Lagunitas Brewing Company (Petaluma, California) has announced that it will soon introduce Sumpin’ Easy Ale as the newest addition to its line of Unlimited Releases.
Arriving as a smaller sibling to Lagunita’s A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale, Sumpin’ Easy Ale is meant to “dip beneath the flotsam of categories.” It doesn’t really matter whether you call it an American Pale Ale or a Pale Wheat Ale or whatever. This offering just wants to be a “hop-forward beer expressed in a moderate voice.” With a soul made up of “a healthy dose of 2-row malted barley, a bit of wheaty-esque-ish-ness and loads of Ekuanot hops”, Sumpin’ Easy reaches its goals by rocking the quiet confidence of “a super smooth and velvety ale [that has] a fruit and resin-y- finish like biting into a freshly picked peach.” All in all, you can expect the 5.7% ABV Sumpin’ Easy to be “pale, cold, slightly alcoholic, and bitter.”
Lagunitas Brewing Company claims that Sumpin’ Easy Ale will officially release “soon-ish”, but check-ins on Untappd and other beer reviewing sites seem to indicate that this brew has at least started a soft rollout. Once it does fully release, you can expect to find this Year-Round available in 12-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, California, Illinois, Washington and throughout the rest of Lagunitas Brewing’s distribution network. Prost!
