This is a rating for "Twigs and Berries", a Cedar Aged Juniper IPA. Bottle from AskDrTodd - thanks! Aroma is that of gin and beer. There’s also some peppercorn in there. Flavor is a full tongue bitterness, with all kinds of floral notes. It’s like hops and gin together. Finishes clean, with the tongue wanting more. Pours copper with white head.

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. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 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. gkost (1069) - Alaska, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Pours orange. Immediately there is a nice bouquet of citrus and sweet fruits, followed by some sweet caramel and mild spices. Flavor is herbal, citrus and sticky resinous pine nicely rounded out with sweet caramel malts. kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2010
On tap at CCB. Pours a generally clear dark orange amber with a thin white foamy head. Aroma is sweet and floral with notes of ripe fresh fruit, apricots, pine, citrus, grapefruit, floral hops, some faint spice. Juniper is faint, but there. Flavor is also sweet and floral with stronger floral hops notes, stronger notes of juniper, pine, apricots, citrus, grapefruit, some faint spice. Silky smooth mouthfeel with a bitter hoppy finish. Well balanced.

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. MeadMe (1661) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2010
A: Pours a nice amber hue with a nice tall creamy head. Nice retention and lace.
S: Aroma is big on citrus, with mild piny notes, and hints of caramel.
T: Nice citrus and pine lead the way, light juniper, with hints of caramel, and a mild peach like sweetness.
M: Medium in body, nice carbonation.
D: Drinks pretty good, I like plain ol Jai Alai better though. Tsotsi (178) - Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2010
32oz Growler. Pours a dark golden color with a nice white head. Nose is pine, hops, and sweet fragrant scents. Flavors are hops, sweet, woodsy, pine and citrus. Finishes bitter sweet, more bitter though. Nice medium body and the finish last for a while. Nice twist on the original. sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2011
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,
