Bottle, of the 12 oz. variety. Iím a fan of Lagunitas....wonderfully-crafted brews with character. With attitude. With a little sumpiní, sumpiní... Anyway, this little beauty is fun to pour. Noice (sic) appearance. Wheaty. Just looking at it, you know youíre in for a robust beer...because the girl on the label has a bust. Or sumpiní. Smell is a hoppy-malt frankenstein of aroma. Taste is strange, in a good way, of wheat-hops-barley malt mish-mash, yet so true to the Lagunitas-unique yeast note. What did I just write? It tastes like a Lagunitas brew, OK? Palate? Starts sweet, feels refreshing, ends slightly dry. Overall, this is a winner. Because I said so. Sue me....

from TheHopster - clear straw color with small foamy head that completely disappears, minimal lacing as well, seems to have its carbonation intact so dont think i have a bad bottle, notes of citrus and floral hops, with a decent malt taste on the other side, a bit watery, alcohol well hidden, ok

Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma is lots of piney hops, with a little citrus thrown in. Flavor is lightly sweet with a big dose of grass, citrus, and piney hops.

Draft guest tap at Emmettís, Downers Grove. So Iíve had the Lille Sumpiní Extra, and the Little Sumpiní Wild, and only now do I get to try the daddy. But itís on tap, so itís worth the wait. Pours a hazy light amber with a foamy Belgian type head. A hoppy nose supported by some fruity esters. The first sip drags in the big hops, for a double IPA taste, but somewhat smooth foe a Cream Ale malt body. Again, some fruity esters in good proportion.

Mens Health magazine rated this beer as one of the top 5 beers to drink for the summer. Now, I can understand why. Excellent beer, aroma of hops!!! Yes!!! small head, but a well balanced ipa made for summer months. I would not have guessed this brew is 7.3% abv, hides it very well.

beerisgoodforu (992) - NÝrresundby, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2011
Bottle. Pours a nice golden orange-like color with a frothy off white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy with lots of grapefruit, some grassy notes, peach and abricot along with lots of sweet citrus fruit, like orange and some light sweet malty notes. The flavor is also nice and hoppy with some sweet malt to back it up, I get the grapefruit, sweeter citrus fruits like tangerine and orange, some peach and abricot too. The body is medium with a lightly dry mouthfeel. Overall a pretty darn solid West Coast IPA!

The smell is phenomenal! Obviously, it smells like hops, but thatís all; no malty body. Poured hazy orange with creamy white head. Tastes like biting into a ripe strawberry. This really impressed me, but ipaís are my favorite.

Appears orange gold in color. Itís half hazy...I can see my fingers through the glass but theyíre blurry. Head is one-finger in size, but it fades. BAM! Wonderful aroma of PINE and a meld of citrus goodness in the likes of grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon. Amazing fresh hop oils. Sweet acidic citrus flavors dominate and invite the taste buds to the party. Lemon, orange, and grapefruit are the primary players. Sweet malt provides a subtle backdrop for the hop flavors to get their dance party on. A pleasant bitterness lingers after a crisp finish and mouthfeel. This is a bigger ale that deceptively acts light and refreshing while bitch slapping you with american citrus-hop goodness. I could see people accidentally having too many of these.

Sigmund (7313) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2015 355 ml bottle, from ōlkonsortiet, Aalborg. ABV is 7.5%. 64.2 IBU, OG 1076. Golden colour, large white head. Very nice sweetish and fruity aroma, notes of American hops and pale crystal malts, hints of fresh orange marmalade. The flavour has a nice hoppiness throughout, but is unfortunately a bit too sweet for my taste. Bitter finish. Well worth sampling. Rerate: Bottle in California. Found it not too sweet this time. Very good beer.
