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...

awesome citrus aroma, lighter color and good amount of carbonation. taste is pretty light to start, mostly citrus. Finish is long and pleasantly bitter. Extremely refreshing beer. Not overpowering, not piney like a lot of IPA are, this APA is awesome.

Clear gold body with a generous, mostly white head. Resiny, citrus hop aroma. Nice bitter flavor well balanced. This is better than many IPAs.

Bottle from ck1 - thanks bro! Pours a pale orange with a bit of a foamy white head. Nice lacing. Aroma has pine and grapefruit, more sweet than citrusy. Taste is of pine, citrus and some sweet maltiness. Somewhat light but with a lot of nice flavors and quite dry. Finishes citrusy. Anecdotally reminds me of their Daytime IPA, or my memory of it. Very nice and well balanced between sweet and hoppy. Easy drinker.

Tap. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy spruce hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

12 oz bottle pours a clear golden color with decent white head and some lacing. Aroma is full of citrus and piney hops with some caramel malts present as well. Taste is bitter with a long finish. Body is medium with average carbonation. More aggressive than most pale ales, but I like ’em this way. This made me think of my favorite in this style: Alpha King.

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Pours white with a big white head. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, pine. Taste is similar; citrus, pine, some bready maltiness. There’s a nice bitterness here as well. This is more aggressive than most other Pale Ales I’ve had, in a good sort fo way. Smooth and drinkable, but bigger than other pales.

Bottle 355 cl. Clear amber with a frothy white head. Aroma is mostly hoppy with a little caramel and a decent dash of piney, grapefruity, lemony notes. Taste is medium sweet, cornish, with a medium body and a medium to heavy bitter finish. I am a little disappointed.

golden yellow in color, strong pine aromas very dank, the taste is mostly piney hops some citrus in the background and a decent bitterness, damn good for a pale ale.
