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.

Bottle. Golden amber, off white, lasting head. Intense and rich floral hoppy aroma with hints of apricot, citrus and some pine. Pleasant, well marked bitterness. A very nice IPA, challenging the best from the USofA.

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.

(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.

jksipa (992) - 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

lesifflebiere (1928) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 8, 2017
Une liqueur jaune, à la généreuse mousse blanche, et un nez à la fois sucré et fruité, vraiment très axé, "aromatiquement" parlant, sur le houblon, ou plutôt les (nombreux) houblons. Beaucoup de mangue, de pamplemousse, autres tentations tropicales. La bouche est comme prévu, bien "américaine" dans son approche, avec une amertume certes costaude, mais les flaveurs de la plante verte sont dominantes. Une IPA classique, mais indubitablement bien faite, juteuse et ensoleillée , complexe et délicieuse.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2017 Amber with a thin, vanishing head. Bottle bought at Asda, Ferring on a rainy Sunday. There's something unusual going on here, a spice I can't quite place; cloves or cardamom? It's dry and crisp, quite pleasant, but what is that flavour?

0.5L on tap at The Abbey, Shrewsbury. May have been poured a tad too cold as some of the complexity I associate with this lovely beer has been lost. Still, a fine IPA.

venom666 (1050) - Elche, Alicante, SPAIN - AUG 26, 2017
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with medium white head. Aroma is floral, citrusy and grapefruity, with a solid bready back-end. Taste has orange, grapefruit, grass, flowers and yeast, with a moderate bitter aftertaste.

ThreeCats (983) - ISRAEL - AUG 23, 2017
Very pale, almost straw color, with a nice head. Aroma flowery, earthy, and dank. Taste has good bitterness and some fruity characteristics, passionfruit and grapefruit rind. Very nice English IPA.

puredelusion (417) - Lviv, UKRAINE - AUG 22, 2017
0.5 on tap. Pours clear golden color with medium white head. Light aroma of fruits. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter. Finish is medium long, soft, mild hoppy. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Orange_times (305) - UKRAINE - AUG 22, 2017
On tap. Pours in golden yellow with small white head, clear liquid. Aroma of spruce, grapefruit, honey. Higly bitter, medium sweet, no sourness. Medium body, average carbonation, long lasting bitter and honey aftertaste, very refreshing.
