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 in the Old Swan, Bucks. Deep amber colour, white foam. Quite malty, English in that respect, caramel and sweetish. Citrusy tropical slightly resiny hops, not overly bitter but pleasantly so. I thought this was a nice pint.

Cask at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. 5.9% ABV on the pump clip. A clear amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit, some pine, a little caramel, slight toasted malt, orange and subtle nuttiness. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, some resin, a little caramel, nuts, slight toasted malts, subtle tobacco, maybe coffee and subtle floral hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A bittersweet, citrusy, nutty bitterness in the finish with a toasty malt aftertaste. A very easy drinking APA packed full of interesting, complex flavours. Lovely.

Keg at the Berkhamsted beer shop in Berkhamsted, Herts. An orange/amber coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, malty, caramel aroma. Tastes hoppy, malty, caramel, slight sweetness with a bitter finish. Highly drinkable APA and certainly the best beer that I have had from Red Squirrel.

sound67 (595) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2015
[Waterloo Beer Festival, Liverpool, 2014] - Red Squirrel Brewery Redwood American IPA, 5.4%. Bernsteinfarben klar. Kräftiges Pfirsicharoma mit floralen Noten. Mittleres Mundgefühl, nicht mehr wässrig. Im Antrunk recht bitter, hopfig floral mit einer Himbeersirup Note, etwas Harz. Zur Mitte harziger und bitterer, süßlicher Hintergrund ebbt ab. Abgang betont floral, weiterhin bitter, keine Frucht mehr. Nachhall anhaltend hopfenbitter. Gutes, durch Himbeere etwas ungewöhnliches American IPA.

wheresthepath (1876) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Cask at the Falcon (JDW), High Wycombe. Orange-amber with a moderate white head. Spicy citrus hop is well balanced by caramel and Weetabix malt that gives a smooth rich mouthfeel to this flavoursome beer. Good stuff.

Cask gravity Firkin Ale House Folkestone. Clear dark amber lasting white head. Malty grapefruit hop aroma. Its ok not as hoppy aroma as it could be bitter on the finish. Caramel rather than diacetyl. Not great though

Bottle at home split with Sarah pciked up at the Brewery shop in Chesham. Clear deep orange coloured pour with a big off white head. Aroma is some smoke phenol, piney hops, light cirtus and some tobacco. Flavour is sweetish biscuity malts, decent wet grassy, piney hops. Firm smooth grassy bitterness. Palate is highish carbonation medium sweet. Again that hint of smokey phenol lingers in the back end. Decent English IPA.

Had this in bottle at Bracelands Campsite, nr Coleford, Forest of Dean, Glos, Saturday 6th September 2014 purchased from Jacks, Goring. Pours orangey gold with off white large fluffy head. The hoppiness has waned a little, but it is still there a touch furry and with a little grapefruit. Some toffee and maltiness, pretty good. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3
