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.

I tried this beer while I was in Scotland and I was pleased to find it on tap as I have wanted to try this beer for sometime. I made sure to take some notes as I wanted to remember what it tasted like when I returned home.

As a big fan of IPAs, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this beer as I had some assumption it would let me down in some way. (mainly due to all the kudos it gets) In every catagory, this IPA excelled. The hop flavor was strong but not so much so that it was overpowering like some. It was extremely smooth for a for an IPA but still really hoppy. I also was pleased that the alchol content wasn't up in the 7's but it didn't taste weaker as I expected. No way to describe this beer other then pretty close to perfect for an IPA.

A - Golden and ruby colored, quite cloudy aswell. Medium carbonation and a rather small head. Looks really mystical and makes me just wanna taste it.

S - A little bit of floral hops, fruity malts with a dash of grapefruit.

T - First hops, but after a while the beer grows and i get a aroma of rhubarb and grapefruit. Carbonation works perfect with the taste and brings out the flavors.

M - Feels rather light and smooth in the mouth. Carbonation is perfect the first 5 min after you've opened the bottle, then tend to fade away.

O - A great beer, would work for smaller sessions and I would definitely recommend it.
