Brewers Description of this Summer Party Beer:
“Sneaky Smooth with a Touch of What We Call Wheatly-esque-ish-ness. Crispy Wheat and Pale Malt flavors with a Big Round & Juicy Hop Finish. Everyone Needs A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Sometimes. You Can Get It All Year Now… in a Six-Pack!
This special ale is something fairly new under the sun. It’s got a lot of wheat, it’s rich with hops, it finishes dry. We’ve watched with some amusement as the internet beer ratings sites argue over how to ‘classify’ it. Were in the camp with Japhy Ryder when he declares to Ray Smith that “Comparisons are odious!” You ever notice how everything has to be today’s version of yesterday’s whatever. Well, whatever. Sometimes we wonder what the world would be like if everything was perceived for what it is, and not what it reminds you of. The sun would rise everyday as if for the first time, you’d wake as if newly born, you’d see your lover next to you anew, the air would smell like flowers, work would be like the first day back in school, a beer would make your eyes roll back in your head in ecstasy … well, maybe not .. but you get the idea.”
Little Sumpin’ Summer Party Beer
Drinking A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale is an experience. It starts with a fragrant pour radiating a very hoppy aroma with hints of grapefruit or lime. The resilient head rests atop luminous gold with only a few rising bubbles. Little Sumpin’ offers a somewhat sweet beginning before quickly revealing a powerful hoppy tartness. In fact the bottle even states “Net Contents : 12 Fluid Oz’s …Of Hops, Malt, Hops, Hops, Yeast, Hops, Water, and Hops”. The beer is like a really good sound system that allows you to turn the volume up really loud without distorting the sound. In this beer the hops are really loud, but they don’t get out of control.
Little Sumpin’ is a very drinkable summer beer, even for those who don’t typically drink hop-strong ales. Grab A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ for your next summer escape.
