On tap at the Local Break. Gold color and a hoppy/peach nose. Subtle fruit flavors come through with a hint of sweetness and a touch of grapefruit bitterness on the finish. This beer was easy drinking and surprisingly enjoyable.

A little sumpin ale pours a copper color with a small and long lasting head. Hippy aroma with hints of sweetness. Hoppy yet sweet flavor. Good body and feel. Overall not bad hoppy wheat beer.

Pours a clear yellow color with a thin white head. Smell reminds me of a Sierra Nevada pale ale, piney and citrusy. Initial taste is citrus, grapefruit, then hoppy bitterness aftertaste. The more I drink, the more the hops kick in. Overall, I place this more in the league with a SN Torpedo, ABV included, still a solid beer that is in between a pale ale and a true IPA.

I love this beer. The price in my area makes it the most affordable bang for the buck around. It is a gorgeous light-golden ale with a good amount of hops. I've been drinking this for a while, and it makes me smile every time. The taste is crisp, and it has a medium mouthfeel. The aftertaste is extremely pleasant. Highly recommended.

This was silky smooth on feel, golden and clear with juiced flavors that were not overly juiced. Pale ale with nice balance. Breaking it down, this is good all-around.

Wow. What a brew. This beer is sumpin’ else!

Light gold in color.

As far as the scent.... so much in this brew! Citrus, peach, mango, wheat, pine, lots of pineapple.

A good wheat pale. On the IPA side more with the present hoppiness. Really nice wheat bitterness, with almost a sweetness to it that’s really nice. Crisp and refreshing beer, great Lagunitas pale.
