Beer looks very much like a macro, but the scent is awesome, fresh hops and the taste is superb. Lagunitas sure knows how to brew a beer.

Super good take on 'sumpin! Adds a great wild yeast funk that I didn't know that there was room for in there. The depth of the malt flavor has gone even deeper now. Plus its even stronger and, as usual, you can't possibly tell! Lagunitas knows how to deliver the hammer.

Note: when this was first released I detected more nuances of the wild yeast than I did a few weeks later in different packs. It's not quite as exciting the 2nd or 3rd time around. It's not a replacement for the lil sumpin', but a great twist nonetheless.

Lagunitas's sumpin' subtle, floral honey undertones balance the brewery's characteristic hop profile

This one is just a bit lighter and sweeter than the rest of the ales from this brewery. Nice spiced fruit and floral aroma, same for the flavor up front with a smooth sweety and sticky bitter finish. Yet another good one from Lagunitas!
