Draft at Jerry’s. Dark gold with big foamy off-white head / Floral nose of pine, citrus, and bread / Medium body, moderately sweet with biting hops, but with good malt balance, and with long finish / Flavors of fresh cut pine, orange, grapefruit, chrysanthemum, earth, and caramel / Not as big as some, but just a perfect example of a double. shaihulud (13) - Kentucky, USA - JUL 19, 2014
I want to lick the girl on the covers feet. The beer is really dope too. Beer is like a pair of feet, I want to stick my dick in them and drink beer while getting a foot job. The point is this is really good and little sumpin is also good and I have never had a bad beer from Lagunitas so they have nice feet. I’m gonna go take a nap Brianking145 (3) - Creston, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2014 does not count
Straw yellow pour from bottle. Terrific fruity aroma. Full flavor from copious hopping. Smooth mouth feel. Well hidden alcohol. For a double IPA it is very drinkable. Citrus, floral, skunky all in a good way. yourilevesque (1829) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
I never give a perfect score to a beer because to me, perfection doesn’t exist when it comes to beer or food. To be fair, I must say that this one is pretty much close to perfection! First, Lagunita’s labels and beer names are funny! Then comes the serving... This one has a great looking golden colour with just enough carbonation to make the liquid jiggle in the glass. Head is foamy and the strong citrus aromas still make their way through this thick bubbly white head. Taste is absolutly beautiful: pink grapefruit, lemon, flowers, lime, malts.. it is so complex, that I can barely name a few ingredients storming in my mouth right now! The mouthfeel is outstanding with a smooth carbonnated bitterness, low alcool, a little sugar and a fine long long magnificent fruit taste that stays in your mouth as the liquid is going down the throath. As I said, it is simply a principle matter that I don’t give this beer a perfect score. This is just the perfect ale for me! Btw, sorry for all the mistakes, English is not my first language.

An absolutely beautiful pour. Clear, orange-brown, with a nice fluffy cream colored head. The aroma makes me melt into a puddle on the floor. Creamy, fruity with grapefruit and apricot, a bit of malt. Flavor is shaped by malt and fruit, with some grassy hop bitterness in the background. Palate is creamy but a bit astringent. Holy crap this is good!

Very impressed with this DIPA. I just can’t get enough of it. Too bad its a limited release.
Reminds me alot of hopslam with a little less honey.

Strong hops aroma and flavor. Hints of caramel and nuts. Nice clear, golden color with a frothy head. Medium bitter/sweet. Earthy. LiMuBai (222) - - AUG 23, 2014
Excellent beer! Pours a light amber/dark golden with a thin, non-existent head. Excellent aroma of bubblegum, candy, citrus and pine. Startles you on the first sip (thinking it may be overly bitter) but really comes on relatively smooth with a slight bitter kick. jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a mostly clear, medium gold with. Half finger of white head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet. Loads of tropical and citrus fruits with a decent malt backbone. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Another lagunitas Homerun.

Wait, so this is basically Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ but with more hops and booze? Take my money, Lagunitas. If anyone is still keeping track of all the subcategories of hoppy ales, I guess you’d have to call this one an Imperial White IPA. I guess. While Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ presents a relatively even balance of wheat malt and hops, Extra! is more hop-forward, as you’d expect. Body is a shade darker and more hazy, but there’s the same gorgeous foam. Aroma is a blend of piney, citrusy, floral, and grassy hops. Flavor is equally complex. Fresh grass, leafy bitterness, melon, guava, orange, grapefruit, nectar, and hints of honey and wheat bread. Mouthfeel is sticky, dank, and crisp. The hops are damn near chewy. Anyone who thinks all wheat-based beers are light-bodied and sweet is bound to be pretty surprised by this brew.
