Poured with a clear copper body and a 1 finger, rocky head. Great appearance.
Aroma was excellent. Very bright and crisp. Light maltiness that seemed to balance out the floral, citrusy and tropical aromas of the beer. Mild caramel and biscuit aromas.
Taste was what you hope for out of an IPA. Resinous, citrus and floral hop flavors up front followed by a light maltyness and slight caramel and biscuit. Hop flavors continued throughout and the finish had a mellow bitterness that didn't destroy your tongue. Slightly piney in the finish.
Mouthfeel was medium/light body, medium carb and a crisp finish.
Outstanding beer. Anytime I'm near the east coast I make sure to get as much as this as I'm able to bring home with me. Excellent IPA.

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.
