My favorite non-limited non-seasonal release beers to drink from a bottle. Until I read on BA that this beer was an "American Pale Wheat Ale", I had assumed it was an IPA - piney hops with a lovely malty sweetness.

In NYC, I have found the taste quality of this beer to have a pretty high variation. When my brother was visiting NYC (from Petaluma, CA) we got one of the not-so-great six packs from a super market prompting the dreaded criticism of "It doesn't taste as good out here." Stores that have a high turnover (like a Whole Foods beer store or specialty beer stores) are your best bet for a relatively fresh batch. With this beer, freshness means everything. With the opening of the Chicago brewing site, hopefully those of us on the east coast can expect to see a steadier stream of fresh Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale.

Favorite beer of the summer. Refreshingly bitter with fruity american hops and a tight clear head as well as fantastic clarity. A little hearty as well which is a pro for me.
