Served out of 12oz. bottle and poured into an American pint glass. The 6-pack was purchased at Jewel-Osco. I couldn't find any sort of date stamp on the bottle.

A - a nice orange body with a frothy and somewhat thick white head. Lacing along the entire glass for the duration of drinking the beer.

S - Smells like a hoppy IPA which is what I thought the style of this beer was before looking it up on here. There is deffinately the citrus orange/grapefruit scent to this beer that is typical of an IPA which brought around my confusion.

T - Grapefruit and pine tasting with a hint of wheat. The after taste really brings out the wheat and makes you want to go ahead and drink some more.

M - Bitter and crisp feeling on the mouth with a decent amount of carbonation. Leaves your mouth with a nice dry finish.

O - This is a delicious beer and my favorites from Lagunitas which is hard for me to say because I love almost everything that they make. One of my most favorite beers overall and clear go to when nothing else sounds good.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. I am somehow just now finally getting around to reviewing this one; it has been years since I've last had this beer. Looking forward to having it again. Listed here as an American pale wheat ale, I always thought it was an IPA.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a bright juicy orange body. Light chill haze, with three big fluffy fingers of white head. Very good head retention for the high 7.50% abv. Good thick scattered white lacing. Looks very nice.

S - The nose has all of the traditional aromas of a hoppy IPA - orange, grapefruit, papaya, pine, fruit rinds. Some soapiness present. A juicy tropical fresh smelling aroma.

T - Taste follows the nose - big bitter grapefruit / orange rinds, piney, herbal, hoppy. Lemongrass / wheat presence. The wheat is more noticeable on the taste than on the aroma. Very nicely balanced.

M - Feel is crisp, creamy, and bitter. Resinous piney hops. Dry on the finish. Light bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, a delicious beer from Lagunitas, it's easy to see why this is one of their flagship beers. Deliciously drinkable.

Lagunitas A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale ---4/5.
