Served in a shaker pint.

Golden copper body, the white head builds to almost two finger's. Tons of lace remains as the cap slowly deflates.

C-hops spectacularly stimulate the nose. Tons of tropical citrus to be found in here: pineapple, star fruit, grapefruit. So good! You have to really bury your nose in the drink, though.

A let down on the palate, make no mistake! It is very bitter, which is not the problem. The flavors, though, comprise aspirin, some diacetyl, a boozy bite, and finally a bit of peppery star fruit. Not NEARLY juicy enough for how the nose played.

Sumpin' has a light to medium body and is pretty crisp, also a little dry from the hop bite.

If I had to venture a guess, I would say this bottle is a little past it's prime. And I'm sure this beer is much juicier when more fresh. As is, this beer has an under whelming set of flavors.
