On Lagunitas A Little Sumpin' Extra! Ale.

Safeway's selection of inebriates is underwhelming, to say the least.  About the only local color present were Lagunitas IPA and another selection, the Little Sumpin' Extra! Ale.  Because I've yet to drink a Lagunitas that is less than exceptional, and I had already drunk about three cases of their IPA this year,  the choice made itself.

Short verdict: Why are you still reading this?  You should have your keys in hand, headed to the local Inebriation Bazaar.

Long version:

An approximation of Little Sumpin' Extra! would be:

2 parts Lagunitas Maximus IPA.

1 part Darjeeling tea, brewed triple strong, so your teeth feel like they've grown a layer of shag carpet.

1 part lemon juice.

The phrase "wall of flavor" describes this sort of beer perfectly.  In fact, anything with less body and kick (which means just about everything but Arrogant Bastard) tastes like making love in a canoe.
