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.

Flensburger (4) - Hamburg, Hamburg, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2014 does not count
A classic India Pale Ale: amber in colour, really strong and malty aroma. intensively bitter at the same time, the bitterness offers some hints of citrus and pine. Long lasting finish! Still it comes well-balanced.

Shepherd India Pale Ale Nariz: Gran equilibrio entre malta y lúpulo con aromas a grano tostado , toffe, durazno, mandarina, notas especiadas como a pimienta y clavo y aromas resinosos que recuerdan madera Boca: Inmediatamente se percibe un amargor muy marcado, en boca se acentúa el lúpulo con sabores torrefactos acompañados de un final seco Vista: Limpia, cobriza brillante con tonos rojizos y verdosos con una corona sostenida y abundante color beige de micro esfera compacta y fina

color ámbar pálido, carbonización constante que hace atractiva su apariencia, la cabeza es de dos dedos y medio color blanco, el aroma es maltoso con notas a lima, cereza y muy frutal, el sabor es lo interesante comienza primero la malta junto con el sabor frutal: cereza, frutos rojos y algo de lima que no es fuerte pero ayuda a intensificar lo antes dicho, el final es amago como el de una bitter inglesa pero se intensifica más mientras hablas.

Toffee on the nose. Beautiful copper colour with thin head. Full malt flavours, toffee, coffee and chocolate. Good bitterness keeps it refreshing. Lovely

Fantastic spicy undertones with a very smooth finish. At 6.1% it packs a punch but will keep you coming back for more. A new favourite!

scotty (1079) - SCOTLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Clean pale amber in colour, head is thin and disappears quickly (loses a point!) but otherwise looks good! Light nose of malty caramel and lovely citrus hops, nice! Well hopped palate with slightly sweet malt, the finish goes on for ages with different layers of zesty hops and malt appearing and lingering, delicious! A crackin’ beer, doesn’t feel like a 6.1%, drinks very easily, lovely!

Welley_Alves (225) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 31, 2013
Ótima english IPA da tradicional Sheperd Neame da Inglaterra. Cor vermelho-âmbar, com media formacao de espuma, no nariz se sobressaindo o malte inglês clássico, toffee, além de notas cítricas discretas. Na boca amargor agradável, refrescante, com corpo médio. Na seqüência, vêm notas maltadas, lembrando pao e toffee. Retrogosto amargo e agradável. Lembra uma ESB, muito boa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Erzengel (5078) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 5, 2013
Chestnut brown in colour, malty-ale-typical aroma. The beer starts malty, very full-bodied. The mainpart is nicely hopped, flowery aroma together with malty ale character. Nicely bitter. The aftertaste is long, intense malty and nice bitter! Thanks to Seanyfo for this great beer! --> 13/12/13/13

Bottle 0,5 l, ASDA, Bournemouth, England, UK. Miedziane piwo o grubej, puszystej, sztywnej i trwałej pianie oraz łagodnym, owocowym aromacie. W smaku gęste, początkowo słodowe i owocowe a następnie chmielowe z wyrazistą i długą goryczką na finiszu.
