UPDATED: OCT 16, 2015 I originally reviewed t his beer three and a half years ago, before I really had a taste for IPA. I didnít like it at all back then. Itís funny how dramatically my taste has changed. I love this beer now, and really like super-bitter IPAs. This one isnít an imperial, but it packs a lot of punch. Itís one of my reliable favorites, and Iíve changed the numbers to reflect that. Itís bitter and delicious. Itís a wonderful IPA. Hereís what I wrote about it back when I drank stout almost exclusively and didnít care much for IPA: It looks like a glass of pee thatís been produced by someone with a vitamin B surplus, with about as much head as youíd expect on a glass of pee. The smell is freshly cut grass, grapefruit, reefer and pee. The taste is all of that, plus about a shot of pine-sol. If nothing else, it is a little sumpiní sumpiní different. Of all the beers I had this week, Lagunitas Little Sumpin Sumpin Ale is certainly the one Iím writing about right now.

Bright and hoppy with a solid kick. Grassy aroma and a light balanced mouth feel. Good summer beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

To smell this beer is like crashing into a pine tree while skiing. Itís a knotty pine log youíre trying to cut with a dull ax. Some citrus and Cheech and Chong set pieces too. Looks bright orange like a Belgian ale. The taste is a grapefruit wine Very pronounced hopping; seems a light on malts for the sake of bitterness. More than the indicated 64BUs i would think. Body is hard to tell, probably medium. A dry beer to say the least , but as it warms it becomes more approachable. Good stuff.

RyanK (273) - Rhode Island, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Pours a light gold with a lot of carbonation that makes up a bubbly white head. Smells of pineapples and tangerines as well as pine hops. Light bodied and heavy hop presence, does not have a a strong taste of alcohol. Along with the dominant hops the carbonation really excites the tongue. Next strongest is the orange, pineapple and citrus flavors. The yeast flavoring is stronger than the malt which i can barely place my finger on since this beer starts and finishes so bitter.

Bottle from ōlbutikken Copenhagen Golden hazy color, ok foam Full body & high complexity High viscosity Distinct integrated hops with pine character Very enjoyable, but a bit to much viscosity for my taste

Pours golden yellow, cloudy, big white head. Lots of floral notes and fruit on the nose. Taste has sweet citrus malts and hop, med bodied, dry, but not too bitter after taste. Balanced. Very good IPA.

banbeernot (39) - Washington DC, USA - APR 28, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2012 Very tasty with good balance of hop & malt. Pours tangerine gold with bubbly head. Sweet, citrus, hop, malt, hint of orange and pineapple on the nose. Smooth thick body with again, orange and pineapple, hop and malt taste. Long finish with dryness at the end. The sweetness can become a little tiresome by the 2nd half of the bottle. Overall, a very delicious IPA.

Soft foamy head. Appearance is a bit low-key and average.. orangey swill-like in color. Smell of fierce hops and citrus. Tastes like the aroma.. earthy citrusy hops. Carbonation is a little mellow. Aftertaste of a little grass/hay.

Originally reviewed: 7/20/09. Poured into my weizen glass a murky dark gold with a big billowy white head on top. Great retention leaves some nice sip rings along edge. Smells of tangerines, oranges, and pineapple. Wow. Big citrus notes that I was not expecting. The mouth is crisp and bubbly. Flavor is citrus with some bitter grapefruit notes melded with sweet orange flavor. Finishes slightly sweet with some sugary malts. This is a wheat ale? Blind-tasting this, I would guess itís a red or an india pale. I like this alot, but I wouldnít ever think this was a wheat. I like what they artfully did with the style though. Recommend.
