The best English IPA in the states. Pugsley is truly a gift from across the Atlantic. F***ing A for Fuggles!!!

Very fresh hop aroma - slightly grassy and herbal, even almost citric. Very firm thick foamy head on top of a bright copper-gold ale. Flavor was brimming with deep fruity notes and a lingering bitter finish. Definite buttery notes - great use of yeast here. Excellent smooth mouthfeel.

On tap at Paradise Alley in Jax Beach - A very good IPA. Nice floral/citrus aroma prepares you for the hoppy flavor. Quite dry with very little maltiness. A wonderful session IPA.

Full-bodied, fruity and flavourful. And what a bitterness!

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 27, 2001
Nice nose, hop floral with a malt/yeast undertone. Start malt, the middle full as the hops start to over ride the malt, the finish hop laden and hop spicy. Big beige head and generous lace, mild carbonation, deep golden copper color is quite attractive. All in all a really nice IPA, that many will like.

The colour is clear, bright amber. The small, white foam dissolves quite fast, while making a fizzing sound. The smell is filled with... Malt! There are also tones of honey, treacle, diacetyl and a burned flavour. The carbonation is fairly strong, which makes it feel more like pilsner or soda than ale. The taste is dominated by an almost chemical maltiness with some strains of sweet, roasted flavours. The generous body is finished with a fine, very fresh bitterness with, again, some burned tones. This is an interesting and really nice interpretation of the IPA concept. Yum-yum!

Wonderful grapefruity aroma. No pine. A cloudy golden amber. Beautiful. I’m tasting light grapefruit rind. Nice. Swish this for some chewiness. Light and fresh hop finish. It is just great. It is different from, but ranks with, Bridgeport bottle conditioned IPA.

Poured into a 6" tall by 2.5" diameter glass, I measured approximately 1.5" of froth that dissipated rather quickly (within 20-30 seconds). The color of the ale is the most beautiful amber hue that one could imagine, and is, perhaps, one of the best qualities of this beer.. It is like catching the reflection of the cool autumn sun off of a beautiful woman’s curly red hair. The aroma is doughy and yeasty in my opinion, but it means business. It is telling me that this is a beer to be reckoned with. The flavor has at least 3 dimensions that I can recognize. The first 1-2 seconds there is a bitter, almost metallic taste, with some faint hints of caramel. After about 2 seconds, a malty, caramel flavor takes over. Beyond this point, the caramel flavor ascends to a more roasted caramel flavor that persists for quite a while. I drank this particular glass at about 63 degrees Fahrenheit (I pulled it out of the trunk of my car). Past experience has shown me that drinking it at colder temperatures only helps to accentuate the attributes I have previously mentioned. I find this to be one of my favorite American IPAs and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a full-flavored, full-bodied beer that is not too overpowering on the palate.
