As good as Lil’ Sumpin’ Sumpin’, maybe better. Pours a paler yellow with average head. The aroma is sweeter and cleaner than Sumpin’ Sumpin’. So is the flavor. The wheat malt is discernibly milder and more buttery, but the beer certainly doesn’t lose any of the original recipe’s bitter edge. I love it when Lagunitas releases these variants. Another slight but brilliant departure from a reliable brewery.

Such a nice beer. Hops, wheat, sweet backbone. I will remember this. A little better than the sumpin sumpin.

Pours clear golden with a small cream-ish head. Very fruity and hoppy smell. Has a strong hoppy/grapefruit taste with an ever so bitter finish. Quite good.

Pours a clear golden with a medium white head that leaves pretty good lacing. Nose is of piny hops and resin. A bit of alcohol but not too much. Taste is moderately sweet and bitter, offers more resin. Again, alcohol is felt but is not bothersome. Body is medium, carbonation moderately high and mouthfeel is a bit oily. Overall a pretty good IIPA, I’d have that again!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear amber with a frothy eggshell head. Aroma features firm hoppy and malty notes plus hints of wood and fruit. Flavor takes these up a notch, except the fruit, which goes up two notches - clearly mainly pear plus some apple. Woody hops definitely make themselves known but impart very little bitterness. Mouthfeel presents average body but some decent fizz. A little sumpin’ enjoyable!

1/2 pint on tap @ One Pint Pub. Pours cloudy golden with a medium creamy head. Aroma is malts and fruits. Flavor is malts, fruits, alcohol and hops. Disappointing but still good.

Twelve ounce bottle at my niece’s house (thanks!) on October 4, 2015. Light amber hue, nice strong hoppy/pine nose, very good well balanced flavor. A fine beer from a fine brewery. Hope Heineken doesn’t mess things up.

A very decent imperial IPA. Lagunitas once again demonstrating they know IPAs. Grapefruit with a nice caramel body.
