4.4/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Six pack purchased for $8.99. Poured vigorously into a snifter.

A: Pours a hazy golden, copper color with a white fluffy 1" head. The head faded into a fairly thick lacing as the beer was consumed.

S: Big punch of grapefruit, peach, citrus, pine and fresh cut grass. I also picked up an underlying maltiness that plays well with the hops. I would say it does smell pretty similar to Sucks.

T: Grapefruit, orange rind, pine, onion, and pretty dry mouthfeel on the front and middle on the tounge, which follows with a really smooth citrusy blast of hops on the finish.

M: Pretty dry with a medium amount of carbonation. At a beer clocking in at 8.5% I didn't really notice the heat.

O: With anything Lagunitas I knew I was going to have a high quality, tasty beer. I didn't realize how much this beer was going to bowl me over. As a huge Sucks fan this beer is a very close cousin in pretty much every category to me.

4.79/5  rDev +13.5%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a 12oz bottle (Julian date 160 = June 9, 2014) into a Spiegelau stemmed tulip glass

A- Pours an absolutely clear golden with a full, one finger worth of a creamy, white head...exactly what I would anticipate a world-class DIPA to appear. Being that Wheat Malt is a substantial component of the malt bill, I am impressed with its clarity (5.0)

S- Assuming rye malt is a component of the recipe, there is an immediate spicy component followed by mango, citrus and melon. A Little Sumpin' Extra delivers both in appearance and olfactory hues (2-for-2)! (5.0)

T- The malt backbone is present, yet the hops balance it all out into an orgasmic frenzy! Although amped from the standard Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale, this is its own beast (much like Sumpin' Wild). Spicy, Hoppy and Malty all in the right places. The 8.5% ABV falls completely under the RADAR. (4.75)

M- Sweet malt backbone followed by a relatively mild citrus rind bitterness makes this extremely balanced and easy on the palate for a DIPA. The carbonation is unassuming, yet allows the flavors from the malt and hops to infiltrate the palate, creating a repeat-ability that makes this a highly drinkable offering.(4.5)

O- Although brewed at least once before, this is my first take on the brand. After one bottle, I am hooked and this stands to be my favorite of the 'Sumpin' trilogy (year-round, Wild and Extra!). Although a perennial fan of Hop Stoopid, I would like for this to replace it in Lagunitas' year round offerings as it is that good...shame on me for not picking up more than a 6-Pack! (4.75)

4.31/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours almost orange with a nice head that left lacing on the glass. The smell was full of hops with floral and citrus notes. My favorite part of the beer was the taste (as it should be) where I found a lot of great hop flavor in the beginning that quickly faded away to a crisp and refreshing finish. It was very pleasant and I loved the earthy aftertaste it left. The mouthfeel was solid as well. Overall I would definitely recommend.

4.14/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12oz into a tulip. Pours a clear honey color w/ a sudsy white head, patchy lace.

Aroma is bright clean juicy piney/citrusy hops and sweet pale malt.

Taste is big bitter resinous hops commingled with a touch of sweet booze. Plenty of pale neutral malt to balance the copious hops.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slick, oily. Leaves behind a resinous bitter aftertaste.

Overall another nice DIPA from Lagunitas. A little hot for my taste, but enjoyable.
