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 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.

SarkyNorthener (4276) - 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.

Brewhemia (285) - 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 (133) - 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.
