Brewed in the style of a traditional IPA, this robust, golden ale has a full hop aroma, powerful and full-bodied palate and plenty of hop flavour in the long, lingering finish. Hops used: Cascade, Mount Hood

Light copper colour. Floral hop aroma. Some fruity sweetness, a touch of apple. Quite an intense level of hops. Nicely dry.

Cask @ 3 Judges. Clear goldne colour, off-white head. Nose iscitric, light malted. Flavour is malty, citrus, slightly flowery, bit of rubber. Slightly bitter finish. The last bit of the cask.

Cask @ The 3 Judges. Fruity hoppy malty aroma. Golden brown colour, reasonable head. Fruity malt flavour, bitter aftertaste. OK it was at the end of the cask but this I think is more a bitter than an American Pale Ale.

On cask at Odiham and Greywell Cricket Club. Poured a deep golden colour with a very hoppy aroma. The beer is very full bodied also which certainly ticked all the right boxes for me and proved another very drinkable pint from those at Phoenix.

MiP (13596) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2011
Cask, 4.6%. Mild dusty aroma. Almost clear dark golden colour. Nice firm white head. Sweetish fruity flavour, red berries. Very well-balanced. Not like American IPA, but very good.

From cask. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is mild fruity and slight hoppy. Crisp hoppy, bitter and slight citrusy. Bitter, dry and hoppy into a mild citrusy finish. Dry and hoppy into the far finish.

29th May 2009. Clear light amber beer. Immediate juicy hoppiness but not that bitter or overwhelming.

evergreen0199 (2004) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2009
Cask at Ealing beer fest 2009. Golden pour with light head on top. A nice hoppy aroma. Hoppy, citrus, slightly bitter taste. Not bad but this ain’t no US style beer IMO.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2009
Cask in the alfread herring. Alround rating: Biscuity british malt, grassy small lemon hop character, dry bitterness. Too british in style, needs more american hop late additions.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2009
The Figure of Eight (JDW), Broad St, Birmingham. I’ve been after this one, and it’s good but lightweight. Dusty red amber with a slender white rim. Musky hopleaf aroma with a good squeeze of citrussy resins. Faint Brewdog Punk IPA-like lychee and mandarin notes with biscuit. Quenchingly hoppy, but was expecting more. Punk IPA shandy.
