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...

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2012
One of the best pale ale out there, could sub for an IPA for fair weather drinkers. Beautiful golden orange color with a small white head leaving a good amount of lacing. Aroma is very fragrant with floral and pine notes. Flavor is similar to nose with a big, bold and brash taste. A bitter sweet finish, literally. A good west coast pale.

Pours a nice golden brown with little head that dissipates. Smells of citrus and pine, and has the same hoppy taste. One of the best pale ales on the market

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 21, 2012
355ml bottle. Pours bright copper with white head, solid lace. Big spruce hops nose - bigger than a lot of IPAs. Not quite as hoppy in the mouth but enough to tell you these guys are all about hops. Solid and refreshing.
