Received a bottle in a trade with Keifdog.
Preface: I decided to drink this in a cigar store (which boasts one of the largest walk in humidor's in the state, so lots of cedar smells already) with a cigar (Rocky Patel Sungrown).
Appearance: Poured slightly cloudy copper with a huge head (maybe four fingers) with great retention and lacing.
Smell: Citrusy/piney hop metallic and the more I drink the more I smell the cedar.
Taste: Malty and citrusy with cedar prominent in the after taste. Moderate hopiness. The cedar is not a bad flavor, just different but I don't think the cedar adds to the beer. I've had the regular Jai Alai IPA and given the choice, I would order the regular Jai Alai every time. However, the cedar did add an interesting complexity in the cigar shop which was already cedar smelly in its own right.
Mouthfeel: Moderate to heavy carbonation. Pretty refreshing on a warm day.
Drinkability: Somewhere between a gulper and a sipper. Medium body.
Serving type: bottle
