COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
During the 1800's, when the sun never set on the British Empire, beer being shipped to the Far East always arrived spoiled. To correct the situation, British brewers added large quantities of hops to their pale ales. (Hops act as a natural preservative in beer). The result is an intensely hoppy amber beer. (O.G. 1.062 IBUs-50)

fiveacestx (611) - Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2014
On tap at Bosco’s - rust colored with a thin head and lacing. Earthy hop taste with a malty backbone. Thin finish. I was hoping for something higher than 59 IBUs at this place but it was hoppy enough.

onceblind (4472) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Hazy gold with a thin cap of white head. The nose is very hoppy with leafy and grassy bitterness and a touch of grapefruitiness. Tastes pretty bitter at the start but calms down to a less bitter grapefruit/pale grain maltiness, ends kinda dry with a grassy after-bitterness

DiarmaidBHK (3478) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Draft at Boscos little rock. Pours light orange with a thin white head. Not much on the nose or tongue. Just a boring, turgid beer.

rumproasts (3204) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2013 Tap. Amber with small head. Decent hops. On the floral side. Some malt body. One of the better Bosco’s beers, which isn’t a huge endorsement
