I have been waiting for this one for a while, my good friend @Jmscowcroft hooked me up with this one. I'm moving from VT to FL in a while, and this is what I'm looking forward to most!
A - Darkish hazy orange, almost a burnt orange. Has a beautiful creamy white head.
S - Fruitiness at first, then comes a great hop blast. Piney notes and earth notes come through as well.
T - Hops give an initial kick, but balances out well with the malts. Grapefruits definitely come through at end, as well as a piney resin.
M - So incredibly drinkable, could session this IPA all day. Medium body that doesn't fill you up too much.
O - Fantastic, this is what the hype is all about. Really intrigued to now find the White-Oak aged Jai Alai and try that one!

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.
