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...

UDBeernut (1822) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2012
On tap poured into a pint glass. A: light tan amber color with a foamy 2 finger head, gobs of head retention and lacing rings S: slight citrus hop aroma, light caramel T: grapefruit and slight orange molds well with a caramel malt base. Very nice M&d: medium mouth feel, well carbonated. Not drying like some pale ales. Very easy to drink. I think this beer would make a good beer for changing of seasons from hot to cool or visa versa.

Pour clear golden with a rich white head. Tropical aromas with hints of resin and a lot of pine in the taste. A bit of caramel malt, too. Medium bitter finish.

onceblind (4472) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Clear yellow golden with a very thin white cap. Earthy floral and sweet resinous nose. Good but at this point the standard pale or India pale aroma from Lagunitas (honestly are all their pale ales essentially the same or is it just me?). Good hoppy flavor with orange rind, sweet floral resins, earthy fresh hops and a light dose of pale ale malt and light caramel tones. Crisp and hoppy and refreshing with the right amount of quaffability mixed with light pine, sturdy floral resin and citrus rind.

DinVT (12) - Vermont, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Nice hoppy beer with low bitterness. Smooth, and no woodiness. A fine cousin to little sumpin. Lagunita does it again.

tmongoose (1364) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 5, 2014
12oz bottle shared. Poured a medium bright yellow color with white head. Aroma is typical lagunitas. Medium malt base, citrus and tropical notes from the hops. The flavor holds true to form. Nice malt flavor with plenty of bitterness from the hops, lots a citrus and fleshy fruits. Overall another solid offering from lagunitas.

JanVah (159) - SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2014
På flaska från systemet Gyllengul vätska med vitt högt skum. Doftar härligt av söt sommaräng. Mjuk härlig smak med en mild beska.

Hopmaestro (157) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
Aroma of malt, oranges and citrus. The taste is fruity with a touch of peaches leading in to a strong bitter finish that hangs around for quite a while. This is a real workhorse, and there’s always a couple following me home

raymow (831) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2014
on tap at Bertucci’s - fruity & hoppy (both in a good way). It’s hoppy but not too hoppy and citrusy/fruity (possibly apricot?). Overall - very good & drinkable.

mmyohane (9) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2014 does not count
Aroma has strong mango and banana. Floral and citrus from the hops. Pours amber red with a small head that laces beautifully. Heavy bitterness from the hops that balances beautifully with the light sweetness and malty backbone. Surprisingly light body with long bitter finish.

monkeychugg55 (902) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Pale deep gold body with a fluffy white head. The aroma is a nice balance of sweet, light caramel malt American hops, and a touch of bread. The flavor is pretty much the same and finishes crisp and balanced as well. Seems like they know what they’re doing.
