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.

A-Cloudy golden yellow pour with a good bit of white frothy head with good retention and wonderful lacing.

S-Good deal of hops in the nose. Citrus aroma overwhelms the smell with hints of pine and bready malt.

T- Quite the opposite of the smell. Very malty up front with a faint citrus hop finish.

M- Great texture. Smooth...but not too light, moderate carbonation.

O- This is a solid beer. Very drinkable, I could definitely put back a couple of these. That being said, I prefer a more hop forward IPA with more IBUs.
