4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

What a great pale ale. I love my pales juicy upfront and slightly dry in the finish and that’s exactly where new Dogtown Pale comes through. Very drinkable and interesting, you can’t go wrong.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear gold body with a short white head. Clean aroma of Cascade hops, pale malt and a small touch of caramel malt. Medium body, frothy carbonation, good malt support, good malt acid, medium+ bitterness. All elements well-expressed and in balance. Crisp, hoppy, a little fruity and a faint bit if pine resin / sap. All around respectable beer, I only wish it were around 5% instead of 6%.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle, 5.9 % abv, from Systembolaget Luleå, via Gaute. Airy white head creating good lacework to the glassware. Clear copper coloured body. Solid hoppy aroma, fresh and fruity with grapefruit to the fore. Taste is also fruity followed by citrus peels and a little touch of pumpkin. Dry, bitter end. Rounded and easy to drink. Morish (shared with Finn, Tromsø 29.05.2013).

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an orange-gold with a thick white head. Aroma is pronounced pine & candied citrus rind. Taste is awesome. Strong pine resin and nonspecific citrus up front and in the mid palate. A really likeable hoppy bitterness creeps in for the finish. One of the best pale ales I’ve had.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle served in a lager glass.
A: this has the powerful hop aroma of an IPA, or even a DIPA. The aroma has some citrus but more herbal/earthy elements in it reminiscent of skunky weed ... uh, from what I’ve heard.
T: plenty of hops in the flavor too. Again, nicely herbal with some grapefruit in the aftertaste. Very enjoyable.
M: Medium body with a hint of syrup; medium carbonation; some warming and harshness from the alcohol (and hops?).
O: A very tasty, highly hopped APA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromas of biscuity malt and plenty of citrus hops with a hint of floral/grass. Pours clear dark yellow/golden with a fluffy white head that lingers a bit and leaves lacing. medium/lt body and smooth with a dry finish. Well balanced and has ample hop bitterness for a pale without being overbearing. Bitterness has as aspirin note in the finish, but not too bad. Overall a very nice pale, but i expect nothing less from Lagunita at this point.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff juni-13: her er det mye aroma og smak å glede seg over. God balanse, passe bitter. Deilig og med litt sødme (tropiske frukter) mot slutten. Lagunitas skuffer aldri.
