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...

neongolden (846) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2015
(355ml bottle from Systembolaget, bb 06/2016) Pours dark gold with a small white head that fades without lace. Aroma sweetish pale malts, some grain, faint orange and grassy hops, little macro corn thing. Palate is sweetish pale malts and grain, orange juice and pith, pink grapefruit, pine and grass, a bit doughy. Bitterness on the lighter side, grapefruit and pine, some grain in the finish. Iced tea too. Feels like cascade hops. Lightish body with little carb. Not the freshest, typical in Sweden I guess, but also not particularly inspiring either. Lagunitas has better pale ale-type beers than this.

Maltser85 (357) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - SEP 22, 2015
Good pour with a slightly off white head. Tropical aroma gives way to floral notes, sweet malt. Taste is tangerine, sweet malt, slight pine. Dry finish, light body. Slightly dangerous @6.2%...extremely drinkable.

AirForceHops (4802) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 12, 2015
12 oz. bottle purchased at Cigarette City, Seabrook, NH. Nearly clear gold with frothy, white head. Aroma is just the same as most Laguntias, light floral and moderate pine.

Flavor is citrus rind upfront, floral notes and as always.... Pine. Funny thing is this brewer seems to have the same malt and hop profile in all their beers. (Am I imagining this?)

The main flaw with this brew is the super thin/ watery body. Not awful just watery. Now that they have sold 50% of the brewery to Heineken, this is my last beer from these folks.

TorbenJensen (1278) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2015
This pale ales powerful foam leaves an aroma pass which is absolutely fantastic. Good strong hops notes with flower and citrus rises from the glass. Tropical fruit, a little grass, pine needles and light butterscotch taste in the beginning. A little tingling on the tongue tastes along the other herbs such as mild green pepper. The hop is a pleasure for themselves. Strong hoppy citrus and floral notes characterize the aftertaste and keeps it for a long time. A very elegant pale ale, I would like to confess at the margin of an IPA. Lovely dry aftertaste. I just knew in advance that it would impress me, for it has Lagunitas done before. You must like big amounts of hops to like this.

My only problem with this beer is its aftertaste - just a little too bitter. Lagunitas have a number of better options, but it's still a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CacheManyHose (421) - HONG KONG - SEP 4, 2015
From QC. Clear orange-amber, very thin fizzy head. Smells of resinous hop, light apple and slightly spiced malt. Tastes of very resinous hop, lemon/citrus and light dry spice/pepper. Body is slick. Very resinous and flavourful (esp. in the nose) for a pale ale.

HKdIPA (489) - HONG KONG - SEP 4, 2015
Bottle from QClub at home. Clear golden honey pour with dotted head. Aroma is apple-pine hops with sweet honey malt. Taste follows. Nice and light but strong pine hop flavor and good bitterness. Smooth malt to balance. Yum. Better maybe than their IPA. Definitely get again.
