Appearance: Clear honey with a hint of rose. Clean white foam.

Smell: Distinct hop aroma with subtle grapefruit notes.

Taste: Light and bitter throughout with spice and citrus flavors.

Mouthfeel: Thin yet has tingly bite on the tongue.

Overall: A nice different IPA to drink on hot day. No heavy flavors jump out or overpower. Overall a recomendable beer.

A - Poured out a clear, golden-yellow color with a one-finger, white head of fizzy foam. It left wispy traces of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of citrus, wheat, pine and some caramel. Great aroma for a wheat beer.

T - It tasted of wheat, yeastiness with a good dose of citrusy bitterness and pine flavors.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is one of the best wheat beers I've ever had. Don't know why it took me so long to buy some of this.

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.
