I've done some work recently with Crypt::OpenPGP. The interface seemed intuitive enough, but I found it challenging to work with - in part, I suspect, because I usually find it easier to understand code than docs, and tracing the code through the maze of packages was somewhat challenging.
The biggest problem I had was a hash-order dependency bug, which caused random results with recent perls. I offered the author a workaround for the particular case that bit me, but fixing it properly will need a bit of reworking of the internals.
It also didn't do everything I needed (to encrypt an arbitrary message given an arbitrary public key block) - see Crypt::OpenPGP - finding and using preferred SK algorithm for the extension I needed to achieve that.
Once I'd worked through those two problems I was able to put it into production, and have had no problems since then.
