Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.90%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
We took some fresh Sanguinello Blood oranges, juiced 'em, concentrated that juice (without heat) and threw it into a wheatier version of our New Dogtown Pale Ale. The end result? A refreshingly hopped pale-ish ale with a huge citrus burst!

From the 12. fl. oz. can with a very difficult to read stamp on the neck but it may go back to December 2016. Sampled on July 1, 2017.

The pour is light amber-yellow with a white head that lingers for a spell. Decent looking.

The aroma brings out an herbal character more than a citrus character but that could be that my bottle is becoming a malt bomb at this point.

The body is not bad and in the medium range.

The taste tends to lean malt forward with an herbal finale that is reasonably clean. I bet this was better 5 months ago,

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking golden color. Beautiful transparency allows light carbonation to run up at a moderate pace. Slim finger’s worth of white foamy head dissipated at a nice pace. Light messy lacing sticks all around the glass. The smell had a sweet blood orange juicy citrus bitterness running into subtle bitter grassy to grapefruit tones. The taste was basically the same with a subtle dry to wet citrus aftertaste sliding into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a spectacular sessionable sweet sticky feel to it. Carbonation runs fairly light allowing the sweetness to be some of the stickiness all about it. Still, a nice smoothness all about. Overall, the hype is real, this was so damn good. Wish I had a couple more bottles.

As a big fan of Lagunita's I had to try this one. Recently started discovering blood red IPA's and this is very much that. Classic Lagunitas hoppy undertone but image with orange mixed in. Fantastic beer.

Reviewed from (long-standing) notes. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into an El Catador teku glass.

A: Mildly hazy but rich gold for style. A good amount of visible carbonation and a finger of white head fades relatively quickly. This looks pretty in the glass.

S: Dank and citrus up front. Some tropical fruits, grapefruit, and lychee. Pale cracker malt body. Not huge but pretty decent for an APA.

T: Dank and citrus up front again, with a solid backbone of tropical fruits, lychee, and melon hops. A light biscuity sweetness from the malts, but they mostly stay out of the way. It finishes with a fairly significant bitterness (especially for an APA), with more dank and grapefruit rind.

M: A light body, and carbonation sensation is a touch on the low side. Low alcohol overall, but maybe a bit pronounced for style.

O: I really enjoyed this one. It's nothing crazy or complex. But it’s clean with a nice hop profile, a malt bill without grainy flavors and a nice bitterness. I really dig this one. I wish it would be a canned in a six pack next time around.

Almost clear, dark yellow beer with a three finger high, white, fluffy head.

Nose: Lemon, blood orange, citrus, malt, grapefruit and passion fruit.
Taste: Fresh squeezed orange juice, lemon, caramel malt, blood orange and grapefruit.
Mouth: Medium body and carbonation. A nice bitter mouthfeel. Smooth and juicy.

This is a Limited Release from Lagunitas but I shure want it to come back! This is really good and refreshing. The blood orange juice and the wheat version of New Dogtown Pale Ale works great together!

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear medium golden pour. 2 fingers of foamy white head leave great lacing. Lots of sediment on this pour.

S: Citrus.. blood orange and grapefruit.

T/F: Malt sweetness mingles with a strong blood orange/citrus flavor. Modest hop bitterness... a bit of pepper and floral character but mostly bitter citrus to offset the sweet malts. Medium in body... well carbonated. Finish is blood orange with a refreshing citrus aftertaste.

O: I'm not a huge fan of the 'citrus' IPA's that seem to be sweeping the market, but this is definitely on the top end of that heap. Well done, and definitely a Lagunitas brew (not a bad thing). I wouldn't want a steady diet of this, but it was a nice change of pace and they hit what they were aiming for.

Light gold color with big fizzy head and streaky, bold lacing. Aroma is big with fresh squeezed orange. Taste is very crisp, alcohol hidden well with flavors of orange, light lemon and citrusy hops. Super clean tropical finish
