This light copper single hop India Pale Ale is brewed only with the Fuggles hops. It has a smooth, dry, and crisp flavor with floral aroma and apple plum palate.

Nice amber pour, but a disappointing head, that diminishes quickly. Nice citrus aroma of grapefruit and orange. Didn't quite finish right though, as it had a metallic taste. Maybe I had a bad bottle or two. A Good IPA, but not something that stands out as a refined brew.

pivo (2646) - GERMANY - JAN 5, 2004
Overall a successful IPA, but nothing I'd seek out. Hoppy nose and finish, but could be stronger. Had a homebrew quality to it for me that lost points.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2004
Draught, @ Federal Jack’s, Kennebunk, Maine.</br> Golden with a fine thin white lacy head. Strong bitter hop aroma. Good bitter hop strength and length on the palate. Classic American IPA. Hopped right out.

Radek Kliber (6709) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 2, 2004
Bright amber. Medium hop , lighter front . Cream medium body . I found that this IPA is a bit shy; more bitterness appears at the end. Gets better while you drink.

SpringsLicker (3266) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 1, 2004
This IPA needs more hops. It's a good Pale ale, but it's thin bodied to me. i'd like to have more maltiness, better body & color, and some hops in the aroma that stand out. Just because it doesn't use American hops doesn't mean it has to be wimpy. I've had Fuggles hopped IPA's that can take on the West Coast's best, but this isn't one of them.

Oakes (13601) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2004
Amber-orange. Aroma shows tangerines, earth, hedgey notes. Slightly salty on the palate with earthy bitterness. Slightly peachy. Quite bitter.

ElGaucho (2319) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Faint aroma with only some yeast distinguishable. A little hazy with some very small particles. Small, off white head. I'm getting tired of these non-hoppy East Coast IPAs. American IPA's are supposed to be robustly bitter, and this one sure isn't. Flavor is undistinguished. Simply doesn't taste like an IPA. I preceded this one with a Bell's Batch 6000, which may have ruined my palate for awhile. About mid-bottle this brew started to taste a little better. A little cloyingly malty. Not bad, just mis-labeled.

brownaler (393) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2003
This IPA has a nice blend of hops within its flavor that tastes a little fruity as well. Pretty good IPA.

YogiBeera (2554) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Fruity nose, orange, no head. Grape hoppy and apricot taste. Nice average IPA

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 Re-rate: This must be a different beer to the one I tried 10 years ago. Smelt and tasted awful - like a terrible macro bitter. Drain pour. New score = 2.0.>>> Bottle, at the Swan and Rushes, Leicester. I don’t have much experience with IPA’s but I thought this was an absolutely delicious beer. Wonderfully fresh, bitter taste, which starts out big then relents somewhat. Nice orangey notes are ever-present, once the first wave of hops has subsided, and the aftertaste is nice, coupled with a tingling tongue. Warm orange colour too. (Original rating on 5th April 2004, scored 4.0)
