Back in January, I had the pleasure to tell you all that Tampa, Florida's Cigar City Brewing was coming to our market. Today, I can happily say that their Jai Alai IPA is in the capitol city. The beer's name pay tribute the Basque game where players attempt to catch a ball using a curved mitt, whilst the ball travels at speeds of up to 188 miles per hour.
Pours copper in color with notes of citrus and tropical fruit in the aroma. Flavor has upfront citrus bitterness with a hint of caramel and citrus and tropical fruit hop notes in the finish.
I know that Dick n' Dixie's has some Jai Alai and that bars and restaurants (including Squatters/Wasatch) will be picking it up very soon as well.
