A Little Sumpin' Extra Ale

Lagunitas Brewing (Petaluma, CA)
"The big sister of the Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale. Lots of wheat for a curious malt complexity and leaving it light in color, but huge in flavor and satisfaction.
It's 50% malted barley and 50% wheatly-esque-ish-ness. It's bigger, badder, and bolder."

First sip ice cold out of the cooler was a bit off-putting, bitter and strong alcohol taste. As it sat and warmed a bit it improved ... dramatically!
Interestingly complex with a sweet malt presence and lots of herbal and citrus hops. Very tasty, but at 8.7 ABV one is probably enough.

8.7% ABV, 72 IBU
