A – It pours a hazy orange-amber with a moderate off-white head. Thin sticky lacing clings.
S – The aromatics are generally grapefruit-y, overripe citrus and a thickly sweet malt. It smells a tad off-balance.
T – It tastes way off-balance. A ton of grapefruit rind flavors, sweet caramel, and hot alcohol just clash. They just trainwreck.
M – Foamy and full.
D – This is one of the only times I have ever referred to alcohol tasting too strong; it is seldom an issue for me. But when a beer is unbalanced, any element can be irking.

Pours a hazy orangey amber body with a huge chunky beige head which settles out into thick lacing and puddly foam.
Scents of funky orange peel and bicuity yeast and dryish malt.
A bit harsh with very muddled malts and stale tasting citrus-orange hops notes. Finishes with a bitter herbal/ chemical taste.
Medium body and carbonation.
Overall a great disappointment after I enjoyed a lil sumpin sumpin so much. Just kinda over bitter and stale tasting. I would attribute this to age but there's no freshness date and the bottle showed no sign of sitting around label looked new and no dust etc. I'll likely revisit this when I go to the brewery and re review if things are different.

Well just by looking at the numbers, you can tell I think that this an average Imperial IPA. Color was a slightly hazy, golden straw. Not much head or retention. A typical hop aroma and flavor. Body?, yup, just about what you expect. Drinkability is what Imperial IPAs are expected be at, given the strength and tongue numbing aspects of the style. Not a bad beer, I'll have it again, but it seems to represent what Lagunitas has become. I used to look forward to trying new brews from them, but lately they just seem to be going through the motions.

A- poured a nice transparent golden color with alil white foamy head. little lacing.
S- a light candy scent backed up with some hops.
T- lightly sweet with a nice little hop attack. nothing to crazy for a double ipa (hop attack)
M- light to medium bodied. nice carbonation.
D- could drink a bottle then it's on to something next.
Overall- i liked the regular lil sumpin ale better than this one. not to shabby tho.

Pours a two finger white head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Clear light amber color. Nose is pine hops. Flavor is strong pine hop, hoping for a little caramel, don't find any. No doubt this has high IBUs. Label puts the ABV at 7.5%. $2.25 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, MA.

22oz bottle into pint glass.
Clear honey color with just a bit of haze. A one finger head slowly settles to a thick cap, with a solid wall of lacing being left behind.
A very thick hop aroma with a very unique flavor. Very leafy with only a touch of citrus.
The flavor has some light grapefruit notes, but grapefruit seems to jump out in front. There is also a light sticky sugary flavor, that's also in the aroma, that's slightly cloying and lowers the drinkability. Full bodied.
A decent beer but the hop flavor is what stopped me. Not sure what it is but there is a sticky cloyingly sweet flavor and aroma that lowers the enjoyment and drinkability of the beer. I enjoyed A Little Sumpin' Sumpin', but the extra takes a step back in my opinion.

Saw a bottle, bought the bottle... drank the bottle.
- Nice orange hazy brew with a fizzy white head, left lace all about.. a very pretty brew.
- Floral and citrus hops galore.. and smelling a lot like all of their other bomber offerings... with they ever brew something that smells and tastes different? Maybe use a different hop or something?
- Is this Hop Stoopid? Perhaps just a bit more bitter on top of the overdone citrus and tea-like hopping... extract overkill, and sweet.. as if sugar or poprocks were added. I would love to see them try some different hops for a change. This brew is too close to Hop Stoopid. Leaves a sweet sugary film on the lips... like smoking a flavored cigarette.
- Bit oily and sticky.... leaves an earthy grass-like hop aftertaste... a little funky.
- Overall is somewhat drinkable, but the flavor is overdone, and just a bit too much for me. If I wanted a funky earthy hop driven citrus overkill of a brew... I would just grab an India Pelican Ale..
