Cigar City Brewing
Cigar City Jai Alai IPA
Brewery: Cigar City
Style: IPA - India Pale Ale
Format: 355ml Can
Jai Alai, a game native to the Basque region of Spain, is played on a court called a fronton. Jai Alai players attempt to catch a ball using a curved mitt whilst the ball travels at speeds up to 188mph! Proving they have a sense of humour the Spanish dubbed this game, with its ball travelling at race car speeds, "the merry game." Tampa was once home to a bustling Jai Alai fronton but sadly all that remains of Jai Alai in the Tampa Bay area is this India Pale Ale that we brew in tribute to the merry game. The India Pale Ale style of beer has its roots in the ales sent from England to thirsty British troops in India during the 18th century. Pair Jai Alai India Pale Ale with beef empanadas, deviled crabs and other spicy dishes.

Navel orange sweetness. Easy drinking. Zesty lingering finish. Awesome brew. Hype warranted.
