Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: bark on 11-02-2007

Welcome to a post Punk apocalyptic mother of an ale.

A beer that spent its formative years Blitzkrieg Bopping around India and the sub-continent.

This light, golden classic has been subverted with new world hops to create a devastating explosion of flavour. Steel yourself for Kalashnikov bursts of caramel, incendiary tropical fruit and an all-out riot of grapefruit, pineapple and lychee, before a spiky bitter finish.

This is quintessential Empire with an anarchic twist. Turn up the volume. Pay the man. Embrace the punked up, pimped up Maharajah of Pale Ales.

Nothing will ever be the same again.

This pours a light golden color with thin foam. There's a light lemony citrus aroma to this with a lemony crisp citrusy hop flavor. Light malt, hops up front, goes down way too easy.

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with a frothy almost light tan head that settles and laces lightly.

S: Tropical fruit and citrus hops backed with a some caramel malt sweetness.

T: Citrus hops, tangerine and light grapefruit, a hint of pineapple, and some light caramel malt sweetness.

M: Light to medium body, moderate slightly fizzy carbonation, pretty crisp.

O: This beer seems to have gotten lighter since I last had it. Still ok, but I wish there was a little more body to it to help showcase the hops.

L: Poured this very attractive bottle of IPA in to my chalice glass and it came out light amber with a medium to large head. There was a bit of haziness too it when the beer settled.

S: This smelled quite inviting with both citrus and floral hops almost making my mouth water. So far very very good!!

T: Wow theyre not just saying that theres and explosion of taste in your mouth there really is! Lovely grapefruit, caramel, pineapple and some other tropical fruits!

F: Not too heavy and definitely not too gassy for me... just perfect!

O: A very nice IPA (one of my faves) but be warned the alcohol content is high and does not show when consuming.

I expected a lot more than a mid level IPA. I am happy to say America does it better.
