22 ounce bomber. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a thick white head. Aromas of citrus and bread. Flavor is very fruity. Citrus hops, slight bubblegum with a slightly peppery finish. A very well done Belgian IPA.

22 oz bottle. Clear golden yellow with a fluffy white head and clumpy lace. Nose is funky citrus, yeast and pine. Medium body with fuzzy carb. Taste is orange peel, green melon, grapefruit zest and yeast. Finishes with quinine and white pepper. Not so wild but a good hoppy Belgian.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This starts with a citrus hop aroma, with a bit of funk in the background. Pours a clear amber with a large, fluffy, white head. Interesting flavor... a strong hop presence, caramel malts, and a bit of Belgian spice that seems a bit out of place. Drinkable... but I think I’ll stick to the other Little Sumpin’ ales over this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pression @ OTH.
Couleur dorée, blanche.
Arôme, citron, houblon, citronnelle, feuille de thé vert.
Goût, cette bière a définitivement le cote originale de Lagunitas de par sa levure, mais le cote ’wild’ qui indique une bière de type belge amer était quasi indétectable. Peut-être une note de pale malt, avec des notes de fruit; abricot et levure et un fini qui reste bien houblonné avec une fine amertume.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden yellow, nose is quite pungent with big yeasty esters. Taste is a perfect melding of the crisp citrus hops and the fruity yeast esters. Perfect level of dryness makes it full of flavor but easy to drink.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at SD Brew Co. They’ve got 30 taps or so but I kept hittin’ this one because i don’t know when I’ll see it again. Nose is sweet hops and that Lagunitas malt profile. Thick head with sticky lace. Hint of funk and leather on the nose. Taste light grape sweetness. Alcohol to honey to hay. Interesting mix.

The Hops hit quick with this one, but overall an excellent beer. Good stuff. Amber beer with a reddish tint w/ white head. Flavor is quite full, and has almost an IPA taste with a fruity kick that is not grapefruit. Different, and I enjoy it a lot. Thank you flying saucer San Antonio

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - Liquor Loft - 22 oz bomber. Dark copper pour, sticky off white head that leaves nice lacing. Fresh sprucey aroma, some floral hints as well. Patented Lagunitas citrusy hoppy flavor. Some malty, caramel-like sweetness balances it out. Creamy smooth mouthfeel. Another solid entry from Lagunitas - I swear if I did a blind taste test of their beers - I would not be able to tell any difference - but I still like them.
