Hailing from the tradition of 18th Century IPAs, which relied on generous hopping to protect exports during arduous journeys, this modern incarnation retains the strength, body and strong hop character which is synonymous with this beer’s provenance.

A glorious showcase of the distinct, heavily hopped beers for which Shepherd Neame is famed, India Pale Ale delivers potent bitterness, offset with generous amounts of pale ale malt to deliver a balanced, yet uncompromising brew.

Bottled@SBWF2012. Pale amber colour with a small slightly off white creamy head. Aroma is fruity, herbal, mild spicy hops as well as some toffee, minerals as well as mild bready notes. Flavour is rather similar with a quite big grassy finish.

Quite surprising beer. I was expecting worse. Delicately burned toast and coffee. Bitterness is medium. There is also a slight alcohol feeling.

djoeye (1855) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 10, 2014
Clear amber body with small coppery tones, off white 2-3 finger head, rich lacing. Aroma; mild caramel malts, hops, dust, grass, straw. Taste; hops, caramel malts, orange peels, syrup notes, fine hoppy bitterness coming up and into the finish, malts change character to roasted. Feels well bodied, fresh, clean, normal carbonation. Overall a clean straightforward version of the style. [50cl brown btl, abv6.1%, B@Alko (Muonio-Kilpishalli) 4€, #L174, BBjun15, t@höme]

danielecamo (527) - ITALY - DEC 10, 2014
In bottiglia. Aroma di caramello dominante, terroso, poca pulizia negli aromi. Al palato corpo scorrevole, sentori di caramello e terroso su tutto. Non indimenticabile

StueyD (1239) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2014
A copper coloured beer with a thick and frothy white head. a light, malt led aroma, hints of caramel and nuts, this is followed by pithy citrusy hop aroma that lingers. Dry mouthfeel. A dry caramel malt taste to start, then a mouth filling hop flavour, loads of pithy grapefruit and lemon, then a piney and grassy taste that adds an extra bitterness. The finish is lingering and pithy citrus hoppiness.
