Bottle poured into my New Belgium globe

Golden body,clear, with a nice white head on top, some light lacing on the glass. Smells very hoppy, big citrusy notes with some tropical fruit flavor as well. Tastes a bit more balanced than the aroma would indicate. A nice citrusy hop flavor mingles with a solid pale malt backbone. Medium bodied with a nice amount of carbonation. I wouldn't mind drinking this one again. It's a solid beer for sure. That being said I wouldn't go nuts trying to seek it out but the bang for your buck is high on this one.

A - Not as expected at all. Poured pure yellow with a white foamy head. Expected darker or hazier

S - Mostly hops but small bit of wheat a pislner malt sort of smell. Ok hope it's hoppy.

T - Well it met my exceptions as being a pretty hoppy brew but with a name like Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale I expected more than little flavor. Mostly taste like orange rinds and pine with no real citrus or grapefruit undertones.

M - Light to medium bodied. Drinkable.

D - Well I love Lagunitas but it seems only for their big beers. Their IPA doesn't seem hopped enough and this was just a hopped up pale ale. Pretty bland yet still love the company.

Poured from bottle into pint glass and enjoyed with a fantastic Trader Jo's pizza topped with sauteed spinach, olives, onions, and garlic.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, orange-gold body sporting a full inch of off-white foam. Light lacing on the descent.

Smell: Smells of wheat, flowery orange, citrus, and a small hint of pine.

Taste:A very light mix of wheat and light grain. Small hints of citrus and pine. Exactly what it needs to be for a stronger pale wheat beer.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: Such a great beer for it's price, If I want a good beer for a good price I generally go to Lagunitas, or sometimes Abita.
