22 oz. bottle, $4.20 at Sam’s in Oct. Wow! First thing when I opened it, I got the unmistakable smell of a pineapple upside-down cake! Hazy gold to brown body, and a big spongy head. More citrus hop smell from the poured glass, but pineapple still dominates. Taste is full of, well, Sumpin’ Extra, that’s for sure. Big American citrus hops, and malt sweetness. Not from the usual pale ale malts, but between that and pilsener (I see that the Sumpin’ Sumpin’ has some wheat in it, that must be here, too). Plenty of fresh hop taste, but then the bottle is just a few months old. My IPA tulip glass just concentrates more of that lovely smell whenever I poke my beak into it. A wonderful Impy IPA, and at those great Lagunitas prices!

hoppy but not too much for my meager hop inclinations. more of a nice punch than the overwhelming hoppy of most pale ales. light and lively body with a medium citrucy bite. the hops make it a bit bitter but that’s nicely balanced by the light citruc-y.

Strong hops aroma and flavor. Hints of caramel and nuts. Nice clear, golden color with a frothy head. Medium bitter/sweet. Earthy.

Delicious, power punched flavour. The aroma is reminiscent of baked oatmeal cookies.

On tap at medi’s. Nice golden color. Citrus and hops on the nose. Very hoppy, not surprisingly. Good beer.

I liked this beer. I matched it against Roscoe’s Hop House Pale Ale. You can taste the difference in hops...Lagunitas has got a more pronounced hoppy (bitter I guess) taste. It’s also got more alcohol and I felt it after one bottle. Good stuff.

Pours a rich deep dark orange color with a small white head. Aroma is of hops, malts and spices. Flavor is of sweet malts, touches of spices, and a nice hop flavor throughout.

Bomber thanks to GT2, awesome double ipa, super bitter and hoppy, but what can you expect?

Pours with little head, very light color with more than average carbonation. Strong citrus undertones, does not bite you back. Great starter for a long night.
