Pours a nice golden color not a lot of head but a nice ring around the glass as I drink it down. Smells great hops, some sweetness could just smell this all day but i'd rather drink it :) Got a nice hop bite and bitterness with the belgian sweetness also shining through. Mouth feel is great hop aftertaste lingers and easy, easy drinking. Got the last 6er of this at my local bottle shop wish there were a few more pack left lol

Nice beer. In a pint glass the beer was gold in color with a thick white fluffy head. There was a good amount of lace.

Earthy aroma, fruity and spicy. Sweet aroma. There was a strong hops presence.

Funky taste, yeasty and spicy. Apples. Still pretty hoppy.

I thought this was a very nice example of a Belgian IPA. Good balance between the yeast and the hops.

I'll drink this beer anytime.

Somewhat cloudy amber, nice fluffy head. Excellent retention and lacing.
The Belgian yeast gives of lots of fruit and spice characteristics. Apple and banana, clove, some citrus. I can smell lots of fruity hops in here. Nice aroma.
The strong hop flavor and Belgian yeast clash. It just doesn't work. Way too estery.

"Belgian IPAs" are always a bit strange, but can sometimes be enjoyable. The Belgian yeast esters are just too strong here and make it a confusing beer.

The brew pours a golden-amber color and
is capped by a decent white head that leaves a solid amount of lace. Citrus hop aromas burst from the glass and are met with an earthy yeastiness and honey and wheat notes as well, with just a little peppery spiciness. Fruity and malty upfront, the beer blends peppery notes and Belgian yeast flavors amazingly well before ending with a hoppy kick. Medium in body and moderate in carbonation, Lil Sumpin Wild is one of the best Belgian IPAs we have had. Lagunitas seems to not know how to make a bad beer!

Cheers!

A cloudy pour, looks like a belgian ipa should, bonus points for the crazy amount of lace. Smell has a big rush of lemon and banana, big belgian yeast character, nice hoppiness. The taste is identical, huge belgian flavor upfront and then an awesome wave of grapefruit and mango wash over the palate on the finish. Love this beer, love this brewery.
