COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available bottled.
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.

Gramoit (377) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2012
Top class drop this! Pours Yellow (lighter colour than expected) with a finger head that recedes quickly into a thin lacing. Mostly citrus hops on the nose. Taste is brilliant. very hoppy with some lingering bitterness, but not too bitter, and a little sweetness of honey that I thought was a great touch. I wish I bought more than one of these!

bluevegie (3067) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2012
Clear golden body with lasting head. Nose is sweet and fruity with a bit of grass. Taste is smooth, well carbonated, good length and although nothing really stood out for me in this beer it was easily enjoyable and drinkable.

visionthing (3615) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2012
50cl bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours clear golden with a nice off-white head. Lovely hoppy and fruit smell from the moment it is poured in the glass. Hoppy aroma with citrus, tropical fruits, pine, malt, caramel and a hint of spices. Sweet and fruity with a citric and bitter finish. Very well balanced. The caramelly sweetness fades into a grapefruity bitterness. Tasty and refreshing IPA with more flavour than expected. Aftertaste of grapefruit with a lasting bitterness. Very nice IPA!

ComradeK (1070) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy pale gold, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Toffee and fresh white bread serve as a base for strong tropical fruit and pine hops aromas, with pineapple and honeydew melon especially prominent. An initial touch of pine is overcome by potent grapefruit and pineapple hops flavours. These last into the mid-palate, where they are joined by a touch of mango and some white bread and caramel malt notes. Mango and melon hops notes bring a fruitier touch to the finish, and there is a lingering pine aftertaste. I have wanted to try this beer for quite a while, and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. A nice, razor-sharp IPA, with an enjoyable breadth of flavour.

Very nice IPA. Sweet with caramel notes and a lot of hops. The bitterness stays in your mouth. Very complex beer.

tfredvik (1417) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2012
Light golden body that is unusually clear for a craft beer. The large, fairly creamy off-white head is both long-lived and sticks to the glass. Lovely and strong aroma with a good deal of sweet fruits, even though the tropical feel is a bit fainter than in many IPAs. Citrus, mainly grapefruit, pineapple and a grassy almost herby feel. The taste is light sweet with a moderate bitter rather long-lasting finish. The label promises a "crescendo of massive hoppiness", but that must be by British standards: the Jaipur is rather mellow and gentle. Quite strong flavours with grapefruits up front, the succulent tropical fruits are almost not there at all. Instead the grassy notes in the aroma are even more pronounced, and a pleasant touch of caramel makes the flavour profile very well balanced. Quite dry texture, soft to medium carbonation and medium body. A very nice and refreshing IPA with a moderate bitterness that should fit non-hopheads as well.
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 4 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]
