Lagunitas: A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale
 
What a great light-medium bodied, citrus/grapefruit hop dominant, malty golden colored ale.

A: Pale clear gold with a small white head. Good head retention. Excellent lacing.

S: Smells like an American IPA, soft citrus, and grapefruit aromatics. Some malt on the back end, but overall dominated by the hops.

T: Smooth grapefruit hoppy balance, soft pine flavors linger, wheat softens everything out but is secondary to the bitter hops and lets them shine.

M: Medium bodied, extremely drinkable. Lingering dryness in the finish.
 
D: Leaves a very nice smooth hoppy finish. The 7.3% ABV is hidden extremely well. Surprisingly this beer is a pale wheat, but I'll drink it all day. A great beer.

Such a nice pint.  Oh how I wish they would bring this brand to England and not just the occasional bottle to London.

It's great. Maybe we'll start seeing it on the shelves again.

This just started showing up on the shelves here a couple months ago.  I've had a few sixers of it so far.  Very tasty.

supermarket liquors yesterday and looked at this brew and
walked right on past it.... :-\
