"Pugsley’s Signature Series is named after Shipyard Brewing Company’s master brewer, Alan Pugsley.”

To fully experience all the flavors, this beer is best enjoyed at 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

Tmoney99 (12746) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Bottle from Keg Liquor. Poured a clear copper color with a average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus and malt aroma. Medium body with a slick dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a very drinkable beer and my expectations where met.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2009
Dark amber with a rocky light tan head. Citrusy aroma but also some sweet caramel malt. The bitterness on the flavour remind me, at first, of extra strength cough lozenges. Not in a bad way, mind. I swear there are medicinal flavours skulking about that remind me of Fernet Branca. Thick, caramel malts kick it off with a tinge of sweetness and then the bitterness and all sorts of stuff rolls in. Well, this one won’t be accused of not having body to carry the bitterness.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2009 Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a clear amber with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma of pine, malt, and fruit. Flavor is malty, pine, citrus, faint sweetness. Mouth feel is medium-heavy body with high carbonation. Overall, not bad at all!

hapjydeuce (990) - Carlsbad, California, USA - SEP 7, 2009
22oz bomber. Pours a clear copper color that produces a brilliant white head and a load of lacing that coats the glass throughout drinking. Aroma is quite sweet, with lots of candy butterscotch and ripe grapefruit and medium strength hops. Flavor follows suit with a solid malt profile, a touch of apricot and more grapefruit. Finish is dry with medium bitterness. Hops are a bit lacking throughout, and a touch unbalanced. Pretty tasty.

Bottle (LCRBM 09): Clear, amber coloured, full hoppy nose combined with a distinctive malty background; solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied; lingering balanced hoppy-malty finish. Well rounded, fine IPA.......

A very nice surprise from Shipyard--much better than their regular beers. This has lots of carmel up front, a dry bitter finish with a smooth alcohol warmth at the end. Very drinkable.

Cavie (4086) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2009 Bottle courtesy of bu11zeye. Clear golden pour, large head. Sticky hops on the nose. Spicy hops, large feeling. Wow very fat hop taste. So large it’s almost spicy. Sticks to the tongue long after the swallow. Alcoholic feel on the finish as well.

Linnet (1446) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2009
Deep amber colour, small thick off-white head, lacing although less than expected. Aroma is maltier than is usual for the style, of course hops is there as well, grapefruit, citrus and pine are the notes that I can find. There is also some strange metallic notes that I usually find in Shipyard’s beers. Flavour is also less hoppy than is usual for a DIPA and reminds more of a well hopped IPA. Luckily the strange metallic notes found in the aroma is not present in the flavour and it is a Decent brew but sadly there is more bittering hop than aromatic which makes it lack complexity. Mouthfeel is average, small crisp bubbles. Serving type: bottle
