3.6/5  rDev -14.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Look – clear light amber color, with about two fingers’ worth of off-white colored foam that dissipates somewhat quickly.

Smell – very sweet smell, almost like orange juice or grapefruit juice.

Taste – slightly hoppy, but most noticeable is the citrusy taste, which indeed still seems to be that of orange or grapefruit.

Mouthfeel – pretty well balanced, but leans a little more on the watery side.

Overall – not a bad brew, and not bad tasting at all. Tasting it in the fall now, but it was probably aimed at being a summer beer, which makes a lot of sense.

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

Appearance: Hazy golden.
Smell: sweet, citrus, hoppy.
Taste: This is only my 2nd review...I would have guessed IPA or APA, not wheat, but there is a crispness I haven't tasted in either. Very tasty.
Drinkability: Wouldn't have guessed 7%. I'm drinking this fast.

Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale has a yellow colour and a good head that lasts. It has a nice hoppy smell with a hint of citrus. The taste is hoppy with a hint of citrus bitterness. It's nice and foamy in the mouth and very drinakable. It's delicious.

This is one of my favorite IPAs, even though it's technically classified as an "American Pale Wheat Ale." It has a ton of fresh flavor and depth of body, and the subtle nuances in smell/taste are what really make it great. There are tons of piney-grapefruit honey hops, bread-y yeast, and a bit of fruit flavor like apple and pear. There is also a little sweetness to the hops that balances out the whole beer. I could have this beer again and again.
