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.

Poured from 11.2oz bottle into shaker pint with a nice fluffy inch and a half white head. Color is a straw yellow with a slight haze. Some good lacing was left on the glass as I drank it.

Aroma is fantastic! Huge burst of citrus dominates

Taste - grapefruit, a bit of sweetness balanced by a good amount of hops

Mouthfeel is standard for an IPA - medium body and good carbonation

Overall - this is a good IPA but nothing too special. I got really worked up after the pour and taking a big whiff, but taste was okay. Not worth the price IMO ( 12 for a 4 pack)

Pour a very pale clear amber.

The smell is citrus/tropical hops, pineapple dominates.

The taste is citrus hops pineapple,lemon, orange, fairly bitter. The malt is very light, definitely hop forward.

The feel is light, easy drinking, medium carbonation.

Overall a really good ipa in the american style but is still original.
