Taking the pale in Pale Ale rather far this had a near yellow like copper color and a weaker head than expected.

Light hop aroma and a substantial tea leaf nose this had aromas of lemon, pine, biscuit and bread.

The flavor seems spot on for the style as the balance of hops and malt is stellar. Slightly bitter at the finish this keeps a blend of tea leaf, barley, pine, floral hop cone, lemon and bready like flavors.

You just can't go wrong with Lagunitas when it comes to nailing a style.

Bottled July 18, 2014

clear orange, frothy 2 finger head.

Subtle orange and caramel malt in the nose. Nothing too strong. Nice for an APA.

Good balance of sweet sugary caramel and semi bitterness. Some mango and orange. A good toned down blend.

Moderate carb, moderate body, slicker than expected.

Good APA. Has that signature lagunitas backbone with all the typical hoppiness toned down a few notches. Hits the category well.
