COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jai Alai India Pale Ale pays tribute to the original extreme sport. Jai Alai, a game native to the Basque region of Spain, is played on a court called a fronton. Jai Alai players attempt to catch a ball using a curved mitt, whilst the ball travels at speeds of up to 188 miles per hour! Proving they have a sense of humor the Spanish dub this game, with its ball traveling at race car speeds, """"the merry game."""" Tampa was once home to a busy Jai Alai fronton but sadly all that remains of Jai Alai in the Tampa Bay area is this India Pale Ale that we brew in tribute to the merry game. The India Pale Ale style of beer has its roots in the strong ales sent from England to thirsty British troops in India during the 18th century. To survive the journey the beers needed more alcohol and more hops (which act as a natural preservative). This “big” brewing practice made India Pale Ale one of the first """"extreme beers"""" and a favorite among the Queens military men in India. Eventually it became a favorite style of the new crop of American brewers seeking more flavor and complexity than mass-market brewers were willing to offer.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2017 Sais pas trop si elle était un peu vieille mais j'ai trouvé le houblon très discret et le malt devenait par le fait meme trop présent....

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2017 Can at home . This is possibly the best IPA I've had, it's not a hazy or a hop bomb. However it's very citrusy and has goes great with a decent meal

Can. Wow, really in your face and aggressive. Very hop forward. Malty. Citrus.

Eine echte Schönheit im Glas, zügige Perlen, derb Schaum und dabei mal überhaupt kein Gushing. Im Trunk fantastisch cremig, süffig, fruchtig, toll. Erst spät leicht bitter-süß. Boa, sehr geiles Teil, die gefährlichen 7,5 Umin merkt man überhaupt nicht. Wenn Ihr das im Supermarkt in den Staaten seht, kauft die große Dosenbox ;-)

Davros (3309) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2017
Pours amber, large lasting head.
Nose shows pine, passion fruit, melon, peach and floral hops along with some underlying sweet-smelling clean malt and a hint of a biscuity note.
Flavours include more peach and along with prominent piny, resinous hops and some grassy notes. Some balancing malt in the background but the focus is definitely on the hops. Finishes slightly metallic-like.

Salian (146) - Sale, Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2017
Draft at Anthony’s pizzeria in Orlando. Fluffy white head in this dry, hoppy and strong IPA that goes well with meat pizza. Citrus flavours, slightly thin mouthfeel, low carbonation.

Jimbo2 (554) - DENMARK - AUG 13, 2017
Decent. Way overrated. Nice aroma, some fruit. Not hugely hoppy. Balanced, but common.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2017 Strong hops with spicy notes. Pairs perfectly with a Publix buffalo chicken tender sub!

3.5
Beergaard (386) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2017
Golden color and nice frothy head. Aroma of sweet citrus, tea, peach. Taste is surprisingly boozy with a harsh grassy note. Some citrus and black tea.
