COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Another Big Sister of the Little Sumpiní Sumpiní AleÖ. Loads of Malted Wheat for a Curious Malt Foundation and a Light Color, But Our Belgian Yeast Leaves a Huge Flavor and Complexishness.

Tap. Poured a light copper color, small white head with pour. Aroma was sweet malts (similar to other Lagunitas beers), grapefruit notes, yeasty. Flavor was sweet malts, citrus, yeast, bready. Tad sweet, but very drinkable, clean finish.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2011 Excellent aroma. Strong pineapple, mango, berries. More than the typical citrus. Appearance is a crystal clear light copper color. 1 finger thick white head that lingers nicely. Taste is not as enjoyable as aroma. Bittersweet grapefruit, mango. Grapefruit bitterness lingers. Whatever subtle complexities the Belgian yeast may be creating are completely overpowered by the 72.51 IBUís. Palate is medium and crisp. Overall a nice beer. Not as nice as regular Sumpin IMO. It seems the belgian yeast has deleted the exciting hops brightness that is present in the original and the bitterness is too much for any kind of real belgian complexity to come through.. Still a nice beer though.

Draught at Caponeís: Aroma of hops, grapefruit, tropical fruit, and crystal malt. Poured amber in color with a medium to large-sized, creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Slightly sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of hops, tropical fruit, grapefruit, nectarine, and crystal malt. Medium body. Slick, then lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Tropical fruit, citrus, and hop finish is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Too sweet. Not bitter enough. 7.8%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

GT (9918) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 2, 2010
22oz courtesy of tastybeer. Nice appearance- little hazy orange with a billowing cream head. Good retention and wispy lace. Aroma is very nice: floral, potpourri, perfume, mango. Taste is dry, spritzy, dry hoppy, citrus fruity, kumquat skins, gooseberries, a bit spicy, some noticeable alcohol. Very bitter. Fairly astringent palate. Very soft and very nice overall. Should NOT BE CALLED "WILD". That is totally incorrect and just plain misleading.

expecting brett, or something similar, from the WILD connotation, but this was not a disappointment at all. a bright, floral, citrusy ipa, fresh as hell, with a slightly spicy and dry belgian yeast. one of my favorite Lagunitas beers, probably ever. iíll search out again, and hope to get more fresh bottles!

On tap at Bar on Buena. Pour was a clear orangeish gold with a white head. A nice citric aroma with some hoppiness. Tastes great well balanced citric notes with great spicy hops. I was pleasantly surprised.

With the world "wild" in the name youíd expect the aroma/taste to be a little exotic. Well I wouldnít say that itís exotic but it is a great beer. Itís almost like a DIPA, with itís hoppy,malty, grapefruit aroma and bitter,piney taste, but itís most impressive quality has to be itís appearance. The pour was dark orange with brownish tints and a very bubbly head. Not too thick , not too thin. The carbonation is pretty spot on, as is the head retention. Pretty intense and flavorful.

I am not sure whatís wild about this. I expected something a bit sour or funky but this is really along the same lines as Hop Stoopid, which is to say it is a very good IIPA. The color is slightly hazy orange and the head is white, of medium bubbles and leaves behind big chunks of lace. It is medium dry with any sweetness more than balanced by hop bitterness. Medium to light bodied but creamy w/ gentle but vigorous carbonation. Fruity and very lightly tart, there is a slight woodiness but no funk whatever. This drinks lighter than itís 7.8% ABV but is still quite hoppy and flavorful which is how I like these sorts of things. Itís a very good beer but maybe not what youíd expect based on the name.

Pale straw-coloured pour. The nose is very fruity and almost tropical. The hops have a nice citrusy character that accentuates the fruitiness of the yeast. Sort of a mix of pineapple and dried plums. Lightly minerally bitterness and a fairly nice integration of yeast and hops Ė not particularly Bretty though.

On tap at Andys Corner Bar. Clear orange in color with an off white head. Citrusy, spicy hops with some malt sweetness. Flavor is citrusy grapefruit, orange peel and some spicy hops. Very hoppy flavor. Full bodied beer. Moderate hop bitterness creating a nice and pleasing balance. Very nice beer.
