A heavy beer, I thought best had at a later dinner. Pours orange tinged body with a little retained white head. Mildly hoppy aroma. Big mouthfeel, initial glasses of it demonstrated the yeast, followed by the hops and finished by a lot of malts. The third glass was mostly malt and just a variation of a double IPA, stong American ale. Still good drinkability, but would like to have enjoyed more of the yeast and all the complexity it promises.

On tap at Instant Replay in Canoga Park, CA.

Pours a clear orange-yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A latticework of tiny dots and foamy rings of lace of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and Belgian yeast. Taste is much the same with an alcohol kick on the finish. There is a mild citrus zest bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

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

Rich golden amber with a nice amount of hazziness to it. An enormous head of white foam lifted up to a height of around three inches before settling down to a full inch of white and sticky foam that clung to the glass the rest of the session, nice carbonation streaking up from the inside.

The aroma was very solid. Nice light fruit notes, with a very well hidden Brett profile. Light grains and a touch of a fresh grass like hoppiness sneaking in as it warmed up. Light and delicate flavor with a crispness that was very nice. Clean with little in the way of funk showing up here. Light grains and some peach and pear/apple notes that were followed up nicely with the slightest amount of sour flavor, just enough to let you know it was there. Smooth and mellow with a light feel that was well carbonated and easy to drink.

4.1/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: The pour is a nice golden orange color with a surprisingly small white head and some minimal lacing.

S: A big burst of citrus hop aroma up front gives this one much more of an IPA feel. With a little warming up, some of the yeast esters come through and I pick up some bubblegum, pepper, and spicy yeast esters. That said, the hops are still dominant.

T: Fairly heavy on the spices (yeast contributions) with some great fruitiness. Tangerine and grapefruit are the biggest fruit notes I get, and the bitterness is there, but does not overwhelm the beer.

M: The body is medium with a carbonation that borders medium and high--not over-carbonated, however.

D: I wasn't exactly sure what the "wild" character of this beer was upon drinking it, though some research has shown this beer did spend some time with Brett. At this point, it's like most of the other good Lagunitas beers: hoppy.

4.25/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives with a clear amber color capped by a nice head that leaves quite a bit of lacing behind

Smell: Very hoppy aroma, with citrus dominant

Taste: Bready, up front, and while the citrus is notable, up front, there are a number of other tropical fruit flavors as well, including pineapple and papaya; in the middle is where Sumpin' Wild happens, with a yeasty, candi sugar and bubblegum character that becomes increasingly yeast-influenced, after the swallow, as the complexity of the Westmalle yeast adds character

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: West Coast IPA meets BSPA and that makes it different from the typical Belgian IPA as the citrusy hop character is more forward

Pours a bright golden yellow with a bit of haze and a nice white head. With the initial whiff, it's pretty clear that this is a special beer and maybe already the best I've encountered from Lagunitas. Off the nose alone, one of the better Belgian IPA's that I have ever encountered. Nice mustiness along with some earthy, floral, and spicy hops. Taste is quite similar, with the yeast and hops performing a delicate dance. Neither comes out on top. Great balance between the yeast and hops. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a dry finish. Drinkability is superb. A fairly complex beer with enough going on that each sip brings new elements. My favorite so far from the "Sumpin'" series.

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

A: The beer is clear dark golden yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that quickly died down to a thin layer of bubbles that consistently covered the surface.
S: There are moderate aromas of citrus hops in the nose--smells of grapefruit stand out in particular.
T: The taste initially starts out with notes of malty sweetness that quickly transitions into a moderate amount of bitterness with flavors of grapefruit and spices. There are some hints of alcohol in the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. There is some dryness in the finish.
D: The beer is quite drinkable considering its strength because for the most part the alcohol is well masked.

22 ounce bottle - $3.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clear, orange-amber body with an inch or so of whitish froth.

Smell: Sweetish, hoppy aroma with notes of diced pineapple, white grapefruit, resinous floral, and tangerine-flavored children's aspirin. Punctuated by peppery spice accents and a trail of liquor. Some honey-brushed, bready wheat and pale malt hints underneath.

Taste: Lightly sweet pale malt backbone along with a touch of breadiness takes a detour towards black peppercorns before heading off to the hop flavors of tangy tropical fruits and citrus fruits with an orangey hop taste perhaps derived from an inclusion of Amarillo in the mix. Very small pinch of crushed aspirin tablets. Robust bitterness. Hints of Bosc pears and florals make themselves known. Longly bitter, heated finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus body. As with the Extra, it's all at once oily and sticky on the tongue.

Drinkability: The original still remains my favorite of the Sumpin' Series. Many of the Lagunitas hoppy brews just run together for me. This is good though, and, quite importantly, sold at a good, welcome price.

Poured into a stemmed glass a slight chill hazed burnt orange with a big blooming white head that settled very slowly into a creamy mass.The first thing I notice is a big blast of citric hop,I detect some Amarillo I believe,then the phenols come rollin in with some clove-like spice.I really wanted to like the flavors more but I couldnt get myself to,started out great with a shot of citric and aspirin-like hops,but the phenols take over with slight funk and spice.Alot of people like Belgian yeast flavor...I dont.I like the hop profile and its a well made beer,just not a Belgian yeast fan.

Served in a snifter at The Firkin.

Finally, I can put a face to the name. It pours a clear golden straw topped by a finger of white micro-foam. The nose comprises honeydew, grapefruit, pine, and sweet caramel. The taste is very similar, though the melon is decidedly meeker here, and the caramel seems a bit more assertive, even if it's still definitely subservient to the hoppier aspects. The body is light-ish, with a light carbonation and a rather liquid feel. Overall, a solid brew, one I hope to have later on down the road.

4.58/5  rDev +11.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance: clear amber-orange body with golden highlights. Median sized bubbles rise steadily beneath a frothy head of off-white. Good head retention. Nice lacing.

Aroma: Floral and a touch citrusy. Sharply mineralish with crushed granite and 'tang'. Hoppy. Sweetly malty with straightforward grain. Fruity pineapple.

Taste: Fruity (pineapple, berries, apple) and malty upfront with some herbs, minerals, and peppery spice coming from the yeast. The mineralish side almost suggests a tanginess like that of a blue-veined cheese. It's leafy and floral, and a touch citrusy and piney going into the finish. Suddenly it becomes very dry, but not overly bitter - a perfectly balanced transition away from all of the sweetness at the beginning. Some mild phenolic lingers amidst the bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a dextrinous edge that's cut through by a standard carbonation. It's not quite crisp, but there's enough carbonation to cut through the body and help clean it up in the finish. Any more carbonation would cut through that dextrinous malt leaving it seemingly too thin. Nice.

Drinkability: Given that it's 8.85% abv I was surprised to find it served in Imperial pints at my local; but that didn't stop me from having two in a row! My friends (who are not quite as well versed in beer) enjoyed it as well, and it was agreed that although it's not "WILD", it does have a good deal of character going for it. It's easy to consume, and remarkably compelling to the experienced taster, leaving me to give it the highest rating for drinkability. I've bought a few bottles, and given its price to satisfaction ratio I may just put out the hundred or so bucks for a whole case to cellar.

22oz bottle. Wow, usually I can at least understand the majority of the ramblings on the periphery of Lagunitas' labels - but in this case, I would have to be a brew master or Belgio-phile (?) to comprehend this bomber's explications.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium golden hue, with two fingers of foamy, quite creamy eggshell-white head, which leaves some broad chunks of fuzzy patched lace around the glass as it very slowly sinks away.

It smells of sweet and bitter citrus fruit - orange and grapefruit - with an underlying pine astringency, a faint beginner's funk, and mild Belgian sugar and spices - clove and white pepper. The taste is big herbal citrus hops up front, a solid sweet, sugary fruity malt, a touch of earthy barnyard, followed by some spicy, yeasty, leafy bitterness. No real noticeable warming at all.

The carbonation is moderate, and kind of airy at times, the body medium-full in weight, verily smooth, and more than a bit creamy. It finishes still quite sweet, the malt holding strong, with an almost equal fragrant citrus/funky yeast bitterness.

Well, truth in advertising, I can always appreciate - a stock (in a good way) Lagunitas strong ale, leavened by the addition of some old-school monk-yeast. The result: exactly what one would expect - a slightly yeast-tinged (a Westmalle joint, yo), usual suspect hop and malt bomb. An interesting experiment, what with the familiar West Coast eye-opener, melded onto a sudden realization of noble Belgian heritage. Wild, in doubt? 'Wild', indeed.

Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Wild, Petaluma, California...let's have some POF!

Appearance: clear, amber coloration, big, pillowy white head.

Beautiful aromatics, wild and funky, some fruit and spice around, but the mainly other parts of the farm at work in this nose.

Taste: smoo-ooth, with plenty of character. Strong spices, black pepper, soft citrus, a bed of tasty pale malt. Delicious. Westmalle yeast strain bringing the goods, speeding utter tastiness all over the overwhelmingly pleasing and super-duper happiness bringing kind of ale.

Heat comes up and spikes the palate as we get further in...plenty of spice, matched with the mellow fruit factor. Tasty, tasty, tasty, yum, yum, yum.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a bright gold color, with a thin off-head that fades quickly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, Belgian yeast, citrus and light caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out strong burst of grassy hops bitterness followed by some citrus sweetness. Then the Belgian yeast and hearty malt character breadiness comes in to create a good balance. There’s a touch of alcohol in the background and the hops bitterness tends to reassert itself in the finish. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, strong kick, good representation of style, this beer is exactly what you would expect from a Lagunitas-style IPA with Belgian yeast. It’s a good flavorful beer to drink for a long time.

Review from notes. Had this a month or so ago...

Pours a bright/clear honey color with 2 fingers of pearl colored head. Good head retention & lacing

S: Pears, peaches, plus citrus & piney hops

T: Follows the nose, some earthy notes & grapefruit up front. Dryness, grapefruit & herbal hops once warm, a little bit of cherry & pears as well. Finishes with citrus & piney hop & little more pear

MF: Medium bodied, smooth carbonation & good balance

Drinks easy, nice effort. Somewhat reminds me of Boulevard Tank#7

The beer pours a beautiful golden color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is great! Wow, what a complex aroma; sweet pale and Munich malt scent; lots of citrus hops; and a wonderful Belgian yeast character. The taste is good. It has a crisp, citrus hop bitterness along with a solid pale malt base and tremendous Belgian yeast finish. It's really hoppy; almost overly so. The Belgian yeast adds tons of complexity. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a full bodied beer with good carbonation. This is a tasty beer. I love hops, but I wish it wasn't so bitter. The yeast esters take a backseat, unfortunately.

Served in a DFH signature glass. This is probably the best BELGIAN IPA IPA IPA I've ever had, IPA.

Beer is clear and orange with a decent white head of small and medium bubbles that leaves some lacing on the glass. Carbonation is moderate and steady, looks really good.

Aroma is amazing, seriously, its totally citrus hops, eclipses whatever contribution the yeast may have added to the aroma.

Beer is mildly sweet at the front, nice and hoppy in the middle, good fruit citrus flavors in the middle, and dry and bitter at the end. I don't really like the dryness of it but otherwise its quite quite good. I would definitely have this again. Its a great IPA, not too bitter, not too dry, nice hops, and mild sweetness. "Balanced" i suppose.

Had this on tap at the Fort Worth Flying Saucer Fall Beerfest.

The beer pours a copper color with a white head. The aroma is pretty fruity with some notes of pineapple and other citrus. I also get some toffee and caramel malt and a strong Belgian yeast component. The flavor is more of the same, with some bready malt and some grapefruit and orange citrus notes. The yeast is also very present and adds some strong Belgian character to the beer. Medium carbonation and medium mouthfeel.

Not really anything too wild about this beer, but it is a good drink.

Pours a super white fluffy head of 1 finger that leaves a slight messy lacing. THe beer is a somewhat hazy golden wheat orange nectar color.

Nose is beautiful. It starts with some golden malts, some Belgian somewhat strong malty aromas, adding a little sweetness and almost a hint of light candi sugar. Under that is a fuse of a nice hop and wild combination. It's really hard to describe. There's plenty of fruit, tangerine, peach, mango, pineapple, some tropical and citrus hops with hints of grassy hops. Also some very light yeasty almost funk aroma, that doesn't really have funk. It's like lots of bottle conditioning with strange Belgian yeast strain that was once crossed with Lacto or something. A slight dry farmhouse aroma. It's dreamy.

Taste comes with more of the same as the nose. This time it starts with a spicy hop character. Some light citrus and pine on the hops, but more tropical fruit, citrus, etc. Some light fruit too, little tangerine, touch of orange peel, little peach. Some sweetness coming from some light Belgian strong malty flavors, touch of bready taste, just a hint. Again more of the almost wild tasting Belgian yeast strain, adding some light dry farmhouse like flavors, an almost funk that never really comes. A little astringency starts to come through, but remains manageable. As it finishes it dries more, adding to the bitterness and the lingering hop flavors, more spicy and even a little musty. As it dries it starts to get more of a dried Belgian light candi sugar taste surprisingly. A lingering musty slight hop oil and little astringency, as well as dry slightly yeasty funk, it's almost as if that yeasty funk is adding it's own bitterness.

The mouth is medium bodied with decent carbonation.

Drinkability is decent, it doesn't drink like 8.85% at all, and dries well. However, a slight lingeirng astringency and bitterness, as well as that lingering yeasty almost funk flavor are there.

A solid pour into my 25cl tulip glass produces a four-figner thick, pale tan tinged head that leaves quite a bit of lacing on the sides of my glass. The beer is a gold to light copper hue that shows a brilliantly clear, rich gold hue when held up to the light. Ahh, the aroma is nicely hoppy; it smells of expressive tangelo oils (like tearing through the skin of a super ripe tangelo), ample lychee, bright kumquat zest and a touch of dank herbaceous character towards the finish. It is really quite striking how much this smells of tangelo oils, I am really enjoying that aspect of the nose. Perhaps a hint of clove adds some complexity to the hop character, but the Westmalle yeast is fairly muted here. The malt, while definitely subtle, is a touch more noticeable than the yeast; it contributes supporting notes of pale malt cracker notes and perhaps a hint of dried hay that mixes in with the hop character.

Lightly sweet tasting with an ample citrusy hop fruitiness up front, as the beer moves across the tongue it picks up flavors of juicy fruit bubble gum, a big lychee note and tangelo zest, while the finish has just a hint of herbal character and menthol. The middle while it seems all hop influenced is actually accentuated by a light clove character. Not overly bitter up front, but the bitterness grows through the finish and finally lingers on the palate with a nice biting note that is accentuated by some phenolic yeast notes. Quite light bodied and drinkable, dangerously so when you consider the strength of this beer, I really love how drinkable this is and it is likely the biggest influence of the yeast character; this certainly has the drinkability of a good Belgian beer and quite dangerously so given the strength of this beer, but it has just enough texture and body that the fruity hop character is wonderfully accentuated. The dominant hop fruitiness really is just infused from the beginning to end of each sip, it really is the most noticeable part of the flavor from beginning to end. A touch of yeast derived bubble-gum notes seem to accentuate the juicy-fruit flavors from the hops and also the bright tropical fruit flavor that this beer has.

Judged as a purely hop-driven beer (which this is, despite the yeast), the nose on this beer is fantastic; so vibrantly fresh and hoppy with it smooth, über-fruit character and just enough balancing herbal character to keep things interesting. The yeast character is a bit more noticeable in the flavor, but it is still a weak supporting cast member when compared to the hops, but at least it does a good job with the role it does play; it is not overly phenolic, nor does it contribute flavors that clash with the hop notes, instead it integrates quite nicely with the dominant hop character. Some part of me wishes that this had more characteristics of the Westmalle yeast strain present, but in my hop-heart I know that I would not have liked the beer nearly as much even though this would have ended up a more complex. So yes, this is simplistically hop focused, but there is just enough malt and yeast character to support the hops and to really let them shine here. I can't help but really enjoy this beer; and I think I might have found a beer from this brewery to rival fresh Hop Stoopid.

This seems a bit of a hybrid to me. There are definitely Belgian tones here, but they are subdued and smooth and not overly showy, besides a somewhat pronounced yeasty thing. The other side of this (opposite the Belgian one) are the distinct hoppy tones. Which I guess would make this...a Belgian IPA. Just my opinion. And a pretty nice one too; except it's a bit boozy.

Pours a bright honey golden hue with a bright white head, speckled scattered lacing. Aroma has strong American hops with citrus/pine, and tropical fruit notes. Seems like they are following suit and making a hoppy Belgian style west coast IPA. Westmalle yeast strain, brings out banana/pineapple spicy esters. Flavor is competing with the Belgian yeast strain and American brash hop bitterness, sometimes this works sometimes it's a rough combo. Really great tasting version here spicy Belgian yeast with tropical fruit edges/banana/spice and upfront hops with citrus/grapefruit tones. Mouthfeel is medium bodied a tad oily with hops and smooth bodied carbonation. Drinkabilty is nice but after 22 ounces I'm good even splitting with a friend is a good idea but the flavors here worked well together.

Pours a near-clear gold. Lumpy eggshell white head that leaves a thick ring of lace after each sip.

Fruity (sweet) with a grapefruit hop aroma.

Lots of effervescence on the tongue. Good pale malt start but it fades quickly to a strong hop of black pepper and grapefruit rind. Could easily pass for a Belgian-style IPA. Rich feel to the mouth despite the high carbonation. The finish has a bit of piney hop to it

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ, I haven't seen this in the Southland in bottles yet, so I was excited to see this show up at Beachwood,

A: Pours a hazy light orange, with a rocky white head, above average retention, thick lace.

S: Fairly IPA like, hop heavy with a lot of grapefruit and reffer, mild Brett notes.

T: The Brett-style flavours really takes over in the taste, reminds me of a cleaner Wild Devil. Nice hop character, lots of citrus mixed with the great leather barnyard yeast notes make for a great mix of flavours.

M: Medium-bodied, crisp, fairly smooth, I liked the carbonation a lot here, very firm.

D: A fantastic beer from Lagunitas, I just hope that it shows up in bottles soon so I can have it again.
