Thornbridge Jaipur IPA
Multi-award-winning Thornbridge is one of the best known and respected young brewery companies in the UK. They produce a varied and innovative range of cask, keg and bottled beers. Whether a diehard CAMRA follower or an advocate of the microbrewery/craft beer revolution, it would be difficult not to recognise the quality inherent in all their beers. One of their stars is Jaipur IPA, a 5.9% ABV delight that would be my choice to accompany many spicy dishes, including a hot curry. On the nose, fragrant notes of orange peel and honey are evident, which lead on to a long-lasting palate bursting with aromatic hoppiness, honey and elderflowers with a hint of dates. Delicious!
