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.

First brew punk beer. Color is very light but bright. Citrusy aroma is apparent right away, malt sits in the far back seat. Reminds me of the few New Zealand beers I've tried, tropical notes like pineapple kiwi mango. Not spicy though in any big sense, nor is it sweet to speak of so I guess it has good balance. Somehow this isn't exciting to me, but I enjoy it and would repurchase. It does have nice complexity, zylophone type. Not a flavor profile I'm into quite as much though.
