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.

sfontain (811) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2013
12 oz bottle, Kroger. Golden amber, medium lacing. Floral and slightly piney hops, somewhat floral, bread, grapefruit/pineapple, and evident Belgian influence, with banana and yeast, maybe even some peach notes. Lingering bitterness in the flavor. Another very solid Lagunitas brew, and dangerously drinkable for 8.8%.

queenholly (2987) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle. Sweet malty, earthy citrus hops, and Belgian yeast aroma. Clear brassy gold with a large white head. Musty grassy citrus hops, Belgian yeast, citrus peel, and sweet malty flavor. Medium body, moderate carbonation.

Pours a hazy and deep dark red. Smells ridiculously resinous and sweet, almost like a candied hop aroma. Dark bitter cherry,with a hint of chocolate , dankness and a dry woody finish. The bitterness lingers for a while. Awesome red IPA!

kyzr (1153) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Pour of gold and good white frothy head. Nice citrus nose with hints of Belgian yeast. Hops are punchy up front, but nice balance of malt with that yeast on the finish.

liquidhedonism (92) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - OCT 9, 2014
12 oz bottle from Johnís Marketplace in Portland, OR. Aroma is citrusy, grassy, and fruity, with hints of banana, lime, and licorice. Mouthfeel and taste begins creamy and sweet, and finishes sweet, bitter and slightly tangy/sour. I liked the balance between the maltiness and hoppiness, and also how the malt and hops went a long way toward smoothing out the Belgian yeast flavor. I didnít particularly care for the tangy finish, but this is still an excellent beer!

julesjis (72) - Oregon, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Poured from a 12. Has a grassy, barnyard, dankish aroma to it. Flavor is crisp, but finishes creamy. Definitely has a strong bitterness to it like the pith of an orange peel.

This golden colored ale has a great aroma of grapefruit. It has a big balanced smokey and hop flavor. Citrus flavors come through really well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopwine (350) - Bend, Oregon, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Grapefruit and lemon rind, sharp Belgian phenols, banana, honeydew, honeysuckle, herbaceous, sweet cracker underpinning. Finish is long lasting fruit and resin. Really awesome and a phenomenal value.
