First every Brown Shugga. Didn't get exposed to Lagunitas until last year and loved Lagunitas Sucks. Now it's time to find out why they sucked.
A: Golden brown pour with an active culture of rising bubbles. The head builds up a substantial amount, lasts a decently long time, and is white in color. The head completely coats the insides of my Lagunitas mason jar, much like an IPA. 4.5
S: The aroma is very sweet, with a grassy, earthy hoppiness providing some balance. Booze, caramel malt, and hops all come together in a distinctly Lagunitas way. I can tell by the aroma that this is going to be as good as everything I've had some this brewery. 4
T: The sweetness and hoppiness collide in just a wonderful way on the taste. Things start of with caramel and citrus, giving way quickly to bitter hops and some booze. The finish is very dry and hoppy, making the mouth water a ridiculous amount. You crave the sweetness at the beginning so much that you forget this monster is nearly 10% ABV...until you stand up! 4.5
MF: Medium body with a great amount of carbonation. The booze is noticeable, but not in a bad way. It's very drinkable for the style. 4.5
O: Lagunitas, you do suck for not making this last year! It's amazing! Although, I'm glad Lagunitas Sucks was the result. I'm torn there, but not on whether or not I like this beer. True winner, yet again. 4.5
