For when you're looking for something heavy that is affordable, well made and really drinkable, drink 'Sumpin Ale. It's just spot on for providing a nice hop aroma without overwhelming a really clean malt flavor. The body is just fabulous, as is the ABV. I don't find it boozy either. It's really well balanced.

Now that I am in the southwestern US I've been looking for an alternative to Peak Organic Summer Ale, which I love. This is a very good beer but not quite what I was looking for, i will grab another six and try it again. I will still keep searching for something similar to the Peak Organic though.

The smell of spiced fruit and orange peel follow immediately into the flavor up front that turns into a great, smooth but dry bitter finish. Another from Lagunitas that doesn't disappoint.

A beautiful looking pale ale! Golden yellow translucent body with a minimal egg white head. Pine hops punch through other clean/soapy smells, hinting at a very refreshing brew. Tastes of lemon, orange, and pear juices. Possibly some biscuity malts there, but piney hops overtake the taste buds before there's any chance of balance. Feels light and refreshing. Subtle carbonated and somewhat creamy. Overall, one of the most refreshing wheat beers I've had, but not enough hop/malt balance for my liking. I was hoping the malts would come out towards the end, as citrusy hops dominated everything, but no dice :/ Still, Little Sumpin' is one tasty Lagunitas brew worth trying.
