@Ginger Man-on tap-pours an off white head that laces and gold color. Aroma is earthy/pine hops, secondary medium malt. Taste is earthy/pine/then herbal/then tannin-hops, some malt. Dry bitterness. Not quite to my taste.

Funknmilla (692) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2008
Draft at Royersford...copper small off-white head...mild citrus aroma...medium carbonation....distinct lemon/grapefruit peel finish--bitter....one dimensional flavor profile, yet good...citrusy grapefruit taste, some malts but they are defiantly blanketed... I like it

On tap - Capone’s - May 2008. Why oh why did I order this? I’m not a fan of the woody and at time astringent flavor of fuggles. Not sure why I thought this would be any different. Crisp and dry with all fuggle flavor.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Draught at Phoenixville BrewPub: Aroma of hops and some citrus. Pretty faint. Poured amber in color with a small, creamy, off-white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of fruit, Fuggles, citrus, and celery. Medium body. Slightly sticky, then chalky texture. Average carbonation. Dry finish. Good, but not great.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2005
Fruity, herbal and earthy aromas with hints of citrus but nothing close to the citrus in PNW hops. Flavor is herbal and fruity and fairly clean. Good finish.

Draft at the brewery for the IPA Project. Finfing out the fuggle hops aren’t my thing. It was good for the style and had a slight bitter flavor. It’s just not favorite hop.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2004
Tap at SF IPA event. Clear orange, tan head. Hoppy aroma. Mostly hop flavor and bitterness. No real malt backbone. This did not really stand out, but there is nothing really wrong with it other than it may have been too cold to get the malt character...

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Tap. Clear amber in color with dense off-white head. Barely an aroma--a bit fruity. Very hoppy and dry. A bit darker than the others in taste.

DocLock (7913) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Another fine IPA from Brian O’Reilly. Pours copper with subdued creamy head. Firm aroma of hops, citrus, pine, and slight fruit. Tastes complex, with hopcit, subdued fruit, and some piney essence at its culmination. I think this is the first of the varietal IPAs I’ve rated less than 4, but a 3.8 is damn good. I can’t wait to sample all 9 in the same night.

Two drafts at the Abbaye. Great deep copper-carmel colored brew, no head, and no lace (disappointing for an IPA). Lots of bitter hops, not much for aromatic or flavor (fuggle or boil); barbell maltiness to "balance" the hop. Not well blended, bitter finish, almost metallic.
