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.

3.75/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance - Very pale yellow, with a small but dense and lumpy white head.

Smell - Grapefruit, pine, alcohol, resin, and a bit of buiscut.

Taste - It starts out bready, dry, and well balanced, but the hops show their true power at the finish. The finish is very bitter, as is the lingering aftertaste. Now that I think of it, there's not much flavor to the hops other than bitterness, and a little bit of grapefruit that probably comes from the nose more than anything.

Mouthfeel - Medium-thin body and medium-low carbonation.

Notes - This isn't really my kind of IPA, in that I prefer more diverse hop flavors and less raw bitterness. Like all my reviews this is the first beer of the night, however I suspect this beer would work better at the middle or end of a session, when your taste buds are already numbed and the bitterness would be more welcome. I didn't care for the lingering bitter aftertaste and the thinner-than-average body. On the plus side I enjoyed the nose, and the dry malts worked well. Overall, I'd rate it as average. Not bad, but not worth seeking out.
