Thank you Miamichael2 for this one.
a: pours a hazy orange color with about an inch of pillowy head that disappears semi fast leaving a good amount of lacing resting atop the beer and around the edge of the glass. As I sip, the lacing sticks to the edges of the glass
s: Citrus, Grapefruit, pine hop bitterness. The Citrus is what hits me the hardest, followed by the pine. A little malt sweetness to balance
t: Fruity sweetness. The bitterness is strong. Unlike in the nose, the piny hop bitterness is the dominant flavor
M: medium bodied beer with good carbonation, very nice
overall, this is a really good brew. I am thankful I had the chance

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.
