May be the best beer I've had to date. Really hits a great after flavor of citrus/grapefruit . I just enjoy it!

I was able to pick up some 2 week old Jai Alai while I was passing through Florida. This beer was awesome.

Bought a case of 12 oz. cans in the summer of 2014 in Allentown, Pa. Illegible canning date. Very good but seemed to have a "chemical like" aftertaste that I didn't like. Will try again at next opportunity to rate again.

Just a great IPA. Cigar City comes through again with another great beer. Thin head, full bodied and tropical flavor gives the bitter hops a unique twist throughout the tounge.
