UPDATED: OCT 16, 2017 12oz. can into a tulip. Beautiful copper pour with a blonde head the quickly dissipates. Smells of tropical fruits followed by earthy tones. Taste as it smells, citrus and pineapple balanced with grassy undertones. Solid beer, I think I'll have another... danielst (416) - AUSTRIA - OCT 8, 2017
Can from Whole Foods. Intense pineapple juice aroma, with a creamy caramel malt backbone that balances out the flavor. Top stuff. DavidSvinth (224) - DENMARK - SEP 30, 2017

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2017 aroma of guava and malted hops. much tropical fruit with a malt 'backbone' - very balanced maltiness to match the tropical fruit and pine.
taste of tropical fruits balanced well with hops and malt, with caramel aftertaste to mellow.
pours beautifully. hard to ask for more visually.
overall it gets you drunk easily. even too easily perhaps.
as someone who prefers very little malt/caramel in his IPA, this is the best exception to the rule I've found thus far.

So good. Sweet caramel malt on the nose with beautiful citrus notes. Same for the taste. Great balance moldovan9807 (468) - Oradea, ROMANIA - SEP 12, 2017
Aroma of orange peel, juicy hops, citrus fruit and light tropical notes. Similar flavor, pretty fresh and hoppy, adding moderate bitterness and balanced by a mild malt sweetness. eRock_2013 (501) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 11, 2017
Finally getting a review posted for this phenomenal beer from Cigar City! Somehow I had not heard of this renowned brewery's flagship IPA before my fellow SC Beer Scout Michael introduced me to it, this is definitely a must-try brew for any beer drinker, whether or not you normally like IPAs! From the second I popped the tab on a fresh can of Jai Alai, I could steadily pick up the strong piney and citrusy hop aroma, impressive intensity on the nose! Poured a deep and mildly hazy pale amber-orange color, with plentiful white foam. The flavor featured a unique citrusy and juicy hop profile, with notes of sweet pineapple and guava, surprisingly not a lot of hop bitterness. Guava is distinctly the most prevalent fruit flavor. There is some hop bitterness forward that doesn't linger on the palate, more than balanced out by generous fruity sweetness. Strong flavor intensity without any booziness, juicy enough and not too bitter that I think this could appeal to those normally wary of IPAs. All around impressive! katerinaniss (11) - GREECE - SEP 5, 2017
