A nice ale with a decent hopprofile. Doesnít really stand out in any way, but wellbrewed, green and very drinkable!

One of my favorite beers, great aroma and taste, very drinkable.
In my opinion its the best of Lagunitas I have tried so far.

This is one of my primary go-to beers these days. Itís a big, malty beer, nicely balanced with hop character. Good beer, good price, Iíll take another.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Usually I am not huge on ales that are this hoppy, and itís about my limit, but this was a great one! A bit citrusy but again not too much. Probably the most balanced ale, at least for my palate, Iíve tasted.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bottle. Light cold colour. The nose on this is great so much citrus and hops and the taste follows perfectly.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful brew with a citrus and tropical hop to complement a light and wheat based malt with a crisp and rrefreshing finish. The bitterness is in good balance with a burst of citrus and light pine resin. Good brew!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Mostly clear golden pour with a thick white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, fairly sweet with some brightness. Taste is soft and sweet, tropical fruit and some slight citrus zest, slightly wheaty. Some nice flavours, but not outstanding.

I really like how the sweetness from the yeast strain works with the hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Little Sumpiní Sumpiní smells of floral hops with a strong piney overtone. Its taste is a bit bitter, and not reminiscent of most other wheat beers, but itís not undrinkable, either. I donít get the sweet notes from it that other reviewers have; what I smelled and tasted were much more floral.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a golden color. About two fingers white head. Nice retention, great lacing. Maybe slightly cloudy, like a wheat beer, but not super cloudy A little lighter in color than usual for IPAs..
Aroma is tropical fruit. Thereís some melon in there too. Itís not real hoppy, but maybe some slightly floral hops on the aroma.
Taste follows the nose. Itís melon, and some tropical fruit. Not really all that bitter. I feel that the malts win out in this one. I think it leans a little more sweet.
Mouthfeel is medium light, which is odd for such a high ABV beer. It has a very clean finish. Itís hoppy, but not the bitter kind. I donít really taste much alcohol in it.
Overall, this is pretty tasty. Itís a well rounded IPA. I would certainly buy this again, and I would recommend it. The more I drink it, the more I like it.
