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.

Poured into a hotel tumbler. Purchased at Don Quixote in Kawasaki, Japan.

Color is hard to assess in the tumbler, but it pours straw-colored. Head is good with good retention. Smell is really nice - lots of citrus and tropical hops with a hint of sweetness. Flavor is all about the hops, but they aren't overwhelming. Nice bitter and lingering finish. Body is medium.

Overall, a really good IPA - much more my style than the Asahi I had with dinner.
