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...

Some pale ales are just eh to me, but I really like the style when I find a good one. This is up there with the solid APAs. It's not as malty and/or hoppy as some of the other lags, but thats assumed with pale ales. Still has a good hop bite at the end, but not as bitter as an IPA, and not as citrusy either. Clear light orange appearance, the color of their IPAs, maybe a little lighter and definitely more watery (less malt). Smooth mouthfeel because of this......6.4% decent kick too for a pale ale. I would get this again, for daytime or filler beer....but nothing super exciting here compared to all their other beers that they brew.

DraftDodger (1957) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2018
Copenhagen 30/1-2018. 35,5 cl bottle from Meny. Sad looking Dog on the label together with Lagunitas' slogan: "Life is Uncertain, Don't Sip!". Pours hazy orange with big white head. Settles as creamy, fluffy layer of foam crawling up the side of the glass. Substantial lacing. Aroma is strong and fruity. Sweet exotic fruit like peach and mango, resin, pine and some citric notes lurking in the background. Fairly strong carbonation and slightly thick and a little bit greasy palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by strong bitterness. A little thin. Aftertaste is bitter and finish is semi-dry. Quite ok - even though a little generic.

Dacrza (1114) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - NOV 5, 2017
DATE: November 5, 2017... OCCASION: preparing for a short week of school with a promising "new" pale ale... GLASSWARE: Howard's Pub pint... cracks and sizzles out the bottle, creating a clear golden yellow body with an upward shower of carbonation... the white head is half-finger thick, bubbly and substantial... lemon zest and light grapefruit are first to be experienced.. bread malts are toasted and palpable... as a pale, this doesn't demand attention, but it definitely doesn't disappoint either... first sip is smooth, somewhat weighty and medium-bodied--textured to the throat, and lingering once there... dry and sharp... the malts actually show up first in the flavor profile, toasted and sweet--not at all what I expected! The secondary experience is lemon, earthy resin, grapefruit, and a tropical fruit that grows in its tangibility as the glass drains... in short, another hop-forward, drinker-friendly offering from Lagunitas... definitely a toned-down profile, thought at 6.2%, ABV, still worth one's attention...

SFtaster (75) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 5, 2017
12 oz bottle from Trader Joe's. New Dogtown PA ives up to expectations for the local heavyweight in 'craft' brewing. Lagunitas didn't produce the leading IPA by chance, and this beer is another solid example of their skill. Nice balance between tart citrus/piney hops and light malt. My favorite pale ale will always be Sierra Nevada, but it's nice to sample a different take on the West Coast style every now and then.

Nonshaugen (709) - Fetsund, NORWAY - AUG 7, 2017
355 ml, bottle conditioned. Quite clear, light golden amber,thick white head, lively carbonation. Aroma is citrusy and fruity, tropical notes. Mouthfeel is sharp, bitter and dry, nicely carbonated. Taste is like a stronger version of the aroma, just delicious!! The best Lagunitas beer I’ve had so far, it’s even better than the Maximus.

3.8
tightslice (1542) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 5, 2017
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is grass and grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit and grass. If you like grapefruit and you like grass, this is for you.
