Yellow color. Hoppy. Bit. Sound balance, but not my cup of tea.

Writing as i drink.

Poured a cloudy, very pale colour with a big fluffy head. Didn't hang around for long. Some lacing.

Nose is lots of citrus, floral and hoppy - nice.

Palate has a distinct floral character, with tropical fruit, pineapple and good good bitterness.

Mouth is ok but could be fuller for me.

Overall a very well-made beer. Bursting with flavour and hoppiness, distinctive and nice looking.

Highly recommended.

With 200 reviews on Jaipur, I can't add much.
Jaipur also has been reviewed in Roger Protz' CAMRA classic "300 Beers To Try Before You Die!" and also in the "1001" book. I have Had Jaipur three times and increased my initial rating slightly based on smell and taste.
Jaipur went very well with Indian food and southeast Asian food.
Versatile and I will have it again.

Complex hop aroma with hints of orange, white pepper, and sage. Herbal and perfumey with floral honey notes. Grassy and bright. Somewhat sweet. Very lightly bready. Balanced towards hops in the nose with complimentary fruity yeast esters.

Pours somewhat hazy light yellow. Almost wit beer in color. Small white head with good lacing.

Rush of fruit, oranges and apricots. Thoroughly bitter with light malt character. A hint of honey sweetness. Crisp and clean. Very dry. Delicate finish with lingering honey and hop bitterness.

Medium light body with medium low carbonation. Sticky hop resin lingers on and on.

Bridging the gap between English and American IPA.
