Had my first offering from Lagunitas that I actually enjoyed.

Discussion in 'Beer Talk' started by Revenant, Dec 22, 2012.

  1. I love all Lagunitas beers. Almost no brewery can do hops the way they do. My favorite by far is Maximus, and yes that is over Sucks and Hop Stoopid, I can usually get it pretty fresh and at under $9 a 6 and avaliable year round what is not to love. Sumpin Sumpin, Sumpin WIld, Imperial Red, Dogtown Pale, Sucks, Hop Stoopid and IPA.... That is just a killer hop showcase right there!

    I've had Hop Stoopid and thought it was fantastic. Sumpin, Sumpin was pretty decent, nothing to write home about, however I wouldn't turn it away if it was free. I thought the Imperial Red was just fantastic, right up there with Nugget Nectar, which is my favorite all time beer.
  3. As a brewery overall Lagunitas is probably the best "bang for your buck" IMO. (Id throw Smutty & SN in discussion as well).

    Alright cool guy, it wasnt a challenge to get drunk or to see who can drink more. I could have it myself if I wanted but there is nothing to prove. We had our drinks on the side, this was just for taste.
  9. Sucks is one of my top 10. At least today. Tomorrow I might have a different top 10.
