Default Lagunitas Pale Ale recipe?

Partook of my first Lagunitas Pale Ale yesterday and I'm in love. The hop aroma and flavor is fan-freakin-tastic. I'm guessing the bulk of the hopping is late addition. If anyone has any insite for a recipe or at least the hops used I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

Wayne

I've never seen a reliable recipe for Dogtown, but the CYBI guys did their IPA recently.

Thanks MalFet. I've come across the IPA a bunch during my searches for it. I like that the Pale isn't so bitter. The beer tastes exactly like it smells. Love it.

Me too. I've not been bold enough to try to recreate it. If you are, and if you have any success, please post back.

I don't have a lot of experience with hops so I really can't pinpoint what's in it. Hopefully someone has a nose for it and can tell me what hops they think are being used.

The virtual tasting video on the website says that apricot and raspberry come from the hops with crispy/crackery malts. Wish I could translate

According to Lagunitas, this beer is "made with 43 different hops and 65 various malts".
Have fun with that.

EDIT: My Apologies this is for the IPA, not the Pale Ale.

That's insanity!! I can't believe no one has tried to recreate this. I don't think the malt profile would be too hard. The beer is plenty malty but hop flavor is definitely the focus.

Have you tried emailing them? They are quite open about other beers, don't see why the pale would be any different
