Got a 6pack from a ratebeer member who filled up his trunk and drove to us poor peeps in MS to let us have a taste of real beer. This was bottled on dec 8th, I doubt I'll ever get it fresher around here.
Pours a nice slightly cloudy amber, beautiful head, laces perfectly
Smells sweet but not a floral sweet, more like a carmelly sweetness, very promising, I get a hint of spices too, but it's faint.
tastes like it smells, carmel, hops hops and hops, slightly dry finish. I usually go for more floral ipa's but this one is delicious, I love the hint of carmel/malt. Really wish this was readily available anywhere remotely close

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.
