Notes/Commercial Description:
It’s just a helluva shock. Something that gets the adrenalin pumping like a 400 volt shot in a copper bathtub has to be good for the soul. Join the hardcore elite, screw down the throttle and ride. Ride until your lungs bleed and your arms numb. Gun the fucker. Don’t pull back, or slow down until the crazy music starts. Then sit, stunned, wall-eyed, open mouthed, in the realization this mother will drill you with Panzer-like efficiency. And you’ll beg for more.

Poured a hazy orangery-amber with a short-lived white head. There is an slight amount of lacing. The aroma is mild and malty, with light hints of pine. The flavor is also pretty malty, but there is a nice blast of hops bitterness. There wasn't any one flavor or flavors I could put my finger on but it still tastes good all the same. There is a pleasant thickness to the body. It's not a huge American-style IPA, but for England, this is big bold flavorful version. It's all about perspective, I suppose.
