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

Very floral aroma, sweet hippy flavour but very smoothe. After taste is very sweet and sugary

22oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass. Bottled on Aug. 31st. Its been in my fridge for over a month so hopefully it hasnít deteriorated too much. Pours a golden yellow with a solid 3/4 inch of creamy head. Lots of lacing. Quite a bit of carbonation. Looks awesome. Sweet candy malt and sharp, bitter hops on the nose. Smells like a Belgian triple and an imperial IPA (can you say Le Freak). Very smooth, almost creamy texture but not heavy. Lighter bodied than I expected. Very drinkable. The taste is very well balanced. For such a unique beer, there is nothing really overpowering about it but it maintains an appealing complexity. I get hit with the sweet malt and the spicy quality that must come from the yeast. Then the resiny hops come in and linger through the finish but they donít dominate, they just add an extra dimension to the flavor profile. Okay, Iíll say it: this is a great beer. Very well crafted.

Pours clear amber with a nice dense lightly soapy head. The aroma is beautiful with fresh juicy hops that are floral, piny and herbal. There is also a toasted malt presence, caramel and the Belgian yeast has dry fruit and a smooth light barnyard thing going on - great. Medium rich body that has a nice lushness to it and and frothy carbonation that feels like itís coating the tongue with hop resin. The flavor starts with earthy yeast, smooth fruitiness, rich caramel and tropical fruitiness from the hops. The finish adds more pine from hops, resin and butterscotch. The finish has an earthiness that seems to be a blend of the yeast and hops. I love this beer. So good.

On tap @ 1702 and 22 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a crystal clear amber color with a medium size off white head. Nice thick lacing. Aroma is floral hops, esters, and very light yeast. Flavor is much of the same with the addition of some lightly sweetened toasted malt. A smooth, medium bodied beer. Very nice. I think I like it on tap just a little better than the bottled version.

The aromas on this are intriguing and can start quite a discussion. Three people smelled this and we got three different answers. I am sticking with bubblegum and apricots. The taste is also strange. A combo of Belgian and medicinal. Still on the fence with this one.

NayTron (133) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Pours a golden amber. Smells of hops, citrus and some floral notes. Really nice hops bitterness that works into a sweet floral happiness. Some nice pine notes also. The belgian yeast is there with a small hint of bread and barnyard through the hops. Good stuff.

Draft at Coles, Buffalo NY> Very good American Belgian IPA. Belgian yeast cuts into a nice bitter American IPA. Golden Orange Pour. Bitter & yeasty aroma, floral hops. Very well made, tons of balanced flavor.

22 ounce bottle - $3.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Pours a clear, orange-amber body with an inch or so of whitish froth. Smell: Sweetish, hoppy aroma with notes of diced pineapple, white grapefruit, resinous floral, and tangerine-flavored childrenís aspirin. Punctuated by peppery spice accents and a trail of liquor. Some honey-brushed, bready wheat and pale malt hints underneath. Taste: Lightly sweet pale malt backbone along with a touch of breadiness takes a detour towards black peppercorns before heading off to the hop flavors of tangy tropical fruits and citrus fruits with an orangey hop taste perhaps derived from an inclusion of Amarillo in the mix. Very small pinch of crushed aspirin tablets. Robust bitterness. Hints of Bosc pears and florals make themselves known. Longly bitter, heated finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus body. As with the Extra, itís all at once oily and sticky on the tongue. Drinkability: The original still remains my favorite of the Sumpiní Series. Many of the Lagunitas hoppy brews just run together for me. This is good though, and, quite importantly, sold at a good, welcome price.

Wow, this smells like you just bit into a wild hop. Great. This is really good; lot of hops but a little wilder, i suppose. Excellent stuff.
