Drizly Expert Notes

Lagunitas' A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' ale is scrumptious beer that knows no category. Think of it as something between an American wheat beer and an American IPA. Thought up by the rather whimsical minds out there in Northern California, it combines the best of both worlds. It has the slickness and richness of a wheat beer and the overtly citrusy and piney flavors of the classic American IPA. A match made in heaven? That just depends if you consider the Lagunitas brewery to be heaven or not.

Pour this beer out into a classic pilsner glass or your favorite logo'd shaker pint and you'll see a clean, honey blonde color, lots of excited bubbles and a solid two finger head of white foam. Wheat certainly creates a wonderful head. The aromas that waft from the glass smell of light honey, lemon zest, orange peels, fresh grass, and trodden earth. While made with wheat, this has the aroma of a fresh IPA. The flavor is similarly zealous. Not overly loud, the strong, malty body balances well with the citrus flavors from the hops. Orange pith, tangerine juice, and tree resin dominate, but aren't as in your face as you might find with the more aggressive IPAs. The addition of the wheat malts create a full body and a smooth quality to each quaff, inviting you back for just a bit more.

Lagunitas really hit it out of the park with A Little Sumpin' Sumpin'. The combination of styles creates a hybrid that deserves to be something made more often. At least it can be enjoyed as often as you'd like as this is one of their year round offerings. Pair it with a plate full of sweet Indian-style curry such as chicken tikka masala, or try it with a side of fettuccine Alfredo. Not in the mood for a full meal with your beer, just enjoy it by itself or with a bunch of friends for a living room screening of your favorite action flick
