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

A beautiful beer

Light in the mouth with soothing hops. This beer is designed to be drunk with mates over some grilled seafood on a sunday afternoon or alternatively at some grungy wild house party with topless girls and pure madness.

On the nose i get some bread with straight forward orange and green grass that sends out a certain cleansing vibe.
The taste follows the nose with bread then the slightly rough hops which leads to more bread.

Love this beer and really recommend its simplicity but seducing character.

I had this on tap at the Dundee BrewDog in August 2014 and then again in a couple of bottles in Brighton in December 2015. It was one of the hoppier ales I had in the UK on either trip.
