Thanks to Dolfan84 for this one!
A - Dark amber with one finger head.
S - Very much key to east coast style. Citrus, grapefruit, maybe a little orange and pineapple. Very crisp
T - Shining point for me. Citrus up front with a surprising pine element that I couldn't find in the nose. Stick grapefruit and caramel finishes off strong.
M - Medium carbonation, very easy to drink.
O - Another great beer from CCB. Fresh, this is a great IPA and a very drinkable one. Can't wait to try more

Jai Alai has become my favorite beer after trying over 30 different IPAs. The can has a nice design to it and I always appreciate companies that list their alcohol percentage on the label. Haven't been able to find it in bottles, but it doesn't really make too much of a difference to me since I pour it into a glass. Has a great orange color to it, and unbeatable aroma of tangerines and other citrus.
Very drinkable, not too heavy, I find it to be the perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness. The only reason I didn't give it a perfect score is because I've noticed every so often I seem to get a batch where the flavor seems to be off. Regardless, I haven't found a better IPA or beer in general as satisfying as this, especially considering how easy it is to find here now.
