Entering old rates. Draft @ CCB. Profile similaire à la Jai Alai, pas mal de fruits exotiques, le tout est complété par l’usage de baies de genièvre. Houblon fruité restant doux avec une amertume en retrait, Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 24, 2010
On tap at CCB pouring crystal clear copper with gold edges and off white head. The aroma begins sweet with citrus and spicy hops and then heads into mild levels of herbaliness and flower pedals. The taste is essential the new improved Jai Alai with its deliciously executed hop bill of rich citrus hop flavor, spicy hop flavor and then building into resiny piney hop bitterness. Well off in the background are sort of floral and herbal like notes. jredmond (8288) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 30, 2010

On draft at CCB Tasting Room Reopening. Pours clear gold with a white head. Nose is peppercorn, malt, caramel, slight citrus, and pine. Flavor is similar with peppercorn throughout and lingering hops. Finishes with hops and pepper. Interesting twist on Jai Alai. jbruner (4747) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Part of the IPA day celebration at CCB. Pours a darker hazy orange on tap with a thin white head and little to no lacing. Aroma of hops, pine, and juniper berries. Taste is spicy and hoppy at the same time; the hops and juniper blend well to create a pretty clean mouth and smooth taste. It’s good, and the combo works well, kind of like a gin IPA.

Tap at Rattle n Hum: Orange pour with good clarity and an off white film of head. Unique spicy herbal aroma. Apparent juniper and grapefruit citruses. Oily and hoppy body with plenty of aggressive citruses and herbal juniper spiciness. Nice and dry with just enough malt back.

growler shared by SOLAN. Piney juniper on the nose with cedar and pine resin. Pours pale golden with a thin white head. Big juniper flavor, pine resins, cedar with heavy citrus notes.
