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.
