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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

This was poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. There was not much head and it quickly dissipated. The color was cloudy orange. Some lacing was present. Initial smell was a pleasant citrus, but it mellowed out, and was not as detectable later. The taste was a crisp grapefruit with orange and grass notes.

The citrus flavors grew and developed smoothly from beginning to end and lingered after the finish. It was difficult to detect any malt flavors. Mouthfeel was somewhat watery, which made this a very drinkable IPA. The bitterness was not challenging to the palate. Overall, this beer was a good example of a basic IPA.

3.68/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Hazed goldenrod with a pure white head that drops a smattering of lace. Punch of pine followed by a faint orange flavor. Malt is crackery with a lingering huskiness. Dry finish with just a faint lingering bitterness. Just a bit watery through the middle and end. Decent, but why pay $11 for a 4-pack of average IPA when there are loads of better options on the shelves?
