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.

50cl bottle, BBE 12/2012. Poured clear golden with a lasting white head. Looks great. Aroma has tropical fruits, citrus, pelargonium. Flavor has citrus and blood grape, some grass towards finish. Bitter, citrusy finish. Solid IPA, good balance, great stuff. wow!

500ml Bottle. Aroma is very citrusy (overtly lemon but also grapefruit) and very little else except maybe some maltiness hidden well away in the background - it almost smells of lemon flash floor cleaner!! Appearance is a light golden yellow. Its slightly darker than its stable mate Kipling, but only just. While comparing to kipling its head vannishes even faster than that which is not a good thing in my book. Tastewise the nose transfers well and a slightly malty start is VERY quickly overcome by lemon and then kiwi fruit - loverrrrrrleeee!!!! - and then to s slightly dry bitter finish. All in all its a very very nice pint and if it wasnít for its older sister that I had yesterday, AND its super flat head), maybe it would score a lot higher. But in comparison of the 2, Kipling for once is somewhat superior to Jaipur (even if Jaipur is stronger at 5.9%)

Clear gold pour, white head. Aroma is maltier than I would have expected with a back note of some grassy and citrus hops. Flavor is lighter on the hops, some cereal grains and caramel.

Clean as a whistle this. Modern and direct on the nose but the hops are subtle when compared to the US mod style. Hoppy palate with some mild aniseed bitterness but very much in check and a wonderful definition of "balance". Itís not massive, as per the commercial deScriptor, but Iíd rather drink this all day.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2012 Solid extra pale. Doesnít really leap out at you but I could see it singing a little more on tap. Sweet candy and fruity hop nose. A bit thin and none too balanced. Some nice tropical fruit hops to finish, but again this is more finessed than a WC IPA. Think strong pale and you wonít go too far wrong. Tap rerate - bumped this up as really enjoyed the subtle WC influence, and as expected it did sing on tap.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2012
Bottle. Golden/light amber colour. Hoppy, citrusy, tropical fruitiness, grass. Caramel and biscuity malt in the background. Smooth & balanced bitterness (for a IPA).

Nuffield (3912) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2012
This was all over the place in England (on tap). Clear golden, white head, clinging viciously to the glass. Smooth, gentle, low bitterness. A good swirl brings out a subtle aroma. A little late bitterness. A decent British IPA but just that. (on cask at a pub in London near Fleet Street)

Hazy and orange/amber in color - a little darker than a hefeweizen. Not overly hoppy or bitter, at least not compared to the IPAís here in the states. Maybe this is massive hoppiness for a British beer ;-) The taste is great, though. A combination of hop bitterness, citrus notes (with a hint of sourness), and a light, bready flavor. Between this beer and Kipling, Thornbridge has quickly become my favorite British brewery.

Brenhophead (670) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2012
500mL bottle. Pours light golden with an amazing tropical fruit aroma, you can tell this beer is all about the hops. Taste fresh and the flavour is reminiscent of punk ipa cans IMO. Amazing beer i love it.

This is an reasonable IPA. It had a great nose, but wasnít hoppy enough for me, needed a bit more punch!
