3.83/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a light copperish orange with 2 fingers of slightly off white head. Retention is okay, lace is moderate.

S- A nice balance of sweet malt and citrus hops. Lots of Amarillo in this. There's an underlying bready quality as well and a touch of the 8.74% abv.

T- This is sweet throughout and then the hops catch up with you in the end. It's bitter but not overwhelming.

M- Everything feels good in the mouth. Goes down smooth, finish is dry.

D- I think I like it's little sister better, but this is a nice DIPA. I just couldn't put as many of these down as I could of the sumpin sumpin ale.

4.23/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a golden amber color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a nice cap that leaves decent lacing

S: Some nice hoppy notes up front, encompassing some citrus, pine, and fruity notes. The wheat is definitely quite present as well. The alcohol lends some backing estery notes

T: Starts off with a nice mix of the wheat and hop notes. The pine and citrus come through nicely, along with a bit of fruity and spicy notes from the esters and alcohol. Finishes with a touch of the alcohol and a moderate bitterness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A little prickly

O: As others have said, this is almost like a combination of Sucks and Sumpin' Sumpin' in terms of the wheat and hop presence. Maybe even a little Stoopid can be found in there as well. Solid brew all around, and quite drinkable for being 8.5%. Definitely get some, especially if you're into the Lagunitas flavor profile

If you like Sucks or A Little Sumpin' Sumpin', you'll like this. It looks, smells and more or less tastes like Little Sumpin' Sumpin' but has that dry finish, not quite equal to Sucks, but pretty close to it. If I had to compare it to something besides other Lagunitas products, it would be DirtWolf but with a cleaner taste and a dryer mouthfeel. Again I'm amazed at how cheap and available this is, also. $43 a case here in eastern PA! If "Availability" was a category, this would definitely rate equally with Heady Topper and Hop Drop & Roll. Make "Price" a category it would leave 'em in the dust. Excellent beer at an excellent price while supplies last!
