A friend of mine spoke highly of this APA and mentioned it was one of his new favorites. Even going at this one with high expectations, I was surprised.
Wonderfully hoppy - loads of pine, citrus, and fresh overall zestiness - completely blending in with the malt background that sips smooth and not heavy. One of the most flavorful yet soft on the tongue APAs I've come across.
Word to the wise - if you're out of California/tap range, make sure you try a fresh bottle - this style and this brew especially go downhill quickly should you not obtain the freshest possible.

A - Clear bright yellow maybe a touch amber with only a slight layer of foam sticky it is.
S - Very solid pine and citrus hops bright and floral. Sweet pale malts.
T - A very good pale. You got the hops bitter yet balanced. Then you have the pale malts, grainy yet balanced. And it finishes with just enough hops to not leave a bitter taste. Nice.
M - Light to medium body. Great beer.
Overall I am kind of disappointed that I can't find this locally since I needed to order this from halftime beverage.com but at least I can find the IPA.

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.
