Cigar City Brewing Jai Alai
What the brewers say
"Citrusy, tropical, and balanced American IPA brewed with six hop varietals and dry-hopped with Simcoe."
What our panel thought
"Lovely, bright, hop aroma—blood orange, mango—with wort-like sweet caramel. Unsweetened-orange-juicy—zesty, pithy flavor—with a balancing caramel note that smacks into a medium-high wave of bitterness. It sticks a bit, but you go back for that orange punch and malty hug."
What our editors thought
"Lightly toasted bread, soft tropical citrus on the nose. The sip offers light sweetness to amplify the fruitier flavors, reined in by an equally pitched bitterness. Balances on the bigger side."
