Another Solid Offering from Lagunitas. Oh Magoo, you've done it again.

Pours a big nice white head with lacing. Golden Honey color, crisp, clean. Don't hate it because it's beautiful walking around like it's pretty boy floyd

Citrusy, earthy, wheat, hops, some bubblegum. You can smell what the Rock is cooking...

Sweet malts, lemonony citrus hops make way for straight up fresh hops that go all Rampage Jackson your tongue. What are you gonna do when Hopamania is coming down on you?

Nicely carbonated, big mouthfeel leaving you with champagne wishes and caviar dreams.

A little hoppier than Gumballhead, but just as lemony sweet and satisfying. R. Kelly is right, aint nothing wrong with a little bump and grind. Thong thong thong thong thong.

Bottle poured into my New Belgium globe

Golden body,clear, with a nice white head on top, some light lacing on the glass. Smells very hoppy, big citrusy notes with some tropical fruit flavor as well. Tastes a bit more balanced than the aroma would indicate. A nice citrusy hop flavor mingles with a solid pale malt backbone. Medium bodied with a nice amount of carbonation. I wouldn't mind drinking this one again. It's a solid beer for sure. That being said I wouldn't go nuts trying to seek it out but the bang for your buck is high on this one.

A - Not as expected at all. Poured pure yellow with a white foamy head. Expected darker or hazier

S - Mostly hops but small bit of wheat a pislner malt sort of smell. Ok hope it's hoppy.

T - Well it met my exceptions as being a pretty hoppy brew but with a name like Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale I expected more than little flavor. Mostly taste like orange rinds and pine with no real citrus or grapefruit undertones.

M - Light to medium bodied. Drinkable.

D - Well I love Lagunitas but it seems only for their big beers. Their IPA doesn't seem hopped enough and this was just a hopped up pale ale. Pretty bland yet still love the company.

Poured from bottle into pint glass and enjoyed with a fantastic Trader Jo's pizza topped with sauteed spinach, olives, onions, and garlic.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, orange-gold body sporting a full inch of off-white foam. Light lacing on the descent.

Smell: Smells of wheat, flowery orange, citrus, and a small hint of pine.

Taste:A very light mix of wheat and light grain. Small hints of citrus and pine. Exactly what it needs to be for a stronger pale wheat beer.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: Such a great beer for it's price, If I want a good beer for a good price I generally go to Lagunitas, or sometimes Abita.
