A - Pours golden with a half finger of foamy white head. Nice solid soapy lacing.
S - Amazing, I can smell this from the bottle. Hops, sweet citrus, pineapple, grapefruit and lime.
T - Sweet citrus, grapefruit and pineapple, lighter underlying fruits like apple and lime. Finishes slightly bitter. Light medium body and mouthfeel. Excellent.
O - An amazing, unique tasting ale.
V - Medium.

For when you're looking for something heavy that is affordable, well made and really drinkable, drink 'Sumpin Ale. It's just spot on for providing a nice hop aroma without overwhelming a really clean malt flavor. The body is just fabulous, as is the ABV. I don't find it boozy either. It's really well balanced.

Now that I am in the southwestern US I've been looking for an alternative to Peak Organic Summer Ale, which I love. This is a very good beer but not quite what I was looking for, i will grab another six and try it again. I will still keep searching for something similar to the Peak Organic though.
