Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Wild

Type: ale
Origin: Petaluma, California
Price: $4.49 per 22 oz

Andy essentially reviewed this beer when he reviewed the brewery, but I figure since he said Petaluma has a yeast infection, the beer deserves its own post. On the bottle, "Doggone Good" says that this is fermented with the Westmalle Yeast Strain (seriously look at the bottle, looks like a Web 2.0 disaster). Regardless, this is a damn good beer. While I have never tasted Westmalle this hopped up before, I would have to say those Monks better start harvesting some more hops. Even those this is quite hoppy, you can pick out the subtle qualities of the beer, which has a nice sweet cherry component to it. It has a very thick feeling to it (like cough syrup), making me instantly feel like I got my moneys worth.
