4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice clean aroma of pine hops, some wheat and malt. Curiously light in appearance with a giant white frothy head. Tastes hoppy but not bitter. Again, very clean with just enough malt to balance out the hops. Palate is slick, carbonation does not take over. Very well done.

The aroma is off the charts with tons of citrusy, west coast pine. As it warms, the malt underbelly is more apparent. The taste is good with plenty of juicy hop character; however, the sweetness of the malt is slightly over the top for me. It adds a complexity, but I think the strength and power of the malt notes carries too much throughout the brew. Overall, it’s pretty good, but there are better imperials out there. I like the regular little sumpin sumpin much better.

12 oz bottle.
Generous, durable head leaves soapy lacing. Deep amber color.
Aroma and flavor are reminiscent of Sucks, but milder and with less amlt and lighter malt. Similarity to Sucks is, of course, a very good thing. Hops are mainly citrus and herbal but some floral and a touch of pine too.
Medium body with crisp, lively and rather high carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Jaune avec un petit tête blanc. L’arôme est très belle, du orange, pamplemousse et citron. Le goût est d’abord un peu amer, puis les agrumes et un très peu du sucre du malt, ensuite une amertume moyenne (pour le style) en finale avec les agrumes. Ce n’est pas sucré, plutôt un peu sec. Une bière très belle!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pouts deep yellow golden with nice size off white head. Aroma I sweet malty wheat mango and pine. Biscuit malty with some sweetness: not overpowering the hops but noticeably more than Little Sumpin'Sumpin'. Mostly piney but also tropical fruit mango hops. Bitter piney floral finish. Great example of a DIPA. Significantly more mouthfeel and malty than Sumpin'Sumpin.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, poured into a stemmed tulip. The aromas are tropical and warm caramel with a touch of sugar, light spice, and herbs. The beer pours crystal clear with a honey color and has a soft, pillowy white head. It leaves a light fuzzy surface with a medium fluffy ring and a good sheet lace. The taste is a medium high bitter with a medium sweetness. The texture is creamy with a medium-full body and a ample fuzzy carbonation. There’s citrus peel, herbs, spice, and resin nicely blended together in the mouth with a dry, light lingering finish and a mellow spicy, resin, astringent aftertaste.

Bottle at Antenna America. Aroma is malty, bit of dirty hoppiness, can smell booze. Taste is bitter, malt forward, tickles the throat but feel like it’s dangerous. Not so exciting though like my other sumpin’ experiences. Not much there for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2014 Gold,light head,lace. Sweet fruit hop aroma. A little milder aroma than sumpin sumpin it seems. Maltier.Bigger but I think I like sumpin sumpin more. Bite in the finish. Not really into the bigger styles as much sometimes that said still like sumpin sumpin more than this, its more gorgeous in full hop nature.
