This is beer back-ordered, beer like it used to be, beer like it should be, beer like it will be. Welcome to a post Punk apocalyptic mother of an India Pale Ale. A beer that spent its formative years blitzkrieg bopping around India and sub-continent. Quintessential Empire with an anarchic twist. God Save the Queen and all who sail in her. Raising a stiff little finger to IPAs that have come before and those it has yet to meet. Embraced the punked up, outlaw elite. Nevermind the bollocks this is the real deal.
Clear gold in color with a hoppy nose. Very light for an IPA: smooth and malty, which the nose did not suggest. On the malty and bitter end of the IPA spectrum. We could drink a lot of this. Old World beer imitating a New World beer imitating a Old World style. Think about that while you are drunk!
Would we have this again? Yes
Would we get a 6-pack? Yes
