Lagunitas Brown Shugga This winter American strong ale pours a copperish ruby, with a touch of haze~ Solid head and lacing to follow~ Nose is Hops, Booze, Pine and a touch of Citrus~ Palate is just a scotch above medium, very sticky sugary presence~ Taste is Sugar (shocker) HOPS! maybe just didn't expect such a bitter hoppy beer, I expected more of a Warmer/Brown Ale by the name and label~ Also, Citrus, Banana, Pine, and some Earthy Floral ness, a touch of Maple and Peach~ A bitter and boozy brew that is definitely for hop heads~ Im super picky about hoppy brews~ The sugar does a nice job of balancing the bitterness on a bruising 10%ABV~ This is a unique brew~ Finishes a bit too bitter and boozy for my liking, although I could blame that on the season~ Overall: 7.3

This beer appears golden in color with a white fluffy head, and clean. The froth is sticky. It has a sweet, floral, and hoppy aroma. The taste is world-class, I am impressed. Super clean taste. Mouthfeel is chewy with dense, smooth carbonation. With the taste, mouthfeel, and price point, this beer is up there with the big boys. This is a contender with HT, PtE, and Abrasive, more on par with Abrasive.
For the price, you cannot beat this American Double IPA
