Pours a clear golden color with a two finger bright white head which settles down to a frothy one finger lace. Lots of visible carbonation. Huge nose of piney and citric hops.
Huge flavor for a pale ale. If it had more of bite itd be more ipa like than pale ale. Incredible crisp with a medium body. Very well held together beer that thins out very slightly on the finish. Finishes extra dry. Citric juiciness up front and piney hops. Malt body is only there to hold the hops together and presents it self as grainy and corny undertone.
Not bad. Big Flavor.

Drank a few of these on New Years Eve in a pint glass..
New Dogtown pale ale looks like a pale, a light golden color mixed in with some faint yellow and orange. A nice amount of foam on top that left some stains. Smell is fairly simple and light, faint aroma hops with earth and a mild backing in malt profile. A nice array of light citrus hits the nostrils with light grapefruit, papaya, etc. Taste is a laid back pale ale, pale malt with a earthy taste and light citrus with grapefruit, mango etc, slight pine, just light tropics and light malt, that's the name of the game when it comes to the pales. Feel is light, smooth with a mild bittering that leaves instantly, comes and goes, leaving dogtown to be easy drinking, without killing ye old palate. I could drink this all day given the chance.

My brother gave me this one to try and I must say it was pretty good.
A – Deep yellow with a hint of light orange in there as well. 2 finger off-white rocky head which fades to a nice ring of bubbles around the glass.
S – Citrus (lemon/lime) hops, a little floral.
T – The hops were not over powering just a slight bitter taste which was really nice.
M – A light to medium bodied beer with good carbonation which added to the bite. Nice and dry
O – A good drinking beer that I can drink one after another. Nothing special just plain good.

A: Light golden orange with a nice frothy head.
S: Delicious smelling apple, caramelized fruits, buttery tangy orange. Aromatic flowery hops
T: Big bitter hops with just enough fruitiness and nuttiness to make this a very drinkable ale. Strong on the back of the tongue, but nicely rounded.
M: Sharp, big-bubble carbonation. I can feel the air in this one. Provides a really smooth, frothy feeling in the mouth, though, helping to bring out the floral hints.
O: Lagunitas does it again with this fantastic pale ale. I'd like to complement it with an orange wedge and see how it does... I hope I get to try this again.

A: Pours a clear golden color with lots of carbonation. Leaves lacing. Head moderate: similar to pale ales.
S: Hoppy! I love a hoppy smelling pale ale and this is it. Smell resembles an IPA that is very citrusy.
T: A bit off from the smell. Was expecting it to be extremely hoppy, don't get me wrong still hoppy for a pale ale but was expecting more from the smell. Very citrusy taste that leaves a tingly feeling. Starts off with a sort of sweet flavor then finishes extremely hoppy leaving you wanting more.
M: Very light, super bitter for a Pale Ale. Leaves mouth with a bitter tingly feeling similar to that of an IPA.
Overall, this is a delicious pale ale on the verge of being an IPA. Very refreshing, overall a great choice.
