A – Vibrant orange color that is crystal clear, small 1 finger head that has some mild retention.
S – Potent hop nose, just a great blend of pine/grass and tropical fruits, very mild sweet smell that lingers. The hops in this just dominate.
T – Just similar to the nose, a potent hop punch; a combination of pine/grass hops and some refreshing tropical fruits. The malt just adds a little sweetness to keep this beer from getting overly bitter, very well thought out recipe.
M – A little on the thin side, but for how robust and hoppy this beer is it doesn’t dilute it, the carbonation is pretty impressive also. The hops make this beer really sticky in the mouth, and kind of a nice change of pace.
O – Lagunitas you suck for not making Brown Shugga’ this year, but I am happy with the replacement. Would love to see this be added to the year round releases, but doubt it will happen. Again, Lagunitas makes a solid IPA, WINNING!
