Pours bright burnished yellow with clingy white head and sheets of lace. Nose is pure pineapple; floral notes as it warms. More tropical fruit malts with grapefruit and cedar hops. Pine forest floor hit at the end. Medium and sticky, heat's there but not overwhelming.
So sweet! Drinkability takes a hit because it's actually too easy sipping for the ABV - danger! Nice way to go a different direction - pale and fruity - with a big hop profile.
Edit: Drinkability is now Overall, and overall this is gorgeous! +.5%

Appearance - Pours crystal clear and golden orange in color with an off-white 2-finger head. Good retention, resulting in a thin layer of surface suds. Fair lacing around the glass, with good stick.
Smell - Strong citrus notes consisting of grapefuit and orange,
Taste - Follows the nose. Red grapefruit and orange citrus character, along with a consistent pine resin undertone. Malty sweetness that comes across as juicy with a hint of pineapple. Finishes with mild citrus pith.
Mouthfeel - Medium in body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, velvety texture. Goes down with relative easy.
Overall - I did a side-by side with both Sumpin' and the Extra Sumpin', and aside from this being slightly darker in color, slightly maltier and slightly more dank, they are virtually the same beer... so I don't see the point in releasing this one. It's good, but just another "Nickelback song" by Lagunitas in their continuing drive to put out new releases that taste virtually the same as the vast majority of their line-up.
