Served from a can to a snifter glass. Cigar City's Jai Alai a crisp and refreshing IPA. It has a nice dark orange color. You can smell the tropical aromas jump out at you as you begin to take a sip. Smells of grapefruit and pineapple jump at you. The initial citrus flavors invade your pallet with a crisp hoppy finish towards the end. The mouthful is crisp and refreshing with just the right amount of hops, the bitterness doesn't linger in the back of the pallet. Truly another delicious beer from Cigar City.

From a can that was canned 12/13/13. Poured into a Samual smith pin glass
A: orange deep color. Lots a foam head and lots of lacing. Good head retention too.
S: nice citrus overtones of the hops. Kind of lemonish more than grapefruit to me. Not overpowering
M: full feel, hop thickness.
T: Soild taste. Lots of hops but not overpowering. To me very much like a west Coast of the US as opposed to the west coast of Florida. Finish of the same citrus you smelled initially.
Overall a very Soild IPA. Very Soild as the flag bearer IPA of the brewery. Drinkable too, not exactly a session beer but ou can easily drink a few and on a warm day it would do nicely as opposed to some Heavier IPA. Like it a great deal and good for the price point.
