Drank from can in a moment of necessity. Still needed to review.
Obviously I can't see the appearance but it tastes like a 4. Can't get a good smell but likely moderate fragrance with a major hop profile of citrus and flowers to get to another 4. I see a trend. The taste is the first metric that's palpable. Very hop forward with a moderate hop profile but decent smoothness. A little tingle. A dusty grain finish. Drink it if you can but I will likely try from a tap next.

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.
