poured from a bottle fresh and cold out of the fridge. immeadiate smell is of hops and slight floral flavour. stays consistant through out the beer. perhaps a slight bitter finish but a nice full bodied ipa. as it warms up the flavour of hops really starts to shine through, though it settles nice and is smooth from start to finish

Served at Redbone's in Somerville, MA as "Dryhopped Harpoon IPA with Charlie's Homegrown Fuggles"
Golden color and mildly cloudy. Great lace left by a modest head.
Smells like a high-hopped homebrew, meaning I can detect some spent yeast, lighter malt and fresh floral hop. Very nicely balanced for the style.
Served appropriately warm, approximately 50 degrees (cask conditioned). Again the blend is very pleasant -- the hop is more mild than most IPA's but it is pronounced. This continues through the swallow and aftertaste. The body is full with an expected lighter carbonation level.

On-cask 12/3/09 at Doherty's East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a dark gold color, large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma is full of hops, along with light caramelized malts and citrus.
T: The taste is very well-balanced with a strong but not over-powering hops presence, a malt character that is hearty but not too heavy and a mild caramel & citrus sweetness. However, I didn't taste much of a difference between the "homegrown" hops and what is used in their regular IPA. The after-taste is slightly sweet.
M: Smooth and crisp, medium body, light-to-medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
D: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, I enjoyed this beer a little bit more than the regular IPA, not sure whether it was the hops that made the difference or the cask or both, but this is a very solid beer to drink for a while.
