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!

look: 1.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

did not enjoy this one at all, tons of sediment and "floaties" when poured into a Glass. weird head that dissipates in some places and retains in others, no lacing. smell was decent, smelled very floral and citrusy, but also smelled of metal/tin. taste was not good and did not follow the smell, almost zero sweetness and all bitterness, especially from the Blood Orange flavor. but it wasn't the west coast hop-bomb bitterness that we all love. not sure if something was wrong with the bottle I got, but this one eventually got drain-poured for me.

Bitter on the tongue with a slight aftertaste of unsweet fruit and greenery. There was just nothing pleasant about the taste of this brew.

Looks really cool, with tons of stuff floating around. Some might object, but I like it.
Smells sweet/bitter/sour, IPA-ish, maybe grapefruit juice.
Tastes too much like a screwdriver (OJ + vodka). I don't like screwdrivers because they make me think of rotten fruit. It doesn't taste much like any traditional pale ale, be it American, British, or Belgian.
Feels like really strong orange drink plus booze and some mild carbonation.
Overall, this was not just gross, but also expensive. I don't know why this has so many positive reviews. I suspect that most Lagunitas fans haven't really explored what else is out there (this is based more on conversations with actual Lagunitas fans than on the beer's bafflingly high score).

All that said, Lagunitas makes the best IPA that you'll find at many a SoCal gas station after 1:00 AM, and their High Westified Rye Ale is an unbeatable value at less than 15 bucks per 22. Unless you're experimenting with extra money, steer clear of this offering.

Pours golden with light head with decent lacing. Smells and tastes like bitterness, really off putting.

I was disappointed, super hazy deep amber color with lots of floaties, nose wasn't great either, blood orange was prominent, medium mouthfeel, dry finish. Won't be buying again.

This one didn't do it for meā€¦the nose was promising with some inviting citrus scents but the taste reminds me more of an especially sour grapefruit mixed drink. I could tolerate, or even enjoy the tartness with a thicker mouthfeel and a stronger presence of other flavors, but the product I've tasted is too one-dimensional for me to find much enjoyment in it. Glad I passed on a sixer of this.

Been wanting to try this for over a year now..... So disappointed by this! Aroma is incredible when it's poured into a glass. The taste however is kinda bland, and don't think the blood orange juice added mixed well with pale ale, like your drinking a dog town pale ale with a blood orange juice shot chaser and made the finish almost sour! What a waste of $13! Oh well.

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,

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

Pours out to a hazy light golden forming a small limp head with poor retention and minimal lacing. The nose isof of cat pee, pineapple, papaya, and pine . Mouth feel is somewhat watery for the original gravity, medium bodied. The taste opens up with pine and cat urine and then in the middle there is a very subtle orange note with pineapple followed by a strong pine bitterness. The aftertaste is dry and quite bitter.

I am not really digging this one. No malt character, too better and has a weird watery mouth feel. I like almost everything that Lagunitas does but this one is a miss for me . Not recommended

12 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy pinkish orange with a big bubbly white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet wheat malt and orange creamsicle.

The flavor is sweet fruity orange with some resiny grassy hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a decent fruity hoppy pale.
