Lagunitas Sumpin' Easy Ale

What the brewers say

“A healthy dose of 2-row malted barley, a bit of wheaty-esque-ish-ness and loads of Ekuanot hops to create a super smooth and velvety ale with a fruit and resiny finish like biting into a freshly picked peach. Easy!”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Delicate and interesting. Very fruity—peach, passion fruit, orange, blueberry—and a touch of pine and grass with a pleasant underlying spiciness. Grainy malt aroma.”

Flavor: “Malt is about as simple as it can get—likely using some Pilsner malt to brighten things up beyond just plain 2-row pale malt. Hops are fruity (peach) and floral with just a touch of pine. Underlying spice notes add complexity. Finishes clean with a smooth lingering bitterness.”

Overall: “Light, clean, and easy-drinking but with hops complexity that keeps it from being one dimensional. Interesting peach aroma and flavor. The underlying spicy/herbal character throughout avoids coming across as medicinal and instead adds an intriguing aroma and lingering complexity on the finish.”
