AMERICAN PALE WHEAT ALE
This brewery out of Petaluma, California, is known for using bucket loads of hops. First released as a summer seasonal in 2008, Little Sumpin' became a year-round offering in 2010 after its fans were hoarding it and demanding more. A cross between a wheat beer and an American IPA, it's brewed with three different types of wheat and packed full of hops. Its appearance is of a golden, orangeish, hazy hue, and its aroma and flavors include apricots, peaches, pine, clove, rose petals and spice — all compliments of the citrusy Centennial, Cascade and Citra hops. If you like this one, try its big sister, the Little Sumpin' Wild Ale! It's a higher ABV version fermented with Belgian yeast, which gives it a distinctive spicy Belgian character.
Price: $1.70 (12 oz.)
