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.

Golden clear beer with a white head.
Great fruity/green aroma that really smells of fresh hops, like rubbing a cone at harvest time.
Taste and mouthfeel are hoppy but not overwhelmingly bitter. No astringency, not too much carbonation. Easy drinking.
Malt is on the background.

Kind of like a a dry German pils with the aroma of an (American) IPA.

A pale golden ale, white head that disappears quickly. Used a wet glass.

A fresh pale ale. Casade hops I guess, so fruity and resiny. Light malts. Smells good.

Taste follows the nose really. Lighter malts so like grainly and bready. Hop forwards with some tropical fruitiness and a decent bitterness. Nice session beer.

Mouthfeel is pretty lager like, a little more creamy perhaps.

Overal a great session beer. Not very complex but tasty.

Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber.

Pours a hazy medium gold with a very thin, fizzy white head that settles to just a thin ring around the edge of the glass. Not impressive.

Aroma has some overripe fruit character made up of oranges and tangerines. Maybe a touch of grapefruit thrown in there as well. A light touch of toasted malt.

Flavor is lacking in intensity unfortunately. Orange and tangerine dominate with some juiciness but it is a little too subdued. Bitterness is only moderate as well. Malt is in the background and props up the body but barely; just a bit of toast. The mouthfeel is probably the worst thing about this beer. Just watery all the way around.

Overall, I was expecting a bit more out of this beer. It just doesn't really stand up to some of the great IPA's being produced today. This might have been a standout beer in the U.K. years ago but I feel that probably isn't the case any longer.
