Another awesome hop beast from Lagunitas, I get super pumped every time they churn out business like this. Presents like a Belgian IPA, even if not classified as such. Fairly malty with a noticeable but not massive Belgian twang. Hops are more prominent in the nose than the flavor, but both exhibit great balance. Definitely one of the most unique offerings from Lagunitas, and one of the best ones as well. MrBunn (2848) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2010
Bomber. First, a huge kick in the nuts to the jackass who wrote the virus code that has infected my laptop. This is an iPhone rating because of technical issues. I hope you die a slow and painful death, bastard. Alright, so this beer is a pretty clean gold, unlike the filthy scum of cyberland. Head is small and aromas are adequately interesting. Quite a mix of light fruit, honey and citrus. Flavor is sweeter than expected. A mix of pear and peach that has a little twang of wildness to it and a citrusy bite in the finish. I like it... I hope the hacking asshats who messed up my computer never get to try it. DerWeg (1713) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2010
Bomber. Drank from a glass tho. Kinda orange, dense and clear with white foamy layer. Smells a bit like a saison or sumpin. Great hop aromas, go America. Taste is also very go America, the hop and boombastic delicious fat malts of a pale-ish conspiracy. Prickly feel! Whencetofore is also herbal, grassy with lemon and slightly funky. If this were a 4oz sample I’d stop at that, but it’s sumpin good. And the bomber lives in the fridge, with airtight stopper, pending furtherance of consumption.

Pours golden orange with a thin off white head. Full floral and sweet citrus nose. More flowers in the flavor with some hop citrus bitterness. A bit of yeast as well. Medium mouthfeel. trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Good stuff. Very much like the regular Sumpin Sumpin, with a bit more of a yeasty/malty note, especially in the aroma. The hops really come through in the flavor, and it actually finishes pretty bitter. Nice, though - another great effort from Lagunitas.

Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a golden effervescent orange-hued body. Cascading, tight lacing. A white fluffy head recedes slightly. Tempting nose of sour yeast and citrus. The mouth displays dough, coriander, tangerine, and subtle metal in the finish followed by a bite of piney hops. High carbonation, medium/full body. Excellent. Cappadonna (110) - Delray Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Pours golden with tan, foamy head and consistent carbonation. Wonderful aroma with malt, pine, and banana notes. Very complex, and enjoyable taste. Well balanced- starts quite sweet and then quickly transitions to lasting bitter finish. Has bit of an alcohol finish, too. Feels light in the mouth and is drinkable, but a little syrupy. A very drinkable, fun, strong beer. Sledutah (7841) - Utah, USA - DEC 6, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2010 22oz bottle from BevMo in Vacaville golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Appearance: Crystal clear golden with a huge frothy white head and lots of sticky lacing left in the glass
Aroma: Sweet malts, honey, spices, citrus
Taste: Sweet malts, Belgian yeast, pine and spices
Very nice beer. I really enjoyed this one.
Bottle. Yellow - gold pour. Aroma is spices, vanilla, some yeast. Flavor is slightly sweet at first, but the spices and yeastiness take over and are slightly bitter. A little harsh on the palate too; reminds me of the yeast in some of the early bottles from the bruery. Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 4, 2010
22 oz bottle from New Seasons - Pours an orange-yellow color with a nice pillowy head. Very hoppy scent. More on the citrus side than floral. A little citrus on the flavor, too, but not too Belgiany... Nice beer with a big kick.
