Ap - hazy golden-orange body with a medium white head. Retention is limited to some spotty lacing. Ar - Not a lot going extra going on here. Average smell for a pale ale. Gentle caramel malt with some citrusy hops. P - The body is light to medium and enhanced by a very fine and natural carbonation. It’s quite creamy and smooth across the palate - almost velvety! T - The rich caramel-laced malt returns in the flavor, laced with spicy and floral hops and backed by a firm bitterness that balances the sweetness and dries the bold withering finish. The end of this beer is very different from the beginning. Interesting for a beer that starts out so soft. Aftertaste is like liquid dandelions. O - Quite drinkable. I would drink this over and over again.

Hazy orange, small white head. Dry pine aroma. Generally sweetish with a lightly bitter finish. Certainly drinkable, but not one of my favorite Lagunitas’.

"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.
