Very Good
Little Sumpin' HazyLittle Sumpin' Hazy
Notes: We're going au naturel for the summer with the classic wheatley-esque-ish-ness brew you know and love. With a special dry-hopping of Cashmere, Citra & Mosaic on a bed of Centennial and Chinook. Juicy, catty, and leaves you with a hop scratch that you can't help but tickle with another taste. Does that clear things up?

Sure, it's fun to throw one of those glossy layers over things... like that Juno Plasta Mandalorian Grain filter. You know, the one that whitens your teeth, lifts your cheekbones, and only shows your good side. And who doesn't love to sit back and geek out on all the tweakage. Like when ya dial up the Clarity, push the Digital Saturation to 11%, and pull back the Fromage Filter by 2x. Then go max out the Attractivo Settings, select a new vacay background and tag your favorite Dogfluencer for those little spikes of serotonin. But sometimes it's nice to let it all be the way it really is. Raw. Unfiltered. Au naturel.

Pours a barely hazy amber with billowing off-white head, a mess of lace trailing. Smell: ripe melon, peach candy, lime zest, tangerine and wheat biscuit in the back. Taste: lemon-lime, pine needles, tangerine, less-ripe melon, white peach. Another good IPA from Lagunitas. Is it hazy enough to proclaim HAZY? Maybe not, though it does nail the lightly fluffy body.

Hazy gold with a medium tall white colored head.

Smells like a pine tree growing oranges. Some flowery scents like a saison. Distinct smell of perfume.

Starts out dry and very citrus. Very dry, something like tasting orange extract on the tip of your finger. Very dry orange flavored ale.

Mouthfeel is light.

Overall this is the answer to too sweet and too hoppy IPA.

Pours a hazy yellow color, with a huge frothy, long lasting lacing head. Sweet, hopy aroma. Flavor is sweet then bitter, fruit and hop flavors. Good body and feel. Overall a very solid, fruity neipa.

12oz bottle, date stamped 180 9 2. Hazy yellow-orange body has a foamy off-white head that settles into a thin layer of froth. Earthy citrus pith aroma - orange and grapefruit perhaps; a bit dank and green. Bold hop forward flavors similar to the aroma: grapefruit, orange, earthy & grassy raw, green hop, passion fruit, melon, and some biscuity grain. Resinous medium body, moderate carbonation, finishes seemingly more bitter than thd 30ibu it is. This one is good, but not great. I enjoyed drinking it, so I'd probably get it again if the price was right.

Poured from a bottle ,almost hazy gold/dark yellow with white head leaving some bubbly lacing. Nose is mild citrus and tropical fruit ,grassy hops with a hint of wheat malt. Taste follows with a smooth and almost creamy dryish finish. Really tasty.

Big rocky white head that hangs around for more than a cup of coffee. Body is the pale yellow Lil sumpin that I know and love, just with a murky haze. Big 'ol tropical hop burst on the nose. Taste offers mango, passion fruit and dragonfly eggs mingling with a malty sweet backbone. Yummy. Creamy mouthfeel with very little bitterness; this is leaning toward da juicy side of things. An excellent beer!

This beer pours a hazy golden straw color and has the most beautiful foamy white head imaginable. There are fruity/piney hop notes on the nose from the base Centennial/Chinook hops, and the Citra/Mosaic/Cashmere hops add dank notes and something that reminds me of Juicy Fruit chewing gum.

As I was ambling through the olfactory senses portion of this review, I was wondering to my beer nerd self if the Citra/Mosaic dry hopping was going to fit the iconic base beer hop profile, because Citra and Mosaic hops are both heavy “Alpha Male” hops, and Centennial and Chinook hops like their moment in the spotlight, too.

On the taste, the Citra/Mosaic hops indeed take the lead, and they play pretty nicely with the base hops, but they’re the slightest bit distracting. This tastes great, but not as great as the original, IMHO.

It is still worth seeking, though, and I’m glad I picked up a 6er. Cant wait to try the rest of them.
