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.

On tap at Beachwood BBQ. Pours clear copper with white head. Aromas of citrus hops, banana, and bready malts. Flavor of banana, bready malts, muted citrus, and good amount of hop bitterness. Basically a belgain IPA. Was hoping for something tart and sour, but did not get it.

On tap at flying saucer. Pours a clear orange gold with a small frothy white head that leaves sticky white lacing. The aroma is a sweet fruit and cascade hops. Medium mouthfeel with a dry hop and yeast. Easy to drink a very good belgian ale from Lagunitas.

Pour is clear orangey amber with a thin sticky tan head...smell is grapefruit and citrus hops...some lightly sweet floral notes too...taste is nicely hoppy like expected...then a nice estery and yeasty Belgian flavor..I don’t quite know if this works or not but it is really interesting...

Deceiving pale color packs a big hoppy smackdown. Small headed, bubbles rising in perfect vertical order, it looks like a nice cognac. Sweet and bitter at the same time. Clove, hops, grapefruit, peach flavors. Delicious combination. Sour on the afterbite. Delightful brew! Love what Lagunitas has been putting out.

ilovedarkbeer (2332) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Pours a clear deep golden color with a large yeasty off white head. Nose is tennis ball fuzz, vinyl, canned pears. Taste is bitter, grassy, and slightly boozy with no real recognizable flavors other than banana bread and citrus. Creamy well carbonated mouthfeel. Odd and over hopped.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Pours a clear deep golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a fresh grapefruity hoppy nose with a light biscuity malty sweetness and a hint of light fruity esters. Starts with decent fullness and light carbonation with a toasty pale malty sweetness well-balanced with a juicy hop resin bitterness before a citrusy bittersweet finish. Could use a little more body and sweetness, but it’s still a very drinkable and tasty Belgian-styled IPA.

650ml. Pours slightly hazy golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma is very fresh citric hops, a touch piney with a noticeable belgian yeast sweetness. Flavor starts sweet and slightly candyish, the yeast definitely playing a role in the balance with the strong american hops. Finishes bitter, a bit grainy and some definite booze followed by a piney bitterness lingering. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Nice beer
