a nice clean amber pour with 2 fingers of off-white head, great lacing on the glass.
smells of pine, caramel, grapefruit, herbal/floral hops, pepper.
pine, grass, lemongrass, grapefruit, pepper, and banana all come through in the palate.. HELL OF A COMPLEXITY FOR AN IPA!!
medium body, nice amount of carbonation, and a creamy mouthfeel.

ok, so little sumpin was a great beer.. looks like all they really did was change the yeast, which honestly made it a completely different beast. well done lagunitas!

22oz brown bomber with no freshness date.

LOOK: Peachy hue, excellent head and lacing

SMELL: Papaya, peppery, pineapple skin, blood oranges, bready, yeast, phenolic, taffy, gummy, spicy

TASTE: Medium bodied, semi-creamy, very smooth, soft hoppy resin, moving bitterness, biscuity, herbal, slightly medicinal, nutty, vegtal, a bit alcoholic

Love the whole Belgo-American movement, love Lagunitas as well. Very well balanced, Westmalle yeast battles dank hop in a higher alcohol arena ... everything a growing palate needs. Giving this brew a hearty HELL YEAH!

a decent brew, special yeast. pours a radiant bronze color, with an erupting off white head that stopped just short of needing to be frantically slurped. it smells like belgian yeast, west coast hops, and some fuller bodied malts. the flavor is pungent bitter hops, and rubbing alcohol in the finish. chemically almost at the end. the malt provides a huge amount of body, but only a touch of sweetness. lots of nonfermentable sweetness to this one. the yeast is of course very interesting. ive never had the beer that made this yeast famous, but i can imagine it now. spicy and complex, dry and ancient. the feel is decent, good body on the fuller side, and a little less carbonated than it should be, despite the head. maybe it just relaxes too quickly, im not sure. finish stays bitter for awhile. overall a clever brew, something ive come to expect from lagunitas, but this isnt as good as i expected it to be with the yeast. the west coastness of this beer overwhelms it.
