[email protected] Copper colour, not much head. Aroma is wood, mild dry fruits as well as some earthyness and mild notes of pine. Flavour is much the same along with some citrusfruityness coming in quite strong.

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

harrisoni (17484) - 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.

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.

Fin (9811) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2009
Cask at Merton Summer Beer and Cider Festival, 17-07-09 Pours hazy gold with white head. This beer has a nice thrusting bitterness, its dry at the end and superbly hoppy. I like this and in particular those little stalacmite spikes of hoppiness that drop from the roof of the mouth. A6 A3 F8 P4 Ov14 3.5

Cask Conditioned Gravity Dispense Merton BF. A copper coloured beer with a loose whitish head and lacing.. The aroma is soapy and hoppy but theres a heavy, amybe cloying sweetness on the nose too. The taste has good piney hops and theres good length. Its tasty but Red Squirrel have done far better beers with American hops.
