4.3/5 rDev +1.4%
One of my favorite beers ever, hits the spot just right at 8.5%, and has loads of hops and flavor I seek out in lighter colored beers.
Pours a medium yellow with a frothy white head that sticks to the glass.
Smell is of BIG citrus, orange, lemon, and grapefruit. Also there are notes of pine and sour apple.
Taste is the same with a huge citrus component. Slight apricot and nectarine flavors as well. Some biscuit and grain, but very fruity.
Feel is just right, can't go left or right with the carb, and a decent flavor per sip value.
Overall I can't stress this more, this is a very nice beer with a big wallop of flavor. It hits the spot, and exceeds expectations.

Intensely hoppy, one of Lagunitas' best.
A: Mine is clear honey-gold, with a mushrooming dense, lasting head and loads of sticky lace, lots of fine bubbles.
S: Ample fresh citrus rind of several types blend with apricot body, summer hay, and drying ganja hops / herbs.
T: Great see-saw between sweet estery tropical fruit and plenty of hop bitterness that goes long on top of a wheat cracker base. Neither the alcohol or sweet bother me, as they are nicely balanced by long bitter peppery, lemony finish.
MF: Plenty of counter balances of bitterness, stinging tingling hops to the sweet, juicy fruit body, keeps beer really interesting and fun to roll round your mouth.
It's a food beer. A must try. up there with Sculpin.

Lush with tropical aromas, I see my life before me. To taste it is to breathe; there is so much citrus, and zests that want to explore me. The mouthfeel, the mouthfeel talks for days as if it adores me. A Lil Sumpin' Extra! is a sneaky success, beautiful with every caress, and a slender thing that I hope never bores me.

Poured into tulip glass- a good three-finger fluffy white head. Clear golden color. Left some good lacing all the way down.
Smell is great with a fruity, citrusy aroma and a touch of bready notes, with a bit of flowery tinges as well.
The taste is just like the smell, with a lot of fruity flavors up front and a nice pine bit to finish.
Mouthfeel is just perfect, almost light for a DIPA, and not harsh, just the right amount of carbonation to let you know you've had something special
Overall, this is another home run from Lagunitas, pretty close to being on a par with Sucks.

Clear light gold with frothy 2 finger head.
Big grapefruit smell, a lot of citrus. All hops here. very much like Sucks.
Taste again is big citrus bite and tang of grapefruit, orange, and lemon. Moderate amount of bitterness. Just right. A little caramel sweetness keeps it from being too bitter. its been a little while since I had Sucks but this seems almost identical.
Moderate carbonation and light to moderate body. not too slick and finishes quite clean for a DIPA.
Really like this beer and fills in he gap of the year when here is no Sucks to be found. Lagunitas does it again.
