Yes, NightTime is BACK! Got 2 six-packs from the brewery a few hours ago. That's right, sixers are available this year.

This is one of my favorite beers of all time. I consider it better than other "best of" beers local to that area such as Pliny the Elder. Don't get me wrong, Pliny is a wonderful, very fresh DIPA (nothing more, nothing less, don't buy into the hype) but NightTime is similar (except more tropical instead of piny) while offering a nice roasty flavor that puts it over the line for me.

Bottom line is that if you like your beer dank and piny, Pliny is going to be preferable, and if you like tropical hops then NightTime is going to take it.

This beer is just so ridiculously good, the hops blast you in the face immediately and it's just tropical as hell. Make no mistake, this is a DIPA (I think it may even be Sucks with a roasted element) so DRINK IT FRESH. Just like every DIPA ever it is significantly worse within just a few weeks of bottling.

Drink it soon and enjoy what I consider to be one of the best DIPAs out there, easily up there with Sucks, Pliny and Enjoy By.

A smooth, big, malty Black IPA. Brings together a solid hoppy feel with the roasted chocolate notes. Really well made. A typically robust yet easy drinking beer from Lagunitas.

It's good but the bitter after taste got to me after awhile. A little too hoppy for a dark beer
