Yeah, there hasn't been one beer they make that wouldn't be worth purchasing again. The Hop Stoopid and Lil Sumpin were fantastic.

Hate to break a theory, but Little Sumpin' Sumpin' isn't mashed at the usual 160 like other Lagunitas beers. It's much lower like 152 or 3. In the CYBI Little Sumpin' Sumpin' episode, the brew master talks about mash thickness being very important to him and to the consistency of their beer. While that doesn't speak to what that Lagunitas flavor is, it might suggest why it is always there. They also use a lot of hop extracts fwiw.

Little Sumpin' is hands down in my top five favorite beers.
Primary: Honey Kolsch Take 2

Good call, im myself trying to detect some areas where i can make better beer and i think my mash consistancy is part of it as well, as i vary in quart per pound, im detecting a pattern myself i think. I just brewed a double batch so this may show me the difference as i had one more dilluted than the other, but i got more yeast in one than the other too,grrrrr And to think i could make the same batch at the same time.
