A nice clear copper color with deep white to tan lasting head.
S so much going on...where to start...Nice in your face fresh hop aroma. fantastic blend of citrus and mango. very floral
T fruit up front pine in the end. fantastic blend of late addition hops. hops and malt sweetness are in complete balance.
M medium light body with a nice malt sweetness
O This beer should be talked about in the same discussion as Heady Topper. Unlike most AIPA, this one is not overly bitter and extremely well balanced. the overly sharp hop bitterness that's associated with ipa's is balanced by the malt sweetness. In all honesty, YES i have had heady topper (family lives not far away i have it a lot) YES i have tried Gandhi bot the brewery is down the street. YES i have had pliney the pine bomb elder (i like that about pliney). If i had to choose of the three, I'm going to take the Jai Alai. it is now available in NYC so I am able to get my hands on it, and for that i am grateful!
