Notes/Commercial Description:
This sad holiday season we didn’t have the brewing capacity to make our favorite seasonal brew, the widely feared BrownShugga’ Ale. You see we had a couple of really good years (thank you very much) and so heading into this season while we are awaiting the January delivery of a new brewhouse we are jammin’ along brewing 80 barrels of IPA and PILS and such every 3 hours. A couple of months back we realized that since we can only brew a mere 60 barrels of Shugga’ every 5 hours, that we were seriously screwed. For every case of Shugga’ brewed, we’d short 3 cases of our favorite daily beers. It’s a drag. This year, we brewed something that we think is also cool and brews more like our daily brews. The new brewhouse will help insure this kind of failure never happens again. It’s a mess that we can not brew our BrownShugga’ this year and we suck for not doing it. There is nothing cool about screwing this up this badly and we know it. Maybe we can sue our own sorry selves. There is no joy in our hearts this holiday and the best we can hope for is a quick and merciful end. F*@& us. This totally blows. Whatever. We freaking munch moldy donkey butt and we just want it to be all over...
So this substitute beer is a ‘Cereal Medley’ of Barley, Rye, Wheat, and Oats…. Full of complexishness from the 4 grains, and weighing in at 7.85% abv, Then joyously dry-hopped for that big aroma and resinous hop flavor.

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

Pours out beautifully clear gold with a thick tight soapy head that clings to the glass with webby lacing. Smell is a huge hit of citrus and pine, with just a hint of hay. Taste is all citrus and pine. Massive orange, grapefruit pith and lemon zest. Full and silky smooth but still refreshing. Very clean and tasty. A nice change of pace from other West Coast DIPAs that tend to be much maltier.

A- beautiful light IPA color. Decent head. Liquid gold and see through.

S - Citrus, very citrusy. Oranges, delicious lemon zest comes through. Very, very fresh. Less intense than other "west coast" IPA's.

T - Very balanced. Awesome! No unpleasant aftertaste at all. A great bite up front with very little aftertaste.

O - Great go to selection for any occasion.

Review taken 3rd Saturday in Feb.(2014)

12 oz short brown bottle with one of my favorite labels so far in 2014. A bit plain, but gets its point across nicely with a lovely story on its origination. It's just a label that does it for me. Poured into a standard American pint glass.

A - somewhat hazy golden with a yellow tone to it. This really pops with all sorts of glowing liquid when held in the light. Beautiful. Nice sized white head on the pour really blended well and right away made me feel comfortable that I was about to taste pure class from this bottle. Head mellows out into a creamy splotched lacing leaving fine stick caked the the sides of my pint glass.

S - up front there are some really amazing whiffs going on. Loads of fruitiness with tangerine, juicy orange, grapefruit, and fresh pineapple. Slight hint of west coast pine sap and a dank hop funk adds even more brilliance in this nose. A swift bready give it just the right balance of aromas and pushes itself in the territory that seperates the great from the very good. This is what an ipa is supposed to smell like.

T - lots of citrus and tropical fruits. Follows right in line with its nose. Big gushing fruitiness of tangerine, orange, pineapple, and grapefruit up front. The pine notes are straight up sap like but quickly fold before they punish you. It's a nice touch and allows for that very fresh, resinous, dank hop character you get toward the middle. Everything is balanced wonderfully with a Lagunitas style yeast and bready maltiness that never really takes control but adds top shelf class to this area of the flavor. Finish is carries a crisp semi bitterness that leaves a beautiful taste in the back end.

M - bigger medium body. Not huge, but flavorful and coats well. Texture and thickness are exceptional. Crazy drinkable and easy going considering the flavors it gushes out. It just feels right. Not sure anything is perfect, but this is sure close.

O - Hmm.. What can one say about Sucks? How about its great. I mean, truly grand. Something I could seriously drink every single day of the year. I get in moods where
I crave something then something different the next day. This is something I will crave daily. Thinking, waiting, and searching the next time its released. No doubt about it. This has loads of quality and class. The first taste lets you know this is something different, one of a kind, something you'll pick up any time you see it.

4.55/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Very clear amber colored pour, lots of bubbles, durable head. The looks remind me of Sierra Nevada Celebration, and that's a very good start. The smell was highly potent out of the glass at an arm's length. Very citric hops with a touch of pear, and the intensity is great. I could just smell this beer for a while. The taste another hop assault, as the grapefruit, tangerine, and bitter orange flavors just hit all at once. The malt is not much of a presence here except providing some sticky sweetness. Medium dense and creamy feeling in the mouth. This was a very well crafted DIPA. There is of course no substitute for Brown Shugga, but I hope they keep this one around too. Otherwise they would really suck :)

I've been enjoying this beauty almost all of the crappy dark winter now and with what seemed to be and endless supply in my area now drying up I decided it's time time stock up and review. Poured from a bottle into a Lagunitas widemouth jar mug. Beautiful honey golden color with about a half finger head. The aromas will about knock you out, very floral with pine and plenty of hops as well as some honey. Taste is amazing nice sweet honey upfront followed but a bit of pine with hops galore. Great bitterness that is not overpower but lingers nicely. Good body without feeling filling or heavy. This is really a nice beer that won't let you down.

4.26/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottled December 30th 2013. Getting a bit long in the tooth by now. But I had a whole sixpack in January in Florida and that was fresh then. So I'm partly reviewing from that experience.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Smith English tulip pint.

a: Clear dark gold with a three inch white head which dissipated slowly to heavy rocky surface foam and extensive clingy lacing.

s; Fairly strong citrus and pine at first, this bottle changed to more vinegar later on.

t; Tasty and quite strong citrus and pine forward over a light malt base. Bitterness lingers on the tongue but not as strong or long as some. The bottle drunk for this review unfortunately was dominated by a vinegary aroma far more than the seven I had previously enjoyed.

m; Light to moderate.

o: Generally, an outstanding DIPA. Persistent tasty citrus and pine with good carbonation. However, this eighth bottle was not nearly as superlative as the others. If it were my first Sucks, I'd have given it much lower marks. Odd, or perhaps not, I had a similar experience with my recent sixpack of Brown Shugga. Seemed like every other bottle was a lot less enjoyable than the rest.

I've got most of three sixpacks of this left. Hope my recent rocky Brown Shugga experience is not duplicated with them. I loved the Sucks I had in Florida. But here at home, now, so far...

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

poured from a bottle into a pint glass. the aromas jump at your instantly, this one is something special. this is the second time i have had sucks, but the first time i am actually sitting down and inspecting it for a review. just a heads up, this is beer is dangerously good

A- pours a straight up shimmering gold, its like the finest of apple juices in all the land. vibrant beautiful and full of life. nice little half finger head of tight tight tight little bubbles. lacing is spotty and hangs on to the glass still all very tight little bubbles

S- Huge aromas here, im getting grapefruit and blood orange rind as well as straight up juices from both. there is a light booziness in the end of the nose as well as some grainy malty hints and some slight ryes. very sweet and light smelling

T- Monster! Honey and granny smith apples along with the strong grapefruit juic and rind. some orange/blood orange as well as a little bit of lemon and lime. each sip is extremely complex and dynamic, inviting more and more. we finish up with a strong citra hops pinch on the back of the tongue. Each taste has a slightly different profile but all under the same groupings. very drinkable

M- mouthfeel is medium- with a perfect amount of carbonation. the tartness is just right. very mouth watering and very enjoyable.

O- Overall this beer swings and swings hard. Its a Perfect example of taking a DIPA in injecting it full of life and zest. Sucks does everything but that. this is a top notch beer and the drinkablity combined with the 7.85% ABV is fantastic little treat.

The citra grapefruit flavor is amazingly overpowering, this beer taste dangerously good. You get what you pay for with the taste and the kick. I've been a huge Lagunitas fan for awhile, even being from Maine. We've gotten almost every beer they make. The Dogtown IPA and Daytime are perfect summer drinkable beers. The Sucks is perfect for fall/winter. It's been my go-to beer for a couple months now. It is exploding with flavor!

A- poured a lighter gold, with a nice thick creamy white head. Head has great retention and leaves big lacing

S- a rich malt aroma (fresh sourdough bread) mixes it up against the hops aromas (citrus, floral)

T- a great big flavor with both the robust malts and the big, but not overpowering hops matching up splendidly

M- a nice thick feeling on the palate, with just a minor (but distinct) crisp finish from the hops

O- this is a great beer. Words don't do it justice.

had this on tap a few times over the past couple years - first time in bottle - on tap seems to be, unsurprisingly, the way to go....

A: poured into a balloon glass... tall almost 2" white head.... clear yellow-gold liquid, maybe a faint haze... this is the proper color for an IPA.... smattered strands of lace, holds a decent cap

S: pineapple, grass (lawn), fruit sugars, subtle pine, slight burnt/caramelized bread crust... background punch of mellow, medicinal booze.... as good as it gets with (familiar) aromas like this

T: mildly spicy (clove?) sugar cookie, washed out with a piña colada-like alcohol.... drying warmth of alcohol in the finish with enough sticky residual resins and sugars to compliment.... granola with dried apricot(?) and grassy aftertaste.... really, it just smacks palate all over with the taste of fresh hop flower oils.... a touch of perfumy vinyl does creep in after long.

M: soft, sudsy kiss of foam... open, airy mellow booze up front, keeping on the outsides, followed by the smooth, slightly slick core of its body.... drop-off finish, flat dry.... incredibly moreish, as if you feel like you didn't take a big enough sip each time

O: easily the best beer I've had by Lagunitas... sure does make up for whatever issue they had with Brown Shugga.... excellent balance between hops, malt, and booze.... well done!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A - Pours a clear golden ale color. Strong cream colored head that dies down in a minute, some lacing.

S - A really forward citrus smell. Smells like pineapple lifesavers. The fruity aroma really overwhelms, but I think there is some hops and other aromas hidden in there somewhere..

T - The pineapple flavor really shines through, but it is balanced with some sweet maltiness. Tangerine also shines through and perhaps other fruity flavors. I can detect the bitter hops on the finish. This beer is really really dry.

M - Perfect viscosity for an IPA. This beer has a dry mouthfeel and an almost astringent finish.

O - This is a unique beer with character that I would try again. I think it would be very satisfying on a hot summers day, but one would be enough. That said, I do not want to overhype it. I would like it more if it hit a few more notes in terms of flavors and was a little less dry on the palate.

Just go introduced to this beer and i absolutely feel in love! I just moved to San Diego and the breweries/ craft beers in this city is off the hook!

This beer is my go to beer when I really just want to mellow out and just sip on some good tasting beer :] its not to thick like their brown shugga or not as light as their lil sumpin' ale. to me this beer has a nice hoppy/bittersweet taste to it and i just love it!

since this beer is seasonal you may have to call around to see if the store has them in stock. went to two different bevmos and they were out found a 6-pack at a local keg n beer.

Wow. Just found this locally during my quest to try everything in the BA 250. I like Sucks but this Brown Shugga version is MUCH better in my opinion. Sometimes it is the subtle differences.

Lots of taste and flavor to go with the hops makes for a very smooth and flavorful IPA that isn't taken over by hops.

Poured from a 12oz bottle, bottling code 007 4 (Jan. 7, 2014)

Bright gold body, huge creamy head with lots of air bubbles, excellent retention. Aroma of papaya, orange flesh, sweet grapefruit rinds. Taste is juicy peaches and oranges, sweet grapefruit (no bitterness). Very smooth and full but not really a DIPA in my book. Still tasty nonetheless.

Lagunitas Sucks

Not just a clever name

Poured into tulip glass

A: Beautiful. Orange with a yellow glow. Some beers just have a certain glow about them . . . This is one of them !

S: Mmm . . . I won't even bother.

T: As good as it gets. Tropical fruits, great hop bitternes and without a doubt Sucks is the most "juiciest" ipa I've ever had ! Well done Lagunitas.

M: Perfect for an ipa . . . Sticky !

O: I've had alot of ipa's . . . Probably hundreds by now. And Lagunitas Sucks is the cream of the crop people !

Lagunitas Sucks Brown Shugga Substitute Ale
12 oz brown bottle
Jet ink #017 4 6671 1318
Served in a 20 oz glass

Pours a copper color mix of light orange with a yellow tint. A bleach white head forms on top and leaves awesome trails of sticky lace. Mini carbonation bubbles rise to the top of glass.

What an outstanding nose with whiffs of citrus fruits and freshly cut flowers. Could someone please make an air freshener with this smell? We know this beer is gonna have a major hop presence from the intensity in the air.

The backbone of this beer has a crisp backbone of grains and rye. The hop flavors in this beer are extraordinary with grapefruit, orange, apricot and pineapple all coming through. The 7.85% ABV is very well hidden.

We're talking major hops, expect some hop bomb burps as you drink this one down!

Sampling a cellar temp bottle poured into a snifter.
The beer pours a clear copper color with creamy bleached white head of jsut about .5 cm that fades to a sticky edge layer and wispy surface foam.
Aroma is citrus rind and pine sap with just a little bit of pineapple and general fruitiness. Very hoppy nose, but not just astringent bitterness.
First sip reveals an average body with fine rolling carbonation that is barely detectable on each sip.
The beer is very easy to drink, with no detected alcohol nor heavy presence to slow down consumption.
Flavor is some sweet caramel malt that gives way to citrus rind and pineapple hops with just a bit of astringency on the finish. The beer also finishes very dry and asks me to drink more. I dont get any booze on any stages of the beer and my glass is empty much sooner than i thought it would be for a beer just under 8%.

A tasty treat for the end of winter, definitely more a hopheader than a malty beer.

Pours a golden yellow color with a good sized head, fades at a slow rate but only leaves some small bits of patchy lacing.

Smell has a beautiful floral piney hop aroma, touch of citrus and sweet malt to add to the layers.

Taste starts out and finishes with the citrus pine hop presence, pretty much the hops are evident through the entire thing, some sweet malt does balance things near the end, slightly sticky and sweet in the finish yet also with a semi-dry ending, carbonation is practically perfect.

I hope this brew doesnt go '"undercover"!! I really enjoyed it this winter, as did my family and friends i introduced it to! Im gonna keep writing because beer advocate insists that i have 250 words. Anyways I really hope you guys keep this beer around as a seasonal pickup cuz, picking up a 32 oz beer from the store and telling your wife "babe I only had one!!" , is great. but i have to say its a very hoppy, smooth, and comforting beer for the winter time to share with family and friends.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours up golden, with a substantial head and lacing.

S - Fruit is king, with strong tropical elements. Not much citrus, but a bit of pine around the edges.

T - Following the smell, the main hit is mango, pineapple, peach. Traces of citrus are limited, and mostly of pith rather than the fruit itself. The pine aspect, present in the smell, is largely absent in the taste, but the bitter line comes up as this closes. There are definite malt notes, with sweetness that runs throughout to complement the fruit of the hops.

M - Crisp, clean, with a bit of drying, but so easy to drink. I'd say this would be great for summer, but this beer would mess you up if you session it.

O - This is a well-balanced beer that manages all aspects and delivers an exciting, delicious, fun brew with lots of character while staying quite approachable. I love this beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured on-tap into tulip.
A: Pours a mostly clear, but slightly hazed lemon hue with high carbonation producing a 2-3 inch bubbly white head. Good retention. Decent lacing.
S: Aromatic citrus notes abound. Grapefruit seems most apparent, followed by orange and lemon. Hint of pine. Hoppy bitterness on the nose too. Not complex, but quite nice.
T: Follows aroma very well. Loads of sweet and only mildly bitter citrus hop notes (grapefruit, orange, lemon). Again, not complex, but what it offers it does well.
M: Light-medium body. Sweet and only mildly bitter (expected more considering the huge hop presence in the aroma and taste). In my book, this only helps make an IPA more drinkable when it doesn't go overboard on the bitterness (or at least balances it well).
D: The definition of drinkability. The ABV is right in the sweet spot for me...just enough to give the brew a kick, but not too much to knock you down. Wow...what a pleasant surprise. I didn't peak at any reviews before trying this beer...and I would agree that it is an excellent example of style. Seek it out!
