Pirate Life IIPA - Imperial IPA - 8.8%
Ripper IIPA from a brewery destroying all before it. Everything is big as you would expect but it's balanced like a souped-up Russian gymnast (topical). Big citrus on the nose and a lovely smooth malt to hold it together. These guys can do no wrong. We shared one of these beasts at Slow Beer in Richmond, sitting at the window watching weird Bridge Road characters go by.
