The best English IPA in the states. Pugsley is truly a gift from across the Atlantic. F***ing A for Fuggles!!! seuinoz (276) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2002
a very hoppy brew
no words to describe this beer.
i really enjoyed this beer. PhillyBeer2112 (2894) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2001
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. ericmoss3799 (73) - Warwick, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 12, 2001
A very good IPA, I would buy it again if it was available here.............. TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2004
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 (2652) - 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. bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2004
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!
