Poured from a 12oz. bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A:
Looks like your typical APA. Amber with a one and a half finger head that forms into a lovely froth driven ring. Nice bubble movement.

S:
A wonderful hop bouquet dominates the nose. You also pick out grapefruit, orange and pine.

T:
Citrus-like fruity hops. Bitter in the best way possible. Malt and slight pine on the backend. Small amount of alcohol heat. To say the absolute least: incredible.

M:
Medium to medium-heavy in the mouth. Perfect carbonation.

O:
I never thought I'd say it, but I think A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' may have dethroned Gumballhead for my favorite in this style, and that says a lot coming from a guy who would defend FFF to the death.

A- Looks like a glass of liquid gold. A very very small white head to it. That's gone all but just a slight haze over the top of it.

S- Awesome citrus and piney aroma.

T- Smooth smooth smooth...Then there is the after taste of pine and bitter that just rocks! The alcohol is not over whelming until I have had a few sips and then realize there is something to it.

M- Crisp and light. Very refreshing and wonderful IPA.

O- My father just brought this back from California and I'm so glad he did. This is a first class beer.
