On tap at the Dark Lord Day. Sampled before my pallet got eviscerated and my brain turned to jelly.
Nice pour. Hazy yellow with a perfect, wispy white head like whipped cream. Smells of strong citrus hops--orange, grapefruit, and pineapple. Tastes very fresh, very high alpha, lots and lots of delicious fruit. Very hop-heavy, good yeast burst at the end to balance it out somewhat.
I must have liked it an awful lot to have bothered to review it. Nothing genre-defining, but a damn good example of its style.
Serving type: on-tap

Hoping that this review is more than just the pangs of nostalgia, I find that Cigar City is a brewery founded upon an eclectic assortment of beer. Jai Alai is a hop head's paradise.
Straight from the can, a delicious beach beer. When poured into a glass and paired with blackened grouper, it's devine. The head is frothy and has staying power. Not to be ignored, the scent is reminiscent of a floral, bright IPA, but with subtle notes of something sweet and alluring... I've read "caramel", but prefer to think it is the aroma of something brewed especially for fairies at play in the land of dreams and sweets and candy.
