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

Appearance – Cloudy amber in colour with a finger of head that does not last long and leaves minimal lacing. There is also little evidence of carbonation in this one.

Smell – Very fruity and estery nose to this one. Strong hints of plum and mango.

Taste – Very sharp up front on the first mouthful, but there is really good fruit back with esters and good malt hop balance.

Mouthfeel – Quite light bodied but still feels full in the mouth despite the lack of head.

Overall – Very pleasing and certainly up there with the better IPAs I have had. Decent balance and boasting confident flavour this is a nice brew and I will definitely be having it again.
