Vale Brewery - Punk is Dead

WP_20160326_13_38_20_ProWhat they say? Well, it’s not to the brewery website, so may well have been a special for Weatherspoon's beer festival, however www.guestales.co.uk  say this: “American red IPA style, a hoppy aroma leads to biscuit malt flavours which, in turn, yield to the American hop flavours, resulting in a vibrant character and a long finish”

Not bad, but too hoppy for me and at 5.0% A.B.V too strong to consider as session beer.
