4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours golden yellow with a dense white head. The aroma is a lot like lil sumpin sumpin with a big citrusy, peach, and subtle grainy malts. The flavor is awesome with lots of ipa hoppiness and a potent Belgian yeast kick that adds another layer of fruity and spicy complexity. Hints of grains and candy before a big bitter finish.

Like little sumpin but with a great breast augmentation. Deep, complex flavors and the great aroma and added punch makes you savor for longer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle, 2010 edition.
Clear light amber, maybe orangy gold... fluffy off white head. Head quickly settles to a thin cap, and there is minimal lacing.
Aroma is hoppy for sure. Pine, tropical fruit, citrus mixed with some funky earth and caramel. Touch of bubblegum as it warms.
Flavor is pine, citrus, earth... peppery bite, wheat is there but deep under the hops. Finish is long and has a nice mix of pine, caramel and citrus.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours out a clear, well carbonated copper color with a pillowy off white head. Aroma is lots of pine, grapefruit and slight fruity yeasty notes. Taste is lots of fresh hops, a nice biting bitterness of grapefruit and pine, mixing with fruity, and ever so slightly funky yeast notes, mild tropical fruits and no sign of any alcohol. Very impressed, especially for $4.99/bomber, I would have gladly paid more for this one....um beer store proprietors ignore that last bit...

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The sumpin beers seem to be chasing Russian River. They’re not anywhere near the quality of pliny the elder or blind pig (though that’s a pretty high standard) but still a nice piny citrus ipa. I don’t quite get the wild, but a decent beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Brewforia in Meridian, ID Nearly clear light orange/yellow with a thick creamy white head that left lacing on the sides of the glass all the way to the bottom. Bug fresh sweet hop aroma with light malts and a sharp Belgian yeast character as well. Sweet hop flavors, sticky fruity, banana pineapple and pear maybe. remarkably little bitterness for all the hop flavor you get. Very wet palette with a lot of residual sweetness. A Belgian IPA

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Brewforia: Absolutely clear gold with lots of carbonation with a white bubbly head. The aroma is full of yeast, pepper and sweet hops. The flavor is similar of sweet hops, but more yeasty. The bitter aftertaste lingers.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle from Jonathan Ron. Poured a clear orange body with an average sized frothy off white head. Aroma starts off with some big time citrus notes, barnyard funk, yeast, fermenting berries. Great palate. Medium bodied with a hint of dryness and a medium duration on the aftertaste, highly quaffable. Flavors of yeast, grapefruit, citrus rind, pine needles. Really great stuff.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Disagree with some of these reviews. Perhaps I lucked into a good batch, but I had a couple of bottles the other night and thought this is the best bargain in store. Very complex yet drinkable.
