Cigar City, located in Tampa, pays homage to an old game native to the Basque region of France, known as "Jai Alai", with this delicious brew. In this game, players would attempt to catch a ball using a curved mitt on a court called a 'fronton', while the ball traveled at speeds up to 188mph. The Tampa area used to be home to bustling Jai Alai fronton, but sadly this court is no longer around.
The beer 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. If consider yourself a fan of IPAs, this is a must try beer.
