A: Poured can into a .5 liter glass. Dark golden, copper color with 1 finger off white head with considerable lacing. Hangs around until the end.
S: Unlike almost all the other reviews that I've read, I don't smell citrus as the dominating scent. For me, it is vanilla, oaky, bourbon. Very nice.
T: Smooth vanilla taste with hints of bourbon.
M: Very nice overall mouthfeel. Bitterness is dominant as you would expect, but 4 parts of the tongue are represented evenly.
O: Got a 4 pack from my in-laws from a trip they took down to Clearwater. They raved about the brewery and how much I would love it with its selection and shuffleboard table. Really enjoyed this beer, and look forward to trying more from Cigar City in the future,

This beer is about the only reason I would go back to Florida...
I know the true characteristic of a beer is realized after it has been decanted but Jai Alai is great straight out of the can. Refreshing and well balanced hop profile with a clean crisp finish. Does not linger on the tongue and only leaves you wanting to go back for another sip. Even when poured the beer exhibits a beautiful color and wonderful citrus (orange peel) aroma. A great tight head that lingers on the edge of the class tells me that someone has taken their time to get it right.
