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.

Bottle from TWM Fort Lauderdale via DiarmaidBHK - pours a cloudy orange, strong grassy aroma. Taste is mildly bitter and the palate is dry. Overall, its a boring mild IPA.

Bottle from Total Wine Fort Lauderdale. Pours dark brown with a thin white head. Grassy notes on the nose. Nice malt notes on the tongue with just the right amount of bitterness on the finish. Very quaffable.

Pours a cloudy orange with a small off white head. Aroma is of pine, citrus (mainly orange), a lot of sweet malts, carrel, some pineapple, and maybe some toffee notes. Taste is similar with a lot of sweet malts, pine, orange, caramel, and some faint tropical fruits. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and semi dry, semi bitter yet still sweet, juicy. overall, a tasty and well balanced IPA that borders on DIPA territory.

Botle from Drowland Thanks ! Pours a deep golden orange color with a bunch of floaties that slowly settle, a finger or two of sticky foam... Aromas have good doses of both sweet caramel malts and citrus. On the palate its nicely balanced with touches of pineapple, citrus and pine countered by a light malt sweetness and a bitter finish that quenching but not abrasive. Good IPA hides the fact its in the 7.5% range.

Has some really sweet citrus with a bit of pine. Similar taste, not a lot of bitterness, alright. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bathory (458) - Kverneland, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2012
Bronze hazy colour, with a good white head. Aroma of citrus, pineapple, and some alcohol. Flavour is also much citrus, together with osme caramel, floral notes and raisins. Medium + body with a good, warming mouthfeel. Ill agree that this is more of a double IPA. Overeall a really good one.

12oz bottle - citrus hops aroma. Deep orange color with a nice white head. Big hops flavor that doesnt shy away after you swallow it. Definitely my new favorite Florida beer.
