330ml Bottle. Its aroma is very faint and of grassy malts. It pours a light amber topped with a thin medium laced white head. Its taste is watery grass followed by biscuity malts and a dry bitter finish. TBH this tastes of a mass market brewers attempt at an IPA rather than a decnt citrus inspired craft beer. To market it as fuggles IPA is an insult as that is what it needs more of - a hoppy taste.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing here and there in no intricate fashion as it just kind of went all over the place. The smell had some light citrus hops that were over top of some English malts. Obvious soapiness is slightly there. The taste was mainly sweet through the malts and the hops. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but still slightly subdued as well. Overall, this beer was decent as an English IPA that I could down again.

See: One finger white head which dissipates quickly. Clear golden orange colour. Big carbonation bubbles. Smell: Citrus and subtle spice aroma. Clean and sharp hop notes. Taste: Malty base which is initially sweet quickly gives way to sharp, piney hop flavour which lingers at the end of each mouthful. Pallet: Carbonation not as high as expected with the big bubbles racing up the glass. Definite fizz to the beer but pleasant. Fairly short finish to the flavour but it is citrus sharp and sucks your mouth in. Dry finish. Light body but resinous texture. Drank this one chilled out of the fridge so the flavours might have been dulled slightly but overall a very refreshing beer. Not a heavily hopped American style IPA but pleasantly sharp and dry with a balanced malt base.

foxo82 (680) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Stourbridge. Amber with a hoppy ginger aroma. Tastes like an English bitter - long bitter finish - but with slight fizz to the feel. Ok.

Graham77 (231) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 26, 2014
355ml bottle from Tesco. From my limited experience of US beer Id say this has a typical US IPA flavour but I have definitely tasted better. Quite drinkable but really not great.

Silvan7 (658) - Samarate, ITALY - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle @ home. Ambrata, limpida schiuma beige abbastanza grossolana abbastanza persistente. Aroma floreale, di miele d’acacia, caramello, biscotto al burro, malto. Gusto abboccato all’ingresso di miele e caramello, poi abbastanza amara, scorza di pompelmo decisamente luppolata. Poco corposa, abbastanza carbonata poco calda equilibrata, abbastanza armonica.

martinrumsam (499) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber with transient white head. Aroma a little musty and bready. Bitter taste but not the hop profile you expect from an American IPA due to the chosen hop variety. A let down.

I should have looked more closely at the label. I saw "American Craft Beer" and failed to spot "fuggles". Don’t get me wrong, it’s a decent traditional _British_ IPA, with good bitterness and well-balanced malt. But to call itself "American Craft" is, in my opinion, disingenuous. If it wasn’t for that I’d score it 2.9 overall

Scopey (6325) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle from tesco. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is grainy, grass, mild sweetness, earth and straw. The taste is grainy, dull bitterness, grass, florals, some sweetness and earth with a dry finish. Light-medium body and average carbonation. Fuggles IPA? No thanks. Really basic stuff.
