Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Bomber into a tulip
A. Golden orange, slightly cloudy, two fingers of off white head, thick lacing
S. Aroma is quite nice, orange, lemon, pear, some tart apple, cracker malt.
T. Flavor doesn't follow aroma too well. The fruit flavors are very subdued and there is so much off metallic flavor it's a task to drink. Malt is there though.
M. Thin, watery metallic.
O. First time with this and meh. Not getting again.
