On tap at keg and kitchen. Poured into an awesome lagunitas large mouth jelly jar style glass. Golden color, tiny bubbled, medium white head. Great lacing retention. Aromas of fresh and zesty hop, grapefruit, pine, caramel. Taste is incredible for a pale ale. Juicy, funked out ipa flavors. Tangerine, cheese, fuel, great malt presence mixed in on the back side. Perfectly bitter. Best pale ale I have had on tap this year. Lagunitas never dissapoints.

From bottle...Pours transparent amber with some carbonation bubbles and a small white head. Aroma is all tree sap and apples. Flavor is much the same. AMAZING. This would make a decent offering in the IPA category -- it is bold, deiclous in your face hoppy resin, a light oily mouth feel, with little malt to interfere. I would drink this everyday. It’s THAT good. It makes my usual session IPA seem boring.

Sweet caramel, full of flavor, hoppy, dash of malts - very IPA-like for a pale ale, so not typical for the style, but still quite good.

Bottle @ BrewDog. Golden amber colour, reasonable head. Fruity hop aroma & flavour. Light with citrus aftertaste. Great one.

Bottle. Wonderful fruity hop aroma. Crystal clear gold body with slowly rising bubbles and a thin, off white head. Not a bad pale but not digging the finish. Has a bit of a fresh hop aspect but not in the ideal way. I have a bit of a pet peeve about ales that are crystal clear. They really should have a haziest that shows the beer was brewed properly and not completely filtered. Not much lace. Overall an above average pale ale.

(bottle). A golden color with thin head. Distinct hop signature with very little lacing. Fairly untraditional for this style.

12 punce bottle. Pours a brilliant copper with a hint of lingering head. Beautiful hops nose. Is mildly bitter that lingers a bit for aftertaste. Not too shabby.

Pale amber with white head. Aroma of light, sweet malt and moderate grapefruit and pine. Flavor is sweet biscuit malt and pine bitterness with some citrus. Dry, bitter finish with residual pine. Very good hop play going on. Just another solid, easy-drinking Lagunitas beer.
