Pretty goldish orange color, clear, and topped with a nice looking bubbly, slick white head. Aroma is full of tart and sweet fruit over a solid malty base. Candy pineapples, orange, zesty spices, mint, and something along the lines of fresh soap. Taste is just the right kind of sweet, embedded in a plethora of flavory goodness with a bright, smooth bitter hop tingle. There's a nice candied fruit variety, both tropical fruits and sweet citrus. Chewy caramel and bready malts are all over too. A very nice combo of all sorts of things. I would certainly have this again. Mouthfeel is slick, syrupy, smooth, and chewy. A tad resiny too. The body is medium-full, but on the full side. This is also quite easy to drink. Lots of tasty things going on, and the abv isn't slowing me down one bit.

A - Perfectly clear golden color, sudsy 1 finger head. Decent lacing

S - Hoppy smells of pine and citrus

T - Bitter pine hops right up front, rounded off by just a tiny bit of caramel sweetness. A little bit of a medicinal taste creeps in here as well

M - Moderately prickly carbonation, good mouthfeel. Alcohol is really hard to find, even given the high ABV

O - The medicinal quality in the taste is a bit off putting, but not a bad beer by any means, just not my favorite

More proof Lagunitas is a world class brewery. Served at a good temperature and a nice foamy frothy, off white head that soon settled down and a whole load of lace. Color is a clear, rich amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is hop, bread dough, wet grass, caramel, malt. Flavor is like nose; hop on top (?!), followed underneath with slight sweetness, good carbonic tang and, perhaps, a yeast bitterness that all told make this a good drinking beer. Body and carbonation are faultless. Finish is like flavor, on the long side, and a some alcohol warmth. Beer On!

A - Pours a really clear golden orange color with decent head that dissipates to a thin layer and good lacing.

S - Smell of piny hops, yeast and some spices.

T - Really piny. A bit fruity as well that blends with the yeast and spices. Definitely a Belgian-style IPA, the piny hops are definitely forward in the taste.

M - Medium bodied, a little oily from the hops. Nice carbonation and relatively easy-drinking for a 9.4% beer.

O - I found the Little Sumpin' Wild to be an interesting take on the Belgian IPA style. Pretty hop-forward and in your face, Sumpin Wild is good-value, distinctive and enjoyable if not necessarily the best Belgian IPA I've had.
