Brewer: Cigar City Brewing
Florida's Cigar City embraces the region's Latin roots with Jai Alai. Its flagship IPA is named after the exotic sport where players whip a small ball at triple-digit speeds with an elaborate curved mitt. The beer features bright orange, melon, and grapefruit flavors which jump out of the understated aluminum can. There's a bready malt character with a touch of caramel to balance the hopping. We flip the cans to check the packaging date on the bottom. If it's more than a month old, wait for a fresh shipment to fully appreciate the delicate hop character.
