COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is not the original Pale Ale as brewed in far away 1993 in the back of the Old House of Richards Building in West Marin hamlet of Forest Knolls right next to little Lagunitas. It is way better. Back then the beer tasted like broccoli and kerosene and the carbonation ate right through and drained your stomach into your gut...

Started with this one on the morning of Christmas on a hot NZ summers day. Nicely fruity and aromatic. Looks lively and golden in the glass and has just enough bitterness to keep you on your toes. An awesome replacement for your morning coffee

willisread (2212) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 12, 2015
Tap at Watering Hole. Pours a clear gold with no head. Grapefuit and pine resin aromas with some light biscuity malts in the background. Bitter on the palate with good citrus notes. Average carbonation and body that hides the 6% abv fairly well. Finish is citrusy and bitter and lingers. Very solid.

Golden body with decent amount of head. Aroma is mostly citrus and pine notes. Taste is dominated by citrus with pine and some herbal flavours. Medium bitterness, good aftertaste. Would drink again.

bottle at home from McHughs
pours lightly hazy pale amber rich sherbet and pine on nose, fruity, quite malt-forward with hemp and citrus notes, moderate bitterness, easy drinking clean pale ale

Andrew196 (1355) - Katy, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Pale gold in color, thick creamy white head. Aroma of tart apple, grain and west coast hops. A thin mouthfeel, great hop profile, typical Lagunitas style with a dry finish. Left me wanting more though, good flavor but something was missing to pull it all together.

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Poured into a snifter. Deep golden pour with ample head and lace. Aroma is some fruit, light citrus, pasture, and hay. The taste is rather muted with some farm grains, hay, and pine with slight orange. Nothing exciting.

Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Snifter at home. Pours a slight hazy orange with a thick white head. Good lacing. Aroma of light citrus, earth and malts. Taste is excellent with well balanced hops and malt. you get a little citrus and pine. Very fresh tasting. medium mouth and carbonation. Finishes clean.

neongolden (1147) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2015
(355ml bottle from Systembolaget, bb 06/2016) Pours dark gold with a small white head that fades without lace. Aroma sweetish pale malts, some grain, faint orange and grassy hops, little macro corn thing. Palate is sweetish pale malts and grain, orange juice and pith, pink grapefruit, pine and grass, a bit doughy. Bitterness on the lighter side, grapefruit and pine, some grain in the finish. Iced tea too. Feels like cascade hops. Lightish body with little carb. Not the freshest, typical in Sweden I guess, but also not particularly inspiring either. Lagunitas has better pale ale-type beers than this.

Maltser85 (358) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - SEP 22, 2015
Good pour with a slightly off white head. Tropical aroma gives way to floral notes, sweet malt. Taste is tangerine, sweet malt, slight pine. Dry finish, light body. Slightly dangerous @6.2%...extremely drinkable.
