Served from the bottle and poured into a standard shaker glass. The beer pours with a good 1-2cm of bubbly head that dissipates rather quickly and leaves very minimal lacing on the glass. The color is a pale amber color that reminds me of some cheap sun-bleached orange fabric. The light penetration is pretty good with some mild chill haze that clears as the beer warms a little bit. The nose comes right out and introduces itself as a big glass of fuggles. It really is like opening a package of fuggles hop pellets. It is very earthy and very vegatal like a freshly dug carrot or radish. It wasn't an unpleasant smell at all. There was also some mild sweet caramel to the background as well, but the fuggles were all over it. The tast was again very earthy and vegetal, but more like zucchini bread than the aforementioned carrots and radishes. The bitterness was smooth and easy. Mouthfeel was super-dry and fairly bitter; maybe a little too far on the dry scale. As far as an IPA goes, this is very British given the excusive use of the Fuggles hops. I really enjoy the single hopped beer concept, and this IPA really does give you a full dose of fuggles so that I will always be able to find it in a beer. That said, the vegetal side of this hops really needs something with it to cool it off.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a light brownish/tan color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is kind of mild, a bit of malts. Taste is also light for the style, malts up front, hops at the finish. Some caramel, and just a bit dry. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is drinkable and decent, but nothing special.
