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.

mensch (265) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2010
More IPA-a double really- than belgian. Big floral and citrus aroma, with hints of candied fruit. Strong bitter hop flavors and fruity malts play with the added funky complexity of the westmalle yeast. Delicious.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2010
$4.29/ 22 oz. brown bottle. A very clear golden beer with a nice white head that starts to slowly fade. This beer has clarity. The aroma has that nice citrusy tropical fruit scent but the yeast is also vying for position with that Belgian yeast scent that also contributes some floral aspects. This smells clean. The taste is a little dominant with the yeast character with the Lil Sumpin malt/wheat base providing a good foundation for the loads of hops. The yeast gives some floralness(new made up word) and mixed in with the loads of hops makes this beer more dry than the original. Classify under "Belgian IPA"

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2010
22oz bomber from Spec’s in Austin. Pours a light orange/amber body with a bubbly, sticky head that left nice lacing. Aromas of orange zest, fruity, yeasty, some grassy hops and lightly sweet. Flavors of floral/citrus hops, yeasty, medium carmel sweet, some spicyness and a bit of an odd fruity flavor(?). Another very good (not quite great) beer from Lagunitas.

jrmac (331) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 24, 2010
pours a nice cloudy gold color. Nose is tight revealing only a hint of hops. Flavors of yeast and hops. Also a nice malt backbone. Great beer.

thirdeye11 (5739) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2010
(22oz bottle thanks to Nellie) clear yellow, medium bright with a film of white bubbles. Nose of weed, floral, earthy, peppercorns and peaches. Taste of peppercorns, perfumey, oranges, smooth body that’s quite oily. Nice Belgian!

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - OCT 23, 2010
On tap at Urge. As usual, Lagunitas delivers. A solid IPA with a big juicy citrus finish. There is the faintest hint of funk, but I found nothing particularly "wild" in this beer. It’s a solid IPA though.

CampesinoTino (798) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Bomber. Pours a sparkling peach and gold color with a thin layer of dense head. The aroma is tangerine nectar, resiny hops and cannabis oil. The taste starts with a distinctly Belgian style doughy yeast flavor followed by a blend of honey, malt, citrus, pears and earthy hops. It’s full-bodied with moderate carbonation and a dry, boozy finish. The overall flavor could almost be described as a Belgian Double IPA. The alcohol level is definitely noticeable but it’s not too aggressive. Different but equal to A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Bomber. Pours slightly hazy golden amber with a medium orangey beige head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aromas of funky papaya, guava, and sugar. Flavor is spicy floral hops with sweet tropical fruit, mocomoco (a Bolivian fruit), and brown sugar. Warming, thick, and creamy-ish. Very nice stuff.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 23, 2010
22 oz bottle. Clear golden with a thick dense white head produced from a hard pour. Aroma of candi sugar, earthy yeast, wheat, hay and light apple. The flavor is pretty sweet but has some light sourness and bitterness. You can taste the house yeast as well as the Westmalle yeast in the beer. Medium body with average carbonation and a creamy, slick mouth feel.Wish the Westmalle yeast was a bit more noticeable for the flavor and to dry it out a bit more. This is a pretty good beer though, especially for the price.
