Cask at GBBF. Clear amber beer, light and slightly dry palate. Pleasantly hopped but nowhere near an American IPA, not even close!

leaparsons (8303) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2010
Cask, Leicester Fest 10. Lightly hazy gold with a small foam. Aromas are peppery pine with grapefruit and spiced oranges. Lots of aromatic hops. Flavours are sweet and fruity with grapefruit bitterness. Crisp with green pine. Some woody notes. Has a long bitter aftertaste. A good hoppy brew.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2010
Cask (handpump) at the Great British Beer Festival, August 2009. Ginger colour. Distinct US hop aroma. Maybe a bit thin on the palate but otherwise pretty decent. Red Squirrel do these US influenced beers rather well although, understandably, have to make some concessions to the UK marketplace. So what is described as an IPA often seems more like an APA.

fonefan (35959) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2009
Cask @ GBBF 09, Great British Beer Festival, Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London, England.
Clear medium amber color with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, moderate to heavy hoppy, pine, grapefruit, orange. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long to average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20090805]

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2009
A Mes rate. Gravicask at GBBF.
A straight down the middle blend of an English bitter and a U.S. pale ale. All the toffee and earth from the English side hand in hand with some really good bitter American hops. Red squirrel have been producing some really good stuff recently, this is no exception.

harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2009
Cask at GBBF 2009. Copper/amber, bubbly head. Good toffeeish IPA, yes not in your face, like some US IPAs, but good hop flavour, bitterness and general mouth enlivening. Solid, decent. Nice nettle on finish. Good English IPA.
