4.15/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a clear yellowy orange with a fluffy stark white head that retains well and leaves good lacing.

Nose is full of WC hops, smells like it might be a touch older than desired, but the hops are still pretty potent and definitely WC in nature.

Hmm. Interesing for sure. The hops aren't quite as intense as i wanted them to be, but there is more to this beer than just that. There is a floral almost spice like note amongst it as well. Hops are still the driving force in this beer. Good bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel is ideal for a DIPA.

Drinkability is also quite solid for the abv. drinks almost like a single IPA. Very good here.

Overall, a very nice stapleish big IPA. Very drinkable and very flavorful. Not as exciting as some better CA IPAs, doesn't quite get up to that "next level", but still very nice. Good beer.

Definitely enjoyed the extra in this Lil Sumpin. The beer poured a nice clear copper with white head that left a nice lacing. The scent had pine and citrus and the taste followed suite. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a great beer and is well worth the try.

4.28/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip. No bottle date is apparent.

A: Pours a light golden honey brown with generous 3 finger white head that settled fairly quickly and left moderate lacing.

S: Pineapple, grapefruit, fresh squeezed orange juice. Pine needles.

T: Dominant citrus fruit flavor. Ripe pineapples, grapefruit. Slight bitter hops.

M: Reasonably light and crisp. Lingering hop bitterness.

O: Outstanding IPA. Reminds me a fair amount of Dirtwolf. I should find a few more bottles for sure.
