Reviewed from notes. Poured this 12 oz can into a Sam Adams glass. Canned Feb 11 2013 and consumed not long after. The body was bright orange/copper and had yeasty bits in suspension. The off white head left minimal lacing.
The smell was like orange juice and bread dough. Crisp fall leaves. Simple and clean.
The taste was of orange rinds with a light bready sweetness. Juicy and so flavorful - I could drink this all day! There was a nice lingering bitterness that dried out leaving me drinking this one way too fast.
The mouthfeel was a bit slick with an understated carbonation. Medium body. Solid and worthy of the glowing reputation.

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.
