3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice golden color with a average sized white head. Tons of citrus flavors and floral hops on the nose! Slightly grassy. Flavor is similar with a little bit of malty backbone peeking through. Extremely smooth and refreshing - a perfect little sumpin’ sumpin’ for a hot summer afternoon.

Quite decent in IPA land. Huge orange nose and a load of citrus through the body (less pine than many IPAs). Very strong finish, building uncomfortably for me but still decent. A sweet edge makes it appealing in a DIPA kind of way. Drinkable.

Bottle… Clear golden ale with a small, wispy, white head. The discreet aroma is of toffee and earthy, citrusy hops. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor bends just a touch toward the sweet side of balance. A huge caramel malt backbone outshines all kinds of citrusy, piney hop bitterness. Lengthy, bittersweet finish… the sweetness finally fades while the bitterness lingers on and on and even numbs my tongue a bit – like Novocain.

Botella. Unclear golden orange colour with a nice white steady head. Hoppy flowery fruity aroma. Good mouthfeel indeed. The flavour is fresh and hoppy with flowers, fruits, a pleasant dry bitterness and some pine. Tasty brew indeed.

Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is bigtime fruityness along with some flowery notes as well as grass. Also some earthyness. Flavour is much the same along with some mild alcoholic notes. Very wellbalanced and nice IPA.

The aroma is very hoppy with pineapple pine and grass. The aroma also has caramel malt. The appearance is amber gold with a foamy head. The flavor is just like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a good beer.

Had to taste this given the name alone - turns out it brought a smile to my face as I savored the contents. Share a little sumpin with your beer buds.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a honey orange with a decent head. Lots of hops on the nose - way more than I expected in what claims to be a wheat beer - slightly earthy, but mostly just nice and crisp citrus hops. Ooooh - this might be one of my new favorite "I don’t want anything crazy" brews - hop-forward, with a bit of a bite to the bitterness up front, then smoothing things over with the lightly toasted grain / wheat notes, and finishing with a citrus zing. Perfectly refreshing after a day’s work - exactly what I wanted.
