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.

thirstyrabbit (1849) - Tallinn, - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Pale golden body (the lightest looking IPA I have had) with a medium to small head. Aroma has sweet and fruity hoppiness. Medium sweet hoppy taste with not too much malt. Equally fruity and dry finish. A nice and mellow session IPA - everything is balanced, there is no hop or sugar overkill.

Cask at the Sheffield Tap. Clear golden with a somewhat lacy white head. Aroma is white grape, citrus, honey, caramel apple. Flavor has sweet caramel and honey, white wine, some earth and citrus hops and average bitterness. Medium body, crisp. Good for an English IPA. Key word English.

Gluepot (690) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2017
A refreshing and pleasant Brit take on the west coast IPA. A thin but well laced white head covers a pale straw body. Very visible carbonation. Fresh citrus fruit led by lemon and orange elements work well with a hint of melon and soft sweet malt. I wouldn't call the hop presence massive by North American standards, but punchy and gripping nonetheless.

Benters (52) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2017
Pours light golden, slightly hazy with thin white head and average carbonation. Big citrusy new world hop aromas, some pine and grapefruit. Taste at first is a blend of citrus fruits, hints of honey, some bready malts....but the soft, fruity, malt flavours are soon overtaken by a strong, piney hop bitterness which lingers pleasantly. Carbonation lends a gentle effervescence and helps ensure the hop bitterness isn't overpowering. A fantastic American-style IPA.

JFF (260) - - OCT 7, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2017 Arômes frais et subtils de houblon. Robe dorée un poil trouble. Collet blanc assez tenace. En bouche, grain, caramel, herbal. Ne correspond pas très bien au style.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2017 Very nice golden to dark color. Very balanced aromas. More bitter than other IPAs tasted.

4.2
Firstofthefallen (10) - Middleton Tyas, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2017
Looks clear, very little foam and quite carbonated. Not as fruity as other IPA's, with a strong robust hoppy flavour and a long bitter finish. Light and refreshing.

3.8
Cokemonkey11 (1050) - - SEP 27, 2017
Bottle. Pale golden with a lovely foam. Scent is medium notes of blended hops. Taste is lovely, smooth, fairly light and airy ipa. A bit chemical but not harsh. Finish is dry and a tiny bit sandy. Great IPA.

3.5
ozzatoadisback (200) - ITALY - SEP 20, 2017
Pours slightly darker than golden with a bit of haziness. Average white head, ok retention and nice lacing. Nice aroma shows primarily some kind of 'soft' fruitiness with both citric and sirupy notes (lemon, orange, peach), a delicate resinous/grassy feel and slight spiciness. Taste shows a light cereal or white bread base, soft fruitiness as in the aroma, slight spiciness and a bit of grassy/floral bitterness in the finish. Overall this is pretty sweet for the ipa standard, but it still feels like one. Light bodied with average carbonation, a very easily drinkable beer. Not impressive, but definitely very clean and refreshing. Well made.

victorsampson96 (143) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2017
(330 ml bottle) Jaipur's reputation as a craft beer classic can probably be put down to its style: a traditional British take on the modern American IPA - full of hops, and searingly bitter! Pours a crystal-clear, straw-yellow beer, with vigorous medium carbonation, and a bubbly white head. A citrusy aroma of lemon peel and orange zest sits above a strong, fresh and bready maltbase. Notes include green grape, alcohol and marzipan, while minerals and pine come through towards the finish. Smooth, soft, and bubbly on the palate, with a lingering, lip-smacking bitterness. Whilst Jaipur IPA doesn't live up to the buzz, it's fundamentally a very good beer: it looks lovely, tastes good, and is a textbook example of bullish British brewing.

3.6
jksipa (1007) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2017
Bottle from the LCBO. Pale clear gold under a small lingering white head. Nose has some honey but dominated by citrus, tropical fruit, melon and some light pine. Light sweet honey with a medium bitterness of grapefruit and a slight lemon tartness. Mouth is medium and oily with slightly soft carbonation and a lingering bitter finish. 8/3/7+/3+/15
