12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Born Jul 22nd.

A - A semi-cloudy orange with ruby highlights. Pours with a one finger head that moves quickly to a thin lace.

S - Grapefruit, mild onion, floral/pine notes

T - Orange citrus (almost Fresca like, remember Fresca?). A malt backbone that resonates more on the finish. A sense of alcohol heat. As with the original Sumpin, there is something delicious that I can't quite explain.

M - Slightly above average carbonation, mouthfeel is light but gets sticky at the finish. Refreshing.

O - The original Little Sumpin has always been a favorite, and this one fits right in the mix.

A golden honey pour, quite handsome. A big head and good lacing add to the attractiveness. A fresh hop scent. A girl at the neighboring table even claimed to smell hops in the air. Grapefruit, pineapple, and a fruit basket of flavor. Very nice, and well balanced though hop forward. Light carbonation and very drinkable for 8 ABV. Another well done brew by Lagunitas.
