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...

Bottle from ck1 - thanks bro! Pours a pale orange with a bit of a foamy white head. Nice lacing. Aroma has pine and grapefruit, more sweet than citrusy. Taste is of pine, citrus and some sweet maltiness. Somewhat light but with a lot of nice flavors and quite dry. Finishes citrusy. Anecdotally reminds me of their Daytime IPA, or my memory of it. Very nice and well balanced between sweet and hoppy. Easy drinker.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2017 Draft. It poured a clear yellow with a nice white head. It had a pine and citrus aroma. It was moderately hoppy and bitter. A nice pale ale.

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.

Bought in Sweden. Saving money like a bawws. Pours Golden with a tightly packed head. Regular nos of hops, citrus. Citrus and pine aroma. Good beer.

Nonshaugen (652) - 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.

tightslice (1397) - 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.

18.10.2012, 0,35l bottle sampled @ BBGTC tasting:
Big creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet fruity, caramel malts, dried fruits, hay, leafs, wet hops, grass, hints of citrus. Taste is mild grassy, leafs, wet hops, hay, paper, grass, sap, soil, hints of light malts and soap. Medium to longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

Clear gold with a big pillowy head. Not much aroma. Taste is beer. Really don’t know how to rate this when there are no distinguishing characteristics at all. I give it a 7/10.
