This is one of my all time favorites. The first time I tried this beer, it was love at first site.

Appearance: This beer pours a beautiful and crystal clear copper hue with a 1 to 2 finger head and lots of sticky lacing in the glass.

Smell: Signature Lagunitas Aroma. I huge pop of citrus hops with some slight piney and floral notes. I love the over the top citrus aroma that this beer has, though. Lagunitas has really perfected the great aroma of a higher IBU beer.

Taste: A strong hop flavor that isn't overly bitter that is very nicely paired to a soft malt backbone. The hops are the predominant flavor, but not over powering. The malt backbone consists of some crystal/caramel malt notes, with some slightly biscuity characteristics.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, silky, easy drinking.

Overall: I absolutely love this beer for any time of year. Well done Lagunitas and I hope you continue to crank out some more tasty beers such as this one.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. I am somehow just now finally getting around to reviewing this one; it has been years since I've last had this beer. Looking forward to having it again. Listed here as an American pale wheat ale, I always thought it was an IPA.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a bright juicy orange body. Light chill haze, with three big fluffy fingers of white head. Very good head retention for the high 7.50% abv. Good thick scattered white lacing. Looks very nice.

S - The nose has all of the traditional aromas of a hoppy IPA - orange, grapefruit, papaya, pine, fruit rinds. Some soapiness present. A juicy tropical fresh smelling aroma.

T - Taste follows the nose - big bitter grapefruit / orange rinds, piney, herbal, hoppy. Lemongrass / wheat presence. The wheat is more noticeable on the taste than on the aroma. Very nicely balanced.

M - Feel is crisp, creamy, and bitter. Resinous piney hops. Dry on the finish. Light bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, a delicious beer from Lagunitas, it's easy to see why this is one of their flagship beers. Deliciously drinkable.

Lagunitas A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale ---4/5.

This is now my favorite beer, it was my 3rd try at American Hoppy Wheat beers. GumballHead, 80 Acre and then a Little Sumpin. Great cloudy color, terrific foamy head. I really like the citrus profiles these beers have. I like that it has a higher ABV%, the tangerine flavors don't cloud or fight the beer taste. I can't wait for the brewery to open up in Chicago.
