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.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Bottle. Yellow - gold pour. Aroma is spices, vanilla, some yeast. Flavor is slightly sweet at first, but the spices and yeastiness take over and are slightly bitter. A little harsh on the palate too; reminds me of the yeast in some of the early bottles from the bruery.

Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 4, 2010
22 oz bottle from New Seasons - Pours an orange-yellow color with a nice pillowy head. Very hoppy scent. More on the citrus side than floral. A little citrus on the flavor, too, but not too Belgiany... Nice beer with a big kick.

thegreenrooster (3371) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Pour is a golden with a foamy white head. Aroma is a very nice pine hop with a equally nice Belgian yeast. Flavor is sweet malts with a nice hoppy backbone and again that Belgian yeast makes an appearance. Very flavorful and Belgiany. Also Lagunitas is always easy on the wallet so this makes this one something to look for.

brigg (529) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 4, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2011 (bottle) Clear orange amber body and a big white head. Strong hop aroma, floral and lemon grass and moderately sweet with notes of fruit (grapefruit, and slight peach, strawberry), buttery. Full bodied, soft and creamy mouthfeel. Sharp bitter hop bight; pine and grapefruit with a long aftertaste, but sweet, too, with a touch of honey.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Draught at Delaneys. Pours copper with a white head. Smells of warming alcohol, resiny. Tastes resiny with some caramel notes and a bitter finish. I never would have guessed that a Belgian yeast strain was involved here.

evr1dr (145) - Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Pours golden with thin ivory head that leaves a decent lace. Nose of Belgian yeast, pine, some citrus, honey and resin. Taste of orange peel, more yeast, hint of lemon, and bananna. Taste like a cross of a belgium strong and a west coast IPS. Very nice.

pintbypint (2750) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 3, 2010
650ml brown bottle. Pours clear and golden in colour. Thick white foam. Spotty and patchy lacework. Earth, citrus and some barnyard aromas. Citrusy flavour with a slight touch of funky yeast. Finishes with bright grapefruity hops. Moderate bitterness with sharp grapefruit aftertaste. medium body, crisp and lively carbonation. Cleaner taste than expected but enjoyable.

juiceisloose (1055) - Windermere, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Draft at redlight. Pours a mostly, dark golden color and crowned by a well retained head of off white foam. Sticky flares of lacing hold tight to the glass. The aroma is focused on the orange and grapefruit hop bitterness along with notes of grass and pine. The base is that of sweet toffee and bread malts that come across dry from the help of the belgian yeast. The flavor follows and is quite hoppy and fairly dry from the belgian yeast profile. Orange and grapefruit citrus hops are the focus to go with the dry, fruity yeast and the toasted bread and toffee malt base. The body is nearly full with moderate carbonation and a slightly sticky, sugary mouthfeel. The resinous hops lend a lengthy, bitter finish. This is a tasty belgian style ipa.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Clear golden orange, thin white head. Hop forward sweet aroma, light pepper, earthiness, and belgian funk. Has a strong sweet hit at the beginning, almost honey-ish, becomes a little funky and earthy, finishing with some pepper, fruity citrus, and resinous hops. Body is light and a bit viscous. Nice complexity, though it comes on a little strong with the sweetness.

Tell ya what... this is one clear-looking beer, yellowish-orange, with an off-white head that’s a little difficult to form. Not all too impressive to the eyes, but this beer hits you in the nose before your eyes even bother with it. The aroma is strong, grainy and sweet with moderate and spicy hops. At first sip you experience a sweet and sour pucker in the center of your top lip, followed by a sour grain flavor reminiscent of rusty metal and an oddly bitter finish. Light-bodied, but strong on the tongue, this little sumpin of a sucker packs a big punch. Hops poke through the bitterness a few ounces into the beer, adding a deliciously spicy experience to the drink. Unique, well-crafted, and deliciously bitter.
