COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Another Big Sister of the Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale…. Loads of Malted Wheat for a Curious Malt Foundation and a Light Color, But Our Belgian Yeast Leaves a Huge Flavor and Complexishness.

Great tasting foam! Clear orangy amber brew with a large bubbly white cap and plenty of lacing. Grapefruit, soft pine, peaches and Colton Orr just beat the piss out of Scortini. Light very light yeasty spice, sweat, oranges for aroma- that’s a lot. Tasty stuff - peaches and grapefruit sweetness dominate, richness, just enough belg style yeast to ensure I keep tasting the usual Lagunitas yumminess. Enough caramel to keep some balance, light pine, background yeast tartness and faint licorice. I really dig this beer. Smooth carbonation, incredibly easy to drink, I like the yeast here. Pretty much the standard awesomeness of Lagunitas (when applicable). Oh fuck, now I notice that is it 8.85%.

Bright copper tinged straw colored body with a voluminous frothy white head that lasts through the entire glass. Nose is very expressive with loads of grapefruit and fresh leafy hops along with spice and hay. Strong toasted bread malt body with caramel and light fruity sweetness. Some brown sugar notes and tart apple. Pine and more citrus. Smooth grainy finish. Really a fantastic drink.

This is a very good beer. Poured a light gold/orange with a big creamy white head, lacing and retained and all sorts of small carb bubbles. On the nose it is the belgian yeast and citrus hops (orange, lemon) over a sweet malt backing. Medium body with full carbonation, pricks the tongue, a most balanced finish just a little on the dry bitter side. The taste is complex and keeps coming at you. Oranges, lemons, and the associated hop bitterness along with a nice malt backbone (not big but nice) and that belgian yeast flavoring. wow.

Clear orange brown with small head. Aroma and flavor are piney hops. Aroma more sweet, flavor more... odd. Not very wild. Quite bitter. But not bad.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Tap, Patton Street Pub, Springfield MO. All afternoon Sunday happy hour, so this was a ridiculous $2.50 pint or there abouts. Shiny pale gold, coarse white head. Spicy tangerine nose with a warm oatmeal cookie backdrop. A bit of pithy quality to the bitterness, but not lingering or chewy...actually quite nice in this context. Barely a hint of the strength, slips down with just a faint peppery finish. Lingering marmalade note.

IPAsavedMYlife (346) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Pours golden, slightly hazy. Head is fairly white and thin. Both large and small carbonation. Nose has hoppy fresh notes but that’s about all. Taste is hoppy, bready yeasty. Pretty much tastes like it’s avertised. An ale with a few wheat notes and bretty from the yeast strain. Slightly more complex than a pale ale. Slight alcohol notes. Slightly lacking in the flavor depth and a little on the thin side. Fairly strong at 8.8%. Nice well made summery ale.

BillKismet (3515) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Something a little different from Lagunitas. I would call this an IPA or a heavily hopped Trippel. Luminous bronze body with a lush, fluffy cream head. Hoppy, floral nose with intriguing and mysterious perfume of yeast and musky hope co-humulone. Hoppy and musky body with caramel and fruit doing a foxtrot on the palate. Belgian Candi sugar seems evident as well. Pleasing complexity and broadly appealing.

Bottle at Theis & Mette. Clear orange coloured with a medium sized white head. Fruity aroma of spices with notes of hops, pine needles and yeast. Fruity flavour of carmel, spices amd hops with notes of pine needles and yeast. Spicy finish.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2010
Bottle. Name makes me look fro Brett. He’s not home, or maybe that’s Dave, or both. Crisp amber with a thick head and sticky lacing. Big entrancing hop nose. Depending on what you’ve been drinking in the past couple of days the flavour ranges from freakin’ tasty to amazing and shockingly hoppy and tasty. Very drinkable with quiet sneaky alcohol. Light malt and body for big hoppy ABV. At first it seems like the wrong malt choice but it grows on you and multiple bottles in a few days become more and more enticing. Flavour is light delicate malt with strong cloud of citrusy juicy hops.
