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.

4.5/5  rDev +6.1%

Appearance: Golden, clear, holds a quarter finger of tight white head.

Smell: Heady hops are a bit leafy, strong sweet undertone with whiffs of alcohol.

Taste: Dump truck of west coast hops with a big wheaty base. It's Little Sumpin Sumpin on steroids.

Mouthfeel: Medium heavy, slight chew, oily

Overall: Big bruiser, demands small sips but encourages big quaffs.

What a great beer!
This IPA has a big punch, but not with the aggressively hoppy flavors that a lot of doubles do. It's flavorful and smooth and is incredibly drinkable.
