I love this Derbyshire brewed India Pale Ale. Full of flavour and bursting with hop taste Jaipur is lovely to drink but isn’t a beer to be taken lightly especially at 5.9%. The demand for Jaipur is growing every day and it is easy to see why, which is why I was glad to find it in Ye Olde Watling near Mansion House in London, a fantastic pub with a great selection of beers of which the light, golden, IPA, Jaipur was easily the most memorable!

“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”

In summer 2005 Thornbridge’s Jaipur took top prize at the Sheffield Beer Festival – only two months after it was first brewed. Now with over 60 awards, Jaipur is arguably the most successful beer in the UK; a record that vindicates the Thornbridge team’s commitment to their first ale in the face of initial indifference” […] “At 5.9% it was strong, and big on flavour – one of a kind at that time. Most people didn’t give us much of a chance and the market wasn’t receptive. They said they would take it – but only if we brewed it at 4.5%,” says Simon.”
