Fanstastic. Forgot how it poured because I dived in so quick. Very smooth, bitter taste without the tingly tongue sensation. Hoppy but not overly so. Hint of pine. A nice bold consistency without being "thick". Lagunitas never ceases to please me and even though this is on the milder side of most of their brews its an A+.

Poured a bit hazy dark gold with 3 finger white head. Nice lacing. Nose was a bit piney w/ citrus. A little wheat but this is not a hefe. Feel is thicker and taste is very sweet with an IPA hop finish.

I run the meat department in a semi ghetto grocery store and I pushed them for a year to get this beer. It sells great now and I am way vindicated on my opinion that we could move this . The only grocery store beer I would even consider except SN Torpedo.
Sumpin is the best grocery store beer in this area. Beats sam an sierra and all the locals.

The beer looks, smells ,tastes, and feels high quality. Normally I spend too much on the best thing available but if I don't really Sumpin is just as satisfying. It's my session beer I guess. Good stuff, Lagunitas rules.

Pours honey gold color with a full head and decent lacing. Piney smell with hints of bread. Taste is slight citrus and pine. Very little hint of wheat. Very refreshing summer beer.

Don't be mislead by the desc, "American Pale Wheat Ale". This does not taste or look like a typical "rancid" wheat beer. It is dark and heavy and mysteriously smokey. 8/4/15 from a variety six pack from State Line Liquors.

Later 6/2017 on tap this is GRRRRReat! Better than in bottle. Almost addicting. Just raised rating from 4 to 4.5
