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.

45 IBU

The aroma includes a pleasant mix of pine, passionfruit, grapefruit, caramel. The body is a hazy, orange-ish amber; pours a small head which quickly diminishes. Flavor at first is a burst of pine and fresh fruit—pineapple, orange, peach; there is some soft, earthy bitterness and light bready malt. Medium-light body, crisp carbonation, somewhat dry finish.

The initial burst of fruitiness eventually gives way to the malty sweetness. It's very smooth, crisp, refreshing, easy to drink. The bitterness and hoppiness are not at all overwhelming. In fact, the hoppiness, sweetness, and bitterness are surprisingly well balanced. A very enjoyable IPA indeed.

Balanced hops, with apricot being the dominate hop flavor. Very drinkable and sipable.
