Being from New England (w/ lots of great micro-brews), my brother proudly took me to Cigar City Brewing in Tampa Florida. And I must say I was very impressed with both the quality and the number of excellent craft-brews on tap. The organization is very well run, and I fully expect to find their beers in the New England region in the near future ( I can see them expanding nationally).
I started with a taster rack of Jai Alai (IPA), Resonator Double Bock, El Lector English Style Dark Ale, and the Puppy Breath Porter. All were excellent.
Jail Alai is a West Coast style IPA. Having recently home brewed something similar, I'm definitely fond of this style of beer.
Had theJai Alai in a small 4oz tasting glass.
translucent yellow, with whitish head.
sublte citrus hoppy notes. guessing it was dry hopped, but not aggressively so.
wonderful taste. Love the citrus flavor of the hops. Hoppy, but not aggressively so. Very refined IPA. What I've noticed in many IPA's is a slight metal after taste. Not so with this beer.
lighter bodied beer, appropriate for an IPA
Excellent IPA. Put it up there with Racer 5, one of my favorites. If you like IPA's definitely try this beer.
Serving type: on-tap
