4.33/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 12oz bottle got in a trade with mjl21...thanks for everything Mike!

A- Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow/orange color. Nice one finger off white head that goes away rather quickly leaving some thin sticky lacing.

S- This smells not like most wheat beers. The upfront smell of course is wheat but right behind that is some citrus hop smell (grapefruit and some mango) along with hints of piney hops as well.

T- Once again this is not like most wheat beers at all. Big citrus hop kick right upfront that I enjoy in most IPA's which kicks into a kind of piney hop and wheaty taste and ends with more of a citrus hops burst I think. Overall not like a wheat at all but more like IPA as far as taste is concerned.

M- This is a light to medium light mouthfeel to it. There is good carbonation to this beer making it dance over the palate when you sip it. It leaves a nice little hop resin on the tounge letting you taste it long after it's gone. The aftertaste is a nice piney hop with a little citrus in there as well.

D- This is a very drinkable beer to say the least. I am glad I got a couple of bottles of this in a trade. The sad thing is I already drank the two I got. If I could get this in my state I would drink this all the time. Too bad like most beers I enjoy a lot I can't get it. Very good beer!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale -brewed by Lagunitas Brewing Company with an ABV of 7.5. This brew pours out a nice amber color with a nice white head. The smell is bold and rich with hops and grains. The smell is a little bit overpowering to this brew. The taste is bitter at first but the end is nice. This brew has a nice clean finish. The mouthfeel is great and refreshing. A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale is an ok drinking brew. It is bitter but smooth. I like how this brew is different from most brews on the market. This is not your everyday drinking brew. You have to be in the mood for this brew. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4 out of 5.

4.61/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

This one pours a pure golden color with a with the faintest hint of cloudiness. There is a thick fast rising white head that settles slowly with a thin pillowy remnant and a good quality lacing down the glass.

The nose is sharp pine and grass riding on malted breadiness and subtle notes of fruit, floral hops and some pepper.

The taste is a nice dry bitter hopping that has a sweet rush and sharp bitter finish. The malt is surging sweet and dry. Nice a simple notes with complex surges.

The moutfeel is rich and just right.

Overall an exceptional beer that is excellent to drink.
