Woody pine and oak hop aroma. Roasted malt, rye-like: dark & spicy. Nutty, dry backbone, mineral-like. Hop dominates, but equaled by bitter malt.

The appearance is deep cloudy orange. Slow carbonation. Big puffy white head. Wispy lace.

Woody taste, very resinous hop. Bitter as hell. Earthy raked leaves. Spicy on the malt end; rye and almost a peppery burn. Could use a break somewhere (citrus? a dark fruit?) but it works. Toffee comes in a base; molasses.

Creamy and milky. Oily, slick complexion. Strong flavors all around, not a respite to be had. Slightly disappointing but very drinkable.

on tap at Cap Ale House Midlothian.The beer came and sa light golden and clear. Moderate off-whit head, not big but not thin either For what there was, it stuck around. Good lacing. On the nose there was a light citrus-y aroma. The beer had a medium-light body and had some bitterness in the finish that offset the residual sweetness. Nicely balanced. As the beer warmed, the hop flavor came through more, citrus, resin-y, earthy. Again nicely balanced on the tongue. This beer hits the right notes and I will be getting some more the first chance I get.

Wow! I really liked this! Hazy orangy colour with good similar head. Aroma is a bounty of flowery hop aromas with candy like malt sugars. Flavour compliments this the bitterness is not that strong probably because of all the sugar. Body is decent.

I was super excited when I saw this on the shelves last year since Sumpin’ Sumpin’ was one of my most enjoyed beers last year. Something just didn’t jive though, flavor is a little sweet and malty, aroma isn’t as nice and fresh and enticing, the alcohol is a little much. I’d prefer if they just released Sumpin’ Sumpin’ for a longer period...

65 cl bottle, Mulmur, ON, Canada via Niagara Falls. Hazy golden colour, citrus and spice aroma with specifically grapefruit and cloves. Thick, sharp hop bite with a long bitter finish.

I’m not joking! I can drink Lagunitas all day, every day! There’s reasons for that too, besides the absolutely amazing flavors within...they don’t overcharge! Dank!

Pours looking very much like a standard wheat. Medium frothy white head with a see thru golden color. Smells of oranges, honey, and pine. Lighter than my usual fair. Hoppy (surprisingly) with a lot of pine flavor. Honey flavor is subtle but present. Goes down smooth and then turns to a slight long lasting hop tartness. Very pleased and impressed with the originality.

(bottle - 22 oz) Hazy orange pour with a thick off-white head. Candy sugar, citrus and floral notes are the most prevalent in the aroma. Not much in the way of actual hop bitterness. Grapefruit notes and lots of citrus bitterness begin the flavor with some bitter and dry hop notes near the middle. Finishes with a slightly malty and bitter hop flavor. Nothing special. Kind of tastes like a lot of their other IPAs.

High alcohol underwhelming aroma and taste. Overly malty with minimal hop influence. Sweet sugary taste with little refinement.

Poured this beer from a large size bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a light, clear gold-amber color with a large, foamy off-white head that head long-lasting retention and modest cling. The beer had a spicy, hoppy aroma with some earthy and grainy components, and maybe a touch of cinnamon. The taste was crisp and bitter, with an earthy, hop touch, and a tiny bit sour; really not much sweetness in this one. It had a lively, high-carbonation feel on the palate, with a lot of fizz and a slightly noticeable presence of alcohol. Definitely a solid beer, but it did not blow me away.
