I stumbled on this new fave two days ago at World Wines in Mentor. Being a fan of Lagunitas, and seeing a reasonably high ABV, I thought it would be worth a try. I was looking for a price and didn't see one, but still, Lagunitas makes first rate stuff.
I got one semi cold and had it the other day and was shocked by the number of flavors mixed in this one. It's hoppy, it's malty, it has a wheat yeast taste. All going on at the same time.
Unlike some other Lagunitas brews, this one is balanced nicely with enough hops to overcome the yeast and malt (some of the others are very malty). The ABV will come after you, so be careful.
This morning I headed over to the store where I got this and bought two more sixes (of the three they had). Price was not on my mind (I think it was $10 or $11) I apologized for hoarding.They told me the last one I didn't buy is the last one they will have (it had just come in Thursday and that was all they will get). California is a long way from NE Ohio, and I may not see a Little Sumpin again for a while, but it sure is sumpin good.

After I drank the first few sips of this is tasted really Hoppy but in a good way. Fairly Floral. Good thick taste. Hard to describe but even though it is not the same type of beer it really tasted like a beer that I had last week in California. Pliney the Elder! The taste was about 80% similar. So if you want something that tastes similar but live in Texas like I do go buy some Little Sumpin to satisfy your Pliney the Elder needs.
