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.

Radiant light orange golden, frothy white head. Beautiful full hoppy aroma, grapefruit, tropical fruits, pine, grass, along with balancing sweet maltiness. Flavor follows. Everything is excellently balanced. Aromatic and flavorful and great drinkability. Great apa.

Light hoppiness, tropical fruit aroma. Was a little hard for me to pick out at first, but after a few good whiffs it was there. Taste is very refreshing. crisp hops, pine, fruit, satisfying.
