JAIPUR, an English style IPA that works better as a farmhouse ale. If memory (and a little creative googling to back up my memory) serves me an English style IPA should be pretty high in alcohol and rocking the world in malts. The malt is there but the alcohol at a paltry 5.9% seems weak for an IPA although the flavor is a wicked whiskey barrel boozy head-dizzier that makes you feel like a hangover is imminent.

Theres no acidity here, no pleasant balance of citrus and pine, nothing to indicate I'm drinking an IPA. Like I eluded to earlier this has more qualities of a farmhouse ale mislabeled as an IPA.

Not a huge fan, if you like Fantome Saison or Four Play (both farmhouse ales) you wont mind taking a dip into this and telling all your friends how you're expanding your horizons. Outside of that this is easily forgettable, not "bad" but IPA fans wont be pleased.

Cheers
