Cigar City Brewing, a beacon of brewing excellence from Tampa, Florida, presents its flagship ale, the Jai Alai IPA. This beer is not just a beverage; it's a narrative of tradition, sport, and the sun-kissed state of Florida. The name 'Jai Alai' is borrowed from a fast-paced game native to the Basque region of Spain, where players use a curved mitt, the cesta, to launch a ball in a game of strategy and skill. Just as the game is a blend of agility and strategy, the Jai Alai IPA is a blend of bold citrusy notes balanced with a malt character.

The foundation of this beer is its rich malt base, which is then elevated with the use of six different hop varietals. Post-brewing, the beer tells a story of Florida's sunshine with its tasting notes.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: A radiant amber hue, clear with a frothy white head.
  • Aroma: A captivating scent of tangerine, candied orange peel, and a backdrop of light caramel.
  • Flavour: Dominated by citrusy notes of clementine and Valencia orange, intertwined with subtle caramel undertones. The hops bring forth an assertive bitterness that balances the sweetness.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a smooth finish, the carbonation tickles the palate, making each sip refreshing.

Cigar City Brewing, since its inception, has been a pioneer in the craft beer movement. Their commitment to quality, innovation, and tradition is evident in every brew, and the Jai Alai IPA is no exception. This beer is versatile in its pairings.

In conclusion, the Jai Alai IPA is more than just a drink; it's an ode to traditions, both of the game and of brewing. Whether you're a seasoned IPA lover or someone new to the world of craft beers, this is a brew that promises a delightful experience. So, why the wait?
