Brewed By: Cigar City Brewing
Cigar City Brewing is a Tampa Bay, FL based brewery who recently expanded its distribution in 2018, making Jai Alai available in Southern California. This used to be a very sought after IPA, due to its old school respect to the style. Jai Alai is named after a game that is native to the Basque Region of Spain. Players would attempt to use a curved mitt to catch a ball that can travel with speeds up to 188 mph. The beer has citrus and tropical fruit notes in its aroma. At the forefront, there is a citrus bitterness with hints of caramel and a tropical fruit hop kick on the backend.
