Pale golden body, a smooth pour creates a big fluffy two finger head. Average retention and spotty lacing left all over the glass.

Loads of floral grapefruit and citrus hops with a slight piney undertone. Pale wheat malt lends just a bit of lemon and bread before it is overwhelmed. Hoppy and snappy aroma, time to dive right in.

Wafer thin malt, just a bit of thin grains that lie down for a hop attack that follows the nose. Big grapefruit and equal amounts of pine flavor. Finish is dry, bright and crisp with snappy lemon and hay.

Cleans exceptionally well, very bright refreshing. Average body and easy to drink, moderate carbonation but really comes alive on the palate. Partly warming alcohol on the finish yet sessionable.

Wheat beer done IPA assertive. Crisp, clean and hoppy.

Lagunitas - A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale - 12fl oz

Really been digging Lagunitas brews.

Look - Awesome label, love the pinup throwback. Pours golden with a slight copper hue. Thick, soapy head. Minimal but some carbonation. Unfiltered.

Smell - Smells of hoppy wonderment, low malt scent rests below.

Taste - Smooth hops, not as snappy tasting as the smell would lead you to believe, but it is still quite pleasant. The malt actually stands out above the hops here.

Mouthfeel - This is one of those beers you don't mind letting rest on your taste-buds, it is enjoyable to absorb the malt and let the hops linger.

Overall - Another interesting Lagunitas brew. Deceptively smooth but packs enough of a punch to stand alone quite well.

Poured typical of Lagunitas. Even, smooth, nice body.

Smell is fantastic. Citrus, wheat and some nice hops. Not too excited about this one as I don't care for wheat beers. Taste is smooth and citrusy with a biting wheat finish. Don't care for the end but I recognize that this is done well.

I think you have to really like this style to go back to it. Too many other good offerings from this brewery and at least for me, too many better styles. That being said, this is the worst brew I've had from Lagunitas and given the rating, it should speak volumes about their beers.
