Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.60%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Welcome to a post Punk apocalyptic mother of an ale.

A beer that spent its formative years Blitzkrieg Bopping around India and the sub-continent.

This light, golden classic has been subverted with new world hops to create a devastating explosion of flavour. Steel yourself for Kalashnikov bursts of caramel, incendiary tropical fruit and an all-out riot of grapefruit, pineapple and lychee, before a spiky bitter finish.

This is quintessential Empire with an anarchic twist. Turn up the volume. Pay the man. Embrace the punked up, pimped up Maharajah of Pale Ales.

Nothing will ever be the same again.

45 IBU

Rating options don't offer the choice of ''flavors''.
FLAVORS is the keyword to this Scottish IPA. Worthy of the best American IPAs, including some bitterness and a reasonable ABV level. Perfection.
Had many draught pints at Black Peat pub in Angers, in the Loire Valley.
Away from Wisconsin, this ale is Oxygen to me.

The Punk IPA has a great grapefruit smell. It is very smooth and well balanced. This is a beer I could drink all day.
