COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
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.

King Willliam IV. Thanks to Leighton for this one. Clear amber beer, residual white head. Light palate, smooth and semi dry. Sweet malts, bordering on syrupy. Papery. Tiny bit of English Hop slanted citrus. Smooth finish. In a world with many fine IPAs - this one is rubbish!
