Pours a golden clear with 1-2 finger white head and heavy lacing. Bitter grapefruit hops drive throughout. Toasted, bready malt flavors. Medium bodied with sticky mouthfeel. Very long finish. Respectable Pale Ale!

Cybercat (4986) - Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Pours clear golden with a nice porcelain head. Aroma presents hoppy and fruity notes, more IPA than pale ale, but with a nice malty undertone. Flavor bursts with hoppy tones accompanied by malty and fruity notes. Body is firm and fizzy. Get barking for one!

"a nice crisp malty backbone and bitter hop aroma greet you. body and look is average, but IMHO the flavor and aroma are a step above. a good american pale."

love this pale ale from lagunitas. like all their beers, it is super easy to drink, hoppy, and nicely bitter. had out of a bottle at haymarket in chicago. pours yellowish in color.

Draft in William K in Helsinki/kamppi. Golden orangey colour. About 10 srm. Strong new world hop nose for a pale ale. Very much like founders centennial on the nose. Passion fruit, honey, bit pop corn and alcohol and strong bitterness on aftertaste. Bit too much in my opinion... Thin steady head bit krausen-like and very sexy lacing (irregular but Nice). A bit too bitter in my opinion but good beer!

Flaska från SB. Bärnstensfärgad vätska med vit skum. Dofter av grape och tallbarr. Lagom sötma matchas av en amerikansk humlebeska.

BTBF. Light orange color. Hoppy nose, citrus, sappy. Sweet notes. Flavor is dank, hops, musty notes, dry and a bit rough on the finish.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a slightly clear gold/yellow body with a one finger white foamy head, streams of carbonation are seen rising at a moderate pace, some clingy lacing sticks to the pint glass throughout the entire drink. The smell had a strong citrusy hops up front, a slight amount of caramel and bread follow up as it warms. The taste was bittersweet all the way down, wow! slight bittersweet aftertaste, crisp yet smooth finish. On the palate, it was light, sessionable, carbonated exactly the way it should be, smooth all around. Overall, wow, what a nice APA, I can’t believe I’ve passed up on this so many times and now I’ve finally had it and am kicking myself for not having it sooner.
