Poured into a pint glass, orange due and 1/2 inch head that stays around and sticks to the side. I had just brewed an all Motueka hop IPA that looks almost identical poured, so I have high hopes from the start. Plus, Lagunitas is a great brewery. It still retains a nice hoppy nose although I should have finished off the bottles long ago for a fresher hop flavor. I wasn't expecting a typical west-coast IPA flavor based on the Trappist yeast and knowing it was an attempt at a Belgian version of the regular Little Sumpin', but it remains very west-coast in flavor profile with just bit of the phenolic flavor profile I expected. Still, it is hard to complain when it is absolutely delicious...just not exactly what I expected. Somewhere between fruity and peppery. Nice bite, but not harsh. Overall, well balanced with adequate malt, but finishes appropriately dry. I will definately add this to my regular inventory.
