ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - JUN 24, 2012
on cask at the Euston tap in London. A smooth easy drinking IPA. pours a amber color with a frithy head. bread and malt in the nose with a kicj of straw and lemon zest.. very balanced with enough sweet , malty notes to counter the citrusy hops. very smooth and easy drinking - deceptive for a 6% alcohol beer.

Chiswick (159) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2011
yellow orange colour, clear liquid, pours a white head. aromas work around bread, malt, dough, fruit, herbs and spices. there is a sweet wash in the taste with a gentle bitter sour escort. a dry mouthfeel with a light body builds the palate. this compliments the entirety nicely. nothing special, but a good standard, light IPA to go with food.

Cask (handpull) Poet & Castle, Derbyshire. Stefano at Thornbridge told me that this was an experiment to see if they could replicate Jaipur using English hops and they had to use a shed load of them to get even remotely close. Had almost the right amount of zing compared to the usual, I doubt that many punters would spot a great deal of difference. Which proves Stefano’s point.

Gravity cask at the Peterborough beer festival in august. I tried this alongside the regular Jaipur and found it virtually identical. Good but over-hyped IMO.
