Brewer: The Lagunitas Brewing Company
Product: A Little Sumpin' Ale
Style: American Pale Wheat Ale
ABV: 7.5%
IBUs: 64.20
Glassware: North Coast Brewing Tulip
Service Type: 12 oz bottle

A: Vigorous pour. Three fingers of eggshell-white head. Carbonation is high and true to style. Bubble size is from foam to 1/8th inch and is very consistent in the range of 1/16th inch. Head retention is excellent. Lacing is stocky and covering 90% of the glass as the head recedes. Color is Deep Gold (6 SRM) and beer is very slightly hazy. The lacing is extraordinary.

S: Citrus, grapefruit, lemon, a bit of pine, wheat malt, some more hops. As it warms the nose gets a bit stronger but not much.

T: Lemon, grapefruit, pale wheat malt, sugar, hops. Crisp and refreshing with a slightly sweet finish. Goes bitter and disappears. No hint of alcohol in taste. Aftertaste is both sweet and sour and somewhat astringent.

M: Light-Medium bodied. Starts smooth and creamy. Goes to tingly which crecendos and fades to a slight warmth and a crisp dry finish. The slight sour of the citrus in the aftertaste makes my mouth water for more. :)

O: An extremely well-constructed beer. Very drinkable. And excellent introduction beer to craft beer curious. Appearance is beautiful. Nose is very light when cold so nose it but do not expect much until it warms. The nose does not grow as big as the taste as it warms. Mouthfeel is awesome. This beer is great.
