3.6/5  rDev -14.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Look – clear light amber color, with about two fingers’ worth of off-white colored foam that dissipates somewhat quickly.

Smell – very sweet smell, almost like orange juice or grapefruit juice.

Taste – slightly hoppy, but most noticeable is the citrusy taste, which indeed still seems to be that of orange or grapefruit.

Mouthfeel – pretty well balanced, but leans a little more on the watery side.

Overall – not a bad brew, and not bad tasting at all. Tasting it in the fall now, but it was probably aimed at being a summer beer, which makes a lot of sense.

Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale has a yellow colour and a good head that lasts. It has a nice hoppy smell with a hint of citrus. The taste is hoppy with a hint of citrus bitterness. It's nice and foamy in the mouth and very drinakable. It's delicious.

This is one of my favorite IPAs, even though it's technically classified as an "American Pale Wheat Ale." It has a ton of fresh flavor and depth of body, and the subtle nuances in smell/taste are what really make it great. There are tons of piney-grapefruit honey hops, bread-y yeast, and a bit of fruit flavor like apple and pear. There is also a little sweetness to the hops that balances out the whole beer. I could have this beer again and again.

A-nice orange color white lacing and head
S-nice citrus hops up front with very little boys of wheat.
T-very hoppy with a bit of funk at the end that I can't quite put a finger on. I would never guess this to be a wheat beer.
M-light bodied and smooth. Crisp and clean.
D-very drinkable. Wish I had anoher

Appearance: Hazy golden.
Smell: sweet, citrus, hoppy.
Taste: This is only my 2nd review...I would have guessed IPA or APA, not wheat, but there is a crispness I haven't tasted in either. Very tasty.
Drinkability: Wouldn't have guessed 7%. I'm drinking this fast.

4/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a weizen glass. Pours a clear gold with a sticky white head.

Has a hoppy pine smell, with pleasant floral and honey notes and hints of orange and grass.

Has a slightly strange combination of herbal wheat and spicy hop. Fruity, floral, piney and bitter, this aromatic brew starts savory and ends bitter.

Medium to light bodied, it is rather crisp and clean, despite it's full flavor.

I find myself all over the map on this one. I like it, but find it odd and taxing. I want more, but then feel I've had enough. Little sumpin' sumpin'? OK, I'll try a little mo'!
