Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Wild is a variation on their Little Sumpin' Sumpin' IPA, but with Belgian yeasts and other malts. I think it's great. I could drink it every day. It pours a very clear yellow gold, with a sudsy head that leaves lots of lace. The aroma is fruit and bread. Bananas, citrus, and yeasty, crusty smelling goodness. The flavor is complex and delicious. Grapefruit, a little rye tone, and notes that remind me of buttered popcorn and sourdough bread. I can't pick up on the nearly 9% ABV in the flavor at all. This thing is delicious and sneaky. One more home run from Lagunitas. I wish other breweries had the balls to relase as many variants on their favorites as Lagunitas does.
