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.

Creedence (287) - Montreal, Quebec, - NOV 17, 2013
500ml bottle enjoyed with friends. Pours a copper gold with almost no head that quickly dissipates. Looks flat and unappealing. Aroma is strongly of wood with a little toffee. Slightly cardboardy hops. Taste is a woody carboardy sweetness thats overpowered by a metallic bitterness. Rough and messy and flat to finish. Metallic aftertaste dominates as well. Bad beer, very disappointing for a highly regarded brewery.

[2016-10-22] Copper-brown, clear, natural white small head. The aroma has spices and is perfume-like.The taste is malty sweet with spices, which remind of Christmas beers. Not very well balanced.

blackbock (121) - Shoalhaven NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2016
(bottle) Nondescript slightly caramel aroma. Poured a brilliant deep amber. Head formed no lace in glass. First impression a simple, numbing bitterness with little hop flavour, but a rich crystal backbone. This beer represents a more authentic IPA style but unfortunately tasted a little old fashioned for my taste and I would struggle to drink more than 1 or 2.

Mathead (11) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 18, 2016
Malty with a sweet and bitter note. Pours clear amber with small, shy head. Quite like it, even though its rather down to earth compared to other IPAs.
