4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Hazy orange ale with a huge, frothy, white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma blows me away – freshly cut firewood, tropical fruit medley, spruce and nectarine. I didn’t think I could like the aroma of any other treatment of Jai Alai more than that of the Humidor IPA but now I do. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Bittersweet, fruity, spicy flavor and finish. World class beer!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Ginger Man. Very muddy hazy pour. The nose is quite laden with vanilla laden with back notes of mango and passionfruit. Rich palate with a fairly thick body as well. It’s lightly sweet but not all that hoppy. Sweet fruity hop aromatics but the bitterness is so subdued and unresinous that it almost comes across as a fruit beer. However - as it warms up this beer really changes. The hoppiness starts to pick up but it comes across a little bit catty. I can’t say I’m a huge fan of this one - but it’s definitely one of a kind.
