So good on tap!!! more plz!
I thought that Hopslam was out of this world good (I had to trade for it, again) and I totally agree that so long as this is on the shelves that all others will have to wait. Love this stuff - I just hope that the the east doesn't have to wait for the Chicago facility to come online before the 32 ouncers become a year-round option.
Are they still going to release 12 oz'ers seasonally?
I really hope that this stuff finds it's way to be year 'round. What a QPR!
This beer sucks!!!! In a good way..you know...a GOOD way..hehe. I would put this up against Hopslam any day. This beer would be great as a year round brew but it is in my regular rotation when available regardless.
I've been drowning in it for the past month
Agreed. I have maybe 6 more and the hops definitely starting to fade, but still a power bomb.
Even when Lagunitas f***s something up it is pretty good!!
Fresh kegs of Sucks and Sumpin Sumpin about to hit the draft lines...cannot wait...
I had my first Hopslam and my first Sucks this year and I thought Sucks was a slight step down from Hopslam; of course, that could have something to do with the fact that the Hopslam I had was a growler and the Sucks was in a bottle. Good beer for sure, but my vote goes to Hopslam.
I tell ya what.. The Sucks I have right now is kickin' some ass good.
I have some Hopslam and it's a good beer, but the flavor of Sucks is just so juicy and good..
If someone sat me down and said I could have a Hopslam or a Sucks.. I'm takin the sucks.
Picked some up this weekend, first time having it, very good IPA.
I get cases for 30 bucks even its great working at a liquor store hahahahaha can't wait to crack some of theeses bad boys open
We seem to be losing our supply out on LI. I'll have to check around the area this weekend as I'm down to my last two bottles...
On the bright side, Little Sumpin' Sumpin' was on tap at my local store recently and they've been getting in fresh sixers of it. Not a bad transition.
I'm totally okay with Lagunitas not releasing Sucks all year round. Just as long as they keep it coming in the regular rotation. I like variety, and NONE of their beers are bad. So, even without Sucks, I'll be happy with Brown Shugga, Undercover Shutdown, Lucky 13, Maximus, etc. All delicious.
Drinking it right now as we speak. Must restock.
Sucks has been tough to find in my area and fresh Sumpin made for a good substitute last weekend. The two are fairly similar imo.
I agree. I was actually surprised how similar I found them, having not had Sumpin' Sumpin' before.
I drank citra and this side by side and i
Chose this by a Hair. I bought a case and my fridge is full but i need more!!!!
Where you at on the Island brother? Still on the shelves over my way.
I'm out on the north shore by Stony Brook. My local shop got a case or two in just last week, which was nice to say. It's starting to lose a bit of its hop punch but remains extremely delicious.
Just saw the new edition of the New Beer Guide from Brewhound and it has the release of "Lagunitas Sucks Quarts" slated for 10/1/2013
Sorry about the misspelling it was from a "Brewbound" news letter.
That should be declared a national holiday!
OH HELL YES
This beer is not describable. Right when you think it to be cloyingly sweet it fans out into some roastiness and balance that remains intriguing. I like to drink two of these and talk politics and religion.
My favorite IPA...
humana humana humana
funny how this beer wasn't insanely popular it's first year, but from what I understand the recipe changed a bit and the second year's version was a more intense beer.
I was introduced to Brown Shugga by my old roommate, and we loved it...then I happened to stumble across Sucks one day, read the label, and then it was off from there. Next time I went to that store, it was gone. Shoulda bought more.
Can't wait for this. Picked up a 6er of Maximus this past weekend and was thinking 'damn i wish this was Sucks'
Seriously, quarts of SUCKS!??!?!?!?? YES.
It was insanely popular the first year. It was the popularity of the first year that drove the hype of the second year.
I also think it tasted better the 2nd year, way better than the 1st year IMO
Like it but my heart goes to Brown Shugga every time. It was a long and tough winter when it wasn't brewed and Sucks just couldn't fill the void.
Tony said a few days ago that Sucks would only be in Cali for the time being this year.....
Until the Chicago brewery can finally start producing beer, then Sucks will be distro'd out.
Sucks is on the way? So's Christmas. Something tells me Christmas will be here first.
Can we get confirmation one way or another whether this will be in six-packs again this year? My Googling skills turned up nothing.
