3.75/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 5

pours a clear light amber with about two and a half fingers of white head which disappears pretty quickly and leaves a nice even lacing.

smells really hoppy. mostly a mixture of pine and floral. smells very similiar to other hoppy beers from lagunitas.

taste is an expected balance of sweet malts and hop extract. a little more on the bitter side. tastes very similiar to hop stoopid or lucky 13.

mouthfeel: lots of hop oilyness. really not much else.

very well masked high abv at an affordable price. full flavored and interesting. very sessionable. really couldnt ask for much more in terms of drinkability.

S- clean, piney, hoppy, floral.

T- bitter, citrus/grapefruit, piney, spicy, tangy.

Cheers!

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

12 fluid ounce bottle.
Bottled on June 25th, 2014.

Appearance:
Crystal clear golden body. Fluffy white head collapsed and left great sticky lace throughout.

Smell:
Notes of citrus. Sweeter floral notes broke through as well.

Taste:
Good notes of wheat. Sweet citric hops kicked in towards the finish. Sweet taste overall, not much from the hops other than adequate notes of wheat. The hops hid the relatively high alcohol content pretty well, leaving this brew surprisingly smooth.

Mouthfeel: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Goes down nicely.

Overall: Great version of a good wheat ale. The hops are modest but drive the flavour. Not overpowering and very easy to drink considering the 8.5% alcohol content. Recommended!

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.
