

growler shared by Todd S. Sweet peaches and piney hops on the nose, very resinous. Pours orange amber with a thin white head. I normally don’t like peaches, but blended with the hops in Jai Alai its very nice, piney grapefruit with tropical fruits and peaches. Very drinkable.

Growler brought up by Todd from CC for the drowland organized tasting at Proof. Orange gold pour w/ thin white head. Grass, citrus and pine in the aroma. Tastes like the Jai Alai with a rich tropical peach vibe in the background. Came off kind of minty somehow also. Good.

7/23/10. Thanks to AskDrTodd for the growler brought up to Tally! Delicious fruity tropical and citrus aroma with just a hint of fresh peach on top of it. The flavor is much the same but with a good IPA bitter kick. Nice!

Love this beer, what better combination could i ask for. The punch of citrus hops to the nose is amazing. It has a great mouth feel and just the right amount of bitterness with that great peach flavor coming through about mid palate. Hands down probably one of my favorite ipa’s out there.

On tap at the brewery for the Double Barrel Aged Zukhov release. I walked in and a beer friend of mine, Brian, handed me a glass with just a little bit of beer left in it. I go "What’s this?" he goes, "The peach IPA, they just ran out, so taste it if you want." It was absolutely delightful. Fruity with a good balance of hops and earthy tones. I only wish I could have tasted more of it.

On draft at the brewery on 7/19/2010. Pours cloudy brown with a red tint and a finger-tall off-white head. Aroma is loads of fresh peaches and hops...smells delicious. Flavor is nice dry bitter hops with a very obvious influx of peaches. Medium bodied. This is awesome...way better than the regular Jai-Alai in my opinion.
