The Jai Alai is a single IPA, but it's really bordering on imperial at 7.5%. Some websites use 7.5% as the cutoff but there really is no defined line between an IPA and DIPA, it's all up to the brewery. It's not like a bourbon that has to meet exact characteristics to be able to be called a bourbon. Jai Alai is the aforementioned 7.5%, with 70 IBU, again on the high side for an IPA, but go big or go home, right?
Reviewers: Eric Ducote (BR Beer Scene), Brenton Day (The Ale Runner), Chuck Pierce (Me And My Big Mouth), and Buddy Ethridge.
Serving: 12 oz. can.
Appearance: Deep amber, hazy with a nice head.
Aroma: Orange, citrus, not overpoweringly malty. Definitely an IPA but more on the fruity citrus side of the hop spectrum.
Taste: Hoppy, again on the citrus side, and Brenton said it was a smooth drinker.
Mouthfeel: Easy drinking, the relatively high abv is barely noticeable.
Overall: An excellent IPA, available in cans for your next trip to the beach. Just watch out, or the 7.5% will sneak up on you! We all really enjoyed this one with scores consistent from 70-80.
Overall Rating: 75.5
