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...

Pours a clear golden with moderate carbonation and a foamy, two finger head that dissipates quickly. Spicy hops up front on the nose, along with some grassy/piney hops and a bit of resin. Tongue is very similar, hops with minimal backbone. Lighter bodied beer with medium length finish. This was ok, but doesn’t stand out.

hfmejias (784) - Dover, Delaware, USA - NOV 23, 2014
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours clear, copper, nice off white head and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of tropical fruits and hops mixed with some malts and caramel notes. Taste is hoppy, fruity, and malty (in that order); typical pale ale. Drinkable, enjoyable and quite good, another solid offering from Lagunitas.

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 (1366) - 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.

På flaska från systemet Gyllengul vätska med vitt högt skum. Doftar härligt av söt sommaräng. Mjuk härlig smak med en mild beska.
