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.

SarkyNorthener (3174) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle. Amber colour beer with small head. Biscuit aroma. The taste is a lot of biscuit with some hops and some citrus notes. Medium bodied. An OK beer but for me the biscuit aroma and taste is too predominant.

Pyobon (1148) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 4, 2015
(Bottle) Clear Amber with small white head. Nice aroma - light malt, slight flintiness, with some gentle hop notes. Medium body with great carbonation. Taste is light caramel with lovely complex hoppy bitterness. Great classic IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bursztynowy kolor z piekna biala piana ktora utrzymuje sie calkiem dlugo. Wyraznie wyczuwalna goryczka ktora jednak nie przeszkadza. Lekkie nuty przypraw i owocow. Mocne piwo.

bartlebier (2760) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2015
500ml bottle, Imp. MHD Mai 2016. - often featured in guides and still labeled as "Brtitain’s oldest brewery", their IPA here is classified as an English Strong Ale and tastes like a broadly brushstroked ESB: aroma of caramalts and Cointreau orange peel, notes of cardboard. Thinner caramalt sugars and well-behaved Fuggles on a thin and even tinny-metallic, filtered palate make for a bit of a letdown.

Tognetta (440) - Campinas, BRAZIL - SEP 2, 2015
Acobreado, espuma de média formação e boa persistência. Aroma caramelado, biscoito, discreto mas crescente com o tempo de copo. Paladar maltado, leve amargor e dulçor, pouco lúpulo mas dentro do estilo. Corpo leve e carbonatação média . Aftertaste misto de caramelo e amargor, seguindo as impressões iniciais. Boa drinkability. Esperava um pouco mais.
