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...

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2011 Bottle. The pour was clear medium orange with a small (less than 1 finger) fizzy white head that did not stick around too long and had what I would call OK lacing. The aroma was of quite noticeable of citrus and pine hops right off, with a mild caramel malt and an earthy yeast undertone with mild notes of fruit and citrus towards the end. It tasted nice and hoppy with a strong note of citrus (grapefruit) right off the bat then became a tad malty with a note of fruit and a nice strong hoppy finish. The flavor lasted for quite a while after the swallow allowing the bitterness of the hops to settle in nicely on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was medium to full bodied and very smooth and a bit dry in texture with a medium carbonation. Overall a very satisfying Pale Ale that had a nice blending of fruit, malts and hops.

IndianaRed (3483) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 6, 2016
On tap at Growler Guys Meridian Very nice clear deep orange with a thin clingy light beige head and lacing. Rather up front piney hop aroma. More Woody herbal malt flavors with a bitterness that I don’t typically characterize as fresh hop flavors. Just sharp and dry

bottle left in my fridge. Upon opening, the beer started to foam up, almost like a gusher. poured into snifter. almost no head now. ok. very clear coppery orange color. Nose is piney with a biscuit malt presence. almost like a dry dog food aroma but with hops. Taste is very pine and fruit forward. lots of hop flavor with just a touch of malt sweetness. pretty dang good.

Biroholik (689) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - APR 18, 2016
Kolor jasnego złota, całkowicie klarowny. Niezła piana tworząca liczne pierścienie. Umiarkowanie mocny aromat owoców cytrusowych. Bez szczególnych fajerwerków - grejpfrut, pomelo. W oddali delikatna nuta mięty i ziół. W smaku wyraźna ziołowość i owoce cytrusowe. Grejpfrut przeplata się z mandarynką. Goryczka ziołowa z dość trawiastym finiszem. Dość wysokie wysycenie. Początkowo wydawało się dość wodniste, potem pokazało odrobinę więcej ciała. Niezłe orzeźwiające piwo na ciepłe dni, niestety niczym szczególnym nie zaskoczyło mnie. Kolejny kapselek do kolekcji ;)
