Notes/Commercial Description:
Welcome to a post Punk apocalyptic mother fucker of a pale ale.

A beer that spent its formative years Blitzkrieg bopping around India and the sub continent. Quintessential Empire with an anarchic twist.

God save the Queen and all who sail in her. Raising a Stiff Little Finger to IPAs that have come before and those it is yet to meet.
Turn up the volume Pay the man. Embrace the punked up, fucked up outlaw elite.

Never Mind the Bollocks this is the real shit.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Heavily hop hazed golden yellow with a modest white head that recedes to a pool and retains well. Some bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass. One of the lighter IPAs I've seen.
S: I'm recovering from an upper respiratory infection so my nose isn't quite up to the job but I'm picking up some spicy pine notes with a bit of bitterness. it smells the part.
T: Mellow sweetness builds to some pine flavors and a nice spice kick. Plenty of bitterness on the swallow that lingers for a time with a bit of residual sweetness. On the swallow there is also a hint of grape fruit flavor. It has balance and a nice hop kick so it can walk the walk.
M: slick and full bodied with adequate carbonation
D: Very high. Polishing off this bomber will be a pleasure.

Overall: A solid representation of the style from the BrewDog and I'm happy it made its way into my beer purchase but wish I would have drank it a bit sooner.
