Saw this at a store the other day and am kind of interested in it. I ended up buying something else, but from what I read on reviews, I think it might not be too bad of an IPA.

I like that they changed up the label from their usual, but SA beers are a crapshoot for me. I am usually not terribly fond of them, but they have a few gems.

My beer store had singles for <$2, so I couldn't resist, but I haven't tried it yet and now I have a cold, so it might be a couple days before I try it.

They're trying to outcompete Lagunitas Sucks with it. There was some twitterflack between the respective owners over it with both sides getting a little sandy about it.

Sam Adams has also been mostly miss for me on the beer likes dartboard. As much as I like Utopias, it's hardly a go-to beer. Lagunitas produces at least four or five beers that I consider very good (Brown Shugga, Sucks, Hairy Eyeball, Hop Stoopid).

I agree. Little Sumpin' Sumpin' is a nice beer.

I thought it was pretty good. I'll agree they don't really make a bunch of good stuff. I'd still have some Boston lager over a lot of other things out there.

I had one earlier today, and it really was pretty decent. I'm not into IPAs as much as other styles, but I found it pleasant. That being said, I had it on tap, and I almost always like beer from a keg better than bottled beer, and I always like the Sam Adams offerings more when they are out of a keg.

I'd say it was better than a lot of the other things on draft at the place I had it. However Long Trail just came out with their Limbo IPA which is even more fantastic, IMO.
