Beer –                 Jaipur

Alcohol –          5.9%

Origin –             Bakewell, Derbyshire

Style –               IPA

Season –          Summer

I’m not going to beat around the bush with this beer; this is one of my favourite beers of all time, and I am going to lavish it with all the pomp and ceremony it deserves;

What a beer! A beautifuly IPA, with a clean white head, and a wonderful golden colouring.

Bags of Fruit, and floral notes on the nose, fruity watermelon on the palate.

With it’s higher alcohol content than a lot of golden IPA’s Jaipur is able to deliver intense fruity flavours whilst remaining easy drinking and this makes it, dare I say it a dangerous session ale.

Hence, why people use the term ‘Jaipured’ to describe being intoxicated off a few of these, and Jaipoorly to describe how they feel the next day!

A firm favourite of mine and if you haven’t tried it already I would suggest you get on it!

Zingy Lemony on the Tongue with a honey undertone, leading to a bitter-sweet finish.

American IPA’s tend to have a very floral citrusy backbone, and this is no exception. A great beer for a Summers night, full of flavour.
