look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Hop-hazed gold color. Frothy white cap with some good retention.

S: West coast in style. Resin, pine, and light citrus. Floral and spicy hops as well. Well rounded beer with a developed hop profile. Great beer and almost a more brazen Sculpin

T: Quite balanced with delicate malts and a firm hop backing. I can't believe that I haven't reviewed this one yet. Just a solid example of a west coast IPA

MF/O: Thick and creamy feel to it, passive carbonation. Just a solid beer - a go-to.

crisp and golden, no cloudiness

funky wheat/ipa hybrid; cherries and salted almond brittle in the nose

taste is deceptive. feels like an ipa, has the bite of an ipa, but I can definitely see how it stems from a pale wheat/hefe tradition. to be honest, this is hard to label, it's unique and delicious.

the mouthfeel is superb: mellow and clean.

i like this beer. don't know how many i could drink in a row or if i'd have it often, but it's a good idea to throw a bottle of A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' into your rotation.

A - Head of about a finger and white - maybe some slight yellow in it. Body is wheaty/orange in color and not quite clear.

S - Delicious smooth hops. Some orange and floral scents. Sweet caramel malts.

T - Just a good balance of orange, grapefruit, banana, and cloves. Well rounded and smooth. The hops are so smooth and taste delicious.

M - Great carbonation on a medium body makes for a great pale ale.

O - A very smooth well balanced beer. Sure I like the Lagunitas yeast strand so I may be partial, but still great. Nice and hoppy but not bitter. Has a sweetness to it.
