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...

The history behind it is so cool, adds some to the taste. Guys that have that good taste in music must now what they are doing.

Outstanding citrus/pine aroma. Brilliantly clear gold in color with a thick frothy white head. Succulently juicy flavor of limes, tangerines, sweet toasty malts and some slight melons. Rather full bodied yet crisp with a nice bitter finish. One of the best Pale Ales in the USA!

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2011 Caramely pale malt, lots of bright piney hops.
Better and fresher hop character than most American pale ale’s.

Light amber with a thin white head. Citrus notes round out the full body American hop flavors.

Awesome sweet, hoppy aroma with hints of citrus and pine! Smoth, with tastes of citrus and tropical fruits, very tasty.

Pours golden brown with a white head. Nice hop aroma. Taste: citrus/lemon, grass, clean finish. One of the better pale ales I've had. Perfect session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, many thanks to StefanSD. Láhev 355 ml. Aroma je velmi výrazně znát po karamelu s podtóny sladu a cereálií. Pěna je jasně bílá, jemná, středně vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá. Chuť je opravdu úžasná, má velmi příjemný karamelový střed s opravdu lahodným a výrazným pomerančovým nádechem, v pozadí je jemně znát zrající sýr. Finiš je příjemně kávově hořký,též lehce připomíná hořkou čokoládu a je držící. V ústech je pivo velmi příjemné, lehké, ale přesto mohutné chuti a velmi pestré, má střední říz. Celkově se jedná o velmi lahodný pale ale a musím uznat, že přesně nějak takhle, si představuji pivo co by se tímto stylem mohlo nazývat, pivo pestré chuti, lahodného aroma a vysoké pitelnosti.
