Pours a nice reddish amber in color. Nice quarter inch of frothy head forms on the pour. Leaves very nice, spotty lacing on the entire inside of the glass.
Smell is floral, citrusy hops. Smells very enticing and welcoming.
Plenty of hop goodness in the flavor. Nice bitterness in the flavor.
Medium mouthfeel. Very nice and easy drinking. Would like to have a brewery like Cigar City local to me. They are very creative and solid in everything they do.
Will continue to seek out more of their beers.

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.
