New Dogtown Pale Ale, Lagunitas Brewing Co., Petaluma, CA

OK I admit it, if I am not driving the Lagunitas bandwagon, then I am riding shot gun. I am a huge fan of their beers. In fact if I were stuck on a deserted island and could only choose one brewer, I’d be hard pressed to choose between Lagunitas and Dogfish Head. The New Dogtown Pale Ale did not disappoint and has reaffirmed my devotion to this brewer. The Dogtown is on the lighter side of pale ales. It is very smooth. I would characterize the bitterness as unassuming, it’s there but chilling in the background. The flavor of the beer is definitely a combination of apples and hops, with the apple flavor paramount. The beer has a 6.4% ABV which is no joke. I give the New Dogtown a 4.0
