I found this 22oz brown bottle at Sal's in Addison, IL for a great price of just $4.99 a bottle. I guess this is the 6th in their series of Little Sumpin' varieties. No freshness date but the website says they release this in September and this is only October so unless this is from last year's batch I'm assuming this is pretty fresh.

The beer poured a deep gold color and made 3-fingers worth of whispy white head that lasted several minutes and left behind a ton of lacing.

This smells like an IPA. Really nice citrus hop aroma - mostly orange and grapefruit.

Big grapefruit hop flavor with plenty of wheat malt for sweetness and balance. There is also a touch of orange and piny hops behind the grapefruit and an even smaller dose of Belgian yeast flavor, but nothing so funky as to earn its name of "wild ale". Delicious, but more IPA-ish than anything else.

Smooth and medium bodied with really low carbonation. This stuff will leave a bitter hop aftertaste in your mouth long after you swallow, but that is not a bad thing.

For an 8.85% alcohol beer they sure hide it well. Not much alcohol taste at all and it really goes down easy.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Golden/amber in color with a monsterous rocky white head that forms huge chunks and last forever. The head actually rises above the rim of the glass and looks like icecream above the icecream cone.
Smells like a fruit coctail. Tangerines, mango and papiya.
Very fruity flavors of tangerine, mango and papiya. Honey and a sharp graininess to balance it all out. Very tasty beer.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slick and oily.
Very drinkable. I love this beer and it's a style that I usually do not like.
