This is one of my favorite IPAs. If you like grapefruit & citrus tastes in your beer, you'll probably like this one. It's my go-to beer during football season.

12 oz. bottle ice cold at restaurant poured into a nonic pint glass.

A= Amber golden with a little bit of haze, nice thick foamy pure-white head that slowly settles, lacing clings all over the glass as I drink.

S= Smell has some grassy and toasty notes with citrus and caramel.

T= Nice amount of citrus and pine hop flavor with malt sweetness and earthy wheat background.

M= Lighter side of medium body with moderate carbonation.

O= Nice and crisp, has enough bitterness and hop backing to balance out sweetness from the malts. Great interpretation of a wheat beer.

look is rich deep and attractive golden amber, although a much lighter amber, still rich in color, smell is clean deep again and minerally, taste is rich, full complex and long, wheat is prominent with the hoppy feel throughout, i prefer this hop profile to most IPA's as it is consistent and subtle compared to most, a great beer for those trying to develop a hop feel. watch out potent and these sneak up, very smooth for a 7.5. feel is great, easy for the flavor and again complex. a solid beer for the fridge and will purchase frequently. overall a solid solid beer, solid enough to be very good!

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. The aroma is a sweet, thick caramel candy with background notes of wheat, and citrus (leaning more sugary marmalade). It pours clear and oily with a gold hue and a white, dense soap head that leaves a light, messy lace and has a moderate messy retention. The taste is a medium high sweet with a medium bitter supporting note. The texture is smooth and oily with a soft foam carbonation and a medium body. The flavor profile is primarily caramel with a bitter citrus and wheat touch. It finishes with a clove and bittersweet citrus zest that leaves a mostly clean and lightly astringent aftertaste with mellow remnants of clove and a mild citrus with a slight cloying caramel sugar and a late bread note.

Poured from the bottle into a craft pub glass. Nice thick white head with great lacing. Head dissipated slowly. Smells of floral aromas, hoppy, citrusy lemon notes. Tastes of lemon rind upfront that shifts nicely to bitter hops at the end. Overall very smooth and drinkable. A good summer beer.

For the longest time I could only find IPA and PILS from Laguniats brewing. I listen to A Mediorcre Time With Tom & Dan podcast from Orlando FL and they always sing the praises of Daytime, Little Sumpin, and Sucks. I finally found "little sumpin" at a Whole Foods in Miami and I think it's my new favorite.
