Great beer. Drank this one from the bottle and i was not disappointed it really does live up to the hype. VERY tropical. A lot of pineapple going on with some mellowed out tropical skittles. Very sweet but what would you expect with a name like brown shugga. It has pretty good bitterness going on in the back too.

L (4.25) – Very nice amber color. This is honestly my favorite color. Nice little head too.

S (4.5) – Smells great. You really get that piney, bitter smell that you want.

T (4) – Tastes really good. Not quite what I was expecting by the style or name. I do not get much sweet or alcohol, but it is good.

F (4) – Has nice mouthfeel. Goes down well.

O (4.25) – I’m kinda new to Lagunitas stuff, and had heard a lot about this one. I thought it was good, but not top shelf, run all over town to buy, type of beer. Nice beer, and I’d add to my rotation.
