    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.

    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.

    Sucks is one of my top 10. At least today. Tomorrow I might have a different top 10.
