Pours dark orange to light amber, one finger creamy white head with lots and lots of bubbles. This is also crystal clear.
The aroma is somewhat grassy, it's not as strong as I was anticipating. Im picking up some floral notes as the beer warms.
The flavor is mostly citrus like grapefruit. I also taste peppery spice and also a bit of cereal/grain which is subtle and more noticeable as the beer warms.
Medium bodied, smooth and crisp. Bitter hop flavors stay with me all the way through with hints of pepper and grain on the finish, leaves a citrusy aftertaste.
Overall this is a very solid year round IPA. It's a beer I've had before on vacation and will continue to purchase when I can.

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.
