Didn't realize it was my 300th review until I started. Oh well, not everything has to be a true milestone. Still, at least Sucks is a semi-rare beer that is worth noting.
12 oz bottle, found it at Julio's, home of many great beers. Served in my Surly Darkness snifter, because it rocks!
A: Head? Yes, please, make it a double! Huge, thick, frothy white head on a golden body with a hint of reddish to it.
S: Nose is ...Simcoe? Sharp, piney, spicy, just really good smelling and nicely complex.
F: Tasty and quaffable. True West Coaster here. Light malt body is only a framework for big, gratuitous hopitude. Waves of citrus and pine. This is really the closest thing to Pliny that I can think of. Heady Topper may have stolen my heart, but I still carry a torch for Pliny, and this could be the kid sister.
M: Stripping and cleansing, done right.
O: Really, really good. I love Hop Stoopid and many of their other brews, but this one is somehow better. Glad to hear that this will be a new product.
