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...

Sampled at taproom. Yellow with white head. Not much nose at all - some hops, and a bit artificial. Starts slightly bitter, nice dry finish. Not terrible but not good either.

Pale ale?? More like INDIA pale ale. Very hop forward with a citrus and pine saturated aroma. Some caramel malt in there too. Taste was pretty much the same. I liked this one quite a bit.

Draft at the Federal. Got a half-pint; love bars that offer those. This was pretty good. Piney and citrusy, with a little bit of butter.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2012 Draught from blind tiger, a somewhat coppery golden pour, mild head, aroma is hops, a pretty standard pale ale, a bit on the piney side. Good.

Ugh! First of all this is NOT a pale ale it is an IPA. Almost all Lagunitas beers are hop forward. I love hoppy beers but not beers made with extracts. I have talked with the brewers and they admit to using hop extracts. You can taste them in the majority of their beers. It’s like fake beer! Chemical tasting. I really really hate extracts! Come on guys can’t you taste this phony ass shit.

Clear light golden color with a white head. Flavours of citrus and light cookies, very drinkable and refreshing. Some general fruitiness follows the lemony citrus to broaden the taste and make it a bit more interesting.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 18, 2011
Single bottle purchased from Trackside Liqour in Medicine Hat, AB on 06/18/2011. Colour: Light yellow, with low but resiliant head. Nose: Pine needles baked into white bread, malt vinegar, fresh green grass. Taste: Light sweet, medium bitter, light sour. Abundant hops and lots of vanilla back play. Decent but a bit soft.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with light white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is of spicy hops. Taste of pine and earthy hops. Leaves a bitterness in the finish. A bit more bitter than I like, but not bad.
