Cask; Occasional.
Based on a secret Michigan recipe, this original American IPA contains the highest quality malts, combining pale, Munich, Caramalt and pale Crystal malts producing a world class ale which is golden orange in colour, showing complex hoppy aromas with floral and citrus tones with a long lingering finish.

Cask (Isis, Sunderland) - Amer in colour. Marmalade, pine and peach in the aroma. Grapefruit, apricot and sultanas in the taste. Nice, but not as hoppy as I was expecting (not necessarily) it would be.

Aroma: malt, light hops. Appearance: dark brown, no head. Taste: medium to heavy sweet. Palate: very light bitterness coming up, smokey. Overall: OK APA, nothing special though. Pint at The Harp, London.

Bottle from the Red Squirrel Brewery Shop and Tap Room. Clear light brown and orange with a medium off white head. Nose is citrousy hop, light pine, nutty malt, light caramel. Taste is tangy pine and green hop bitter, with some light caramel and light nuttiness. Lacks a bit of malt backbone to carry the hop for me, but decent.

fairwater (124) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2013
Cask @ Alehouse. Slightly hazy deep orange, tight head. Aroma is sweets from my childhood, strawberry maybe. Immediate bitterness, recedes to a sweetness that becomes toffee bananas. Lingering bitterness. I like this one!

Cask @ Harp. Amber clear with small white bubbly head which didn't stick around for long. No carbonation. Not much aroma, some malty sweetness maybe a little hops, nothing much. Sweet malty flavour giving way to bitterness. Ok but I'd expected more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jackl (3859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Cask @ some random pub in Stockwell. Deep red with a small white head. The nose is floral hops, strong herbs and citrus fruits. The taste is big chewy cherry malted body supporting a strong dash of floral hops. Quite herbal. The body’s medium. This beer feels a bit disjointed and strange, missing a harmony of flavor that elevates the best beer. Still, pretty flavorful...

Cask conditioned handpump Veritas Leeds 25/07/12. A classic brown coloured beer with a tight whitish head and lacing. Very hoppy with lots of bitter orange notes. Malts are a bit too sweet and chewy. Body is very large but not althogether appreciated. Hops are definitely big and bold. An odd grittiness in the mouth. Nose seems oddly shallow. Hit and miss.

Served on cask and dispensed into an English half pint jug at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - Jan ’12 Pours to a clear golden hue with a small white head, looks just the ticket when held up to the light! Lots of hops in the aroma for an English IPA - sweet malt on the nose and also citrus notes. Toasted malts, orange/grapefruit flavour amongst the hopping and a little caramel, a fairly sweet finish with little in the way of bitterness. A medium bodied beer with just the right level of carbonation.

Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 13th May 2012. Copper with white head soon decaying to a ring.. Lacing mainly at first. Quite a hoppy and yeasty aroma. Malty and quite sweet in-mouth, with a citric hoppy tang. Boiled-sweet notes. Citric fruitiness and maltiness dying down to leave something of a bitter finish. Light texture.
