I like the regular Sumpin more but this may be available in a keg so I'm test driving tonight. I'm a Belgian IPA rookie so the wild yeast strain does take a bit getting used to. It kind of tastes like a really really good Blue Moon. The color, body and hop profile are typical Lagunitas which is always a good thing. Definitely worth a sixer and maybe a keg. Now I've got to score a lucky13 since that comes in kegs too.

I had this for the first time last night. I have always liked the beers from Lagunitas. They do a great job with their hops and consistency. Although I liked this beer, it was tough for me to notice the "wild" or "belgian" influence. To me the beer tasted similar to the other IPAs (which are really good) they make and didn't have the wild yeast characteristics. I was expecting spice, clove, bubble gum, etc and although I could tell there was something different about this one, the hop profile seemed to just dominate the entire beer. So, in all, the beer was really enjoyable, it just didn't have the "wild" character I was expecting.
