Aroma: Pine, hops, sweet malt. Appearance: Reddish copper w/ medium head that fades quickly. Taste: Pine, Hops, Sweet malt. Palate: low carbonation, sticky mouthfeel. Overall: Good but feels flat and not lively in the mouth. Beer needs a more dimensional taste

Bomber. Sweet citrus aroma hits the nose. Dark golden body with creamy white head and sugar coat of lace. Sweet hop citrus with some dry citrus vine flavor. Sugary sweetness and dry citrus peel aftertaste. Good stuff.

Bottle; poured a clear orange/amber color with a creamy off white head. Aroma of orange, citrus, caramel and flowers. Flavor of the same components; well balanced with nice clean flavors. Very fresh tasty. Good deal.

Honeyed gold, green dank hoppy aroma reminds me of the stoopid. Torn on this beer. Little too sweet and almost cloying, but the overall value influences my sensory perception. So. I would like the contrast better if the sweetness was more caramel and less white sugar, but overall the hops win me over with their full leafy finish.

Hoptagon (239) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 5, 2009
22oz. Bomber. In a word YES!! Another instant hop classic from Lagunitas. Pours a deceptively light straw color with a quarter inch of lacy froth. Big aroma dominated by grapefruit and pine resin. Potently bitter with a mean streak of pine resin. As the bitterness fades the hop flavors come through and have a taste of fresh tropical fruits. Plenty of malt to keep the beer from being one dimensional. Palate is a bit thicker than I expected and the texture is sticky and resinous. That 8% ABV is hidden unbelievably well. This beer is boldly flavorful, crisp and refreshing. Everything Iíve come to expect in a good IIPA. The hop flavor is eerily reminiscent of the Hop Stoopid, but this one has a sharper bitterness.

Bomber, from BOTW, split with a lucky friend. Bubbly looking, slightly cloudy, thick white foam. Big grapefruit nose. Palate is mostly the same but decently balanced. This has heavy heavy hops kick, but wasnít too much for me. By the way had a very nice lush mouthfeel.

Lagunitas a Little Sumpiní Extra! Ale is clear and dark golden with a thin white film that leaves tenacious foam on the glass. Itís sweet and sugary smelling, with notes of dark fruit, maybe plum. Itís smooth, sticky and pretty full bodied with a sharp finish. Itís pretty huge. Itís sweet and quite bitter. Thereís a peaty note in there. It has a long juniper finish. Wow. Itís bold.

22 oz Bottle. Peach amber color with fluffy egg colored head. Nose is sweet and dry. Light mango/tropical fruit sweetness. Taste is similar to other Lag brews. Has the fruitiness and bit-o-funk like early Hop Stoopid, and I love hop stoopid. I wanna do a side-by-side with sumpin sumpin and Hop Stoopid to figure out specifics.

22 oz. bottle purchased at Top Foods in Edmonds, WA. Pours a hazy amber color with a very foamy off-white head. Aroma: Pine, grass, and a hint of citrus. Flavor: Bold hops, grapefruit peel, and resin.

Bright,fragrant,pine and citrus hop aroma , exhibits all that s wonderful about the fresh hop essence,flavor is hop dominated with bitter hopping really showing off,and the tangy grapefruit rind tangerine,piney tar flashing its colors in a fireworks of flavor,just the slightest hint of malt sweetness ,also of a fruity nature as backing, one of the best hop brews I have tasted this year,and with its 4 dollar price,this has to be what Consumers Report would call the "Best Buy" of the year
