Poured into becker. Golden-orange, the color of honey, with a moderately thick white head made of dense foam with visible carbonation rising. Smells similar to Sucks, but with less of the spicy/pungent hops; this smells like mango and pineapple, with the herbal pungent hop scent only ghosting in at the end. Taste is smooth at first, but quite bitter in the mouth, but the bitterness is washed away by the sweet finish upon swallowing. Then, the bitter aftertaste lingers, begging you to take another sip. This is a complex and incredibly well-balanced beer. The interplay between the flavors is amazing. The mouthfeel is medium, but slick.

A: Pours out a very clear burnt amber color with two fingers of white head. Lacing draping all the way down the glass
S: This one is all up in your face with big pine and tropical fruit smells of pineapple and mango.
T: Very similar to the smell with some grapefruit thrown in there.
M: Medium body and medium carbonation. Body is oily.
O: I was really impressed by this one. Yet, it seemed to taste quite a bit like their own Lagunitas Sucks. Having both in my fridge at the same time, I had to make sure I had grabbed the right bottle. Also, this is supposed to be an American strong ale and it felt a lot more like an IIPA.
