Purchased in DeLand, FL (home of Abbey) while visiting in-laws for Thanksgiving. Poured into pint glass.
A: Pours w/ a thick foamy head, hazy amber color.
S: Hops, not overly strong but crisp and fresh.
T: Not sure what type of hops are used but tastes amazing. Slight fruitiness with a mild lingering bitterness. Extremely tasty.
M: Creamy, medium body.
D: Higher than normal ABV and extremely drinkable.
If you make your way to FL be sure to pick up this beer. Wish we had in TN!

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.
