COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, keg & bottle; Regular.

A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.

inbirraveritas (1505) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 4, 2016
Bottled, 500 ml. Clear yellow golden one with a medium sized broad pored white head on it, which leaves a thin film behind. Citrussy nose and aroma escorted by bread, honey, florals, resin... slick mouthfeel. Bittersweet, somewhat warming, lingering grapefruity finish. Nice.

Rask0lnikov (751) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 3, 2016
On tap at Pudel. Golden yellow colour. Medium white head. Slightly fruity, citrussy aroma. Citrussy at first. Bitterness. Orangecore. Slight fruitiness. Bitter finish. Bitterness also in the aftertaste. Rather light bodied, medium carbonated, quite drinkable IPA. Too much bitterness thow.

Evilkniamhel (554) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 3, 2016
From bottle at the auld hoose. Pours hazy gold. Aromas of grass, mangos, loads of hops. Taste is fresh hops, smooth, fruity and a dry finish.

ipabr (152) - Somerset, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2016
Smells like lager, looks like lager. Taste has some yeast funk that makes up most of the flavour. Burp is like Iíve been drinking lager. Rubbish ale, great lager.

jnsrgnt (20) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016
Cask pint in a Wetherspoons outlet, not my first Jaipur nor my first Wetherspoons. Doesnít do as much as it did in its heyday - watery, taste doesnít do as much or last as long as it used to. Itís frustrating, as this stuff used to be fantastic. Itís still very decent though - peaches and oranges, super refreshing, slips down without you noticing - just a different beer to the one that blew me away in 2010/11.

Erzengel (7759) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2016
On cask @ The Snowdrop, Lewes. Smooth and nice floral beginning. Great floral hops, intense and round smooth malt. Stage hops are piney and slightly sticky, very round and fascinating! Great stuff!!

Vells (1607) - RÓga, Latvija, LATVIA - MAY 8, 2016
Simple, easy drinkable, but bit too light even only for refreshing purposes. Decent maltiness, some honeish herbal aspect, citrus, grapefruit. Light sweet with moderate to light bitterness. Decent

Bijl (230) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2016
Goudgeel ongefilterd troebele Engelse IPA. Je ziet mooi wat substantie zweven in het glas....prachtig. Snel verdwijnende witte schuimkraag. In de aroma in eerste instantie voornamelijk citrus/grapefruit. Daarna floraal en tropisch. Na opwarming moutig, aards en grassig. De smaak brengt limoen, citrusy, mout en hooi. Een redelijke bitter die blijft maar niet overmatig is. Pijnboom in de afdronk en droog. Aardig zacht mondgevoel, medium koolzuur, medium body. Dit is niet een klap voor je kop IPA maar een mooie subtiele Engelse India Pale Ale!

A beautiful beer in term of foam and carbonation. Not too bitter, banana taste et hoppiness appearing along the drinking experience. A gold plated beer...

Pint before my flight at Gatwick. Good hop aroma that really came through on cask. Definitely an above average pint on cask, although itís much fairer to compare it against an English bitter than an American IPA.
