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.

33cl bottle from Viking Line/Gabriella. Bb 07/14. Clear dark golden, thick white head. Herbal, leafy, some citrusy hops in aroma. Flavor is mainly malty, herbal, lagery grainy almost. Some distant hops. Thin, bitter short finish. 1,40€ /bottle,I have had worse beer much more expensive than this.

33cl. Bottle.
Pours clear orange with white head.
Aroma malt, pils, bread, hay, little sweet, some pine.
Taste malty sweet, strange bitter.
Mouthfeel bad thin.
Not a good IPA.

jookos (2077) - FINLAND - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle from Viking Grace’s taxfree. Coppery clear. Murky old leafy, slight piney hoppy nose with some caramels, light bready English earthy- like. Medium full body, nice mouthfeel. But the flavour- isn’t quite cardboardy, but close. Really murky old. Has a good bitterness balance, but feels just old. BBE jun/14, so I assume this is what it should taste like.

ColaKid (51) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2014
An extremely disappointing beer. It’s not even remotely an IPA and it’s not a good pale ale. It’s shocking his costed me $7 considering what else is out there, step it up Monteiths!

mattyhennessy (289) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2014
Golden colour with a white head. Medium carbonation. The label states ’IPA’ but at just 35 IBU, this is stretching the definition. Citrus and pine aromas typical of cascade hop usage sonera grassy with a smooth malt usage. Easy drinking, but not a good example of the style

k0mpsa (1118) - Järvenpää, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Tap at brewers arms, christchurch. Deep golden color, white head. Aroma is malty, fruity and some hops. Taste is much like british ipas, rich malty, hops and fruity. Easy going.

Very average, definitely not an IPA, or the kind I was expecting. Lacking in hop flavour and depth.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 Monteith valt over het algemeen tegen. Ze weten heus wel te brouwen maar is naar mijn idee gebrouwen voor een groot publiek. Alles is erg vlak van smaak. Niet echt craftbeer te noemen.

Is this even an IPA? A complete lack of typical hop aromas and lacking in flavour. A mild bitterness on the finish but overall a very poor example of an IPA
