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 beers 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.

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, doesnt feel like a 6.1%, drinks very easily, lovely!

TedE (1246) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2017
500ml bottle into pint glass. This beer looks perfect, golden copper colour with fulsome white head and steady medium carbonation. Laces right down the glass. Nose is forever England, subdued toffee malt and grassy hops. Body is full, texture is oily. Its a cleansing bitter beer with a dark smoky caramel malt finish. Gorgeous example of English ale.

Brewhemia (300) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2017
Light amber with white head. Sweet malty aroma (bread and caramel) and some european hoppiness (hay/grass) and some dusty-like aroma. The taste is medium sweet with flavor notes of grassy hops. Medium to strong bitter finish. Seems more malt flavored than the american IPAs I am used to drinking and less hoppy, though it has a decent hop flavor and bitterness. I actually like the balance the higher emphesis on maltflavor adds to the hoppiness. I like it.

promontor (147) - HUNGARY - FEB 16, 2017
0.5l bottle from Real hypermarket near Arad, Romania. Starts with nice off-white medium head, creamy, but quick to vanish. Body is clear with ruby colour. Moderate malty aroma. Taste is typical English malts with typical English hops, caramel, nuts, some moderate dried fruits. Aftertaste is bitter, a bit dry. Mouthfeel is smooth, silky, with moderate carbonation, very nice. Good, harmonic, well composed, but nothing special.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2017 From a bottle. Caramel malty aroma and sweet caramel malt flavours with some burnt toffee, nuts and tar, almost treacle at times. Pleasant long bitter finish from hops. Smooth ale with creamy mouthfeel and medium body. Well put together and enjoyable. Classic English malty IPA.

Got similaire, sucre dorge, un peu de noix, malt torrfi, caramel, finale un peu mtallis. Faiblement houblonn, trs voir trop sucr. Cest pas mauvais mais certainement pas impressionnant.
