I am a big fan of Little Sumpin' Sumpin' so it was a natural choice for me to give this a try. My wife, who isn't an IPA fan, likes to have a few sips of this one. It has a great hop character with a lot of grapefruit flavor up front from the hops. The beer pours well and retained its head all the way to the bottom of the glass. I like this beer, but without comparing them side by side, I can't see the big difference between the regular Sumpin Sumpin and the extra. That's not to say that there isn't a difference, but it didn't jump out at me. That said, I'd drink it again (and again)

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.
