COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There’s plenty of rich maltiness from this Pale Ale and higher-kilned malt combination. The Cascade and special New Zealand hops create a fruity aroma with a dose of bitterness to drive home the hop flavour. A beer for the IPA aficionado with a distinctly Kiwi style. Perfect for a moment spent catching up with old mates.

Small yellowish head, reasonably stable over hazy orange to golden beer. Sweetish, dull, caramelly nose. Véééééry IPA, indeed. Bit dusty even, old syrup. Dryish, both ever so slightly sweetish as bitterish. In the main taste, the bitterness comes out more in force, slightly metallic, only to fade in the finish and aftertaste. Quite slick, very well-carbonated, medium bodied. IPA - pffff... NZL craftbeer scene has a good reputation, but Monteith’s a letdown, IMO.

GSAP (684) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2016
Een IPA is dit niet, te zoet en weinig spannend. Eigenlijk een lekkere pils plus, mooi oranje, kraagje. Dus niet slecht op een zomer avond, maar niet fantastisch. Gekocht bij AH XL.

KoNrRiI (1147) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016

0.33 bottle.
A clear, gold color with a small, white head of average retention. Aroma of pale malts, caramel, grains, bread, and only a little bit of hops. Taste is malty, sweet, sugary, a tad piney, perhaps also a bit floral but all the hoppy scents are very delicate. A medium body, a creamy texture, and an average carbonation. Finish is long, floral, and slightly more hoppy. Overall the brew is not bad but it does not taste much like an IPA.

arsol (949) - NORWAY - JUL 21, 2016
Klar orangebrun farge med hvitt skum. Veldig svakt humlet, så det er mer maltpreg i lukt og smak. Smak av malt og karamellsødme. Mild bitter avslutning.

Drank with Thierry after the Pokemon hunt 12-7-16. Copper taste, mediocre IPA. Not very special.

TrefwoordPunk (900) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear copper to amber with a small to medium white head and an aroma of grassy hops, toffee, lemon and sweet malts. Totally forgettable beer.

androman (1629) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2016
33cl bottle at home from local supermarket, Maarssen. Nose is malty , fruity, lagerish. Body is clear golden, head is small, tan, frothy, average lasting, good lacing. Aroma is malty, honey, chemical. Medium sweet, light bitter. Finish is medium lasting malty light bittersweet. Light body, slick texture, average carbonation. Easy, refreshing, average malty lagerish, not that bad but nothing to do with IPA, why the hell is this imported to the Netherlands?

rdb84 (535) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2016
Amber golden with stable head. A: sweet malts, light citrus, reminds of Speciale Belge. T: relatively crisp but still none of the hop-heaviness that one would expect for this style. Some fruity elements, mostly citrus, lime, but very faint. Medium bitter development, malty finish. Speciale Belge with fruity elements, but definitely no IPA in the modern sense.
