Notes / Commercial Description:
Our scene-stealing flagship is an India Pale Ale that has become a byword for craft beer rebellion; synonymous with the insurgency against mass-produced, lowest common denominator beer. Punk IPA charges the barricades to fly its colours from the ramparts – full-on, full-flavour; at full-throttle. Layered with new world hops to create an explosion of tropical fruit and an all-out riot of grapefruit, pineapple and lychee before a spiky bitter finish, this is transatlantic fusion running at the fences of lost empires. Nothing will ever be the same again.

500 cl can - pours a not quite clear golden colour with 2 fingers of slightly off white head. Aroma is malty sweet with mango, pineapple, verging on a bit sweaty.
Taste is pleasantly hoppy without being overly bitter - orange, mango, slightly tropical - very well balanced. Finishes with malty sweetness well balanced hop - very drinkable. A really good old style IPA.

I was surprised I hadn't rated this one before, here goes...
L- Darker gold, veeery slight haze. Pours with say 3-4mm white head now heading to lacing / late ps, which holds well.
S- Simple to get the fruits from this, Seems like a combo of lychee + tangerine.
T- Hoppy on the front, balanced fruitiness follows. It is not a contemporarily fashionable 'hop bomb', it's balanced.
M- It is to the dryer side and refreshing.
O- Nice. When I see a craft type beer this days and the styles 'IPA/APA' and so on I fear hop-bombs, this isn't, it is somewhat over to the dryer side, but they've done a nice job and it's balanced. I'd certainly drink this agaain, nice work.

Bought from Waitrose in London at £6 for a 4-pack of 330ml cans. BB on bottom of can reads: '29/08/19 - REMIXED IN SCOTLAND'
