On tap in a sampler at the brewpub.

The aroma is an intriguing combination of fruit and earthy, spicy hops, backed up with some malt.

It's a slightly hazy gold color, with still a little head after sitting in the sampler while I made my way through the other 5 beers. The head that dropped left some nice lace on the glass.

The hops are in front here, followed quickly by sugary malt and then a hit of bitterness. A pleasant fruitiness rounds it out. The bitterness and hop spice linger, along with a touch of alcohol heat,

Medium body and strong bitterness pump up the mouthfeel.

I can't decide if this is an American IPA with some English hops, or vice-versa. In either case, it's eminently drinkable. Not extreme, but should satisfy most hopheads, and some who think they don't like hoppy beers, too.

The Cluster Fuggle was to me more of an English IPA than an American IPA. The beer poured a clear copper with foamy white head that laced. The smell and taste were dominated by bitter hops. The taste also was a bit dry. The mouthfeel was medium body with good carbonation. Overall it wasn't too bad.

Pours a hazy deep yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, faint pine like hops. In the taste, dryer pine like hops with a note of orange citrus. A hop like bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a semi dry pine hop in the aftertaste. Really nice hops, and a good balance.

Nice rings on the glass. Color a bit simple (amber).

Hint of orange peel on the nose, but mostly malts.

Mostly herbal hops on the palate (no surprise).

Flavors not very well integrated. I pick out malt and hops separately, and there's a bit of aqueousness. Alcohol well disguised. Good carbonation.
