Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a clear amber orange with a near white head that dissipates nearly completely with a slight lace. Aroma has notes of citrus, bitter pineapple with a hint of sweet lychee. Flavor starts with more sweet lychee but finishes with bitter pineapple and citrus.

On draft at CCB. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Nose is sweet fruit, tropical fruit, citrus, spice, and grapefruit hops. Flavor is similar with lots of tropical fruit flavors combined with the standard Jai Alai sweetness. Very enjoyable and drinkable on a hot day like Hunahpu Day.

Ibrew2or3 (8207) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Poured up on tap at CCB with clear copper body and white head. The aroma seems like spicy tropical fruit, mango and malt sweetened citrus hops. The taste offers up rich tropical notes with sort of a spicy tropical fruitiness that I canít put my finger on, mango, pineapple, malt sweetened grapefruit and an interesting yet faint level of floweriness that seems to be nuanced by citrus-tropical fruit-sweetened perfume notes.

steelcitybrew (454) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2011
pours a burnt orange with a nice white head. lots of lacing. nose is orange and sweet tropical fruits. taste is more pine than pineapple but its got a bit of both. on the sweeter side of the ipa spectrem. palate not as good as cigar city ipas are used to. didnít go down as smooth as a good ipa should. overall still a really decent pilot beer.

Pours dark orange. Nose is pine and citrus hops melded with subtle hints of tropical fruit. Flavor is mostly straight up Jai Alai with very VERY back end notes of pineapple. I have no idea what a Lychee is, but I think it may have contributed to the unripe grape-y notes in the end.
