On tap at Acme Bar and Pizza in Rochester, NY.
Pours a hazy orange. Enormous head signifies the Belgian ties this beer has. Nice lacing.
Smells like orange rinds, citrus zest, grapefruit, and Belgian yeast.
Similar flavor- the big hop bite and bitterness is undercut by the classic Westmalle yeast strain- a cross between an IPA and tripel. Lightly funky, with some grass and pear tastes. Mildly sour.
Medium bodied, and crisp. Could be a little drier, but I don't expect this style to be that dry.
Another great hoppy offering from Lagunitas. Would like to get this again.

12oz : tulip
Pours a clear, sunset colored golden-orange with thick, billowy white head and thick lacing.
Both the nose and taste start out with Belgian yeast phenols upfront followed quickly by big, juicy hops. Well balanced, and really enjoyable.
Medium+, smooth body, with mild, foamy carbonation.
A very well done Belgian IPA. Great balance in yeast and hop character, with the wheat adding a smooth, creamy body.

Served in a tulip glass.
Appearance: Has a easy dark gold tone to the body, light bubbles but a thick white head maybe half an inch with a vigorous pout of course.
Smell: sweet but potent hop scent. You will love to inhale this brew, pleasant isn't the right word...more like robust ;-)
Taste: complex and oh so good. Has a caramel feel to it with a hardcore floral feel. Slight bready, like a light dose of yeast which makes it feel like meal in a bottle.
Mouth: medium with a slight heaviness to it. Sticky like honey, smooth.
Overall: Lagunitas has to be the IPA king when it comes to variety and versatility. This gem feels like its the cherry on top. I think I just might have to buy another six pack before the they run out by my local spot. Drink up and enjoy, Salud!

I absolutely love the Lil Sumpin' Sumpin' from Lagunitas, thus I am very excited to give this one a try.
A- Golden/light copper with a strong 2.5 finger white head. Slight haze. Nice retention and bountiful lacing.
S- Another delightful smelling brew from Lagunitas. Belgium yeast is accompanied by wheat malt tones. A bold citrus hop bouquet of grapefruit, lemon grass, and mango.
T- Flavors follow nose with the belgium aspects taking the lead. Sweet, but not to the same magnitude of the regular version. A spot on balance of Belgium yeast, wheat malt, and west coast hops.
M- Mid body that sits a little heavier than the regular Sumpin and maybe a touch heavy for the style. Moderate drinkability. Some alcohol warmth, but not at all distracting.
O- A terrific compliment to the regular version. So happy to have found it. I would still prefer Lil Sumpin Sumpin as it is one of my favorites, but this is a great twist with the yeast variation.
$7.99 for 6 pack
