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.

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.

ChainGangGuy (4559) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2010
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 children’s 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, it’s all at once oily and sticky on the tongue. Drinkability: The original still remains my favorite of the Sumpin’ 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.

SanfordBrewer (1411) - Sanford, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2010
Lucent copper, dense beige head, sticky and creamy full body, medium-high carbonation.

Aroma: bright citrus american hops, fresh sweet pale and caramel malt. Very DIPA.

Taste: lots of bright citrus vinyl floral evergreen hops, caramel malt, buiscuty yeast esters.

I’d call this a cross between double india pale ale and trappist golden - its west coast hops with some nice fresh bready belgian yeast character. I was expecting a sour ale, but this has much more of a trappist character. Very good. Complex but sessional. The only change i would make is less vinyl more floral hops.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 19, 2010
Lagunitas is great value, but this beer is pretty standard for its style. Slightly sugary aroma before a doughy taste and peppery finish.

Body is medium, decent carbonation, a little acidic and lightly oily. Fruity spicey flavors with some doughy malts, wild? Nah. More spicey than funky, faint earthyness, grass. Dry finish, spicey and a hint juicey fruit. Bottle procured @statelineliquors.
