Grabbed a bottle of this, poured into a pint. Pours a fairly standard oak furniture stain color with not much head. However, a very nice sticky lacing as the beer goes down. The smell is sort of a candied hops aroma, sticks with you a for a while.
The first taste is a blast of hops, with grapefruit and some pine. Tasty. Unsubtle. Seems to improve as the drink goes on.
This definitely makes for easy drinking, but I would prefer a little more resin and a thicker mouthfeel.
Final verdict - this is a good to very-good beer, but honestly, I don't see what all the nattering is about regarding Sucks. It's a good IPA/DIPA, but there are better ones out there. Not to mention this is like the 758th DIPA Lagunitas has made. That said, the price point on this is outstanding, it's a good value buy.
