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.

Poured from a 33cl bottle into a standard pint.

A: Dark golden hue. Pours about a finger and a half, frothy, white head. Slight effervescence. Settles very slowly and unevenly leaving craters, and pock marks leaving a foamy buildup around the rim of the glass. Distinct, dry, sticky, beer ring lacing.

S: Pine, lavender, freshly cut grass, and honey.

T: Wheat bread, with pine and a little butterscotch.

M: Very earthy and woody character. Fairly light, very crisp. Punchy hops. Dry finish. Bitterness lingers on the palate throughout.

D: Goes down very easy.

Atmosphere is great. Dark golden coloration, with a large frothy head, and plenty of dry lacing. Nose is strong combinations of floral components, pine, and honey. Earthy flavor with pine and a touch of sweetness. Dry and bitter. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

Had this on draft, much better

BBD of 16 Apr 13, got in under the wire

My first brew dog beer if memory serves me correctly

Pours a slightly hazed apricot color with 3+ fingers of cream colored head. Never really cleared up, fantastic head retention & lacing though

S: Orchard fruit & tons of leafy hops & little bit of pine

T: Biscuitty malt, leafy hops a touch of pine resin & chalky dryness up front. Pears & apricot mingle in as this warms, plus leafy & tobacco hops, plus marmalade & more dryness. Finishes dry, fruitty, & leafy with just a bit of orange peel

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, nicely balanced

Seems more British than American to me, not bad, but would only try again if uber fresh, but drinks easy enough

Batch 024. Best before 7/23/13.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy orange-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and alcohol. Taste is much the same with a citrus zest flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has some solid citrus-like hop aromas and flavors.
