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.

blackradioboy (106) - SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2015
Bottle from Waitrose (£2.55). Pale lemon colour. Looking at my previous notes (tap and bottle) Jaipur is a bit hit and miss. It can be great, but this bottle isn't. Tropical, metallic and a bit flat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Neorej80 (346) - - JUL 18, 2015
Strong pine and grassy like hop aroma with citrus and peaches. Very clear yellow colour with a white head. Looks a bit watery, but the strong taste makes it all up! Sweet piney hops with plums, peaches and a bit of caramel and lots of maltflavours. Little bitter and caramel-sweet aftertaste.

Hippoman (110) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Cask from The Sycamore, Birch Vale, Derbyshire, £3.80/pint. Pours light amber with thick white head. Slow to clear but looked good in the end. Lots of orange and grapefruit in the nose. Smooth drinking and citrus stays strong in the taste but at 5.9 ABV but the alcohol is a little overpowering of the flavour before a long, bitter finish. I enjoyed the first half of the pint more than the second. Decent golden IPA though.

WAh! une ipa comme je les aime une belle couleur, un arome très prononcé de houblon sur des notes de caramel/fruit une belle longueur, un excellent souvenir!

serjaymz (124) - Istanbul, TURKEY - JUL 6, 2015
06.07.2015 The Brickmakers Viyana, musluk. Pilsnerlerden bile açık sarı ve saydam. Köpük beyaz. Kalıcılığı düşük. Koku narenciye, Tropik meyve ancak çok vurucu değil. Ipa'ya Özgü şerbetçiotu kokuları belirgin. Damakta başta yumuşak, kolay içimli ve meyvemsi ancak ardından yavaş yavaş yükselen ve damağı saran bir şerbetçiotu acılığı artarak uzun süre kalıyor.. Bu birayı özel kılan en önemli etken.. Derinlik olmasa da kalıcılık ve zamanla artması farklı bir özellik vermiş.,

Cask at Spinning Jenny, Manchester Airport. Golden with a creamy white head. Citrus aroma, bitter lemon flavour with an underlying cereal taste. Thick, syrupy mouth feel. Excellent

Bloody fantastic. Stronger than my first girlfriend. Too strong to drink in the quantities I would like. Lovely hoppy IPA with tons of taste.
