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.

12 ounce canned 8/01/17, brewed in Ohio.
Beautiful clear golden color with smallish off white head. Some lacing.
Light grapefruit, lemon peel and grains.
Grapefruit, honey, citrus pith, floral, graininess. Good mouthfeel and drinkability for a low abv beer.

At first this was too bitter and very over powering in taste but after sitting down to really enjoy it I now find it very pleasant. Perfect chilled on a summer day, this beer does quench my thirst. Very hoppy with good carbonation the clear strong citrus taste does take over. I find this the perfect style of IPA. Light and bitter sweet which is not ruined by over powering mix of hops. Fully recommend, especially from draught.

Orange gold with a relatively small, creamy head. Succulent citrus nose. Bittersweet first taste with a little bit of bite, complementing the smell. Fairly smooth to drink with low carbonation. Some malt alongside the mildly bitter grapefruit aftertaste.
