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.

Creedence's rating

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
Creedence (309) - 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 that’s 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.

From old tasting notes. Amber orange color. Thick rocky beige head. Malty nose. Dryish toasted malt flavor. Hints of caramel and spice. A good brew, just a little light on the hops for an IPA.

miggle (344) - Fürth, GERMANY - JUL 13, 2017
Red brown color, basically no head. Aroma of Black currant and Wood. Taste has a sweet start with light bitter ending. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pleispleis (108) - Maccagno, ITALY - JUL 3, 2017
Bottiglia 50 cl, colore ambrato carici limpido, schiuma bianca media grana media persistenza, al naso malto e leggero frutta tropicale, carbonatazione lieve, corpo leggero, in bocca malto caramello e leggere note agrumate, dolce con amaro accentuato lungo nel finale. Poco aromatica non entusiasmante 03.07.17 @ Jbar Riccione

Padchenko (355) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 2, 2017
Pours dark amber with small white head. Sweet malt in the mouth and bitter hops in the finish. Nice

herrklemann (253) - Graz, AUSTRIA - JUN 17, 2017
Bottle. Clear reddish amber, small white head. Sugary, slightly floral and sweet in the nose. Medium sweetness, medium bitterness. A bit sugary thin with soft carbonation.

vinivini (2404) - Gomel, BELARUS - MAY 29, 2017
Bottle with the lovely vintage design label. Clear amber ale with small off-white frothy head of low retention. Malty aroma. Caramel. Biscuit. Fruit esters. Spicy hops. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Bittersweet taste. Lots of caramel end biscuit. Decent spicy hopping. Bitter finish. OK.

Cerveza color ámbar oscuro corona de espuma pequeña de baja retención. Aromas a maltas y sutil lúpulo al final. Al paladar consistencia ligera con notas a maltas, amargor sutil con posterior retrogusto dulce. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TedE (1332) - 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. It’s a cleansing bitter beer with a dark smoky caramel malt finish. Gorgeous example of English ale.

Fules (1227) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAR 6, 2017
Nagy, tartós hab, sötét réz szín. Karamelles, komlós, fűszeres illat. Enyhén karamelles, komlós-fűszeres íz. Közepesen testes, közepesen keserű és erősen szénsavas. Sallangoktól mentes, tisztességesen összerakott, visszafogott IPA.
