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.

Beeronaut (176) - Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2010
Iíve had this beer a few times in both bottle formats (conditioned and pasteurized) and also on draught. Here though, itís in the new bottling, micro-filtered. After ending up a little bit dissapointed by the new Halcyon, I thought it prudent to try the Jaipur. But I can safely say that this little beautí is on form! Pours out looking very lively and fizzy (oh no! I thought, not again) aroma is excellent, loads of floral, perfumed aromas, very unique to Jaipur, thereís almost a disinfectant note to the hops/resin with Jaipur, a but like potpourri. A good bit of spicy pine, orange peel, lemon zest and a little bit of honeyed, caramel malt. Flavour is more of the same, with more emphasis on sweeter notes balancing all the hoppy, citrus goodness. It has an almost boiled sweet like feel to it in the back ground. Some rhubarb tartness, and finlly grapefruit/citrus to finish. Thankfully the fizz seen on pouring turned out to be superb bottle conditioning, making the beer very creamy with a good solid mid-bodied feel to it. Totally delightful, and quite possibly the best bottling Iíve tasted so far.

sm89walt (1754) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2010
Cask - Planet Thanet Festival 2010, Margate. After countless times having missed this and all the hype, I made certain to get in on it this time around! It poured a clear, golden orange with a medium frothy white head. Big and citrussy hops, heaps of orange peel with a real sweet and boozy toffee malt backdrop. Bags of citric and floral hops underlined by a lovely sweetness on the tongue. Medium in body with low carbonation, an oily mouthfeel and a lingering earthy, piney finish.

TheAlum (5672) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2010
Poured on cask at The Maproom (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice golden amber, good jaze, moderate bright white natural head that sticks around a good level and laces ok. Aromas are a nice delicate hoppy brew, florals, citrus, pine, and a more dominant funky grass, with pale and carmel beneath. Initial is hoppy, good citrus hop with grapefruit and lemon with a touch of grassy hop, pale and caramel malts beneath, smooth and very drinkable. The hops have a great aroma and flavor character, with smaller bitterness. Finish is citrusy, lemon and light bitterness. Nice.

Cask at the Cask Pub & Kitchen on 26th March 2010. Clear gold with a white head. Viciously hoppy with grapefruit notes. Rich and intense blend of floral and grassy hop. Excellent hoppy aftertaste and increasingly dry bitter finish.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2010 Bottle at pre-ZBF 2010. Pale hazy yellow, big head, massive lacing. Aroma of sea salt and pepper. Taste is malty, slightly sweet, bitter finish. Very drinkable. 3.5 Second try, sample from the Connecticut process. Aroma of freshly mown grass, taste has better balance. Extremely tasty. 4.0
