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.

Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana, vaahto on keskikokoinen ja pitsiä jättävä. Haju on hyvin sitruksinen, jota tukee pähkinä, ruoho, havu ja on siinä vielä hieman mausteista yrttiä. Maku on yrttinen, sitruksinen, ruohoa, voileipäkeksiä ja hieman sekä havua että puuta. Hyvin pilsmäinen maku. Suutuntuma on vahvasti humaloitu ja kuiva. Humalointi tuntuu lähes jo kitkeränä, mutta runko juuri ja juuri tukee sitä. Ihan hyvä ja hyvin pilsmäinen IPA, joka on kuiva ja raikas. Runko tosiaan meinaa jäädä vähän ohueksi humalointiin nähden.

Clear golden pour with a small creamy head. Floralness and citrus dominates aroma. Some grapefruit also. Grapefruit and citrus in taste also, but citrus is relatively Subdued. Some melon and passionfruits. Body is light to medium with a smooth mouthfeel and mesium carbonation.

Pleasant enough but I was expecting more based on what I’d heard...my bottle poured an sparkling bright yellow - quite suprisingly light. Aromas were balanced between gentle cereals and grassy/floral hops. Taste was mild sweetness overbalanced by punchy sharp bitterness. A bit chalky.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2011 A lovely IPA. Really sessionable. Good hop measure; fruits, citrus and eldeflower. The balance is good however a little sharp and dry in the finish. Drinkability is good and mouth feel is moderate Consumed at Rake on tap and also bottle conditined at home, 19th March 2010. 3.7 Update 10th March 2011. My Brewery Tap. Bottle condition. Damn this is GOOOD White head, golden blonde stunner, aroma is citrus, baked bread, floral hos, zingy lemon, taste is stunning, grapefruit, lemons, honey, tropics, grass, gorgeous fanatical hop-bite, rolls off your tongue like sweet honey, fresh at the brewery they must hate to see this leave! A perfect beer to represent an empire.

Bottle sample. Slightly hazy yellow color with a small white head. Huge fruity nose - tropical, citrus and some pines. Clean malt flavor with rich hop flavors of NZ hops and earth and med-hi bitterness. Long hoppy finish, medium body and very good.

Enligt legenden kan man få en glimt av den gudomliga nåden om man stirrar tillräckligt djupt i det här ölet. Om det är berusningen eller smaken eller något som bara inte går att sätta fingret på, än mindre förklena till trivial prosa, det är en fråga som bara kan nuddas av känslan men aldrig infångas av förnuftet. Var tacksamma för det, kära ni, för i samma stund något stort kan förklaras bryts förtrollningen. Thornbridge Jaipur - jag förstår inte vad det är ni gör men jag gillar’t.
